Old School mag pouches Login/Join

So, I'm putting together a battle belt, and all I can seem to find are single or double mag pouches that are designed for competition.

Does anyone know if someone has modernized the old snap cover pouches that hold 3 mags, the back in 'Nam H-gear stuff? I don't need high speed, sub millisecond stuff. I need good retention and the ability to carry more mags.

Thanks!

I've bought some pouches for my Garand from Olongapo Outfitters. Don't know if it's what you are looking for but he makes good gear.

you could probably just hit up some surplus stores and get the old OD TA-50-type mag pouches for cheap.

I bought 6 or 8 at a gunshow awhile back for like $1.50 apiece and they work for what you describe.

Not necessarily HSLD but they get the job done.

Well you can get good retention without a covering flap.

An example:

This offers good retention, with or without a flap (but the flap is velcro, not snaps):

Surplus store, Amazon, eBay...
Get the old school mag pouches, and cut the grenade pouches off on the sides with a razor.
