Because sometimes you just wish the zipper was on the front and not the top. Just don’t let your wives or daughters get their hands on this pouch. They’re liable to fill it with eyeliner, nail polish, mascara, and whatever else women need to keep on their person at all times. (Seriously, why do they need all that stuff all the time? No one will 'need to look pretty' during the impending zombie apocalypse! With that warning out of the way, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this pouch, shall we? This pouch has two strips of Velcro on the back which will conveniently allow you to attach it to our other, bigger bags. It's a great way to be organized and quickly lay hands on small items. Because there is nothing more irritating than having to dig through a Grand Canyon-sized bag to find a small item. The front is made of string-reinforced clear vinyl, so you can quickly identify and retrieve whatever small whimdiddly your heart desires at the moment.
