We've got another review article here this time we will be doing a review over the Maxpedition Beefy Pocket Organizer. I just picked one of these up pretty recently from Amazon and wanted to go ahead and share my thoughts about it. We'll cover several aspects of this pouch and I'll also share what I have in my Maxpedition Beefy Pocket Organizer as well. So let's get to it.
Features of the Maxpedition Beefy Pocket Organizer
First off I want to go over the dimensions of the Maxpedition Beefy pouch. It measures 6.25 inches in length, 8.75 inches in height and 2.5 inches wide. So there is plenty of room inside this pouch with these dimensions but I don't see how Maxpedition can call it a pocket organizer either. This isn't something that I would put in my pocket but it would make a great kit to have in your car or just to strap to your bug out bag for extra storage. One of the great things I like about Maxpedition's products is that they are made very well first off they use 1000 Denier water and abrasion resistant ballistic nylon. This makes the pouch very rugged and is able to stand up to a lot of punishment when in the field. Their is also a Teflon coating on the Maxpedition Beefy which further helps to protect the fabric from the elements. The Maxpedition Beefy also features all YKK zippers and slides where some companies will put YKK slides on generic zippers. The zippers are also equipped with paracord pull strings which are a nice touch in my opinion. In addition to the Teflon coating Maxpedition also uses a triple coating of polyurethane for increased water resistance. Just to take it another step further all stress points on the Maxpedition Beefy are either double stitched, bartacked or box and X stitched for increased strength. As with a lot of Maxpedition gear the Beefy Pocket Organizer features MOLLE webbing to attache to your pack, one thing I would've liked to seen is some MOLLE straps to go with it. Nonetheless I managed to figure out a way to attach the Beefy with a little paracord.
My Thoughts on the Maxpedition Beefy Pocket Organizer
Although I haven't had the Beefy for all that long yet I have to say that I really like it so far. It has plenty of room for what I plan on doing with it. Like I said earlier I would like to see it come with a couple of MOLLE straps to attach it to your pack. I love the fact that they are probably overbuilt for durability the Beefy seems like it could take a lot of punishment before it completely wore out. The handle is nice if you plan on having it in your vehicle or if you detach it from your pack in the field. I may end up wrapping the handle in some paracord just to have handy in a pinch. All in all I think Maxpedition did a fantastic job on the Beefy Pocket Organizer and I can see myself buying more of their pouches in the future.
My Maxpedition Beefy Load out
In the picture here you can see some of my load out for the Maxpedition Beefy. There are three other pockets that you can't see from this view but one is the mesh pouch in the front which I currently don't have anything in. The second is right behind the pliers, zip ties and flash light on the left, in there all I have is a write in the rain notebook for now. The third pouch is on the right behind the pocket knife and survival tin. That pouch has a zipper and contains a pair of high dexterity gloves, some AA batteries, triple antibiotic ointment and hydrocortizone. Now I'm kind of designing this kit to be an all purpose type of kit, so I have some survival items, everyday items, tools, and I plan on getting more gun cleaning supplies as well as a lock pick kit. Anyways on the left side of the kit I have some needle nose pliers, and side cutters in the back. Also attached to the D-ring is a small 6ft Milwaukee tape. Then in the front I have a small precision screwdriver, a small allen wrench, a pen, a carpenter pencil, a mini maglite, a few zip ties, and a sharpie marker. Then on the right side I have some larger items like in the spine there is a bottle of gun lube. Also on the right side is a Smith and Wesson Extreme Ops folding knife, a face paint kit, ferro rod, a Gerber Dime multi tool and my altoids survival kit with various maps of the area. So that's kind of the setup I got going now I'm planning on upgrading items, adding items and probably rearranging the kit in the future.
