I had a friend recommend this company to me so I thought I would give them a try.

I ordered 2x 1911 mag pouches and 2x GLOCK mag pouches on Thursday of last week. The single pouches were $11.95 each. Shipping was very cheap. My total was $54.80.

The pouches arrived yesterday in a small padded envelope. I was surprised how small the envelope was until I opened it and pulled the pouches out. They are very compact. One could put a good many of these on your belt for a match or in class and not take up much room at all .... and for this price you could actually afford to buy a bunch of them.

I inserted mags in each pouch then gave it a tug to check the retention. I was really pleased with how well they held. I could hold the pouch upside down and shake it without fear the loaded mag would come out.

I only tested on on a belt to see how well it held. I did a few quick, firm grabs of the mag to pull it out of the pouch and it (the pouch) stayed put. I was slightly concerned they might wobble too much or not hold well due to the fact they are all 1.75" by default and I wear a 1.5" belt. No worries there. I think they are fine.

I read a review on another site after placing my order. The reviewer felt they rode a bit lower on the belt than he liked. I see his complaint as they do ride lower than most of the pouches I've tried. Fact is ... I like it riding lower. The mags didn't jab me in the ribs like with other pouches.

This is a very simple design that seems to work. I will continue to use my Dale Fricke horizontal pouches for EDC but these will definitely be used in classes and matches (where legal) as supplements or in place of the doubles I currently use.

Check them out. Tell Brian (the owner) I sent you.

thanx for the review. i might try one for my 1911 :)
What's funny is I figured I would need to order a bunch o fmags to make it worth paying shipping. You will be shocked when you see the shipping charge for a single pouch. It's CHEAP. IIRC it was like $2. It was even less than $2 each since I ordered 4.

Pics or it didn't happen! LOL,

Seriously, do the mags allow for adjustable attention?

No adjustable tension. None needed. Really, I was surprised how well they held. TheLaw .... trying to arrange lunch with jlweems tomorrow. See if you can make it too. I'll bring them if you can. Call me tonight if you can so I put them in the truck.

I have to head over near GLOCK's headquarters tomorrow for a customer experience resolution. Basically, I get to clean up after someone else failed to do their job properly. Wish I could go. Enjoy lunch for me!

How would you rate these compared to the comp-tac carriers?
I like the way these ride better than the Comp-Tac and the fact the design is so simple and compact. The Comp-Tac might be more "solid" construction. The Kytex are completely one piece. I'll put them in the truck if I remember so you can see them when we get together for me to get the PSS holster. I like these a lot. They are also less than the half the price of the Comp-Tac and take up much less room on the belt.

Again, I want to run these in a class in a couple of weeks and at the next IDPA match to see if they will stay on the belt well while being tugged on good. If so, they are a definite winner in my book.

Isn't that waht everyone does? lol

GunNut bought a couple of light pouches from him ... one vertical and one horizontal. He can chime in but he is pleased with them.

I put one of each platform in my truck so either of you can see them if we can get lunch scheduled this week.

I should have been more clear when you asked me to compare these to Comp-Tac. I said I like the way they ride better than CT. Specifically, these hold more snug to the body and ride lower (less/no rib gigging).

I was the one who told Vol about these pouches. I bought several a month ago but I haven't had much time to put them into the rotation except for a few short range sessions. They are very similar to the ready tactical pouches and are more of a competition type pouch. I don't think they are the best product for carry but they are perfect range/classes/competition. They take up very little space on the belt which works well for the real estate on my waist. The price can't be beat.

I'm thinking of their single G19 mag and Light pouch.
I ordered one of those this morning. Told Brian that Vol sent me, but it didn't save me any money! Lol. But he did guarantee he would make and ship it within 24hours. Guess you can't beat that.

Thanks for the post and PM, Vol.
Got the 9/40 Mag Pouch/Light carrier yesterday that I ordered Tuesday.
Great workmanship. The retention on the mag pouch is not as great as your's, however.
Turned it upside down and shook it a couple of times and a loaded 26 mag fell out.
The light stayed in place. I think I can live with it if I don't have to stand on my head! Can maybe do some adjustments myself.
Brian at Kytex Gear is great to deal with and lived up to his promise to make it and ship it
within 24 hours. :cool:
