    Just had surgery on my hand and I ended up way more immobilized than the doctor lead me to believe. All my pockets on my left side are totally inaccessible.

    I am looking for a sling for my arm that has pockets - inside or out - for my normal edc stuff. Like a giant skinth sling with a padded strap. Custom would be cool, but as this is an urgent, immediate need, off the shelf would be better.

    Thanks.

    I used to just slide things in my sling. One of those organizer inserts for a purse would work great. I think Eagle Creek makes something too.

    Maybe Skinth or a Skinth like product that utilizes a spring clip so you can just clip it to the sling and it will still use it after you heal up. I'm thinking something along the lines of a Niteize Clip Pock-its.

    And I hope whatever the issue is with your hand, it heals up fast.

    If I had the use of both my hands I could sew what I wanted in an hour.

    I found a number of interesting sling options include a sling in Mossy Oak breakup camo. Castcoverz.com has some interesting patterns and a sling with a cell phone pocket. CVS pharmacy has a sling with two pockets right on the shelf. For the time being I am carrying one of my Unikits jammed down in the sling. Hopefully the doctor cuts me loose on Monday.

    Thanks for your assistance.
