The Best Tech Organizers & Pouches For EDC

Best Tech Organizers 00 Hero

Technology in various configurations has been increasingly creeping into both our personal and professional lives. In fact, we’d be hard-pressed to say that we know anyone that doesn’t depend on some measure of it daily, even if that’s solely in the form of a smartphone. And most of us rely on even more than that — like earbuds or headphones, portable batteries, cables, hard drives, and more — which can make hauling it around as a part of our everyday carry somewhat of a hassle.

That hassle, however, can be mitigated quite well simply by utilizing a tech organizer — a bag or pouch crafted specifically to carry and keep in order all the technology and applicable accessories a person might need in a given day. Typically, these haulers are made to function as standalone pouches — meaning you can carry them alone — or they’re sized to fit into a larger backpack or duffel bag — serving to keep all your tech from floating around in a clustered heap. If this handy bit of carry sounds like something that might interest you, you’ll find the perfect one for your needs on the following list of the best tech organizers & pouches for everyday carry.

The Best Tech Organizers & Pouches

Tech Toting 101

What To Consider When Buying An EDC Tech Organizer

The everyday carry tech organizer segment is admittedly a fairly straight-forward product space, however, it’s still important to be privy to the half-dozen key areas one should focus on when shopping — the most important of which we’ve broken down below. 

Video Guide: The Best Tech Pouches

If you’re looking to see these organizers in action, be sure to check out our video guide to the best tech pouches.

Size: Though they tend to be similar in size to regular everyday carry gear organizers, tech EDC organizers and pouches can slightly vary in dimensions from model to model. We recommend starting by first reviewing the devices, cases, and other tech peripherals and accessories that you plan on carrying on a daily basis, as this should help to give you a decent sense of what sized pouch or organizer you’ll need. The size of the organizer or pouch will also determine where it can be stored within a larger carry solution like a backpack or messenger bag. 

Materials: As the element that comprises the majority of the product, the type of material used to craft a tech organizer or pouch’s shell plays an enormous role in how the item will perform — and its overall quality. Just like with most carry solutions, most tech organizers are crafted from rugged poly or nylon blends, though there are also models made form proprietary constructions such as Dyneema or CORDURA

Hardware & Trim: While primary construction is of the utmost importance, it’s still very much worth looking into the type of hardware used on a tech pouch or organizer. This includes reviewing elements such as a pouch’s buckles or zippers. What’s more, the type of trim used will also play a decently important role in a tech organizer’s overall quality — as well its build quality and craftsmanship. 

Organizational Amenities: Tech pouches don’t just merely offer storage space for cables, flashcards, and devices, but also organization, with most models boasting a slew of pockets, slips, and other organizational amenities to hep keep on your tech essentials neatly in order — and easily and readily accessible. 

Protection: One area in which tech organizers can also significantly vary is in the level of protection that they afford their contents. This is typically achieved the use of impact-absorbing foam and pads, though there are also models with exterior bumper systems. Even organizers that are devoid of padding will afford some level of drop protection — at least compared to the item being dropped on the ground by itself. 

Weatherproofing: On top of being able to protect your tech essentials from bumps and drops, you’ll also want to consider if you’ll need protection from the elements — a particularly crucial amenity for those living in regions that receive ample snow and rain. This is typically accomplished through the use of water-resistant or waterproof shell constructions — some of which are further fortified via special exterior coatings or treatments — as well as via waterproof zipper tracks or closures. 

Selection & Testing Process

How & Why We Got Hands-On With These Particular Tech Organizers

Best Tech Organizers And Pouches Tested 01

As an entity that prides itself on living and breathing all things EDC, HICONSUMPTION keeps close tabs on the tech and carry solution spaces, giving us a good idea of who the major players are in this segment. After a brief survey at the office in which we determined the typical tech items carried by your average worker, we set out making our selections based on the models that provided accommodation for all of our required tech essentials. Additionally, we also factored-in the shell material(s) used to craft each tech organizer and pouch, as well as secondary materials such as liners, hardware, and padding. Obviously, organizational amenities were also a key factor that was used to help hone in on our selections, as was weather resistance and impact protection. After making our selections, we then spent the following months putting each and every everyday carry tech organizer to the test in order to get a better sense of real-world performance as well as how well each model would presumably/seemingly stand the test of time.

Best Value Pick: If you’re after one of the most compact tech organizers on the market, you can’t go wrong with Chrome Industries’ Tech Accessory Pouch. Because it only measures a scant 5″ wide by 7.25″ high by 1.5″ deep, it couldn’t quite make it into our top five. However, because it comes from one of cycling’s preeminent baggage brands, we felt that it was deserving of an honorable mention. And besides, the Tech Pouch isn’t trying to be your primary point of carry. Rather, it’s intended to carry the bare necessities and nothing more.

Worthwhile EDC Tech Organizer & Pouch Picks

Cargo Works EDC Tech Kit V2

Typically speaking, most organizers are limited by their internal formats and are only able to hold as much as their capacity allows. Well, that’s not the case with the Cargo Works EDC Tech Kit. You see, while this bag has plenty of internal organization within its 1050D nylon exterior (which is exceedingly durable and water-resistant), it also boasts an external MOLLE grid — which means you can expand it through the addition of modular pouches. That means you can keep your batteries, cables, smartphone, etc. on the inside and, on the outside, you can attach a multi-tool, a folding knife in a sheath, and whatever else you might need at a moment’s notice.
