1. Do you use an organizer?
2. What kind?
3. What is the best feature?
4. What would you like to see?
5. Do you think Tom could do a better one, with the right input?
The one thing I don't care for are the open slots for credit cards, I feel unsave with them. I like the mesh zipper pockets.
Hi there, @gandr1212! Welcome!
I use a variety of travel organizers, and I swap out based on the task at hand. Right now I'm at a training class, so my primary "organizer" is a Co-Pilot that's serving as my travel purse. The pockets in the Co-Pilot were great for this trip; I felt like I had everything at hand.
I'm with you on card slots. I don't like them, either. I feel a lot safer if my cards and ID are safely behind a zipper.
What are you using right now, and does it work or not work for you?
I use a Large Clear Pouch for paper reservations, brochures and paper related souvenirs, a Passport Pouch and a Medium Pouch for everything else.
One great addition has been the Field Journal Notebook, it's Junior dimensions: 9.8" x 7.9" x 2.2" / 250 x 200 x 55 mm fits 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" paper size (that's exactly half of an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet) make for a great Journal de Voyage: traveling journal, birding, wildlife viewing, botany, astronomy journal and a great stetch and watercolor book/easel.

I use a large clear organizer pouch for all those papers one seems to end up with during travel - copies of reservations, boarding passes, stamps (for the postcards I never send...), pages from guidebooks. Also, my Co-Pilot, possibly one of the best bags I have ever traveled with!
