What's in your pocket pouch today?

I've been using my pocket pouch to store short cables for charging/syncing my iPhone and other devices. The open top means I can easily pull out the cable I need. I could hold a few more in the pouch, but here are the three that I most frequently use: USB 30-pin connector, USB lightning connector, and USB micro-USB connector.

6683

All the cables sit just below the top piping for easy access. Here's a picture of the connectors on top of a second Pocket Pouch:

6684

They're actually color-coded so it's easy to identify the type of cable: White is the CableJive Lightlinez lightning connector, Black is the Griffin 30-pin short connector, and Gray is the USB-Mini connector from my Jawbone Jambox. I can both quickly ID the cable I need and access it from the Pocket Pouch -- more convenient than using an organizer pouch or stuff sack, and hooks on to an O-ring.

Very nice pics. I love the green/Nordic combo.very peppy. In my ONLY pouch, I store seldom used credit cards, which sit in my desk drawer until needed. But I have another on order for customer service cards, which will stay in the car.

Sorry about the bad quality of the pictures: I use my navy/iberian for plastic-bags in my backpack so that we have always something to put our litter in when we are out and about (and even to put other peoples litter in because it is hard to explain to children why there is laing so much of it around and therefor we often end up collecting it to through it properly away).

The aubergine/wasabi caries the remotcontrol for my phone and mp3-player (one tiny thing that controls two rather larger items so that these can stay in the pocket/bag or wherever they are) and my "on the go" headphones. This one is in the Side Effect (or today for the first time in my Upper Modular Pocket) that I carry around at the time.

Looking at these photos I have two observations;
1. Now I know where all the Nordic went.
2. It's fun to see the different Pocket Pouch combinations. I think they are the most randomly combined TB item, and because of that, they make me smile.

@dorayme I think you have one of the neatest Nordic color combinations in the pocket pouches with Aubergine. But they really haven't been making any Pocket Pouches with Nordic for several months, and I think they're out of Crimson Ballistic now. I agree that the Pocket Pouch color combinations make me smile.

I'm going to have to agree, though the kiwi/Nordic pouch is full of awesomeness too!

I have a little Photon Micro Freedom Light attached to mine, and in the pouch itself is a tiny clip that turns the light into a headlamp. I've never actually had occasion to use it as a headlamp, but it seems like one of those things that I would be really, really glad to have around when the need arises. :) (Pics tomorrow when there is daylight!)

ETA: Now with peek-churs! :)

I have a Forest/Wasabi Pocket Pouch that I use for my Speedway Rewards card and money. I always have my hands full when I check out at Speedway so being able to simplify food/card/money is a plus.

Would love to have a matching Side Effect (cough cough....)

Maybe get another one for my phone....

dorayme--it is amazing to see how differently aubergine photographs--red purple vs blue purple.

Yeah, and those pictures we're taken within moments of each other, in the same spot. I guess it's an iPhone thing?

Maybe aubergine is like hazel eyes--constantly changing slightly in color!! :)

After resisting using my PP to hold cards, I've finally decided to be unimaginative and just use it to store my student ID, flash pay credit card, subway (MRT) card, and a couple other card-like objects. (I'd experimented with using it for hair ties, clips, granola bars... many things, but nothing felt like a good fit for the PP.) One problem I had with the COW, which I had previously used to store these things, was that while I could flash the clear window at the cashier for a student discount, I couldn't beep in and out of gantries to secured areas. When that happened, I had to unzip my COW, pull out the card, beep it, put it back in, and zip it up. It didn't feel like an elegant solution. (Especially when there were 10 people waiting behind me.)

Now, removing cards from the PP is much easier, so I don't miss having the clear window. Funnily, I'm no longer having the gantry problem with the PP. It's also smaller and lighter and the all-fabric surface prevents it from adhering to my Swift/LS's urethane pockets. Note to self: sometimes simplest is best!

A year later, and I'm using the PP for something different :-) It holds gastric tablets and plasters (band aids). I could use a mini OP, but the open top is very useful when you have a bleeding finger and want to fish out that plaster ASAP. (Personal experience...) I also like that the ballistic material is thick/strong enough that the foil packaging doesn't break, and that the plasters don't end up crumpled. It's hooked to a key ring that I installed in my EDC 3D MOC.

My pouch contains some business cards and a Swiss Army knife. The pouch goes from bag to bag, of course!
