The Maxpedition PUP Phone Utility Pouch is a practical EDC organizer that can store surprisingly much. The phone compartment protects your smartphone. Use it to organize your pocket knife collection or as a daily EDC kit.
The Maxpedition PUP is enhanced with two compartments: a smartphone compartment and a large main compartment with YKK zipper. The main compartment contains an elastic pocket that is slightly translucent to make sure you can see what is inside.
The smartphone compartment in the front has enough room for a normal smartphone. Due to the elastic straps the phone always stays in place. The flap that ensures the phone stays in place on top is also very practical. Not only because your phone will stay in place, but also because by lifting the flap you will also lift the phone, making it easily accessible.
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 back of the bag is enhanced with a solid MOLLE web with two TacTie PJC3 Polymer Joining Clips. With it you can attach the PUP to a MOLLE web. You can also weave the clips through to create a belt loop. This belt loop enables you to carry the PUP from your belt.
Maxpedition thought carefully about the materials they used for the PUP. 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.
