Other Bags and PouchesSetWear Small AC Pouch
Not on the outside. There are four vertical pockets on the inside front, one wide vertical pocket on the inside back (belt side), one large pocket on each inside end, and one big storage area in the middle. There is also a large pocket on each end, outside. Just for example, I have two dry-erase markers in the outside pocket on one end, a Gerber multi-tool in the inside pocket on the same end, a multi-blade shorty screwdriver in the inside pocket on the other end. The four inside front pockets hold a lens pen, an adjustable wrench, and 4 different Sharpies, The back pocket holds a reporter's pad and two pens. The big space in the middle holds a bottle of lens cleaner, several clean microfiber cloths in plastic bags, lens paper, and a squeeze bulb blower. Sometimes, I also clip my gloves onto the end ring, and sometimes I carry extra velcro inside if I'm running my Porta-Jib. Love the bag, looks good, works good...tough as steel. When you close the flap it is all closed up, except the outside pockets on the ends. I can get to my dry-erase without opening the bag when marking up a slate quickly. -By Jeffrey E.

I love this guy. As a Production Assistant, I struggled with carrying all of the things I need with me. I like to read during downtime so carrying my kindle in this was a must. Also, given we work 14+ hours a day on any given production, our phones tend to die. This thing holds all my pens, call sheets, kindle, portable phone charger (Mophie/Kanger), necessary cords, lip balm, flashlight, and whatever else I need. Plus theres nifty compartments on the inside if you're one of those Monica Geller types who needs to organize your pouch like I do. -EylseCinebag AC Pouch CB03
"I use this pouch for grip and electric work. It's big enough to carry my wire cutters, a pair of scissors, 6 in 1 screwdriver, c wrench, hex keys, pocket knife, speed wrench, box wrench, socket tester, pens, sharpies, a lighter, a welder's glass, and the pocket on the side holds a travel size bottle of sunscreen or bug spray. There's a D ring on the side I clip my gloves to
I wouldn't ever want to carry all the tools I own on my belt, but it holds all my essentials for big(ger) shows. It's made of a durable material and has held up well in a variety of stages and locations through out LA. I also dig the Velcro top flap because it ensures my tools won't accidentally fall out and hurt anyone if I'm on a ladder or working up in the perms on a soundstage. I keep my Leatherman, Sure Fire, tape roll/cube tap lanyard, and tape measure separately on my belt to distribute weight" - William S. Koopmann
"This pouch helps you consolidate any collection of previous odd pouches and pant pockets you've had into one go-to pouch. Granted, depending on the shoot, you might want to add additional pouches for canned air, a walkie, or big brick batteries (an Anton Bauer is going to have a tight fit), but you'll be able to fit most of your staples in here. It's not going to be able to store a full AC kit, but a good ditty bag will help with that.
This pouch is durable and feels well balanced on the belt, even making a comfy arm rest sometimes! The configuration is what you make it, but I like having the easy access to my maglite mini on the side pocket. The inside flap pocket with additional velcro is a nice place for empty media cards to have on standby.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the velcro is a thing. It's a good thing, in that your stuff isn't going to fall out so easily. But it's also a noisy thing, so it might need some DIY engineering based on how much of a problem it becomes. Unless, of course, you work exclusively on MOS shoots, you lucky duck you.
Overall, you'll need to find the best configuration of what works best for you and your type of work. For the price, it's great for having your go-to tools within reach." -Grace Merchant
"The updates to the bag are logical and elegant. It's aesthetically pleasing and functionally practical. I went to many stores in burbank and hollywood, including studio depot, castex, other grip and camera houses and I'm really glad I ordered it online. Not only did i get a good price, but I'm happy I went with Cinebags. They just need to update their graphic art on the retail label :)" -daniel batalles
" I use it to store my multitool, screw drivers, pens, flash light and light meter on set. There is a pocket for a cell phone. It might be too small for the scanner, if it's one of those big scanners. They also have the bigger pouch that might work. "
