    I'm looking at buying an admin pouch soon, but I was trying to think of what I would want to place in it. I've looked through a lot of the topics and the images of others, but what do you carry in your admin pouch? I wanted to see about getting a consolidated answer to the spread out images.

    I like how you are apparently pre-buying gear in anticipation of a need. If there is any bigger sign of a gear junkie, I don't know what it is.

    Well I do have the need. I work in IT, so I plan on carrying a small screwdriver with phillips and slot head bits, a couple precision screwdrivers for laptops, a notebook, a couple of pens, my gerber mp600, and a couple other tools I like to have with me. I just think others have already figured out commonly used items to keep in their admin pouch that I may be ignoring. Or possibly I could move a couple of my tools out to the Voodoo Ergo bag I carry now with tools and cables in it.

    But I wouldn't argue the gear junkie. :p

    What's commonly used is going to vary from person to person, and that's compounded if the items in question are related to one's occupation. Seems you've got a good chunk of the potential load planned out for the pouch. If you prefer having all of those tools in one place and the option of taking them alone or dropping in some other bag then perhaps an admin is the best way to go.

    I'll configure the pouches with different gear depending what activities or places I will be going. The nice part of using the pouches is that you can create modules that you can pull out without having to dump your bag out.

    Hi guys, well, I recently purchased a Maxpedition admin pouch and the small Condor one as I wanted to see them in person and decide which one I would use. I love them both, but I feel that putting even half of my stuff in them makes them bulk out too much and look unattractive. Wasn't there a thread somewhere on this forum which was about photos of peoples admin pouches? I did a search but couldn't find anything. Appreciate a link. :) THANK YOU.

    That's why I made this thread. I can't find a consolidated admin pouch topic. People post there admin pouches on other random threads, mixed in with their other bags, bobs, fak, etc.

    As an "ADMIN" or as I call us "MADmins" cause we're a little loopy with g33k speak n such; anyways flashdrive pouches loaded with various av kits, hard drive recovery kits, and the like F.I.R.E. or HELIX toolsets, live distro's for our line of work, networking and packet analysis tools... anything we can throw onto various flash drives for the different kinds of work we do as Madmins.

    Then theres always a pack of live CD's and OS repair sets like slipstream Win98-Win2kP-XPpro-Win7 made with BartPE.

    You will of course find AutoIt as an indespensible Administrators roll out tool for multiple machines, and it works very well as a programming IDE. From which you can make AutoIt scripts to automate just about anything along with your own GUI designs and UDF's.

    IT geared software on Portable media is always the very best thing to have handy in your EDC.

    And before I forget theres always your Backtrack 4 and Ubuntu distro's as well as a load of 802.11 Wifi adaptor-usb dongles for wokfi work , USB-GPS dongles for your Access Point mapping software or geocaching work.


    On the hardware side, theres assorted portable routers with a small formfactor, you can have flashed with custom firmware for specific IT work, and a whole bevvy of 802.11 a/b/g/n antenna's , collapsible parabolic's, cantenna's worksets.

    By now you can see I'm one of them 802.11 Wifi G33ks :p

    I didn't want to carry a seperate case as I wanted quick access. As it turned out, the inner panel of my FII works perfectly. I'm kinda in IT as well and found these two tools from Home Depot made by Husky work great for smaller tasks.
