**MORE IMAGES TO COME... THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING**
2017 EDCM-HUGE 2.0 improvements: (1) easy access front slip pocket, (2) three position removable 6” (overall) double hook key chain tether.
EDCM-HUGE is the largest in the Everyday Carry Maximizer™ (EDCM) series, measuring at 8" (H) x 7" (W) x 2.5" (D). It features 24 of our “Maximizer” offset-stitched elastic channels, and 5 flat pockets to accommodate nearly every piece of your EDC gear. If you are looking that ONE portable “everything but the kitchen sink” organizer, the EDCM-HUGE is what you need.
Utilizing our signature "Maximizer" staggered/offset elastic loops, you get more use of the internal space than other pouches using elastic webbing with shared stitches.
There’s one large flat pocket on the left flap/cover panel and two horizontal flat pockets with a large zippered pocket on the right. A removable 6" double hook key chain tether can be placed on either side in any of the three 1” paracord loop positions. Total 24 elastic loop channels, including a 2.5"-wide elastic loop on the center spine.
EDCM-HUGE is perfect for building a fire, cooking, medical, tool, EDC or personal survival kit. With just enough room to load too much stuff into, every piece of your gear will find a home.
Pull handle and lockable #8 YKK zippers with circular paracord pulls for security and easy access. 1,000-D CORDURA® with TEFLON® by DuPont®, and MOLLE/PALS back panel further provide durability and modularity.
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 over your shoulder. *Optional accessories.*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.

Great improvement over my old EDCM!! Now the front pocket is easier to access and it looks nicer too.

This review is intended for the improvements and not the pouch. The pouch's quality is excellent as always and I would choose it over competition anytime.
The improvements didn't meet my expectation and, in my opinion, surely didn't warrant the "2.0" next to the pouch's name. Even though it is true the front pocket is little easier to open but still not user friendly if the pouch becomes more full. A better improvement would be to redesign the front pocket so it would have its own capacity regardless if the pouch was full or not. For the key chain hooks, these are extra hooks connected back to back to each other.
I think you are better off buying the old one and saving the price difference (around $11), before they run out of course.
