Assembling a comprehensive EDC is only half the battle. How you carry your gear matters more than you may think. Sure, pocket clips and lanyards make carrying things a little easier, but they don't always stop them from bouncing around in your pocket. What if you need to carry more than just a knife, wallet, and flashlight? Where does it all go? Some might tell you to pare down to the essentials but sometimes even that amount of gear might be too much for your pockets.

That’s where integrating an EDC pocket organizer comes in handy. It lets you organize your carry into a compact footprint that can fit in a pocket or a bag easily, and it lets you make sure you have everything in the proper place when you get to where you’re going. If you change bags often, you can take the essentials in one of these handy EDC pouches and transition to a new situation without missing a beat.

If this sounds like something that you could use for your own carry, we’ve put together this guide containing 15 of our favorite pouch and pocket organizers that you can pick up today to consolidate your carry and tackle any situation you find yourself in.

To prevent your critical items from falling out, each pocket is closable, and it all rolls up with a buckled closure for compact portability.

The ERZ is a special Maxpedition pouch because it takes advantage of custom-molded 1000D plain weave nylon fabric to add rigidity to the zippered pocket and provide an added bit of security for your gear especially if you carry more fragile and small implements on a regular basis. All the stress points on the pouch have been double-stitched and bar-tacked making it less prone to mechanical failure despite daily use as well. When you open up the inside of the pouch, the grayscale interior allows for easy identification of all of the gear you put inside, and there are various mesh and zippered pockets as well as elastic bands for all of your organization needs. And with the MOLLE webbing on the rear of the pouch, you can tack it on to compatible gear for ease of use.

One of OneTigris’s most popular products for EDC organization was more geared towards holstering a phone than carrying a full everyday carry loadout. The new Steel Sparrow version of the pouch nearly doubles the carry capacity, making it a more suitable pick for organizing the rest of your essentials besides your phone. Its top-loader design reveals internal elastic loops for clipping gear, with slip pockets for notebooks or other devices. Of course, it still has its signature phone holster and pen slot on the outside for easy access.

The minimal aesthetic of the Aer Cable Kit 2 belies just how much gadgetry and loose gear you can place inside instead of letting it all flop around in a large bag or luggage case. From the zippered exterior pocket to the numerous elastic mesh, loop cable, and zippered internal pockets this has enough space and organization space to carry your essential tech items and accessories and more. The wide clamshell zippered opening allows you to lie it flat when you’re at your desk, and the waterproof TPU-treated CORDURA fabric construction allows it to operate on its own if you choose to carry it around outside in the rain.
