Most of us who carry a firearm have many drawers and bins full of different magazine pouches. It can be annoying when changing platforms to buy magazine pouches, and a lot of universally sized magazine pouches do not have appropriate retention levels for all magazines. The new “Burrito” magazine pouch from Mean Gene Leather seeks to solve that problem by using springs to contain whatever item one chooses to carry in them. For those of you familiar with the “TACO” pouch, Gene Higdon founded High Speed Gear and designed the TACO prior to selling the company. Details of the “Burrito” Per MGL:
Item will begin shipping on 07/12/2016 | Pre-Order will end on 07/05/2016, pricing will then increase to regular pricing.The “Burrito”, an open top pouch will come equipped with Springs that maintain a positive retention to assure the contents remain secured within. Almost every leather magazine pouch produced to date is limited to either a single or a double stacked magazine. The “Burrito” now gives the user to choose a majority of single or double stacked magazines without having to purchase multiple pouches. The “Burrito” allows you to carry other items such as flashlight and other similar sized items. These pouches have triple stitching on the leather loops to fit 1.5” belts. For 1.75” belt can be ordered upon special request.*Handmade in the USA.*Made from US leather.*Springs made in the US, constructed of Heat Treated 17-4 Stainless steel.*And more importantly, Made by the person whom Invented and brought you the First Positive Bungee cord retention magazine pouch!Available colors:*Black, with Black thread*Chocolate, with Black thread*Brown, with Brown thread*Natural Leather, with Old Sand threadPrice:

Personally, I’ll be looking to try some of these out, as my EDC mag and multitool pouches are starting to fall apart. It’d sure be nice to have one pouch to hold most of my different CCW magazines, and I’m also curious to see how these fare in competition use.
