I dig. How do they work?
So the middle pouch is in secondary retention config (primary retention being the kydex inserts). When I'm done with the evolution requiring secondary retention, I slide that tab you see on top of the mag off the mag, running it wearer's forward along the bungee. I route the bungee around the pouch opening, and then I just tuck that tab under the top row of MOLLE (see left/right pouches for this endstate). I installed the bungee in the *middle* row of pouch MOLLE to buy myself enough slack so that the bungee stays out of the way of the pouch opening when not in use.
I've only tested this on flat range so far, but it's worked very smoothly. Mags come out and re-insert almost as if bungees aren't there at all. I've developed a slight "sweep and rock" motion (it becomes pretty obvious if you have all this stuff physically in front of you) during mag re-insertion as an insurance policy against snagging on a bungee. I tuck the slack bungee behind wearer's rear right corner of each mag pouch opening when the bungees are not in use. These overlapping practices (sweep/rock and corner tuck) have a 0% incidence of snags so far.
Hope that was helpful! Lmk if you have questions.
