I purchased this pouch specifically for use on a trip to detect in England. I have found that the English fields produce a lot of dust in your pouch, and the mesh bottom of this item seemed to be a good solution. I also liked the configuration of the pouch. I found it to be a very functional pouch with handy slots and compartments. I enjoyed using it...at least through the first three days of the trip. However, on day four, the poor construction of the pouch manifested itself. By the end of the fourth day, the belt loop had pulled away from the pouch and it was barely hanging on. This required an emergency field fix, which held up for the rest of the 12 days of detecting. However, because of the demonstrated poor durability of the pouch, I am unable to give it more than as middle of the road rating.
