Organization is king when it comes to an efficient EDC. Part of striking the perfect balance of convenience and capability is finding the right size to manage all your gear. Too many or not enough pockets, ill-fitting compartments, or even pouches that take up too much space all have their share of issues for storing and retrieving your essentials. So with plenty of experience building bags for every walk of life, Aer set their sights on optimizing their organization, too. Their new Slim Pouch is a sleek and simple way to keep your everyday essentials in check, built with the same robust materials and details that have become signatures of the brand.

The Slim Pouch sets itself apart as one of the smallest organizer pouches in Aer’s lineup, smaller still than their Dopp and Cable Kits. It’s built with the same 1680D CORDURA nylon exterior you’d find on many of their bags, matched with YKK zippers for both the smaller front compartment and its large main compartment. A quick-grab webbing loop makes it easy to slip the Slim Pouch in and out of larger bags, and the tapered design makes it one of the easiest pouches to pack with, even when fully stocked.

The front compartment is sized right for pens or other flat essentials like flash drives or even a multi-tool, and the sealing zipper and garage for the pull ensures better protection from the elements. The main compartment zips open wide, and features Aer’s smooth gray nylon for the interior lining. In addition to the larger main area (where I personally store a large power bank, flashlight, and a spare battery case), you get a solid combination of divided mesh and elastic pockets for cables and smaller gear, along with a zip pocket and extra long compartment perfect for a thin notebook or items like a passport or boarding pass. Since the compartment opens wide, everything is visible at a glance, and easy to retrieve, much like the Slim Pouch itself.

When your bag’s organization isn’t up to snuff or you want to take your pouch game to the next level, Aer’s Slim Pouches are a solid choice to stack and store your EDC. Pick it up in three colors from Aer at the link below.
