I really like this organizer. I use the Size 2 and already can think of another use for a size 1. Its great with out having TOO many pockets and isnt overkill. Super Light. I did cut the zipper pulls off and added paracord to quiet down the jungle jungle of the zipper pulls. Id order again and already think I will get the size 1.

Great organizer, can hold a lot!
I bought these as a gift for the men in my wedding, they all loved them... I had to buy myself one as well. It's hard to find good travel kits for men.

BC Organizer 2 - great ditty bag for small gear
I previously owned the BC Organizer 3 but sold it in a grab bag on ebay because it was too fussy for my taste with the dangling inner pocket and wasted (for backpacking) sleeves for credit cards and other paper materials. I ordered the BC Organizer 2 from Altrec, received it in a day as usual, and found the BCO2 was much more too my taste for use as a ditty bag for all my miscellaneous small gear - utensils, matches, headlamp, lighter, toilet paper, toothbrush, pen & paper, insect repellent, etc etc. There are tons of pockets and a place for everything - a lot more room than the BC Organizer 3 for a comparable weight. I was previously carring all my small gear and supplies in a cuben fiber zip pouch that weighed only 0.5 oz; the BC Organizer 2 weighs 3.9 oz and although I am a fanatic about cutting grams, I find the great organizational capability of the BCO2 to be well worth the extra weight. Plus, it fits perfectly in the top pocket of my pack. As typical for OR gear, the quality is impeccable.

Great for a pack - and a suitcase
OR calls it a "backcountry" organizer, but mine sees duty on long haul flights as the lightest & best organized travel dop kit I have yet found. The smallest size is more than adequate for a month and fits well in a carry-on. The level of detail is admirable - fully 5 zippered compartments (one is mesh & 4 1/2 of the 5 zippers are double-stitched), plus1 large &3 small unzippered interior fabric pockets, a tabbed elastic band to hold various bottles/containers, and a small nylon carrystrap(flush on the underside). The fabric is a reinforced ballistic nylon. It will not contain an explosion of magenta hair mousse, but it strikes the correct balance between moisture resistance and breathability to prevent unseemly toothbrush mildew. I also have the medium & large sizes which have greater capacity, more pockets/compartments and are equally welldesigned &made . All would work as travel organizers (no hair dryers, though - outlets not included).

I have used this and the #2 for years in many different applications. Great materials and they have really thought through the design. It works perfectly in a pack, briefcase or suitcase. Get it now.
