Grid-It: Knoll your everyday carry
Cocoon's Grid-It organizers are flat, rigid boards criss-crossed with tough, strong elastic straps, which let you lay out every small and useful thing you own in a pleasing, knollish layout. Cory Doctorow's carried one for a month now, and can't imagine how he ever lived without it.
The elastics are strong and stuff doesn't fall out if your pass it through a couple-three loops. The boards are light, too: from 0.4lbs for the smallest to 1.06lbs for the biggest. There are also a lot of weird sizes that the manufacturer advertises but that can't be readily had in stores. I'm interested in the suitcase-sized 11"x15" suitcase-sized one -- I'm going to order a couple for my next book-tour and try using one as a toilet-case -- I love the idea of hanging it up in a hotel bathroom and being able to see all your stuff at a glance.
Cocoon knows a good thing when they see it -- they've expanded into car sun-visor organizers and tablet cases, backpacks lined with grids, too.
