"Great quality
Great build
Absolutely no complaints OTHER than the price
Mags fit very snug and tight, so dont worry about losing them
If you are thinking of buying just do it.
by Lev M. on 02/08/2017
"Perfect for loaders M4/M16

"These mag holder are awesome, especially for the price, though they do require minor modification.
If you want a sum up here it is.
Pro's
Holds mags very snug (even when crawling)
AMAZING price point!
Love the camo options.
Light weight.
Easy to attach to molle (easier then a lot of soft shells)
Comparable to the HSGI taco's in design/hold, but 1/3rd the price
CON'S
Needs to be beveled (can do with a dremal+sander) for better mag replacements
Solid square design can knock the wind out of you when you dive (see full details below)
Now lets go through the full details.
1st off. They hold the mags very well. So well that I can crawl (with them between my chest and the ground) and they do not slide out. To me I require this because I do a lot of flanking, most of which is crawling. I've occasionally crawled more than two miles in a single game day.
2nd. They are very easy to pull mags from. This particular design if you pull it away from your chest (prying the slot open) it releases even easier.
3rd. They require some brief modification, to bevel the slot's opening. Think of a pistol going into the mag well. Not beveled, the mag has to go in perfectly or not at all, allowing no breathing room. If you buy a mag well bevel, it allows breathing room, easier to reload. IF you bevel the magwell which can easily be done with a dremal and small sanding disc (or even done with a hand file though it'll take longer) putting mags into this is 100x easier. The mags fit so perfectly it has to be beveled, or you will spend a lot of time attempting to get it in.
Now that I beveled the mag holsters, I can removed and replace mags in a matter of 1-3 seconds per switch. This allows me no need for a dump pouch. Personally I can't stand dump pouches. For many reasons. 1st, they look like crap. 2nd, they flap around causing noise. 3rd, when full your mags swing and spank you with every stride. 4th, when you play how I do (constantly jumping, diving, rolling, crawling, etc) you're body weight gets on every side at some point in the game, it's not fun to lay down on 6 mags shoved into your side/back. 5th, one less thing to carry. 6th, when full, dump pouches are known to allow things to come out (out of the guys that most often lose things, almost all use dump pouches, I have never lost anything on field).

I've tried many pouches. Simple velcro pouches (my least fav) HSGI taco pouches (just as good of pouches, though they are 3x as expensive) even these mag pouches that are dual mag but shove the next mag forward when you pull the other mag out. Also an awesome design, but they were about 40$ per dual mag pouch. I still enjoy these pouches the most, and the price point makes me love them that much more. Highly recommend to any M4 users. I hope to see these come out in a few more mag sizes (SMG mags, Sniper mags like SR25, Extended pistol mags, pistol mags, etc) Just hope they learn to bevel them for us.

"I have this attached to my condor battle belt.
I have had no problems or tears with my mag carriers, though the material holding these to the molle webbing does feel awfully cheap.
It hasn't broken so I am not complaining.

Pros:
Hard shell holster.
Clone of the real-steel ITW fast mags.
2 retention bands are adjustable for tighter or looser grip on pull (my retention is medium)
Mags stay firmly put inside holster even when upside down.
Attaches to molle gear fairly easy.

Cons:
Attachments bands are a little cheap feeling.

This is a good product for cost efficient fast mag style magazine holsters.
TIP: Don't try to force the loops through when installing. If you do then the straps will probably tear or snap.
by Will A. on 01/28/2014
"Ok I've bought two sets of these now and I would have to say they are my favorite way to carry my mags. The first time I bought them the rubber was extremely tight and held the mag in real tight, which is good, the second set I bought the rubber was loose and I was a little concerned but after a bit it tighten up and I have no problems.

Pros:
Mags stay tight and come out easily
can be mounted upside down on the back of my vest and still be used 100% flawlessly
don't have any problem going prone with them
low profile

Cons:
the rubber can ether be tight or loose when you get them
bot sets I've gotten the type that has the thing that sticks up on the back and I don't know what they are for



Fit my Elite Force Midcaps and my PMags with no problem. metal fit to but I don't use them
by Thuytran N. on 03/21/2013
"Since there are no reviews for this and I always wondered what these were like before I bought them, let me clarify for people now that I have.

Pros:
-Fits M4 Mags (Tested with plastic midcaps and metal flashmags)
-Holds Mags tight enough so that they dont shake around but loose enough so you can get to them quickly
-Nice plastic Material
-Comes with 2 per set
-Fits belts & molle on regular vests

Cons:
NONE!

Overall, if you are looking for a unique way to carry your mags with quick access as well as high speed set up, I recommend this, 5/5

"They are great they hold the magazines really well. They are a darker color than the picture
by Peter O. on 10/05/2012
"This is a great product! I use these for my M4 mags and they work perfect. They allow for fast reload and are not as clumpsy as the other mag pouches. The quality is okay. I've used mine for a year now and they are still holding strong.

PROs
1. Fast reload
2. Good quality
3. Tight hold on mags, they won't fall out
4. Stackable

CONs
1. Color is not so great
2. Attaching them can be a pain

I will buy more when they are stocked again.
by Fabricio E. on 07/10/2017
"The quality of the pouch is good. If you are going cheap and you don't want pay for taco mag pouches. THIS POUCH IS YOUR BEST BET! the only reason why I did not suggest this pouch to be 5 stars is that there isa rubber piece inside of the pouch that if you put a magazine inside and take it out, you might remove the rubber piece. But you will notice it and its easy to put is back in. I wouldn't worry about it. This is still the second best choice if you are in a low budget.
by Dylan O. on 03/09/2014
"These are really good mag carriers, some of the best I've used. These are extremely good for CQB (in my opinion). I would recommend these to everybody, but these can be a REAL pain to attach.
by Jorge T. on 07/02/2013
"These do a good job of keeping mags in place. I have even tried putting my WE Glock mags and they fit fine but not the 50 rds extended ones because they move back and forth a lot. Regular cap pistol mags work just fine.

The way it stays in place is through a set of straps that you weave through your MOLLE vest and hook into the bottom of the mag carrier. These are made out of RUBBER so over time they will probably rip where they hook onto the mag carrier.

When I walked in to the store to buy them they already had a torn rubber strap so keep an eye out for that. Evike was more than generous enough to go ahead and replace the one that had a torn rubber strap.

Hope this helped
by Matt R. on 07/10/2013
"I received these yesterday and my first impression is that they're really cool. But the main reason I really don't like these, the mounting straps are a really thin rubber strap that tears extremely easily. Each pouch has 2 straps. Both of the straps of one of the pouches already ripped. And on the other one, 1 of them is fine but the other one is just about to rip. So basically I have 1 pouch.

Pros:
Fast reload
Plastic build quality
Holds M4 mags perfectly
More of a CB color

Cons:
Mounting straps
Pretty much everything rubber

If you get these, I HIGHLY recommend buying cloth straps to make sure they don't rip.

2.5/5
