This new style of @meandering_maker possibles pouch hasn’t had much air time yet, but I’m considering putting it on my site soon. I made this and a smaller one for my trip abroad recently and it has been a centerpiece of my #edc pack setup ever since. The bottom is “boxed” meaning the corners are pulled in to create a flat bottom, but unlike my (or any other) rectangular pouches, the top corners are left alone, leaving a wide, corner-to-corner opening the gives you really easy access to the entire contents of the pouch. Because of the nature of the construction - and science - the opening is wider than the base, so you can see down into every corner. Best of all, the flat bottom means the pouch stands up in its own, making it arguably the most convenient and useful piece of organizational kit I own. You know this is true for sure because I not only use it in my #edc pack, I carry it around the house because it has my phone charger, laptop mouse, backup charger, extra batteries, meds, keys, a compass, and a small length of 750 cordage I carry with me just in case. . . .
It’s made of the same sturdy 15oz waxed canvas that my packs are made of, and is lined with lightweight 6oz waxed canvas to add stiffness, extra protection from the elements, and because details. This particular example is in the increasingly popular Sage color on the outside and the lining is a classy and mellow Chocolate color (to match my personal travel ruck ). If this pouch were part of an outdoor gear kit, though, I would likely line it with the same blaze orange canvas I’ve started lining the zipper pouch of the 3 Day Pack and my box-shaped possibles pouches with for extra visibility and dual use as an energy signal. . . .
Let me know if you think this would be a useful addition to your kit and/or if you’d like to see it for sale on my site, and thank you as always for your input!
