Officially we are calling our new product the CFSE, which stands for Cooking gear, Food/Forage, Shelter/Survival and the "E" is for Everything else you can think of, but I decide to go with the "Burrito" as a nickname because of all the tasty items you can store, organize and carry with this bad boy during your outdoor adventures. The CFSE is coming in at 12.5 liters of storage and that does not include the outer pocket, lid expansion or inclusion of whatever additional pouches, bedroll or tarp you mount to the outside.
The CFSE has two MOLLE straps so you can mount it to the outside of your ruck/pack for easy access and organization. There is a large front pocket (just slightly shorter than the main pocket on our G-2 Gear Roll) for quicker access to other items and accessories that you don't want to store in the main compartment. The "lid" of the Burrito is secured in place with webbing that acts like a compression sack so you can expand the lid for larger items, yet still keep them secured in the main compartment. The lid can also store a standard 8" fry pan, thereby providing even more storage capacity. Additionally, there are four rows of webbing along the outer surface of the C.F.S.E. so you can attach additional pouches, tarps or bedroll to the outside, further expanding your carrying capacity.
Here are some examples of the type/size of items we have shoved into the CFSE so far and some examples of how it can be used: 18 and 11 L Mors Pots, 16cm Zebra pot, Kelly Kettle with camp plates, the full Crusader canteen and cook kit, Snow Peak Trek combo, 8" camp fry pan, more food than you know what to do with for a weekend trip, a unicorn, complete shelter kits consisting of tarps and rain fly, a 32 degree sleeping bag... see where this is going?! Use your CFSE as a "bear bag" for food storage and string up in a tree near your campsite. Or, empty the contents when you set up camp and then use your Burrito as a foraging bag to collect tinder, sticks, edibles, or stuff full of leaves to use as a camp pillow. Attach your bedroll/tarp over the top and sides of the CFSE, mount that to a Y-Harness and now you have a minimalist, essentials only load out.

As such, we use genuine Cordura Brand 500dn nylon; Velcro brand hook and loop; ITW Nexus plastics, DOT Fasteners and Mil-Spec webbing, binding tape and threads. All of these materials are designed to resist abrasion, wear and rot in order to provide a lifetime of service. Hand-Crafted, High-Quality, Heirloom gear as unique as your fingerprint. Period.

I know, I know, I know... They call it the behemoth and they say it holds a lot. Well I think it holds more than that. Looks are deceiving but I could use this as a day pack if I had to. Holds a ton of gear and leaves me to load my backpack easily. Highly recommended. Did I mention the build quality is amazing??
I've had this thing for a couple of weeks. I've taken it to work, hiked around the high desert of the Davis Mountains, walked around my backyard in the Texas Hill Country, and just generally grabbed it any time I stepped outside. In that time, I have found so many uses for this piece of kit, it makes me smile thinking about it. I initially threw a water bottle and a jacket in it on a shakedown hike: swallowed that without a blink. I later used it on a dayhike, carrying water and a few snacks for the family. No problems there. Today, it did duty again as a water bottle holder (full size Nalgene and a collapsible dog bowl) and trash bag (sorry, Mark!). In short, I haven't used it as a cook kit carrier yet, but have found so many other uses for it. It's essentially one big dump pouch, one big, well-made, dump pouch. It's carried pistols and ammo, maps, jackets, trail food, water, ifak's, wallets, books...man, just get one. I've thoroughly enjoyed using it.
