Yes, you can stash small EDC items in a pouch on your backpack. Problem is, that leaves you stuck having to carry your backpack everywhere – not exactly the ideal cargo when you just want to have a pocket knife and a few essential tools on hand. The Peak Design Field Pouch V2 offers a more versatile alternative.
Billed as “the ultimate wing bag,” it’s a multi-purpose container that’s designed for use as both an in-bag organizer and a standalone EDC pouch. Need a small pouch you can use to neatly hold cables, chargers, power banks, and other EDC essentials for a day around town? Yep, this will work. How about a small bag to keep your mouse, USB cables, and small work peripherals, so they don’t end up cluttering your backpack? This will work, too, making it quite the versatile addition to your daily stash, however you’re spending the day.
The Peak Design Field Pouch V2 is a small pouch that measures 9.4 x 7.5 x 0.4 inches (width x height x thickness) when empty, making it ideal for holding small items, whether it be EDC tools, work peripherals, or electronic supplies. It has a 1.5-liter capacity, but an expandable design allows it to double its capacity to 3 liters, blowing up to a bigger size of 10.6 x 9.8 x 4.3 inches (width x height x thickness) for those times you need to hold a bit more stuff than usual.
When used as an organizer, you can just slide it inside your backpack like any pouch that you can take out and detach when you need access to its contents. As a standalone EDC pouch, you can use the integrated belt loops for mounting it around your waist to keep your stash within easy reach, as well as attach the adjustable hook strap for carrying over your shoulder or across your torso like a sling bag.
The Peak Design Field Pouch V2 uses eight internal stretch pockets that let you arrange your gear as you see fit, making it easy to stash each item in its own section in an organized manner, while a zippered pocket inside the same main compartment lets you secure valuables in an enclosed space. The entire main compartment, by the way, is covered in felt, which should provide the necessary protection to keep nicks and scratches away any gear you store inside. A rolltop design enables the pouch’s expandable function, with a hook-and-loop closure allowing secure but easy access to your stuff as you need it.
Construction is 400D nylon canvas for the main shell, so it’s durable enough to hold up to the daily grind its bound to experience, while a weatherproof coating ensures its content stay dry, no matter the weather. It comes with leather and Hypalon details, as well as two attachment points designed to fit the outfit’s Capture Clip that you can use to secure cameras, binoculars, and similar devices to the pouch’s exterior.
The Peak Design Field Pouch V2 is available now, priced at $44.95.
