Hey all, I do a lot of hiking, and usually have on a large backpack. I carry my AR15 with me most of the time, and like to shoot it quite a bit out in the middle of nowhere where I hike (Bob Marshall wilderness). These are often up to 9 mile hikes, and I do not mind carrying the gun with me.

What I want is a 2 mag pouch of some sort that secures the mags decently (no completely open top) that I can hang on my belt.

Any recommendations?

What is your price range and does color of the pouches matter?

Have you checked ebay under military surplus?

This is what I carry on my vest. I don't see why it couldn't go on a belt or a molle backpack.

I would go with ITW FastMag, Gen 3 pouches. You can get the belt mount ones and configure them side by side or staggered stacked.
They have great retention, fast accesss... I have them on my training war belt rig but molles.

Four responses with four opinions. Get the picture?

Either one of these would be my suggestion, or hit the local Army/Navy surplus store and find an old ALICE triple magazine pouch for about $5.

HSGI Taco pouch with a paddle. It works with PMAGS, bottom first with the cap on. With the paddle attachment you won't have to screw around too much taking your belt off and threading it through.

Tactical Tailor does well, as does HSGI and others.


If it's simply 'carrying them with you" the six-mag bandolier from www.unclesamsretailoutlet.com will do fine for cheap.

I was able to find this one for only $4 at my local Army Navy Surplus. I think I'll give it a try to see how I like it. It is in really good shape, the dark spots are water that's not dry yet from washing it.

Excellent! Cheap, simple, looks reasonably solid.

Edit: Now we just need to work on your choice of ammo... :whistling:

Have you considered a pair of 24/7 cargo pants or cargo shorts? Inside each cargo pocket are two pockets made to hold AR magazines flat in the pocket out of sight http://www.uscav.com/productinfo.aspx?productid=17162&tabid=548 (http://www.uscav.com/productinfo.aspx?productid=17162&tabid=548).

:wow:

Were they reloads or factory ammo?

What TAP load do you have?

The M855 was all packaged up in a Federal box and sealed, and the individual boxes inside said American Eagle, so I believe it is new.

The TAP I have is the 75 gr stuff chambered in 5.56. I got it here, but the guy is out now:

Then you are in good shape. The 8126N loads are good ****, especially for SBRs. When you're backpacking, though, you might wanna consider some deeper-penetrating loads. I believe many of the Barnes TSX loads are known for better penetration in wild animals, and still give plenty of expansion (they expand, not frag).

Ya I've only got about 150 rounds of the stuff so it lives in my defense magazines. Mostly when I hike I bring 1 mag of good stuff and a few of cheaper stuff to shoot around with.

Not a bad plan. I've got close to 300 of 75gr, and it's all loaded in mags. I got too good of a deal on it when I found it not to stock up at least a little bit.
