EDC Admin / Organisers


Admin pouches, EDC organisers call them what you like, I love them, it's a fetish that I barely keep under control.

Ever since I was a kid I've always loved anything that unzipped, laid flat and presented in a logical easy to scan manner, all the ultra useful, ultra necessary tools inside! Told you, absolutely nuts but it is a good system of organising your everyday needed items and transporting them in a way, that makes them easy to find and use. Yep still nuts : )

L/R CONDOR T&T, MAXPEDITION MINI AND MAXPEDITION MICRO ORGANISERS

So this post is all about my x4 off Admin organisers. Work, Play, Power and Cigars.

#1. 12H RUCKSACK FRONT-UP ADMIN:

TACTICAL TAYLOR ENHANCED ADMIN IN 1000 CORDURA

This is for all that very useful, easy to lose in the bottom of your rucksack kit, that I will need during my hikes. Ranging from Lighters to Flashlights to Sporks, I found this to be so useful, it makes me wonder why more rucksack companies don't design them into their products.

EVERY PLACE HAS A THING AND EVERYTHING HAS A PLACE, JUST AS I LIKE IT : )

This kit is based around a Tactical Taylor Enhanced Admin pouch. This is a great piece of kit and as such I haven't had to modify at all. I have however made a cobra weave Paracord handle, which joins the two MOLLE straps together. This makes them easier to pull out when the pouch is mounted on my rucksack and also keeps together so, less likely to loose.

UNIFIED MOLLE MOD. QUICK RELEASE AND STAYS TOGETHER

I'm impressed with how much kit I can carry in this pouch without it getting too bulky. This being the main reason I swapped and upgraded this from my original up-front admin pouch.

What do I carry in my Tactical Taylor Enhanced Admin pouch? Here's a list.

#2. THE EDC - BUSINESS, LIFE, TRAVEL, EVERYTHING:


From day to day You will find this on my desk at work, under my arm or in my Chapman bag and is exactly what it says in the sub header. This is the kit I use everyday for business and life.

EDC CONDOR T&T ADMIN LOAD-UP

My EDC is based around a Condor T&T pouch and was the first admin pouch I bought and can't really be improved upon, kind of like a first love I guess. No mods have been made but I have added a Hazard 4 ID patch to the front and used one of the supplied MOLLE straps as a carry handle.

This EDC is useful especially for air travel as my carry on, carry on. In this situation you will find it on my lap or in the pocket on the back of the seat in front of me, with the addition of some wet wipes fruity sweets, pain relief and tickets and boarding passes etc.

So what do I carry?

#3. AUXILIARY POWER MANAGEMENT (Charger/Battery):

POWER SOURCE LOAD-UP

10 years ago, who would have thought that a kit like this would be so important for all our devises, especially my iPhone. I can almost run my business from any coffee shop, bar or park bench come to that but in the heat of battle it is easy to lose track of your charge, which can make the difference between answer an email now or if you are slacking of on a sneaky hike, hours later when you get back to civilization.
Being mobile is great but creates problems of it own, that this kit solves. And keeping it like this means I can grab it for a day hike, holiday abroad or business trip without thinking too much.

#3. AUXILIARY POWER MANAGEMENT (Charger/Battery) GEAR LIST:

• Maxpedition Micro Mini Organiser
• Ravpower battery
• OPSO USB
• AAA batteries

#4. THE CIGAR BUDDY:

NOT MANY COMPANIES PRODUCE A BETTER RANGE OF ADMIN ORGANISERS. ABOVE THE MINI ORGANISER

Yep I enjoy a cigar every now and then, especially with my wife, friends and whisky in the garden. It reminds me of when I was a kid and those who go before us. I will take this kit for weekends away, special dinners and nights out or you will find it by my easy chair in the back garden. A simple kit just the essentials to enjoy a good cigar.

CIGAR BUDDY LOAD-UP

This works fine for now but I do feel that the Maxpedition mini organiser pouch, although great, might not cut it with-in some circles. I have it mind that one day I might invest in something a little smarter, perhaps something from Peter James Leather!.

#4. THE CIGAR BUDDY GEAR LIST:

• Maxpedition Mini Organiser
• Visol Stainless Steel Cigar Cutter
• Caseti Jet Flame Lighter

IN CONCLUSION:
My fetish for organisers might be considered a little eccentric but think about this...
Everything where I need it
When I want it
Without having to think too much about it
That makes me feel all warm inside : )
