Whereas I like a lot Maxpedition stuff, some of the items are head-scratchers in the design department, while others are just transcendentally perfect: this is one of those! It fits perfectly in the cargo pockets on BDU-cut pants (I haven't tried any others), and groups together all of the things I need in one place, without require that I carry a shoulder bag, or put on a Bat-belt of devices. Currently, it is holding my sunglasses, iPod Touch, cellphone, cigar cutter, lighter, one spare cigar, pen, writing pad, spare key and Timbuk2 money clip. And there is still room for other stuff! I could easily put a pocketknife in there, a passport, or with a little rearrangement, a J frame-sized revolver. Even as fully loaded as I can make it, it still closes easily, and slides easily into the cargo pocket. And, just as good, Maxpedition has put a lifting loop on the back so that it is easy to slide out of a cargo pocket, too.
