WHAT IS AN ADMIN POUCH?

An Admin Pouch is a small transporter of Everyday Carry items which you need on the daily. It is a great organization tool for finding your gear fast and keeping it safe from the damage it would receive banging around inside your bag. A small Admin Pouch contains straps and MOLLE webbing to either carry on its own or to easily attach to bigger items, like a tactical backpack or vest.


Building the best Admin Pouch is an art: it requires the inclusion of items that you use on the daily and the ones you can’t be without for convenience’s sake. While the Admin Pouch may contain some medical items, or may be used as an IFAK, its primary function is everyday utility. The slim Admin pouch allows you to always have the items you need.

WHAT TO PUT IN AN ADMIN POUCH?

The best Admin Pouch, not unlike the Bug Out Bag or Range Bag, should be individual to its owner. The needs of every person is different, depending on their routine, environment, circumstance, and experience. Here are some examples of supplies you might find in your Admin Pouch:

Map of the local area
Multitool
Pocket knife
Tape
Flashlight
Mirror
Lighter
Bit extender
Rope or wire
Protractor
Paperclip
GPS
Sharpie
Space pen
Rite in Rain notebook
Bug spray
Wet wipes
Toothpaste and toothbrush
Earplugs
Advil
QuikClot
Trauma bandage
Tweezers
Phone
Phone charger
Power bank
Earphones
USB
Briefing cards or info cards
Wallet
Credit Card
Spare cash
Spare keys
Spare batteries

HOW TO ATTACH MOLLE ADMIN POUCH TO BAG?

To attach a MOLLE Admin Pouch to a tactical bag, simply follow these steps:

  1. Place the end with the fastener through the first of the MOLLE straps where you want the items attached.
  2. Slide one end of the accessory back through the first insertion loop found on the attachment itself.
  3. Move the end of the accessory through the next MOLLE strap then back through the loop on the accessory.
  4. Repeat until the end of the MOLLE attachment strap on the Admin Pouch is reached, then close the fastening. If there are multiple straps, alternate their weaving for an even finish.

7 TIPS FOR HOW TO USE THE ADMIN POUCH?

  1. Situate the small Admin Pouch for easy accessibility, either directly on your chest, mounted to your armour or vest, outside of your bag on MOLLE straps, or inside of your bag.
  2. Keep duplicates of emergency medical supplies (just in case).
  3. Pack everyday carry backup so that you are never caught in a sticky situation without the supplies you need.
  4. The greatest benefit of the slim Admin Pouch is its small size and versatility for travel: it can easily be transported on your person or moved between bags, to always keep the essentials with you.
  5. Pair the MOLLE Admin Pouch with an IFAK to increase the amount of space available for other gear. Both will fit on the MOLLE webbing of your backpack.

6. The best Admin Pouch can be configured based on your needs, which is especially useful for various travel and more.

7. Keep your pouch streamline and organized: take out the gear that you do not need, and buy quality gear over quantity. Do not overpack your pouch and, instead, favour the visibility of your items.

4 ALTERNATIVE USES OF THE ADMIN POUCH

A small Admin Pouch can have a variety of other uses beyond Everyday Carry, depending on the needs of the user. For example, the pouch can be used as a:

  1. Dopp kit (toiletry bag)
  2. Tech cord organizer
  3. Passport wallet
  4. Seatback first aid kit

The Admin Pouch is perfect for anyone who loves versatility and to keep their gear portable, organized, and in pristine condition.
