So; I was not happy with the first one and its apparently a bit on the loose side, releasing the mags after shaking vigorously. So I made a 2nd one with simplified back panel, reduced sizing on some parts, and gave it edge taping on the side edges. It is much better and looks more professional

I would WANT my mags to release easily. That’s why most use a shock cord/bungee keeper, or a flap. Keep them slightly loose, and sew on a few points to run some cords through. There’s a knot on the back, so you can replace them when they wear out.



The point of the kydex wedge inserts is to be tight enough to not need secondary retention. Shop All - Magazine Pouches - 5.56 - Esstac

Some people have run their Esstacs upside down, or horizontal.

Same basic principle as the kydex pistol mag holders and kydex holsters really... with the shape of the 6.5 mags, I don't think bungees would work all that well, IMO. Its a similar problem I've found with the Redball 9mm mags
