The Speed Cut Fitted Pistol Magazine Pouch was designed to fill a highly specific role. A derivative of the Fitted Pistol Magazine Pouch, it covers only 2″ of the magazine to allow the shooter to access more of the exposed surface and giving the magazine less distance to travel before clearing the edge.
The less distance the magazine has to travel to leave the pouch, the more important the passive retention features are. Retention on the Fitted Pistol Magazine Pouch is largely a function of fit. On a Speed Cut pouch, the fit is tight. The design itself is comparable with polymer magazine holders, except it’s light weight, low profile with a small footprint, offers MOLLE compatibility and is not subject to breakage in the way certain plastics are. Paired with the MALICE Clip Belt Stabilizer or PALS Belt Platform, the Fitted Pistol Magazine Pouch is equally at home on a belt as on a PALS grid.
The Fitted Pistol Magazine Pouch, Speed Cut is a good example of work done in concert with a customer to modify an existing design to meet a specific need. The customer wins because he gets the custom solution he asks for and adding a new product design to the portfolio is a benefit to Down Range Gear.
