Ergodyne Arsenal 5527 Tool Pouch Review

Ergodyne has recently released some new tool pouches and I wanted to try out their new snap closure design. If you tend to carry around things that aren’t tied down and want to make sure it stays where they should, than say hello to the Ergodyne Arsenal 5527 Tool Pouch!



  • Snap closure mechanism works great and the handles makes it easy to pull it open and shut
  • Very solid construction and defined flat bottom
  • Large buckled belt loop can be to your belt without taking things apart
  • Has some external external tool sheaths for longer pry-bar type tools
  • Orange on the inside seems to make finding other things easier
  • There are d-rings on the inside which allows some tethers to stay tucked away
  • You can attach other tool belt pouches to the side


  • Because the belt loop attaches to the bottom of the pouch, and a little lack of vertical structure, the pouch can fold over somewhat on itself
  • The orange fabric feels thin compared to the grey fabric, they seem mismatched
  • The inside could use more variety in tool organization, it seems like one black band around the inside that has only wider gaps for bigger tools; plus the band feels a little to high in the pouch. Would like more full-length, sheath-like options inside.
  • Would have liked a bigger inside pocket for a wallet or phone
  • The external d-rings, while attractive, seem less functional than a standard d-ring. There are two little gaps around the main one, which aren’t big enough for a hook but sure can catch one a bit; perhaps if these gaps were just filled in that’d help
  • Overall, the pouch could stand to be an inch or two taller, I really wish my spray paint can could fit in it


The current price for the light is about $50 USD and if you appreciated my review and would like to support me, feel free to check out this product on amazon using my affiliate link (does not cost you more, amazon gives me very small % of their profit):
