I work as a firefighter and EMT in the state of West Virginia. I work in and around the city of Morgantown which provides a very nice mix of both urban and rural incidents. My department runs around 1200 calls per year, and this product has been in my gear for all of them.
I was first introduced to this product by a firefighter from another department who highly appraised 5.11 and this particular item. At the time I had older model gear and my pant pockets consisted of large voids that everything just seemed to get lost in, so I was in need of some organization help. Asked for this item as a gift and received it soon after.
Produict is very nice and sturdy. It has been in my pockets for many varieties of calls. It has been sumberged in water, in wrecked vehicles, and in structure fires. I was surprised how well it stood up after 2 years of being treated badly. Even after I was issued brand new gear with internal dividers, I continued to carry this item. It really is that helpful. I just it to carry some EMS equipment and a wide variety of tools. The sharp points of the tools and their dirty nature has not damaged the product in any way and it continues to stand up well.
My only downfall is that it is difficult to adjust the internal dividers. Other than that, once in place they stay exactly where you put them no matter how heavy or awkward the tool. Another innovation by 5.11.
I just Love it
Great pocket organizer. I have all of my small hand tools IE. screw driver pliers and extra sheers in this and fits great in the G Extreme Bunker pants. tie downs go through the bottom two holes in the pants pocket to secure it.
