1-mag pouch, AR15-AK
Single magazine pouch for one AK/RK or AR15 30 round magazine. Tuck tab and hook and loop lid closure, PALS and belt compatible attachment system.
The straight lid keeps the magazine in place, covers it and protects it from the worst muck. The tuck tab and hook-and-loop closure system on the lid can be closed in two positions: high for AK bananas and low for more humane AR15 magazines. The low position is also quite nice for carrying a Glock 17 without optics or large lights. We aren’t saying this is a good pistol holster, but you can use this to carry a pistol.
External reinforcement webbing along the bottom adds some service life, as this tends to be where this kind of pouches wear through first. At the very bottom is a drainage grommet to let water out.
The rear features our standard PALS attachment webbing system with tuck tabs. The attachment straps can also be woven into belt loops for 45-50 mm wide belts.
LID CLOSURE SYSTEM
The lid on this pouch is closed using a polyethylene reinforced tuck tab and hook-and-loop. A tuck tab is mechanically very simple, but extremely reliable compared to plastic buckles, press studs or just using hook and loop. This is indeed almost identical to how the attachment straps are locked into place on all our PALS attachable pouches, just shorter and with a grip tab for rapid opening.
The hook-and-loop allows the pouch to stay securely closed even when half empty, and to be quickly closed without tucking in the tab. The hook piece can be covered with a sewn-in piece of loop for silent operation.
Pro-tip: when first using a brand-new pouch, press the tuck tab with your fingers to give it a C-bend. This will make it far easier to use as the claw-like shape is better at finding its way into the little webbing pocket which locks it. Don’t worry, polyethylene (in all its low-tech boring glory) is very crush resistant and will not crack or break, that’s why we use it.
