External pockets are my thing. Without this lil baby, I tend to lose my shit.
Now some people just don't understand the simplicity of the Ass Satchel.
I love it and
wanna know your take on external ass-pockets. :)

For a while I was wearing these ammo pouches I bought at an army surplus store but they were pretty heavy so they kept pulling my belt down. :oops: I'm still looking for a better solution.

Those are sick af :D
I carry many belt pouches which can be attached to my pack when not in use buy with the belt issue, just have an extra belt. It Will rest on your hood and the pants belt will keep them trousers up :)
I often have that problem with my kratom pouch but because of the metal, my scale, and 2oz, it has weight.
I use a Darth hiVader car seat belt.

I got this gas mask bag for $3 surplus, and I use it for papers and notebooks you need easy access to. It straps sideways around your thigh and fits perfectly my map, moleskine, composition book, phrasebook, and camera. Doesn't pull your pants down, and doesn't look too tacticool.
Google 'drop leg pouch' for more examples.

I've thought about it for a while now but I haven't because I know my friends would totally rip on me for it, maybe if I can get a really cool looking one...

Don't know anything about fashion but I've found them useful. Had one for years. Several types. Belt pouches, drop pouches, canteen rigs, armybsurplus, and even a -what I call- a leg holster. Really miss that one.

Definitely try making one your self! Not only will it be suited to your daily needs, It'll have a lot of value to you. :D

They're selling them for like $100 in some stores.. it's unreal. Yours is dope though, I dig it.

Finnish gas mask bag! I had one but gifted it to my dad. Right now I use a Serbian "rucksack," which is about the same size but comes with two straps that are detachable. You can rig it up like a normal backpack or as a satchel. I love it.

In one of the newer Star wars movies one to the characters uses one I saw. :p

I too have a gas mask bag that is versatile enough to carry a summer weight sleeping bag. I have also attached lightweight military butt packs to military/yuppie packs to do the same thing. I use a fanny pack on tour while working as a merchguy/roadie but that is to carry cash. I think it is redundant for me since my pack is everything. What ever super secret,valuable contents could also fit in pants/shorts/jacket pockets or the front pouch/pocket of your pack. I like to be as streamlined as possible while carrying what I need. I have not found a need or desire yet.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
