I ordered one and I'd like to sugjest ya'll add a pair of Velcro straps over the mag pockets to keep them more secure, I've found in mine after only a day of owning it that the mags, if you are not careful, can slide out and hit the ground. I'll be sewing a pair of cheap simple straps of some sort onto mine. Maybe one that buttons down, which ever is cheapest... but I hope someone there at the factory reads these and just gives it some thought...

my thinking is that a product shouldnt require a mod to function as it's ment to though, it's a cheap change in design that could be done right at the supplier using eather a small velcro backed strip of material. Wouldn't add but maybe 50 cents to making them and it would work alot better imo. I'm going to eather sew something in or someone suggested putting a type of rubber liner in the mag holders to.

I agree. The pouches should have a a hook & loop (e.g. Velcro) closure. On another thread on this topic, I implemented the suggestion of black spongy shelf-liner material from WallyWorld to line the inside of the pouches. Make a U-strap of the spongy liner material about one inch longer than the long side of the magazine. Insert magazine with the U-strap into the pouch. Tuck in the loose ends. Works if you are not handy with needle and thread. I'd also like to try an adhesive on the outside of the spongy liner, insert with magazine, withdraw magazine and let adhesive dry for a more permanent liner.

I'll look for that thread reference.

The mags falling out issue is what has kept me from buying the HP buttpad. Instead I'm working on my own that will hold the mags vertically instead of horizontally. If it works out the way I want, I should be able to keep 3 mags on each side of the buttstock.
