ModuLoader Pocket Shield

The gear we EDC is constantly upgraded and evolved but the pockets we carry them in haven’t changed in a century, until now…

Imagine reaching into your pocket and having the same item in the same spot every time. Multiple items placed exactly where it’s the most accessible. No more fumbling or cluttering of gear in your pockets.

The ModuLoader Pocket Shield($) makes it possible. Technical, efficient, custom, tactical and comfortable pocket usage maximizing space and concealability.

Pockets are merely small container bags that are attached to pants. The things we put in there drop to the bottom and pile up on top of another. The more we put in them, the more distorted and bulgy the pockets get. This creates discomfort, hindered maneuverability and worse, difficult / inefficient access.

Now there’s a better way.

The Pocket Shield can make most pockets into an organizational and everyday carry powerhouse.

The Pocket Shield is shaped to ride comfortably in the front pocket of most pants, and provides consistent orientation within the pocket to facilitate quick-access and deployment…

Beyond being able to fit more items in your pocket comfortably, it secures them in whatever position you want for quick access as well as visually concealing the contents by negating “pocket bulge”.

The Pocket Shield is dynamically ergonomic, forming to the user’s body and adjusting to conform to different positions and movements.

Although originally designed for pants, it can also be implemented to jacket pockets and bags for internal gear management just as effectively.

When I first opened the package, my first impression was disappointment as all I saw was a thin piece of black plastic that cost me $25. After playing around with it for hours experimenting with all the possibilities then using it in the real world, the ModuLoader Pocket Shield became an indispensable part of my EDC.

This advancement in pocket function was conceived by Chris Fry, owner of MDTS Training as a way to conveniently carry and conceal firearms, knives and other tools in the front pocket of pants.

Because of this intended tactical application, it can be just as useful for everyday life as I use it for my vagabonding lifestyle of world travel.
