A few months back I was looking for something to hold my pocket stuff that I would unload when I got home. My usual MO is to just unload it onto the kitchen counter and leave it there until the next time I go out. That wasn’t being received as domestically acceptable anymore so I had to figure something out to keep the peace. I saw the dump trays from We the people Holsters and decided to order one in the flag design.

The tray is made from Kydex and has one square compartment in the Star section of the flag and the stripes section has ridges representing the stripes. The star compartment is just about the perfect size to hold your wallet or keys and the stripes with the ridges are good for all the little roll around stuff that tends to be in pockets. The dimensions are as follows:

  • Exterior size: 13” X 11”
  • Interior size: 10” X 12” with the small compartment measuring 4” X 5”

I liked it so much I purchased a second tray. I keep one on the nightstand and one on a shelf by the door. This way I always have a place for my keys, wallet, Swiss Army pocket knife, 5.11 flashlight, and any other miscellaneous stuff I either want to dump off when I come in the house or have nearby at night. Price is $19.00 and they come in black, carbon fiber, tan as well as a couple of other designs.
