    Which pouch do I want?

    Hi folks - I'm waiting the Spiff Deluxe to come back in stock, but I'm doing a bit of forward planning. I have a beard trimmer, plus accessories, that I want to get a pouch for. I don't need to take it with me every day, so it doesn't need to go in the Spiff Deluxe, and now I'm wondering what pouch it'll fit into. It's about 7 inches long, so almost all of the medium sized pouches would fit it length-wise, but I'm concerned that the medium may not be deep enough for it. Do they expand out to a decent size? Or should I just 'size up' to a 3D mesh cube?

    Here is my hubby's beard trimmer (for comparison, his measures 6").

    1st, small OP .... Barely fits and difficult to remove

    3rd, I used a clear 3D cube because you can't see the trimmer when I photographed the mesh 3D cube....

      Wow! Thanks! That does help - you were on that! Looks like I want a 3D cube, just enough space to fit the trimmer and some of the guiding combs for it. Thanks again!

        @CrazyCatTim, How do you want to carry your beard trimmer, and what depth do you need? The 3D cubes are just about 7" long exactly: 7" x 4.3" x 2" / 180 x 110 x 50 mm. One option would be to use a Size #2 (Small) Travel Stuff Sack:
        • External Dimensions - 7.5" tall x 5.2" x 3.5" / 190 x 130 x 90 mm
        • Weight: 1.1 oz / 30 grams
        • Volume: 125 cubic inches / 2.0 liters


        Another option would be to use the Second Aid Pouch, which is sized like a Side Effect (so longer than a 3D cube, if the 7" length fit is tight), but with handles:
        • Dimensions: 8.3” x 4.9” x 2.2” / 210 x 125 x 50 mm
        • Weight: 4.2 oz / 120 grams
        • Volume: 90 cubic inches / 1.6 quarts / 1.5 liters (ASTM Standard Measure)


        Or, you could use a Medium Size Organizer Pouch, which is generally larger than your spec'd length (by more than the dimensions given above), but I don't know about the depth of your item. The Medium Yarn Stuff Sack would also probably work, though it's not as tall as the size 2 Travel Stuff Sack at 6" tall x 6.25" diameter / 150 x 160 mm), but it's wider, and has an attached clip, so you'd likely be able to fit your item in it, too. A little hard to make these judgements, since I don't know the specs of a beard trimmer! FWIW, my inclination, with no real knowledge beyond the specs you posted, would be to go for a travel stuff sack, followed by a second aid pouch if you need more space and depth, and general flexibility of storing other items. But, I'm pretty ignorant about the other requirements you have.

        ETA: Oops, ignore my post, since @Melissa provided better information, and clearly knows about beard trimmers! Also, I took the 7" length you gave seriously, since the external dimension of the 3D cubes is exactly 7", so that could have made the difference between fitting and not fitting.

          I *think* it'll fit in a 3D cube, as I did a really rough measure, and it seemed like 7" was close enough to what I was looking at. It seems to be slightly under 7", so I think it'll fit. The Travel Stuff Sack may also work as well.

            In the case Melissa gave, where the beard trimmer was 6" long, a size #1 (mini) Travel Stuff Sack would have worked. (External Dimensions - 6.3" tall x 3.8" x 2.6" / 160 x 100 x 65 mm). We tend to answer conservatively, based on the actual specs that people put into their questions, unless we have independent other information. YMMV.
