    Neat idea. Kinda like a Freudian Slip for non-office items.

    I'm checking them out...

    Maybe you could use a GRID-IT organizer from Cocoon Innovations. I just read about them yesterday, so I haven't tried them. They appear to be a grid of elastic bands on a semi-rigid foam backing. Seems like a good idea, but may be prone to snagging when accessing stuff.

    The TB Passport Pouch is a really neat idea, but it doesn't have a clear window on its face. I was wondering if the Clear Organizer Wallet (or a Clear Organizer Pouch) could be used as a travel documents vessel just as effectively as the Passport Pouch, and allow for "a peek inside". Would that work? I'm thinking that if I purchased a Clear Organizer Wallet or maybe a small-sized Clear Organizer Pouch, it could be used like a Passport Pouch during trips.

    I just added pics to the other thread showing that the wallet is not large enough for a standard passport. However, a small clear organizer pouch is large enough.

    It's "Pat"! No, "Chris"!

    Good gravy, I am on a roll with gender mix-ups these days. I was mistaken as well with Jiri (he's a guy) not too long ago. Sorry.

    It would be nice if English had a gender neutral pronoun that only meant a person (so not 'it'.) Well, until then I guess I should resign myself to my foot landing in my mouth semi-regularly.

    I know I could go with 'they' but that is plural, not singular, and bristles my grammar bone. The correct usage is 'he or she' but that seems cumbersome.

    While I appreciate the Synapse recommendation (I have not eliminated it yet), I am leaning toward the Ruk's Sack. The Ruk is only $70, and I like its design. If I were to choose a more expensive bag, I would likely by-pass the Synapse and spend an extra $10-20 for a Smart Alec or Brain Bag. The top two candidates are, (1: Ruk's Sack, followed by (2: Smart Alec, and the Ruk is way out in front right now.

    I would recommend the Kit. If you put them in in "69" orientation they will hopefully fit.

    The Kit would then neatly fit into the bottom pocket of the Synapse. No key-strap required.

    Mtnman don't go for anything yet!

    Place the walkie talkies on top of the CD and measure how much sticks out.

    I think that you should give the volume measurements (width, height, and length, including antenna) to a TB crew member and ask them if that would fit.

    I apologize for not being able to visualize the measurements and pictures to a real life 3D rock solid advice.

    I know that the Kit can fit a really big stack of Mini Organizer Pouches and it would be ok for the body of the talkie walkies but the darn antenna is in the way and after re-considering, I don't think it would fit.

    I believe the Medium Pouch would be fine, depending on the length of the antenna that sticks out of the CD case measurements.


    I understand your "need to know" before you buy, I did that with all the TB bags and accessories, I bought.

    Mini-bags like the Kit (thanks for the link, ex machina!) and the 3D Organizer Cube are a neat idea. No doubt about that. But I'm thinking that if I get a TB backpack I'd probably want to put the talkies into something I could easily hook onto one of the backpack's "O" rings, so the talkies will be easy to quickly retrieve while in the move. I would probably attach the talkies' container to a TB key strap, and then hook the other end of the strap to an "O" ring. (Instead of letting the talkies sink to the bottom of the pack and be difficult to fish out when loaded.) I have not ruled out an idea I saw Maverick using in his Ruk's Sack video, that being the use of a two-compartment Waterfield pouch; I'm just not sure how that would attach to a key strap. Nothing has been decided yet, but I'm leaning more toward organizer pouches for this.

    Thanks again for sharing your thoughts.

    No. It is a fixed unit.

    You are funny Mtman!

    I still think that the Kit is the way to go.

    Because your problem is the antenna, you can't remove it and the walkie talkies are chunky, compared to a CD and even the highlighters.

    So my thoughts are the Medium Clear or the Medium padded if you don't want the Kit.
