Anyone running a kydex triple pistol mag pouch?  Looking to run 3 glock mags on a duty belt for work and not really seeing a whole lot that's brand name or recommended.

Thanks!

zero 9 holsters also makes a triple that has a slightly slimmer profile than safariland if i remember the photo correctly. 

Esstac Kywi has a triples. Several guys at work using the double style daily. Don’t see why a triple would be any different if it suits your needs.

On my belt for classes or other times that such an exposed rig is appropriate, I run the Safariland slimline triple that HE linked to above. I haven't tried it in other circumstances.

If you want to try one for cheap, I've got one of the Safariland Slimline triple mag pouches for sale in the Swap Meet.

I know these are designed with duty use in mind, but they have always interested me, do you know how well they conceal?

Mark I could probably put one at 9:00 or 7:30 (just behind my off-side hip) without a lot of difference under the baggy t-shirts/sweatshirts I normally wear. It will stick out further than a double mag pouch would (because the OAL dimension of the magazine is longer than the backstrap, so to speak). 
I probably would not wear one under a t-shirt where I normally have pistol mags on "duty" type setup.

I also personally give very few fucks about "printing" as it were.  

Does that make sense?

Thanks. If I were to try it out it would be up front around 10 to 11 o’clock for a righty. More often than not under a pullover hoodie.  It might work there. I’ve got room there for a double.  As a $20 experiment it might be worth a go.

I think under a hoodie is probably doable.

I think so. I’ve played with a Fastmag there and it works. This looks to be a little more low profile.

The safari lands are awful IMHO. I have two for duty use. I can never see my to get consistent retention across all three mags. Unfortunately, I have not yet found a Kydex or especially something in basket weave, triple mag pouch that is better. On my tac team belt (first spear agh), I run a nylon triple mag pouch that works great.

Very interested in other options, as my new agency does not have leather/basket weave requirement and allows outside carriers, so I am reconfiguring...

Yea the slimline triple was an absolute fail for me. I ended up getting a double and single kydex Comp-tac w/ techlock and running those as a triple.

I've avoided the bullets out Safariland triple due to seeing several shed mags on pursuits, fights or going over fences. How well do kywis retain?

Solid in my experience.  Been using them for about 2 years on a war belt (tac team assignment) - never had a retention issue.  Also very fast when you need a mag.

Ive used Esstac Kywis with their belt loops on my patrol belt for over a year.  I've used a Double Gap , Triple Gap, and Double Gap with AR Mag.  All have been fantastic.  My current rig is the double gap.  Get into shenanigans pretty regularly and never lost a mag.  The only reason I went back to the double pistol over everything else is to save weight on my belt.

Range use only for me, but they retain fine.  I prefer the gap version.  Even if your magazines don’t have wide baseplates, I think it’s nice having a little extra space between the mags if I’m going for the aft mag to perform a tac reload.

I’ve never lost a magazine from a KYWI and I fall down a lot of hills and stuff...

I've ran a kywi double gap pistol (2 o'clock position) and a single AR (3 o'clock position) on my first line for about 2 years now, no issues through a few weeks of training and several range trips. This included two three day FTXs with lots of patrolling, running, crawling, etc...very fast and reliable draw. Overall very happy with them.

Run the Safariland slimline triple mag pouch with MP .45 mags on duty belt for about 5 years without issue, never lost a mag... however retention was a bit different across the three mags due to only 2-retention screws.   However, Safariland is not a concealment pouch in my opinion.  Since going back to plain clothes team, running GAP Kiwi's on my vest and belt without issue for almost a year and in classes/training with no probs, really digging them. 

With a 1911, I would carry three spare magazines. Used an Eagle Industry's 3 mag pouch to do that, nylon over kydex (or sim) inserts throughout with no adjustment.  It worked during the time I used it, though I dropped a mag a handful of times.
