    I carry mine in one side of the laptop pocket of my Rush Delivery Messenger Bag. I use it for admin items only (pad, pens, pencil, scissors, etc...), this way when someone that I'm with needs a pen or something, I can just hand the pouch to them, and the rest of my EDC stays in the bag. I use the map pocket for when we are traveling, or at amusement parks and malls to hold the layout and local maps.

    It also holds spare Velcro patches.

    Here is the cover, just a holding place for the extra patches I can rotate to my bag as I'm in the mood:

    And the back pocket with a Sharpie, highlighter, Leatherman Squirt PS4, Zebra F-701, and a M-301 pencil:

    The rest is empty, and used depending on what I need given the circumstance I'll be using it in. Additional items would be: tickets, passes, ID, etc...

    It's useful, but honestly it bulks up fast. I store batteries, Leatherman Wave, bits, and other stuff in it.

    The opposite is the case for me: I have used the monkey admin pouch for many different things, and that is exactly why I like it. I have used it as an "entertainment" bag (for example to take on bord planes, longer bus drives etc) with mp3 player, (a psp back then), cellphone, pencils and a sketchbook, anti sickness paracebos etc. I have also used it as a bag for writing accessories, like a pencilcase. I mainly use it while travelling - it then hold tickets, my wallet, a pencil, important papers, occasionally a small folding map, passport and stuff like that. The only thing I don't like about it is the massive velcro closing system - its very loud. But you can easily fix that by covering half of it with a velcro band. Yet it also has an advantage: If you attach the MMAP to a backpack (I rarely do that, but it's not bad for that purpose either) nobody can steal your pencil (or worse) without making a whole lot of noise! :)

    I don't use it all the time, but I will not sell it as it comes in handy from time to time for different tasks.

    Best regards!

    I use the Janus in a similar way but id find the form factor to slim for my own uses,but the tickets,passport thing does sound a really good idea

    I had one before, sold it, and just bought another one, but it is for sale also. I had an idea on how to use it, but it didn't work like I planned.

    I'm leaning more towards the Monkey Combat Stealth Admin Pouch. Any of you guys using this version and if so how do you like it??

    I have one, I've never used it but I've been playing with it.
    It is pretty much Velcro free, and has a lot more room, but it is about twice as thick empty as the original one. And it looks like it will really lend itself to over stuffing.

    Something that has always bothered me about the original one is the amount of Velcro. Not that I mind Velcro, it's just it seems like it would be way too noisy for it's original intention. Whether for military, law enforcement, or even airsoft and paint ball, I couldn't imagine using it in a tactical situation. Just think, you're on a giant airsoft field, crouched down behind an old burnt out car, hiding from the guys that play the field 4 times a week, and you buddy says "Check the map, and see where we are", the next sound is RRRIIIIIIIPPPPPP!

    Anyway, Ros has a good video on it:

    I thought about getting one and removing a seam in the elastic (that seperates the sections in the strip) so that my Glock 22 could fit in it like a make-shift holster.

    Is the pouch tall enough for my Glock 22 to fit inside in a vertical muzzle down position?

    It won't fit vertically, it's only 6.25" deep.

    one is a permanent attachment to a pygmy falcon; on the front it's a natural fit...the other is a standalone that carries different things according to my needs, especially when i travel by air...right now that one is attached to the side of a colossus which i am using as my 2nd carry-on piece...

    This is where I think it would definitely excel. It is perfect for holding travel documents, especially if you can attach it to the outside of your carry-on.:agree:
