Nice organizer

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for a friend and he uses it for his toiletries. It works perfectly!

I’m a bit of a gear organizing/bag freak. Bought my first one of these prior to a multi-day river fishing/float trip to organize toiletries in a dry bag. It worked so great that I’ve since purchased the other two sizes. These are made from the light sil-nylon type stuff so weigh very little—but weigh more than a Ziploc bag for extreme gram counters and more than the eagle creek zippered ditty bag things (yeah—I’ve got those too). That said, my OCD to organize outweighs my OCD to eliminate grams so these are staples on any travel (toiletry), bikepacking (one for toiletries, one for bike repair kit) and now one to organize my electronic accessories (laptop charger, cables (phone, ipod, gopro), headphones, memory (flash, SD card etc.,), point & shoot camera). You’ll find enough pockets, zippers, dividers etc., in each one to organize your small stuff so you don’t have to dump entire contents of a the bag you’re using to get at one item.

Essential travel kit

These organizers are great for multiple uses. Makes for a perfect backcountry kitchen to store all of your utensils and cooking supplies. Also great for traveling to hold toothbrush and other small items that tend to get lost in a big bag.

Lightweight Organization

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What a quality piece of gear! I purchased the OR Backcountry Medium Organizer was to organize (dah). Through it in your bag or in your lid and know where everything is. I use it for my kitchen/mess items, fire starting stuff, batteries, line, and my head lamp. My xBowl and cup fit great too. It is nice sitting by the fire knowing i have everything in reach without having to get up after a long day of hiking.

There are tons of pockets for storage, its lightweight and it expands to fit oddly shaped items. The material is durable and resist water and dirt. This would make an awesome bag for a first aid kit too.

Pretty badass little unit....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use it to hold all the small hunting items I'd rather not have in my pockets (knives, saw, advil, gloves, etc.)Works like a charm except the ringy dingy zippers. Ended up cutting them off and replacing with 2.5mm cord. No problem. It'd be cool if it in came in camo. Then again, it'd be cool if a lot of hiking gear came in camo since most of the camo gear available pretty much sucks....

Nothing beats organization.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had an older style of this organizer for probably 8 or 9 years and I just recently bought this newer model in medium. I use mine for a home made first aid / survival kit. The large pockets are great for separating gauze pads, sterile gloves, triangle bandages and your trusty compass and pocket knife. The smaller compartments then further sort your band aids, emergency whistle, and single serve medications. I wouldn't rely too much on the water resistance; especially after it has been in the bottom of your pack for six months, but usually my jackets and gear are packed around it to keep it clean and dry.

I highly recommend it to those OCD organizers out there.

Very handy organiser

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got the small originally but will upgrade to the medium (the small looks similar but no tabs for the toothbrush - different pockets instead).
Many zippered compartments (and pockets) handy for sorting bits into various places, but even with all of them it's very light. Currently using the small as a first aid kit to get a couple of compression bandages along with lots of other pills, lotions, swabs and thin dressing pads (and could still jam more in if i needed). Will be getting the medium to see how that goes (gear junkie!). I've taken it in and out in a light rain but not really tested it by dunking it. Not sure it would ever get to that point!
All around a great organiser.
