View Full Version : Need help choosing mag holder

Leather versus Non-leather?

Any suggested brands? I have a 1 1/2" wide belt. I'm looking for a dual-mag holder for 226 mags.

I've heard some leather openings can get loose, so I'm looking for something that will remain secure without having to resort to som sort of cover. Horsehide would be a plus. I'm looking for maximum comfortability, but would also like to know of concealment options.

Any other useful information or suggestions woud be appreciated. Thanks!

Is this for daily carry? On duty? off duty? competitions?

I would recommend a "kydex" setup with an open top. They have a screw adjustment to set the retention for your particular magazine.

btw, "comfortability" isn't a word. You were looking for "comfort".

This will be for daily carry. "Comfortability"...ah well, irregardless, it'd be nice to have something IWB without that feel of plastic against the skin. I've heard kydex is pretty uncomfortable as they go, and I wasn't sure how I'd last carrying with a kydex holder that from 6 to 12 hours at a time. But I'm willing to try it just so I know. :)
