    I actually use the blade tech pouch on my work duty belt. The only modification Iíve done to it is to put a drop of lok tite on the tension screw.

    Chest rigs arenít really about ďthis is how Iím going to *fight*Ē but are about making your time on the line easier in high volume classes. Your rifle gunfight probably isnít going to involve a belt pouch either, or a reload at all for that matter. In class, speed/emergency reloads are from the belt, admin reloads from the chest, and back-feed the belt from the chest.

    The Ready Tactical kydex AR mag pouch has been my go to for... I dunno ten or fifteen years?

    Combine one, maybe two, of those on a belt and a chest rig to hold the rest and youíre more than good.
    If you are taking a class and want to run a belt reload or two on a normal belt the ready tac is the answer for sure. I have several of them and run them when I want a low profile but rifle mag on me at work with my plain clothes set up or I don't have time to change to the big belt I can throw a rifle mag on my belt etc. For a battle belt set up aka permanent mounting I like the esstac pouches (medium or short not tall).

    I have these on my competition rig and I'd love to find a way to attach the Ready Tactical so they don't have that "lip" at the back and I could cram them closer together.

    Edit:
    I actually have these, but the issue is the same

    Class is a relatively basic Carbine Operators class put on by a local group I've taken some other classes with. Round count should be 250-300 rounds over the 8 hour course, so not high volume. If I can take 3 mags to the line, I don't expect to have to back fill too much. Ill take the chest rig just in case though I guess.

    The ready tactical pouches look good too.

    sounds like you'd be good. My approach to something like that is two RT pouches for reloads and a barney mag in my back pocket to start the relay.

    I bought two of the AR15 mag pouches from JM Custom Kydex for this exact purpose. Ran both of them for reloads off my regular EDC belt.

    I like them so much I keep one in my rifle bag at work. Easy on/off solution for a reload while deploying a rifle.

    Possibly unpopular opinion: I really like the Blue Force Gear helium whisper belt mount pouches for this. They are inexpensive, very low profile, and work well. I love that I can have the pouches for pistol and carbine reloads laying flat in my kit bag, thread them on my EDC belt, and take a class or be low-profile if the situation demands it.

    You can restow a mag in them with some practice, though Iíll typically opt for a back pocket if speed is required.

    I have been using a Slate Creek Tactical AR-15 magazine pouch. It retains well, is concealable (if that is something you need), is reversible, and is available with a variety of mounting options. Here is a link: "https://sctactical.com/product/ar15m4-magazine-carrier/". The owner is a dear friend. I have been very happy with the kydex Slate Creek Tactical makes for me. One or two of these and a cloth dump pouch and you should be all set. I hope that helps.

    It has been awhile since I tried, but my lasting memory of attempting this ended just short of throwing the damn things across the room!😁

    I have short stubby fingers, but I could imagine it being quite difficult if I didn't.
