It says 1 mag per pocket but it looks like it will hold 2. It is either this Chest Rig Chest Rig
or a Hungarian Vinyl Pouch Hungarian Pouch

Rate it? I have no type of magazine carrying devices and this looks like one that I would buy. It would be pretty funny to see someone walk into a range with it on! It would be very cool for outdoor use. the Hungarian pouch is a little more discreet but looks like it doesn't do as much cool stuff. both look like good buys to me.

FYI, the Hungarian pouches are available in used, good condition for $7.99 at www.clearviewinvestments and canvas CHicom rigs that hold one mag per pouch (3 total) are available at Centerfiressytems.com for $15.

Hugnarian Pouches IMHO might be a bit more pracitical at the range. I know at my range anyone using a Chicom style chest rig would be looked at a bit funny. Also, you can easily take off the Hungarian pouch and still use it on a tabletop, not so easy with a chest rig (although still posiible).

Of course, I think if you were doing a tacical carbine course or a "high spped low drag" type guy the chest rig is a lot more funcational. It would be useful in a vehicle I would imagine.

Either way they are both a good, inexpensive solution to carrying mags. I also am a fan of the East German 4 mag belt pouch.

Looks like the most bang for buck. If I read it right, 2 mags per pouch or 1 ??

The other goofy thing about the chinese rig is that you have to tie it on in the back.
It does the job but it's ancient tech.

I use a six place over the shoulder pouches for the majority of my shooting transporting. I do have a little used Black Hawk vest for SHTF. Most recent couple I got from Clearview. My only critique of the CV brand is the flaps could be a little longer.


Look around your local gunshow and you ought to be able to find these.

The only thing I don't like about the Russian vests is that they have so many metal parts to scratch your weapons, I have a few US made rigs that have fewer metal parts. I own a Tarzan M22 Spetnaz assault vest.
