When it isn’t popping out and falling to the bottom underneath all your stuff, it’s catching on every other thing in there as I pull it out. See those pens hinged by their caps? How long until you have a capless sharpie tumbling in the bottom of your bag, permanently putting teal streaks on everything you own? 20 minutes, tops.
I have one. Used it for a month. Then went back to using use-specific pouches instead (one small one for cables, one slightly larger one for a dopp kit, another for tools). A million times easier to find things and guaranteed they won’t get lost.
