Electronics panel for EDC bag
I was looking for a rigid, modular solution for organizing the electronics in my EDC bag when I stumbled upon Grey Man Tactical. Just to give some context on what the problem is, I tend to carry multiple electronic items with me when I go out for day trips - e.g., battery pack for my phone, small Li batteries, wireless earbuds etc. At the end of the day, I would get tired of unpacking each item individually to recharge them so I decided I needed a system in which I can charge all items in a single go. This was how I ended up choosing Grey Man Tactical. In relation to other competing bag insert panels manufacturers, one aspect in which Grey Man Tactical stands out is the range of dimensions that the inserts come in, so the panels are really tailored to my gear. As seen in the photos, the panel and its contents fit snugly in my compact Orbit M100 sling bag. Although the panel itself is already a fantastic design, I adhered velcro loop strips to the entire front panel - this was the primary method in which items will be attached to the insert panel. For heavier items or items that needs to be connected rigidly to the panel (e.g., the heavy battery, or phone charging dock), I have further secured it using velcro hook/loop straps that ties around the molle openings in the panel. In terms of cable management, the panel's molle opening and velcro straps allowed me to organize the cable clutter extremely easily - this is all routed to the back of the panel and tied down. All electronics in the panel are connected to a USB Hub, from which I could plug into a wall socket to recharge everything without even unpacking anything, which has made my life much easier. To sum up, the panel has exceeded my expectations and using it has been nothing but a pleasure. I'll be looking to buy more in different dimensions as I look to outfit my other backpacks.
