Finally found a pouch for my Iphone 6S+! The One Tigris EDC pouch does a great job of holding my phone plus other goodies when I am out in the woods or even in town. Currently I am using it for camera batteries, a notebook, pen, SD card wallet, etc.

Check out the pics. Quality is pretty nice. I was surprised.

Two zipper pockets

Molle on the back and a included carabiner

What do I need?
A question that gets asked allot from folks who want to get outside and start camping or bushcrafting. The answer is not an easy one. In fact it can be very complex, but there is some basic equipment that would make getting outside a little more fun and safe and by adding more equipment can become the basis for your overnight kit. 

Water bottle (A stainless 32 oz -40 oz single wall bottle) - you will be able to boil water in this when it gets cold or do any winter camping
Kleen Kanteen 40oz

Metal cup - drink coffee, boil water, cook in it. Best if it can slip over your water bottle
GSI nesting cup

Spoon/spork - something to eat with
Light My Fire Spork

Multi-tool or camper pocket knife - a toolbox for the outdoors
Victorinox Farmer

Fixed blade knife (3-4” blade) - for wood processing and camp chores

Butane lighter 

Fire steel - not a necessity but fun to learn and a skill to master early

Paracord or bank line - multiple uses (50 ft minimum)

Large bandanna - multiple uses

Boots - good sturdy boots 

Work gloves (leather) - protect your hands when working in the outdoors

Grabber blanket - multiple uses, can be a tarp or used to sit on the ground, regulate body temperature during emergency

First aid kit - something basic can be assembled from home items (gauze, bandaids, tape, meds, neosporin)
