Emdom USA has released their Universal Pistol Magazine Pouch. Designed along a similar vein as the venerable HSGI Taco, the Universal Pistol Magazine Pouch uses shock-cord to allow the magazine to expand and contract based on the size of its contents. The UPMP is enclosed a bit more and I personally enjoy the ability to accept just about any magazine and the bevvy of other common combat gear including multi-tools, flashlights, etc.
