One thing that the pics fail to illustrate is how stout these pouches are. The lining is padded, then 1000 Cordura, then PALS webbing. 3-4 layers (elastic inner loops also) They hold their shape nicely, provide cushioning and a LOT of protection.

Consequently they're awesome for carrying electronic equipment. The elastic loops inside the pouch are great for segregating cables or accessories.

I have another couple for medical gear--specifically suction and airway management tools that would be damaged in a lesser pouch.

There really isn't a competing/equivalent product...

Oh, and pics...

...what are the 3 pouches on the back of the E&E?

Paraclete Small Utility 2x across the top. I can fit a pair of electronic ear pro in one of those pouches. I think TAG has a similar pocket but I don't think it's as deep.

Eagle Horizontal Utility across the bottom. The Eagle pouch has elastic running laterally across the inside for organization (evidenced by the vertical stitching midway across). Few imitators do that.

I favored this pocket setup on the face of my Scout because it offers lots of ways to organize/distribute the load, no matter what the application (urban/rural, nice/not-so-nice). When the G2 E&E came out, the option to apply this layout pretty much forced me to upgrade...

you have definitely given me some ideas for my E&E i have on the way. do you know if a kifaru organizer and 2 quart utility pouch would fit on the back of a g2 e&E. thats kindof the route I was wanting to go..

Simultaneously? No.

Organizer is pretty much a perfect fit on the back of any E&E.

2 QT is do-able also.

Now, if you want capacity and organization on the back of an E&E--almost too much--there's this lil' number...

Mount it between the E&E and the Organizer. Awesome organization, internal elastic carries 30 rd mags. You're going beyond what the E&E was designed for (maybe X-Ray straps?), but an awesome combo nonetheless...

Mel's observed that a JetBoil is a perfect fit:

The E&E i bought (from a member here) has the xray straps. (it also has a mini long pocket but I don't see myself using it very often as it seems too small for anything useful, maybe i'm wrong though)
I also bought 2 liter plus from another member the other day.
so thats what i'm starting with, now I have to start working on the back of the E&E
I want an organizer, but what other pockets would work at the same time without me having to stack the organizer on top of another pouch (like you suggested)? 2 "stash it's" below an organizer? Just trying to add as much volume as i can without stacking pouches on top of eachother

you know you can find mini rolls of duct tape that will occupy a lot less space and weight. I believe wal-mart might carry them.

By the way. What Strobe pouch is that?? I need one for mine. Cool set-up!

Those mini rolls are a waste of money, so I make my own. Just take a short piece of aluminum or carbon fiber arrow shaft and neatly wrap the tape around it. Viola! A small, lightweight, and cheap alternative!

I don't want to hear any crap about my duct tape. :)
You've obviosly never seen me fix anything before.

The strobe pouch and first aid pouch are from John Willis at OSOE.

Holy hell! "Bring out the gimp."

What on earth would one need that much duct tape for?

There's nothing that clears the mind better than mindless tasks, like rolling duct tape onto an arrow shaft :D

Wow HBAR cool to see an E&E used for E&E. Have you posted that loadout in detail?

One note on the OSOE strobe pouch: It gets its lithe appearance by using pile tape on the inside; that's the only retention save for the little hole to access the switch.

You put some self-adhesive hook tape on the strobe itself and then wedge the strobe (with a business card between the hook and pile tape to keep it from sticking into the pouch, then stretch the pouch so that the switch is centered in the slot that is cut for it. When you have everything lined up, slide the card out and press the hook and pile tape together.

It's an awesome little pouch for coolguys who pretty much "own" their strobes, and never use them in visible mode (matter of fact, common practice in some circles is to seal the edge of the bezel in electrical tape to eliminate compromise from visible light.

If you have to take the strobe out for any reason other than to change batteries (like to turn it in at the end of a training event), this may not be the strobe pouch for you. If you don't like cutting self-adhesive hook tape into dainty shapes every time you draw a strobe (supply folk HATE when you put velcro over the S/N), this may not be the strobe pouch for you. If you use the strobe in visible mode (working on a tarmac, or O/C or RSO) moving the IR bezel to the side can cause it to crack, and eventually fall away, and you also lost a little hook & pile traction. Once again, maybe not for you.

Hate to recommend offshore-built kit but the EMDOM strobe pouch doesn't care whether you're in visible or IR bezel mode, doesn't require self-adhesive velcro, protects that maddeningly delicate bezel and functions nicely as a pouch for a compass, anemometer, cell phone or a short stack of energy gels, and has some nifty little features like dummy cord loop, grommeted holes for light to pass through and loop tape for glint squares. Other US manufacturers used to do the same design, but migrated to glorified cell phone pouch designs that that don't protect the bezel nearly as well.

My $1.02 from the perspective of someone who uses both pouches...

Please direct questions and comments to the other thread.

STRAPS - Look at the pics more closely. You'll see a small eyelet on the left side. My strobe came with a length of cord that I looped through there.

I carry a roll of 3M Scotch Super 88 electrical tape in my Marauder to tape shut the IR cover - but not until I need to.
