Was hoping to use the 15 round magazines with the P365 for winter carry under bulkier cover clothing as I do now for the P228, and then use the 12-round magazines under lighter cover clothing for the summer, as I do now. Looks like the P365 with the 15 round magazines will have a longer hand grip than the 228. It is that buttstock / hand grip that affects concealability under cover clothing, and so it might need some more bulky cover than the 228, but presumably would still be lighter and less bulky overall??? Presumably. Will find out when the magazines arrive from Sig and will really figure it out next winter, I guess.
Hoping the 15 round magazines will be useful as carry in the gun itself. I'm not a spare magazine kind of guy. I'm just not. Well, unless I'm going to a mall, in which case I'm a spare gun kind of guy.
I don't carry a spare so much for capacity as for "murphy." If under high stress or mag release accidentally bumped or if in a struggle the mag is ejected or just a mag failure, that is why I carry a spare with more ammo being a distant #2 reason.

That 15 round mag looks huge. It puts the height of the P365 into G17 territory! They must have run out of magic making the P365 and not had any left to make mags with. I'll probably still buy one to carry as a spare, but I'm honestly kind of disappointed at how big it is.
