  1. Hi there,

    I am looking for a kit recommendation and wonder if any of you guys can help. I need a pouch to act as a personal organiser for travelling and work.

    It should be no larger than, say, a copy of FHM, but thick enough to take a reasonable amount of paper work and maps, perhaps with some compartments for pens and smaller documents.

    It should be robust enough to prevent things from getting crushed or mangled in a bergen and perhaps water-restistant too. It should have a secure fastener to stop stuff coming out.

    I have tried a air marker panel bag, but found it to be too floppy and without a secure fastening.

    Does the kit I am looking for exist somewhere, or is it just a product of my imagination?

  2. Blackhorse does a junior commander type folder but it aint cheap
    document case in a waterproof bag sounds best option .

    Hmmm, I just gave away what you want.

    An A4 leather presentation folder with zip on 3 sidse.


    If you can't get one, try getting a THIN laptop bag.

    Lap tops come very small these days and can be perfect document holders.
  4. I just use a couple of Nirex folders for my docs and maps. I think the 40 sleeve A4 one costs about £8.00
  5. there is a laptop bag called "the gimp" in neoprene that comes with dividers and might suit your needs
  6. Yeah, try googling that. I bet the one you want is 150,000,000 of the results. :lol:

    I used a 51mm mortar bomb bag with the pockety bits cut out to make one big compartment. Not waterproof, though, but a plakky bag inside took care of that side.
