Dear flannel daddy, can you give your thoughts on magazines in a video?
Toki -EJ1 (4 days ago)
Seems pretty dumb to have a carrier that holds just 1 magazine. Unless its a backup or something. Why not have one that holds 3 or 4?

"Not great" retention = 1. "Great" noise reduction = 1...!!!How are you scoring these my dude? You're like the UFC judges. Or maybe I got it wrong great and not great are the same thing this is regarding the hs tacos 🌮

Condor MA43 Bungee pouches are insane and surprisingly lasted. I can get 4 of these things for the price of a couple of the hsgi. both are prone to fray and get holes so id rather have a bunch of cheap ones cause im a jew lol.

If you're hanging upside down over a lava pit, an upside down mag pouch suddenly makes a lot of sense.
Rodiculous (21 days ago)
you can put bungees on the tacos tho can you not? I think I saw it referenced somewhere. I love the gcodes because I primarily run AK and you can shove the mags back in one handed unlike the taco. the "kaiyowees" are not an option for me unfortunately due to AK mag design but I like their pistol mags!

I use the HSGI since it fit all mags, M4, M14, AK no prob.
stewbacca117 (4 months ago)
Used to use FastMAGs and liked them, even if they were inverted (😎✈️🖕) but now G codes all the way, the pistol ones are flexible enough to take a variety of calibre mags/snickers/torches/cyalumes/lipsticks and the retention is great. Had to tie wrap mine together if they're PALS mounted to stop them flapping around though.
Jeffie Jeff's Art (4 months ago)
I have the esstac mag pouches. I like them however because they are so short, my heavy mags tend to flop forward or lean forward off the plate carrier which is annoying.
Chad Ashton (4 months ago)
Thoughts on a stock mounted mag pouch for a patrol officer? That way in a SHTF situation when you might not have time to grab other gear, at least you'll have 60 rounds with you. If not a stock mounted option...what other options would you suggest if carrying a spare mag(s) on your person at all times isn't feasible?

Esstac Kywi pouches are the best I’ve EVER used.
Tom Currie (7 months ago)
Maybe I missed something even watching the video twice but it seems that you had two categories where a higher rating was better and one category where a lower rating was better. This might make sense if we had categories where the ratings were actual measurements (capacity, time, weight, etc) but not so much when the ratings are all value judgements. If you're going to give ratings, it would make more sense if all the categories used a more-clips-are-better scale. Also consider a visual summary showing an image with each of the products and their ratings.

Ordered the Esstac KYWI triple 7.62 using Scar 17 20rd mags. Got the Daeodon for my Veritas plate carrier which mainly uses velcro loops to attach to the soft side velcro on the bottom front of my plate carrier. It has an additional male clasps that go into female clasps you weave through the molle. The KYWI is more streamlined no bungies to snag on branches or foliage you may be going through. Aesthetically they look the best. The triple gap pistol pouches are great for CZ double stack mags to give room for the extended lips of the base plates which also aids in ease of hand purchase between mags but are mainly for belts because of the gap they don’t line up with the molle.

HGSI tacos have ribs to help secure polymer magazines. Something that a smooth USGI mag won’t help with

All of the latent repressed homosexuality on this channel is hard to listen to why not just come out. and say your gay.. The esstac mag pouches are crap. Single stitching and a lot of other errors in construction The customer support sucks as well. I would not recommend these mag pouches to anyone who wants there mags retained within the pouch, the pistol mag will fall right out. I own this product I am speaking from experience.
Chris M (9 months ago)
What do you prefer better HSGI taco or G Code (comment section)? I need to buy some and just dont know which one..

Do the esstacs fit AK MAGS?
11B WARHAMMER 1 (10 months ago)
Tacos have a loop strip on the inside to allow for increased retention with the addition of one or two adhesive hook pieces to your mags.

Good product, but the customer service at G-Code SUCKS. You can't get them on the phone and the don't reply to emails. If you're buying the product, don't buy direct. Terrible experience.

How does the scorpion and itw fast mag do with pmags?
Bill Ford (11 months ago)
Nice video! Good! I own a lot of mags. I use #podavach loader for `em and original mil. pouches.

I watch this every night before bed just so I can hear you say “I love you” at the end before I fall asleep 😍
Mr. Bjord (11 months ago)
So here's something I've found using the TACOs. 1. TACOs that hold more than one magazine are crap because the level of retention is going to drop once one of the pouches is emptied. Run singles only. 2. They work better with PMAGs in my experience. More there for the cordura backing to grip onto.

do you know what's louder than a plastic pouch?  GIANT ALUMINUM MAGAZINE SWINGING ALL OVER THE PLACE
eminem46787 (11 months ago)
one thing you didnt consider is ease of putting them back into the pouch whilst under stress IE under contact
D1ABOLU5 (1 year ago)
A recommendation: look up the speed reload series of pouches from Direct Action Gear. It's like a deeper taco that is soft, lighter and collapses flat, and will fit anything from ARs to AKs to SRs, single OR double stack.

Garand Thumb, what are your thoughts on the g code soft shell scorpions vs the g code hard shell ones?
The Shaggy Rifleman (1 year ago)
For me, the best pouches are the 7 dollar Tactical Performance pouches from Academy. But only because they're for my range bag, and I don't want the mags flopping around during transport. When I get body armor, I will be looking at better options. Thank you for this video. 😂

What about mags? Seems like you favor good ol GI mags. Do you have the Magpul parts kits in them? What do you think about their Emags?
sam jefferies (1 year ago)
Why would noise be a factor!? You’ve just fired off a full mag? Surely silently changing your magazine is like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted...

I liked the brand comparisons based on what one needs the pouch for; HALO ops, competition, patrol duties, etc. One preference is tied to how you are going to use/need the product. Good approach to gear reviews.
Doug Caldwell (1 year ago)
Great advice on different criteria that will be important depending on one's task. How are the different pouches attached to a 'molle' belt or harness?

Joel Berryhill (1 year ago)
Doesn't the magazine itself cause the most noise? I like full flaps so obstacles, my gear or my rifle doesn't bang on the mag and make noise.
Fee_ Lo (1 year ago)
I’ve been using the taco and have found they can strip a round out of your mag when you pull it out. Not good... especially here in California where we are limited to 10. I’m in the market for something new.
