The smallest of the organizers, the Micro is 3.5″(W) x 5.5″(H) x 1″(D) and is small enough to fit into most side pockets or cargo-style pant side pockets.

In addition to using it as a gear organizer, we’ve used this for our small fire-starting kit.

The Mini is still small enough that it can be put it most cargo-style pant side pockets (and some side pockets) but is large enough that it can hold a 3″x5″ notebook. At 4″(W) x 6″(H) x 1″(D) we’ve also used this as a personal first aid kit, holding bandages, medication, and other necessities.


Maxpedition E.D.C.

A best-seller, the E.D.C. Organizer is a great in-between of being large enough to hold your gear without taking up much room. At 5″(W) x 7″(H) x 1″(D) it comfortably holds a 3″x5″ notebook and our  Adventure Medical Kits Travel Medic, along with a backup folder, flashlight, gear ties, paracord, and more. You’ll be surprised how much can fit in this.


Maxpedition Fatty

Almost double the thickness of the E.D.C. but the same height and width, the Fatty measures at 5″(W) x 7″(H) x 1.75″(D). It allows for a lot bulkier gear and we’ve found that we can really pack this full, making it a great survival kit that can be thrown into a go-bag or in the console of your car.


Maxpedition Beefy

The largest organizer at a whopping 6″(W) x 8″(H) x 2.5″(D), the Beefy is ideal for flashlights, hand tools, large knives, 16 oz bottles, heavy cables, and other fuller-sized gear. A full clamshell opening reveals a hefty main compartment, containing 15 elastic dividers and 2 large slip & zippered pockets.

Regardless of which you go with, you’ll quickly find that these organizers can simplify your carry by separating out first aid from survival from fire starting from the stuff you access multiple times a day.
