If you’re planning to attend Shot Show for the first time, it’s important to make navigating the show as easy as possible. I frequently found my hands full while at the event, but I still needed access to my notes and phone to coordinate with the writing team. Thankfully, I was fortunate to meet Tim Tang at the Maxpedition booth. Thanks to him and the whole booth crew, I am able to bring you my review of their Double-Decker EDC Pocket Organizer. Read on to learn more about this awesome EDC organizer and where to get sick patches!

I like to stay organized, and my biggest pet peeve is losing stuff—maybe overly so. But Maxipedition put it best when describing their pocket organizers: “If it’s hard to find, it’s hard to use.”

These are perfect for the multitool enthusiasts out there. They can be secured to MOLLE and/or PALS webbing, and it goes without saying these pair well with the rest of their lineup. They come in five different styles, perfect for any configuration you need.

What is The Pocket Organizer Made Of?

1050 Denier Nylon

Denier is simply the name given to the width and thickness of the fibers that make up nylon. The term is similar to a thread count in sheets and pillowcases. According to MMI Textiles, “1050D Ballistic Nylon is a tough, durable, basket weave fabric. This fabric is certified for the military and was first made popular during World War II when it was created for anti-fragment jackets for the troops to resist bullet impact and debris from shrapnel. 1050D Ballistic Nylon is great at being water and abrasion resistant and is a very durable, versatile fabric.”. It’s typically used for tool belts, backpacks, horse blankets, chainsaw chaps, police belts, kayak covers, motorcycle gear, luggage, and tarps. Fun fact: it’s mildew-resistant! This material is perfect for the pocket organizer.

YKK Zippers and Tracks

YKK is a high-end zipper brand with the philosophy of “Cycle of Goodness – no one prospers without rendering benefit to others”. Their quality zippers are used in applications such as diving suits, winter sportswear, car seats, and space suits—yes, pressurized suits for going to space. As you can see, they are held to a very high standard and undergo rigorous testing. This is why companies like Maxpedition and Carhartt use YKK-manufactured products.

YKK’s Core Values

  • Do not fear failure; experience builds success.
  • Create opportunities for employees.
  • Insist on quality in everything.
  • Build trust, transparency and respect.

But First…Patches!

Maxpedition patches line up.

Not only does Maxpedition make top-quality gear, but they also make a wide variety of morale patches! They have patches for all walks of life. They’re super cool and stylish! I particularly love the “Time Flies” patch.

My Experience With the Maxpedition Double Decker EDC Pocket Organizer

Something that I immediately noticed about the Double-Decker EDC Pocket Organizer is its versatility. My phone fits perfectly in the front pocket, and I was even able to carry important medical supplies in the back pocket. This makes it a valuable piece of gear for those with chronic health conditions or as a general med kit. However, they do offer actual medical kits and medical patches, such as blood types.

It’s surprisingly lightweight. Just looking at it wouldn’t suggest so, but when it is completely empty, it weighs only six ounces. Because it is discreet, lightweight, and durable, I took it with me everywhere to get a comprehensive overview of its capabilities. I knew exactly where everything was and carried it on my wrist. I will say it’s slightly tough to unzip, but I believe that’s because it functions better on a pack than on its own. Other than that, I don’t have any complaints! 

About Maxpedition

Founded in 2003, Maxpedition products are trusted by special forces operators, law enforcement officers, travelers, and adventurers worldwide. The name itself is a combination of the words “maximum” and “expedition”. The Latin root of “expedition” is “ped” meaning “foot”. Hence, the boot print logo!
