A zippered lay flat clamshell pouch, like our CellBlock M but on Organisational Steroids! This has been extensively tested by EDC nuts, as well as Dave our resident "digital nomad" who travels back and forth from NT to QLD.
Our EDC Pouch is a similar size to our CellBlock M, but opens up flat for sorting and organising your Digital Nomad or Every Day Carry items. Stacked elastic loops, slip pockets, zippered pockets and mesh pockets. More organisation and sorting than you can poke a stick at. We really should have called this the OCD pouch...

We joked earlier about this being a pouch on Organisational Steriods. Thing is, it isn't really a joke. Although small, this pouch packs a punch in the organisational stakes. Perfect for holding all your EDC items, or Digital Nomad gear. It has the ability to carry 2TB Portable hard drives, through to pens, and everything in between including A5 notebooks, BIC lighters, cables and multi-tools. If you carry it, chances are this pouch can organise it for you.
Starting from the outside of the pouch, on the front exterior is a slip pocket sized to fit A5 notes and papers. This is sealed by a #5 YKK zip so nothing will fall out accidentally. This pocket is quick access, meaning you don't have to open up the main section of your pouch to grab items. The zips are the same used on the inside of all our zippered backpacks and to date we have not had an issue. Overkill? Perhaps. Personally we prefer the word "perfect".
Continuing on with the zip theme, two #5 YKK pulls allow the pouch to be opened up flat ensuring easy access to all items. On the back interior wall is a pleated mesh pocket sealed by yet another #5 YKK zip. This style of pocket was adapted from our Spare Camel Backpack mesh pockets, and thanks to the pleated design expands out to hold a tonne of gear. Perfect for cables or smaller Shrapsac pouches (for even more micro-organising) the mesh ensures you can always see what is inside the pocket. This mesh is super tough, used on military chest rigs, and will be able to withstand the rigours of your daily life.
On the front interior wall is a slip pocket. This is large enough to stash A5 notebooks behind, or folded A4 notes. On top of this slip pocket is where the magic really happens. Two lines of elastic loop, one 25mm in width, the other 40mm in width are stacked on top of each other and stitched to run horizontally across the slip pocket. This stacked elastic is then stitched with varying dimensions, ensuring you can carry almost anything as small as a pen through to a standard sized portable usb-powered hard drive. The stretchy nature of this elastic allows the pockets to expand holding "lumpy" or differently shaped items. The elastic also provides firm pressure ensuring nothing shifts or moves during transport. Trust me, if you are a Digital Nomad, the last thing you want is your portable hard drive accidentally tumbling out of your pouch! Oh, and the "stacked" nature of the elastic means you can run items on top of each other for even more organisational goodness.
Finishing off the pouch, on the back exterior wall is four lines of clipping webbing. This is useful for hanging from the inside D-rings in your pack, or rigging up to our exterior Clipping Webbing or hip belt. Removable straps built for this purpose come provided. Our "EDC tester" even found a way to attach a shoulder strap here for use as a sling bag.
Outer: 500D Cordura. This is a very highly abrasion resistant material built to withstand your daily rigours!
Liner: 500D Cordura slip pocket, as well as Mesh pleated pocket. This mesh is normally used on Australian Military chest rigs, so will last the long haul... and then some.
