What pocket do you find the most useful ?
D&L Side Zip Long Pocket or Hybrid Top Zip Long pocket.
I need some to use on my EMR.

Good question, it seems to have been asked often. Do a search and you will find all sorts of info and opinions.

It all depends on your specific needs / wants. Bottom line; (I think) the side zip may offer a few more options.

I use the full zip LP with a XL mesh pull out on the inside.In this way if I pull the zipper to far all my gear stays out.I also like to be able to see all my gear at a glance.Mine are normally filled to the max.
On the other hand the hybrid looks like it could do double duty as an expedient set of mittens in a survival situation.

Little trick for those folks out there who like the access of the side zip but the stuffing ability of the top zip...

Zip the zipper closed most of the way and hold it while you stuff into the small opening. Essentially making it into a top zip model.

Wolfmen, Thanks for the link.

I had done a search before I put up this topic.
I just wanted to know what pockets most people found the most useful on a regular use basis.

I think I'm going to order one of each today.

Thanks to all for the input.
