FTIM™ (Fast-Totally-Integrated Maximizer™) is a series of evolved organizers that offer lightning-fast pull-down access, and gear-taming organization. It is a hybrid of our signature PPM/EDCM Maximizer™ organizers, and the popular FATPack medical pouches.

With Maximizer staggered/offset elastic loops, high-viz ripstop pockets, and a fold-down tool roll flap, every slot/pocket in the FTIM is designed to secure your gear. A built-in "shelf" bottom further retains items stored vertically, and prevents them from slipping through. With one instinctive pull, the FTIM's contents are at the ready.

FTIM-HUSKY is the larger of the FTIM series: 8.5" (H) x 6.5" (W) x 2.5" (D). If you need a larger fold-out organizer to stow your EDC items, the FTIM-HUSKY is your pouch.

Two large slip pockets, four paracord loops, plus 27 vertical and horizontal elastic loops, the FTIM-HUSKY guarantees every one of your EDC items will find a home.

Sturdy grab handle with user-selectable FASTab system can quickly unzip the #8 YKK lockable zippers. Loop ID panel, exterior slip pocket, and MOLLE/PALS side panels allow expansion of gear carried. Constructed of 1,000-D CORDURA® with TEFLON® by DuPont® to ensure maximum durability!

You can attach the pouch onto any MOLLE/PALS surface with MOLLE Sticks (#99MS5X4*); or convert it to a hook-and-loop attachment using the MOHL-Air adapter panel (#017700*); or use our 1" UNIVERSAL STRAP (#012001*) to carry it around your shoulder. *Optional accessories.

 

FAQ: What is a “Maximizer™”, and how is it better than the other EDC organizers I have? 

Answer: VANQUEST® Maximizer™ is a series of improved organizers that use our proprietary Maximizer™ webbing to “maximize” the use of space. The Maximizer™ webbing uses staggered/offset elastic loop channels, and is 15.5% more efficient in saving space compared to traditional elastic loops with shared-stitching.

In nature, geometry of a honeycomb achieves the maximum use of space with minimal use of material and weight. In other words, VANQUEST® Maximizer’s staggered / offset elastic loops are like those hexagon units in a honeycomb (See diagram):

Given the objects stored all have the same diameter (e.g. a Sharpie, or a flashlight), each repeating hexagon unit is 15.5% smaller than traditional elastic loop arrangement (square), and that’s how we “MAXIMIZE” the use of space.

    Excellent quality on arrival

    Posted by Dan on 31st Oct 2017

    I have not had a chance to really use this pack, other than putting my camping gear in it and keeping it in my pack for next year. However, the concept is excellent for organizing smaller camping gear like flashlights, small knives, extra batteries, fire stuff and survival items. I like the fast-opening system similar to the FAT packs. One criticism I would have is that when you have the tab connected to the outside to open it fast, there is a small space at the top, so it is possible for water to get into pack. It is for this reason and the fact that I haven't had a chance to really test the durability that I give it 4 stars instead of 5. Otherwise, great product by Vanquest once again.

    Acceptable for the discounted price

    Posted by Finn Stephens on 25th Oct 2017

    I was surprised to see the tag, "Made in Taiwan". Zippers are very close to binding making it difficult to open and close. I guess my expectations were at a level equal to the RackIt 36 rifle bag which is EXTREMELY well made. Overall the FTIM Hustky is average in construction but materials are good quality.

    Great pouch for whatever you want

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Sep 2017

    Hybrid pouch between fatpak and edcm. Using my husky as a fire kit. Plenty of room for gear, fat wood, fire starters. Fits in my pack nicely or could mills it. Great job Vanquest! A little tough to close at the top but can use quick open just as easy.

    Quality Material but design makes closing near impossible

    Posted by Ron on 2nd Sep 2017

    I bought this on sale. The materials and design were why. However, it is a chore (mild version of what I would like to write) zipping the case closed. The reverse design on the zippers make closing it coach on the corners near the top. To close you need to zip/unzip and push the interio materials inward to be able to zip the bag closed or open. I am hoping that using the bag will relieve this issue but I think it is a design flaw that will not correct itself.

    Love it!!

    Posted by Shawn H on 10th Jul 2017

    I purchased the FTIM pack to organize small items that I carry with me everyday. I carry a flashlight, Leatherman with extra driver bits, misc pocketknives, 2 pair of nitrile gloves, leather strop, headlamp, extra batteries, plastic fork/spoon and a few other items and the pack is not near full!!!

    I am very happy with the FITM pack!!! It rides in my Envoy 3.0 everyday along side my 5x8 Fat Pack.

    Excellent!

    AWESOME!!

    Posted by Teddy on 22nd Feb 2017

    Hello I just recently purchased the FTIM-husky and a few other items and let me start off by saying they are all awesome pouches. I'm new to EDC and started watching reviews from PREPAREDMIND101, LearningToBePrepared, TheUrbanPrepper, and EverydayTacticalVids these are the main ones I watch but there are many more I do watch just to many to name. I didn't realize how much stuff I carry with me in a day and the FTIM help put it all into one location so I don't have to look for it.

    The quality of the FTIM is phenomenal form the 1000-D Cordura and YKK zipper to the stitching and design of the pouch can't be beat. If your looking for away to organize your edc or hiking etc. I highly recommend the FTIM.

    Thank you Vanquest team for all the awesome products that you make.

    Perfect partner for the Ibex-30

    Posted by Bob on 5th Feb 2017

    As with all Vanquest gear this pouch is superbly made and thoughtfully designed. I have it attached to the side of my Ibex - it works really well for small to medium EDC items.

    Tough and spacious

    Posted by Kirk on 31st Jan 2017

    This thing can hold nearly everything I throw at it. I have attached it to the outside of my Skitch using Molle Sticks, though it can also fit inside the Skitch. As with all Vanquest gear, this thing is quality!
