The Maxpedition DEP Daily Essentials Pouch is a practical EDC organizer that can store surprisingly much. Use it to organize your pocket knife collection or as a daily EDC kit.
The Maxpedition DEP is enhanced with two closable compartments. It is of course closed off by YKK zippers. On the inside you will find oner compartment on the right and six different sizes of elastic straps to organize the individual parts from your EDC kit. The main compartment contains three pockets of which two are made from a slightly elastic material. These two compartments are slightly translucent to make sure you can see what is inside. The main compartment also contains three elastic straps that will help you organize your gear. At the top of the main compartment you will find another solid loop you can hang something from. The fact that Maxpedition thought carefully about the design of this pouch is clear when you look at the colour scheme. By making the inside light-grey it is in nice contrast with the gear you put inside. As such you will even be able to find your gear in dark circumstances.
The outside of the Maxpedition DEP is enhanced with many different mounting options. The front is enhanced with a female MOLLE web. Perfect to attach your MOLLE gear. Think of sheaths for multi-tools and knives. Above the front compartment you can find a piece of velcro (approx. 9x5 cm) perfect for Morale patches. On the top side of the Maxpedition DEP you will find a solid handle that enables you to carry it with you. On both sides of this handle you can find two solid D-rings. If you own a shoulder strap (not included) you can use it to attach it to these rings to turn this bag into a shoulder bag. The back of the bag is enhanced with a solid MOLLE web with two TacTie PJC5 Polymer Joining Clips. With these clips you can add the DEP to a MOLLE web. You can also weave the clips through to create a belt loop. This belt loop enables you to carry the DEP from your belt.
Maxpedition thought carefully about the materials they used for the DEP. As a main material they used Cordura 500D Hex Ripstop and Cordura 1000D. Sustainable fabrics that can handle dirt even better thanks to the Teflon treatment. The MOLLE system, Maxpedition calls this ATLAS (Attachment Lattice System) is made from 840D Nylon TPU composite.
Maxpedition AGR: Advanced Gear Research
For this AGR collection Maxpedition pulled out all stops with regards to product development. Moving forward from the Legacy collection, which put Maxpedition on the map, they looked at all aspects again. They took the type of zipper into account, the fabrics used, the material for clips and closures, the stitching: they did whatever they could to make these bags as reliable as possible.
