Mag Carriers

Pistol Mag Carrier



What is a Mag Carrier?

A mag carrier, short for magazine carrier, is a specialized accessory designed to hold and provide easy access to spare magazines.

It may also be referred to as a mag pouch. It’s typically worn on the belt, either inside or outside the waistband. It’s designed to keep magazines in a convenient and accessible location.

They’re made from Kydex, polymer, or leather in most cases.

A good carrier should have a secure fit. This will prevent magazines from shifting or falling out during everyday carry or dynamic activities.

Do I Need a Mag Carrier?

You don’t NEED one, but they can be highly beneficial for several reasons:

  1. Accessibility: It ensures quick and efficient access to spare ammunition. Readily available magazines can be crucial, especially in self-defense or tactical situations.
  2. Convenience: It frees up pocket space and keeps magazines organized and accessible. This eliminates the need to fumble through pockets or bags when reloading, saving valuable time.
  3. Efficiency: It allows you to carry extra rounds of ammunition without the bulk and weight of loose magazines. This allows for a more balanced and comfortable carry. Particularly for those who prefer a firearm with a limited magazine capacity.
  4. Preparedness: It ensures you have extra ammunition available. This can be essential when reloading is necessary for personal protection or professional duties.

It isn’t a mandatory accessory. But, it offers practical advantages for individuals prioritizing preparedness, convenience, and efficient reloads. It’s especially beneficial for self-defense, law enforcement personnel, or anyone who wants the means to reload quickly. Ultimately, the decision to use one depends on your specific needs, preferences, and the level of preparedness you desire.

But, in our eyes, having reliable and durable carriers is essential. When selecting one, several factors must be considered to ensure you get the best product for your needs.

Mag Carrier Quality

First, you want to consider the quality of the materials used. If it is made from low-quality materials then it may not hold up over time. In addition, it may not provide the necessary retention to keep your magazines secure. 

Why we use Kydex: Kydex is lightweight and resistant to wear and tear, making it an excellent choice for mag carriers.

The Fit

Next, you want to consider the fit. If it is too loose then it may not provide the necessary retention. At the same time, one that is too tight may make it difficult to quickly and easily access your magazines. A custom-molded mag carrier designed to fit specific magazine sizes will provide the best fit and maximum retention.


Another critical factor to consider is the level of retention. Some mag pouches rely on passive retention, while others use active retention systems. Passive retention depends on the friction of the carrier to hold the magazine in place. 

Active retention uses a mechanism, such as a thumb break or locking system, to secure the magazine. The level of retention you choose will depend on your specific needs and preferences.

Customizable Options

Finally, you want to consider the customization options available. A mag carrier personalized to your needs and preferences is always a good choice. This can include different mounting options, such as belt loops or clips, as well as customizable colors, patterns, and designs.
