I’m looking to get a spare mag holster that can be IWB or OWB and has a belt clip so I don’t have to undue my belt to get it on/off. I do have a double mag holder but used that when I was shooting IDPA and would like a single for EDC. I wear it on my weak side and am not interested in the pistol holsters that also hold a spare mag...kinda counter intuitive if you ask me.I don’t have a preference on materials but would like retention so it doesn’t pop out if I become active. Single stack P220 is what I need it for. So Sigforum members...what are your recommendations?

I know it's not what you're asking for, but I try to be the "grey man". I use a Gerber multi-tool pouch with the top velcro flap. I've been using some variation of these for 13 years and have never had anyone question it.
For my single stacks, I have a nylon knife case in similar fashion that is a bit thinner and holds a P239 mag perfectly.
Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.
Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

I like my Remora grippy-type single mag holder. It can be worn IWB or in-between belt and waistband. If you get the one w/ the clip, it gives you all the options of clip or clipless, IWB, OWB, between belt & WB. They're also good for carrying flashlights, Leatherman-style multitools, large folding pocket knives, whatever else you can think to fit in one.
ETA: I also agree w/ chongo. Depending on how long your mag is, the Remora doesn't scream gun accessory if someone catches a glimpse of it. Few people outside of other shooters will recognize a magazine base plate.
I can't get my janky ass Hughesnet out here at the farm to work well so no link, but look up Blue Force Gear Ten Speed single mag pouch. Has velcro type loop so you can put on or off without removing belt if you wear it vertical. Elastic so holds single or double stack mags. It holds them very securely.
Not a good IWB solution but it has been the best easy on easy off spare mag holder I've tried.

I have a black DeSantis single mag holster with a clip. It is like this only black. It was my son's but was barely used if at all. If you think it will work for you, I will send it.

I have 3 of their mag carriers.
I preordered two of the universal mag carriers from pitbull tactical. It's supposed to do IWB and OWB. It's no longer on sale for $10 each.
I'll report back whenever I get them in.

sorry for the delayed response...thank you all for your input and especially to AZsig for the offer...you are a shining example of what makes this a great place! I’m going to order one of the comp-tac as I think I’ll like the kydex option. again...thanks to all!

I like the IWB model by Comptac.

I used to use multitool holsters for a few months until I settled on the Safariland 123.
I have three (I think). Maybe four. They are pretty inexpensive. These have worked very well for me for the last 8 years with Sig P220, P239, Walther PPS and PPQ mags. PPS mags in particular have a kind of wonky baseplate that this pouch smooths out and contains very well. It has made it a very easy thing for me to always carry one extra mag for any of the four of those weapons.
I usually leave a mag in for months before ever messing with the velcro, just sliding a belt through it when changing pants. So the velcro has stood up extremely well.

My favorite double magazine pouch is the Milt Sparks IPD, an IWB offering that should work quite well with P220 mags. I use the one shown for 1911 mags. Positioned at about 8:30ish on the belt, the IPD rides high and keeps two mags snug and even comfortable.
Granted - I was not a fan of the spine-to-spine orientation of the mags. The pouch requires the wearer to carry the mags this way. I would prefer bullets-forward for both mags (and there are IWB pouches that provide exactly that); with practice, though, this has proven to work and work well for me.
EDITED TO ADD: all well and good, until I reread the OP and saw that a single mag is what’s desired for EDC. I know Sparks makes a single mag variant of what I’ve posted, their “IPS” IWB mag pouch. I use their S4C OWB singles as well as a Galco Concealable single OWB pouch. My favorite single-mag OWB solution is the Magholder, LLC horizontal magazine carrier.

about 30 bucks but quality kydex with a firm hold.

This is exactly what I have done. A pair of 239 mags ride in my Leatherman case.

I've also had pretty good luck with nylon knife pouches. The ones I have (a P239 size one and a 1911 size one that will alternatively hold a double stack 9mm mag) wear horizontally on the belt. That means you have to wear it pretty far back or the rear end of it will poke out and make a noticeable bulge in your shirt. It can also be less than comfortable, especially with a double stack mag, if you spend a lot of time seated or driving. In the future I'll likely switch to a vertically riding IWB carrier.

I've been using the universal mag carrier from Pitbull Tactical. Do far, so good.

I carry horizontal but PJ Holster makes excellent carriers in vertical too:
These work as a good horizontal option as well:
