Vanquest 2.0 Husky EDC Pouch

Modular pocket organizers can be a huge help when trying to figure out how to carry small multi tools, flashlights and other everyday carry items with you at all times. Sometimes you have to get a little creative, but with the Vanquest line of modular pouches and organizers, you can’t go wrong. The EDCM-HUSKY is the middle brother in the Everyday Carry Maximizer (EDCM) series.  It measures 8″ (L) x 6″ (W) x 2″ (D), features 21 of the Maximizer offset-stitched elastic channels, and 4 flat pockets that deliver unparalleled organization. If you are looking for a medium-sized organizer to accommodate most of your EDC items, the EDCM-HUSKY is what you need. This pocket organizer will comfortably fit into any BDU side pocket, for easy access and carrying.

Vanquest 2.0 Husky EDC Pouch

I have been using the EDCM-Husky Organizer for about a week now. I have played around with some different configurations. At first I wanted to keep it as more of a backup kit to my smaller primary SERE kit, but have realized it is made to carry more than just smaller tools. I have several items that I have multiples of, like a small pry bar, lighter, flashlight, small pocket knife, lock picking tools and wads of 550 cordage. This is a great organizer, but Vanquest definitely takes it to the next level. Utilizing the signature Maximizer staggered/offset elastic loops, you get more use of the internal space than other pouches using elastic webbing with shared stitches. Think of this as a layering effect.  Instead of just being able to use the loops and fasteners for one single item, you can add a second dimension and layer a tool on top of another tool, provided it will fit. It has an easy access front slip pocket for a small notebook and a removable 6″ double hook key chain.  More features and materials are listed below.


● One external and three internal storage pockets

● 21 elastic “Maximizer” webbing slots: Staggered and offset stitching on elastic webbing reduces unusable space

● Grab handle eases hand carry and removing from pockets

● 6” double hook keychain removeable tether and three 1” paracord attachment loops

● 2” (H) x 4.5” (W) ID/Morale patch loop panel on front

● MOLLE/PALS webbing on rear for modular attachment

● 1,000-D Military grade Cordura® fabric with water-repellent Teflon® fabric protector by      DuPont®

● Hi-visibility, lightweight & water-resistant 210-D Ripstop nylon interior.

● Durable RC-Class YKK® #8 zippers, reversed for protection.

● User-friendly, circular zipper paracord pulls

● High tensile strength nylon webbings and binding tapes

● Finished with high tensile strength bonded nylon thread

This is the first time I have used a Vanquest product but I am already sold based on the EDCM Husky Pocket Organizer. I will definitely be buying more of their tactical products soon, whether I keep them in my pack, in my car or on me while on the move.
