Sometime last year, there was a discussion on here about using a Tyvek mailing envelop to create a pocket magazine pouch. The idea was simple lightweight and low profile. I was looking for something that would let me slip a couple of spare mags into my back pocket and at the time I could not really find anything off the shelf that I liked. So an idea was stolen and tweaked. I did not have any Tyvek, But I did have some HEAVY mylar bags left over over from a project my company worked on along...
KyPlinker posted: Are the mags affected at all when you sit on then? Also how is the comfort? I have an aversion to things in my back pockets, to include wallets. The mags do not seem to be affected at all. The comfort level is high enough i have not noticed the maga in the back pocket. I also have not taken multiple hours long drive. If i do the mags would come out same.as my wallet. out an about town or out to dinner and movie it is more comfortable than i would have first thought
Id be in for 2 at $10, maybe even 2 at $18. If you get to pick color ways other than Multicam I'd be in for coyote or Woodland as a second. HSGI has been producing some of their TACOs in Woodland lately Thanks. It looks like a great pouch.
I'll ask about the smokes too - I was just looking at those today after reading the discussion about current grenades and thinking that I'd like to get some of those. My impression is that they still have the patterns for these past products but have focused on the TACO design, so they've eliminated those older "conventional" pouches. Personally, I don't really like the "busy" design of the TACO with the elastic cord and everything. Maybe I'm old fashioned... Dave
Thanks for the feedback. As I said, I'm suspicious about that low price they quoted, so I'll post an update here when I get more info from them, which will include a small amount to distribute their shipping cost per pouch, and then I would calculate postage on an individual basis. They did say that they would need me to confirm how many I intended to order before they could give me a final price quote. Dave
Gunner posted: I could go for one. I'd love to get a couple of their old smoke grenade pouches, but those are also discontinued. They seem to have ditched several excellent products after Gene sold the company. The smokes were excellent. I use one with my Vortex monocular. Not to add to your load 3ACR_SCOUT, but would they make a run of those as well?
At that price, I'm probably in for two also. Two rigs, why not? When you clarify the price, ask if custom order is all the same color also. I can live with MC but prefer OD... maybe I can trade you for that OD one you already got if this comes through
Hi folks, It seemed to be a consensus here that the High Speed Gear strobe light pouch is one of the better products out there for a dedicated strobe pouch, but HSGI discontinued it a few years ago, I think as they transitioned to their TACO line. I was hoping to find two Multicam pouches (I did get an OD pouch thanks for another member here), but I've had no luck. Here's the old SKD listing for the pouch: http://www.skdtac.com/HSGI-Strobe-Pouch-Modular-p/hsg.218.htm I contacted HSGI, and...
"OD green" is generic to me. You can toss that and put me in the Ranger green column. And I for one am fine falling back to anything but black (or UCP!). If prices stay good, go ahead and add me for 2 smokes as well.
Malpaso posted: Both are headed "smoke grenade pouch" I think one should be "strobe". Whoops! Sorry about that, that's correct, the first one is the strobe list. Roger, Shoobe, thanks both of you for the flexibility. Dave
Ok, here's what I'm tracking for requests so far - I just want to post this confirmation before I send in the inquiry to HSGI today.

I wouldn't worry about ordering too many. I for one would grab an extra if you can't get rid of them. And like you said, there will be the inevitable, "can't believe I'm just seeing this". Slight thread drift, I've used both MALICE and WTF, and always feel like there has to be something better. Anyone used the Maxpedition tacties or any of the other options?
Longeye posted: Since this is custom, I suggest checking to see if they can use the WTF attachment system rather than those awful Malice clips. This is the 21st century. Based on the $10 price that HSGI quoted, I have a feeling they may not be including a MALICE clip with the pouch. I'm personally OK with that, because I have a stash of WTF straps that I can use with mine. I definitely prefer those over MALICE clips and will use WTFs for mine, but I doubt that HSGI is going to convert over...
Ok, folks, I heard back from HSGI. Here's the rundown: They can only do special orders in multiples of 12 (I think this is a change from when I first inquired last year). They will produce multiple colors, but only in multiples of 12, so if we want something other than Multicam, we have to order 12 of them. At this point, I'm inclined to order 24 Multicam, which is the exact number of requests that I have, but if a few people might want an extra for a buddy or something, I'll bump it up to...
I swear I was up there on the chart right earlier, but I wanted to get 2 strobes, 1 smoke, so you are already up from your original count, yup. Did they stick to the $10 price for strobes after all, or have my reading skills devolved that much?
