Magazine pouch
« on: February 06, 2022, 02:50:30 PM »
Hi, can anyone recommend a good magazine pouch for a 14/15 round CZ compact mag. One magazine.  I would prefer leather but would consider other material. OWB, belt mounted. Flap with snap closure. I've seen some online but the fit isn't very specific. I thought perhaps someone here could lead me to the perfect one. ;D Thanks.

I have one of these Barsony horizontal mag pouches that fits my P-07 15 round or 17 round mags, depending on which snap position I use.

https://www.barsonyholsters.com/new-black-leather-horizontal-single-magazine-pouch-hbl1mag/

It is OWB and made of leather.  I use it with a 1.5 inch belt and don't think it would easily fit on a 1.75 belt.  It takes some break-in like a lot of leather items to fit mags and belts correctly.

I have another leather horizontal pouch from Black Arch that I actually like better and use more often, but they have been discontinued for years now.

Safariland makes a similar horizontal pouch to the Black Arch but it isn't made of real leather.  Also the Black Arch and Safariland pouches use velcro instead of a snap.

^^ Thank you for your response. I've looked at the Barsony mag pouches and they do have one that is a clip on model that is on my "maybe" list. I use a Kydex IWB holster that I like but the Kydex IWB mag holder digs in and bothers me.

My personal preference is to run the horizontal OWB type, with the base plate facing forward, because they poke me in the side less than the OWB vertical type, with the base plate facing upward, and definitely less than an IWB Kydex one would.  I am left handed and normally run an IWB Kydex holster around 8:00 and my spare mag either around 4:00 in a horizontal leather pouch, or else in my right front pocket in a leather organizer, if I'm carrying my single-stack .380.

Having a clip-on type of pouch might be more convenient but I go with the loop types and just thread my belt through them.  I thread my belt from left to right so the pouch goes on just before I thread it through the right-side belt loop of my pants.

I’ve had great success with Kytex- kydex OWB. Have used them exclusively for carry and in my competition games

I’m going to check out the Kydex now. I’ve not used them before.
