Some call it a man purse, I like to call it an EDC kit. Whatever you want to call it, the Vanquest Husky EDCM Maximizer 2.0 is a great organizer for your everyday carry kit for things like flashlights, knives, multitools, paracord, plasters, etc, I actually think it is the best EDC organizer I have ever owned! In this post, I will do an in-depth Vanquest Husky EDCM Maximizer 2.0 Review so you can see the numerous features this EDC organizer has to offer, and explain why I think this is the best EDC pouch I have owned to date.
The Best EDC Organizer Pouch
I like to try and keep my EDC kit organizer as simple and neat as possible, with as few useless items in it as possible, you won’t find those “tactical cards” or a survival knife in there, but you will find things that are useful to me every day.
So, I bit the bullet and bought what I now think is the best EDC organizer, the Vanquest Husky EDCM Maximizer 2.0. From the specs Vanquest state, it seemed like it fitted my needs perfectly, a neatly structured EDC organizer, with plenty of elasticated straps and pockets to fit all my gear.
The EDCM Husky is the middle brother in the everyday carry maximizer range Vanquest has, and offers many different features, which I will list below.

Vanquest Husky EDCM Maximizer Review
Now lets get down to the Vanquest Husky EDC Pouch Review. This EDC organizer has a very clever design, with numerous pouches and elasticated straps to keep all your EDC items in place. It is a lot easier to carry around than a backpack, and can fit all the items you would ever need to carry with you on a daily basis. I am very impressed with the layout of this EDC pouch, and really love how easy it makes storing my gear. The overall design of the pouch is great, it looks asthetically pleasing to the eye, feels tough, and the material is indeed water resistant! This really is the best EDC pouch I have used!
What I have found with EDC organizers, that overtime, the stitching tends to wear out, and starts coming loose, but, so far with the Vanquest Husky, this has not happened. The EDC pouch is very well constructed, and feels like it will last a very long time.
The Vanquest Husky EDCM Maximizer is a great alternative to an EDC backpack. Personally, I hate carrying around a backpack when I don’t need to, and I usually find that when I have a backpack, I load it with things that I don’t really need. Using the Vanquest Husky EDC organizer means I only carry the essentials, things I actually need for day to day life, or a small emergency, just enough to get me by until I can get help, or get to my car EDC kit.
The EDC pouch is extremely versatile, meaning you can organize it whatever way you like, the elasticated straps and internal pouches offer many different organisational structures, you can put large items in the pouches, and smaller items, such as a flashlight, or multitool in the strapping to keep them secure.
The zip is a YKK, and from what I know, this is one of the top brands of zips on the market, meaning it should last a long time. There is nothing worse than a zip jamming, and then breaking when you are trying to unjam it. This has yet to happen with this EDC pouch.
Here is what I currently have in my EDC organizer. It has changed slightly since I did my last post on my EDC kit.
- OLight H2R Nova Headlamp
- OLight USB Charger
- Leatherman Wave Multitool
- 10ml Hand Sanitiser
- 10ml Anti Histamine
- eCig Oil
- Cotton buds
- 4 Plasters
- 4 Alcohol Wipes
- Anker Power Bank
- Anker Power Bank Charger
- iPhone USB Charger
- Medical Tape
- 2 Pain Killers
- Thermal Mylar Blanket
- 8 Cable Ties
- Nitrile Gloves
- Nutella Sachet
- £20 Note
- Paracord – around 10 feet
- Duct Tape – Around 6-8 feet
I find that this EDC pouch is big enough to hold all of these items neatly, and it isn’t overloaded or feel like it is going to burst open as soon as I unzip it, which I have found with many other packs.
What I Like
I like most of the features the Vanquest Husky EDC Organizer has to offer, which is why I think it is the best EDC pouch I have owned to date. It has plenty of space for you to put all the essentials, the elasticated storage straps on the inside are strong, and well laid out for the most part, and the 3 internal pouches it has to offer are great for storing larger items that will not fit in the front external pouch, or under the elasticated straps, such as a mylar blanket or poncho.
I also like the fact that this pack has MOLLEE webbing on the back, which would make it great for attaching to your backpack for a weekend of camping or hiking, and being that it is water resistant due to the teflon fabric coating, it will cope with rain showers, provided it’s not torrential rain.
I like that this pack has different sizes of elasticated straps, most EDC packs only have one size, making it hard or impossible to fit larger items in, and annoying when you have smaller items tucked away, as they tend to drop out as soon as you open the pack. Vanquest have this covered by having a variety of different sizes of straps. If you watch my video review of the EDC pouch, you will get the measurements of these straps .I actually had a OLight R50 Pro Seeker stashed in it for a while under the middle elasticated strap, and it still closed up without any issues.
What I Don’t Like
There is nothing about this EDC organizer that I can say I don’t like, which is why I am calling it the best EDC pouch out there, but there are a few points on which I think Vanquest could improve upon, for example, when I have the pack loaded, and closed, it can look a little uneven, this is down to the way I pack it, but, it kind of annoys me, not really a fault of Vanquest though. The next issue I have, which Vanquest could address is the elasticated straps. When I have the internal pouches loaded, the straps become a little tighter making it a bit harder to get gear slotted in. Again, this is not a big problem, and doesn’t hinder the use of the pack, but it is something that could be worked on in the future.
