PD EDC looks to handle the overflow with a modular system that keeps all kinds of EDC gear neatly organized and ready to deploy. Its Vault 2.0 lineup works like a binder for everyday essentials.
As the name signifies, the Vault 2.0 isn't PD's first crack at an EDC organizer. The maker's original Vault was the subject of an Indiegogo crowdfunder in 2022. The idea was the same, and the design similar, but with the new 2.0 version PD expands a single bag into a multi-size series and tweaks the layout of the organizer sleeves inside.
Inspired by the pages of a book, each individual Vault 2.0 sleeve features integrated organizational solutions such as PALS loops lined up to hold various sizes of gear, from long flashlights to tiny tools and knives. Different panels have different configurations of vertically and/or horizontally oriented loops to better accommodate the near-limitless number of provisions one might carry. Other sleeves come loaded with alternative storage solutions, including mesh pockets, card holders, transparent map/document sleeves and more.
The sleeves are designed to work with respective carry cases that come in three sizes. The smallest 500-ml MiniLite case is a grab-and-go pouch that functions almost like a wallet with added gear space. It comes with two small, Velcro-secured sleeves and can carry items like money, cards, keys, and small knives and multitools. The MiniLite looks like the one Vault 2.0 everyday carry case that someone might actually carry every day.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the 13-L MaxHaul comes stocked with four sleeves for holding up to 60 different pieces of gear and expands to double those figures, offering a total 120-tool capacity. The handled bag measures 10 x 13.8 in (25 x 35 cm, length x width) and expands from 5.9 to 7.9 in (15 to 20 cm) in depth to increase capacity to 17.5 liters. The accompanying large sleeves include two upper holes for hanging up on a wall or workspace. Available add-on sleeves include a blank Velcro version upon which one can secure small or medium Vault 2.0 sleeves for added flexibility.
