GSARGear Review: Kinston Utility Pouch

I recently received this Kinston Folding Utility Pouch, and took it to a Field Training Exercise, and was extremely pleased with its performance. It is about 6″x8″, and stows perfectly in a BDU cargo pocket, so you could use it as a pocket organizer. I had it mounted on the side of my Load Bearing Vest, and it’s extremely easy to get things in and out of. It has a pretty low profile, and can expand out for extra carrying capacity. It has one zipper pocket on the front, the front flap then opens to reveal two more zipper pockets, with an ID/Small items pocket in the larger one. It also has two d-rings and two straps on the back for attaching it to your gear.

It’s quite roomy inside, as you can see here. I was using it as an admin pouch, for maps, notepads, a flashlight, the gps and things like that. It’s completely waterproof, I soaked it in a bucket of water and the contents were completely dry.

All in all, a very nice, durable Utility Pouch

Cons: Can’t really think of any, it’s a high quality, simple piece of equipment, no real flaws.


  • Nice size, holds just about everything I need.
  • Waterproof
  • MOLLE Compatible
  • Good design, doesn’t hang loosely and flop around like some ones I’ve tried.

    That looks pretty cool, how much was it?

    I got a velcro-medical panel, is there hook-velcro in there?

    Ferrar: It runs you about $10-$15, depending on where you get it.

    CadetWilliams: Nope, but you can add some, if modding is your thing.
