The Alchemy Bag has 104 slots, while the Ender Pouch only has 27.
Their functions are the same, with the exception that the Alchemy Bag is player specific, while the Ender Pouch is server-specific and has more possible color codes than the Alchemy Bag. Alchemy Bags also have the ability to allow certain EE items to work when placed in them, unlike when these items are placed in an Ender Pouch.
Ender Pouch's Solution for Infinite Inventory:
The Ender Pouch coupled with an Ender Chest and Buildcraft Pipes can be used to make a player's inventory infinite. When you place items in an Ender Pouch, the items are also placed in the linked Ender Chest. By connecting a pipe system to the linked ender chest that will pump items from said ender chest to a different chest, will make the ender pouch never fill up, because every item the pipe system pumps out of the linked ender chest disapears from the ender pouch.
This infinite inventory solution is useful if you are mass mining blocks--ore, stone, dirt, sand, etc.--and don't care whether or not you keep them in your inventory.
