    Large Organizer Pouches and stacks of paper

    I'm searching for a better way to contain manuscripts and partial manuscripts as I lug them back and forth from various critique groups. Does anyone happen to know about how many pages of 8.5 x 11 paper fits neatly in a LOP?

    @Sera You can fit in about a ream (500 sheets) of letter size paper into a large organizer pouch. I just tried this with the Cayenne large organizer pouch i received on Monday. I like to use the 500D Cordura pouches for papers, and the Cayenne pouch is 500D. This is the finer texture Cordura that is used for the inside lining of Cafe bags. Here's a post with a picture of 500D Cayenne Cordura from ex machina's former Imago in steel/steel (ballistic nylon)/cayenne. Wasabi is another great color that comes in 500D Cordura. You can also use the Dyneema pouches in large size.

    This is correct! It's surprising how much you can fit into a Large Organizer pouch!

    If you scroll up from the linked post on 500D Cordura, there's a picture of the large organizer pouch in 500D Cordura inside a Cocoa/Cocoa/Wasabi Imago. I use Levenger Briefcase folders to hold papers inside these pouches, but they stopped making these about 3 years ago -- mine are over 5-6 years old. See kcmg's post with links to poly folders at Staples for another alternative set of translucent, color-coded plastic folders to organize your papers. Also, read through the other posts in the thread on "How do you use your Large Organizer Pouch" that is the source thread for my earlier post's link to a picture of 500D Cayenne Cordura.

    A ream is more than enough. Thanks, all! I can't tell you how squee-ful it makes me to be given a reason to order more Tom Bihn!
