The EDC Tool Roll is a feature on Jerking the Trigger in which we profile various every day carry worthy tools. The tools shown aren’t multi-tools but rather real tools, that by virtue of their compact size, light weight, usefulness, or unique functionality, can find a place in any range kit, emergency kit, or every day carry bag.
Feel free to comment on the tools that you carry so we can all learn! The discussion on these posts has been very valuable so far.
As much as I prefer the Triple 7 Gear line of pocket organizers, their availability has been a intermittent and several of you have asked for alternatives. Maxpedition seemed like the easy choice with their long history of EDC organizers and it turns out that they offer one of the only other truly pocketable pocket organizers on the market… which is kind of ironic. I don’t know who has pockets large enough to fit some of the so-called “pocket” organizers out there but it isn’t me.
The Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer is the smallest (5.5″ x 3.5″ x 1″) in their extensive line of pocket organizers and it is completely sufficient for me. The pouch has a clamshell design that is closed with a perimeter zipper. The front exterior of the pouch has a mesh slip pocket and the rear has a small grab handle. The interior of the pouch has 5 elastic loops, a slip pocket on each side, and a small loop for attaching a lanyard.
The quality is typical Maxpedition so it should last a long time. I prefer this organizer to others in their line due to its small size and because it isn’t festooned with belt loops and PALS webbing that I will never use. It’s the simplest and most compact they offer, which is exactly why I prefer it.
Where to Buy: Maxpedition products are available all over the place. If you local gun store carries them, buy there. They can probably use the business these day! If not, Amazon is a good stand by: Maxpedition Micro Pocket Organizer on Amazon
Alternatives: My favorite pocket organizer is the Triple 7 Gear Micro Kit which is great, made in the USA gear, if you can catch them in stock. Maxpedition also makes the Mini Pocket Organizer and EDC Pocket Organizer that might still fit in some pockets. They are larger than the Micro but offer more organization features.
If you have an organizer, tool roll, or other tool that you can recommend, tell us about it below. The comments have been a valuable source of information in this series.

Thanks for posting this, I’ve been looking for an alternative to Triple 7 until they’re back in stock
