I have a Maxped EDC on the way in green. Pretty excited about it.
Hi Stepewolf! Can you please tell me where you got your organizers from?
It costs more than 50 Euros to get a Maxpedition Pocket Organizer sent in Greece and I've been looking
for cheaper solutions. Yours look great, especially for 5 euros.
PS: I'd send a PM but apparently I am not allowed until I make 15 posts first. I really hope you see this.
I'm sure you could find one on ebay for a lot less
Thank you! That's what I did, I don't know how I didn't think of this sooner.
I actually found it on Ebay for 17 Euros (including shipping/handling and custom fees).
I don't understand the huge difference between Amazon and Ebay.
Thanks again, I'm sure others can use this piece of info too.
Here's video pt. 2 of my “MAXED OUT” series, about the items in the rear pockets (not including the detachable sub-section, for flat items, which will be featured in pt. 3, that can be removed and carried as a dedicated survival wallet, by itself, when traveling "light"). It includes some survival kit items (although I would by no means consider my kit “complete” for that) used for constructing emergency clothing, shelter, and water collection/purification.
This is also the “kitchen sink” section of the videos I spoke of earlier (household and tool box glues, liquids, etc) using the "straw trick" I learned about from others here, including some construction details and an extra storage option).
Sweet Jesus, Mzil. You must have gotten a masters degree from MacGyver University.
with honorable mentions! :laugh:
Vinny where did you get your Ti Chopsticks?
MacGyver U only requires that you carry a SAK and a paperclip. (Maybe a piece of gum)
Well said, Sir...Well said.
Maxpedition Pocket Organizer- MAXED OUT (pt 3)/ Urban Survival/Tool Wallet
Video part 3 is about a modular subsection (namely a vinyl credit card holder wallet insert) to store flat, wallet-sized items. I can either carry it opened up flat (like an open book) in the organizer's rear pocket, or closed, and on its own, as a dedicated “survival wallet” (when I want to travel light, without the main organizer).
P.S. MacGyver's trusty universal tool of choice makes a cameo in the video.
Or link to Youtube, complete with a description under the video with some other links, too:

I have a few more items to get for it. I want to add a knife, firesteel and tinder tabs.
Mzil's videos are outstanding. Genius application of how to properly organize and distribute items within these Pocket Organizers.
I think those are these chopsticks: http://www.snowpeak.com/tableware/cutlery/original-carry-on-chopsticks-sct-103.html
Glad to se im not the only one packing a SouthOrd kit around with me!
Whats that case for the mini bic?
Nice $23.30 american dollars and that includes shipping. (13.33 GBP)
That is what I thought too but the snowpeak ones say they are Stainless Steel with recycled baseball bat tips.
Nah they are twice the price and 50% heavier, they do have a nicer carry pouch.
Hi! This is my first post besides my intro on the welcome page, but I wanted to share with you my homemade pocket organizer.
All the commercially available pocket organizers seemed too big for me, so I figured I'd make my own. This is the second iteration of it. Things that would really improve making another one would be for me to use a more industrial sewing machine. I got this one because that's what fit my price range and was supposed to be more heavy duty- apparently it's not heavy duty enough. I mean, it pushed the needle well enough, but the thread tension is nowhere near tight enough. I even tried modifying the machine to make it tighter, but then it wasn't consistent.
Oh yeah, and pins. I should really use pins to hold it together next time I'm sewing one.
Anyway here's what I made to fit what I carry. It's sparse, but it fits most of my day to day needs.
And inside contents:
There's nothing on the back. Yet.
I'm proud of the screwdriver that I was able to shorten by about half an inch to better fit my pocket. I also need to tweak the settings I used for the laser cutter the next time I engrave a scale on the Norton's UCS again.
