American Survival Guide - - GUIDE GEAR -

When Cen­ter Line Sys­tems owner Mark Laine was in the mil­i­tary, he cre­ated a pouch to hold all his ad­min­is­tra­tive gear. This pouch was de­signed to be used on var­i­ous op­er­a­tions to covertly trans­mit mes­sages and hold sen­si­tive nav­i­ga­tion equip­ment. That orig­i­nal pouch looked noth­ing like the lat­est ver­sion of the com­pany’s Ev­ery­day Or­ga­nizer.

The Ev­ery­day Or­ga­nizer (EDO) fea­tures dual deep pock­ets on the front and back cov­ers. There is a se­cu­rity strap with elas­ti­cized loops, as well as two elas­ti­cized straps to hold it to­gether. It can ei­ther be used by snap­ping the se­cu­rity strap di­rectly to the body, or it can be used with the elas­ti­cized loops and eas­ily slipped on and off. On the in­te­rior, the EDO has a clear vinyl win­dow that can be used as a writ­ing sur­face with a dry- or wet-erase marker.

The EDO comes into its own when used on the shoot­ing range to hold daily at­mo­spheric con­di­tions data, bal­lis­tic cards and pens/mark­ers. On nav­i­ga­tion prac­tice ex­er­cises, it was used to hold pro­trac­tors, flag­ging tape, pen­cils, pri­mary com­pass, chem­i­cal light sticks and small AAA pen lights. Some users will carry it on a daily ba­sis to or­ga­nize check­books, shop­ping lists and “honey-do” lists. The vinyl win­dow helps hold items with­out shift­ing when placed against it. There­fore, a folded map or other doc­u­ments will stay in place if hastily sand­wiched in­side.

MSRP: $65

Cen­ter Line Sys­tems’ Ev­ery­day Or­ga­nizer makes a great com­pan­ion on the trail or at the range when you need to ac­cess and add notes to maps, your shooter’s data log or other doc­u­ments.
