Ok here is what I'm looking for and who else to help but the hive!

I'm wanting a 'mag bag' for my primary vehicles. It doesn't have to be ubber tactical. Something to just leave in the vehicles so they are there in case of an emergency. Not looking to spend $100 each either.

and ............go.

Ncstar.

If you want that size, I'd just get a camera bag. Less conspicuous. If you're running around a disaster area with something "tactical", cops WILL stop you and take it away from you.

ETA: The strap has frayed and come off in Amazon's own photo! Go go China airsoft gear!

I am guessing at least 12 if you put them in right.

I keep a Glock 23C , holster, 5 spare mags and a spare box of shells, flashlight,pepper spray and a knife in it and there is plenty of room.

Bandoliers work pretty well and are relatively cheap.


How many mags do you want to carry?

AR15 Grab & Go bags from Olongapo Outfitters.
Currently available in OD and Coyote, though he also makes them in black, tan, Multicam and Marpat.

I bought the Maxpedition active shooter bag with the magazine front,I had so many mags and boxes of ammo plus a CZ 75 in it was almost to heavy to carry.

I had to take some of the stuff out.

Surplus chest rig from Midway or any other site that sells 'em. IIRC I paid $18 for one in great shape in multi-cam from Midway. Three mag pouches, which can actually hold two mags each, couple of other pouches for a radio, pistol mags, whatever, and some molle attachments.

Yeah, I'm all HSLD like dat.... lol...

Very nice piece of gear to have handy though.

Look at one of these. I use one for a range bag and it has more than enough room. It's heavy duty and comes with a shoulder strap too.

Yep. Built like a tank. Could probably fit a half dozen mags or so.

look at this: https://store.ar15.com/product.html?cat=26&pr=530



Its in the site store and holds 6 AR mags or pistol mags in the outer pockets, and then has a full inside area to fill up with first aid and multitools and other crap . I've got a few of them, one stays in my center console. they seem to be pretty decent. And only $28.

Doesn't have to be complicated.

I bet you could lots of "useful" things in this.

Bail Out Bags from LA Police gear are about $20 plus shipping, of course.
Mine hold about 15 mags.

If you want something inconspicuous check garage sales and get a couple of old used kids backpacks...

Preferably "hello kitty" or "my little pony".

I got a larue something or other bag. Works pretty good. Pouches for rifle and pistol mags. I forgot what I paid for it but I'm guessing there are cheaper similar options.

Not cheap but not bad, price-wise : RECON RIFLE BAG

It will hold 3 - 6 mags plus a few other essentials...I have one of the first generation ones for my "Get Home Bag". It goes everywhere I do and, other than getting kind of grungy, it has held up flawlessly for over 3 years.

Remember, the problem with "cheap" is that it will likely take a shit on you when you need it the most.

I was considering the BFG 10-speed Six-Pack, but like the look of that Olongapo bag too... Something like a generic backpack/book-bag/laptop bag/grocery bag/messenger bag really makes it easy to hump gear in a convenient and discreet manner though...

In a shtf cops may be searching or confiscating tactical looking bags. Def. will grab attention from people that know about such things when you might want to be unnoticed. I'd go w/ something like a laptop bag or cheap courier bag. I get a bunch free every year from trade shows. I would just get the cheap bandoleer linked above and stuff it in the bag w/ some water.

I use an Eagle Patrol Bandolier for a "grab and GO!" bag. Holds four AR mags and two Glock 17 mags securely. The pistol mag pouches will also hold something like a Surefire G2 or a multi-tool.

IIRC I paid around $30 for it. I think of it as a modern "possibles" bag or sorts... holds enough ammo to solve any realistic, and some unrealistic scenarios. I do admit it's not very low profile, if going unnoticed is your goal.

This is what I have. Very nice piece of gear. SKD has some decent pics: http://www.skdtac.com/Eagle-Patrol-Bandoleer-p/eag.250.htm
Mine is in Multicam

I also have some cheap $15 mag carrier for the 9mm carbine, problem is that it holds 8 mags - 8 32rd 9mm Colt magazines for an AR weighs a lot! And being a cheap item, it's a rather narrow strap. Not the most comfortable thing to carry around. Much more than what the EPB has and it's probably better to have a chest rig or plate carrier/vest with mag pouches attached.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 8:31:46 PM EST
I love all the guys saying get a laptop bag, cops might search a tactical bag. Did you miss the part about how this is for carrying rifle magazines in case of an emergency? Maybe I'm way out on a limb here but I'm assuming if he wants to carry rifle mags in an emergency he is going to have a rifle, and that rifle will stand out to a cop way more than a bag with molle loops on it.

It holds 12 AR10 mags perfect in the main compartment plus lots of other stuff.
I'll take some pics if you want
Eta natches sp? Had them for$ 35-40 forever; they may still have some.

Thats my thought about this whole thread...

If you want something that's the right dimensions but doesn't look tactical you should look through some flight bags.



Link Posted: 10/26/2013 11:48:14 PM EST


AR broken down in a tennis racquet bag.
Magazines in a gym bag.
Pair of too short white shorts, pastel polo shirt, white socks, white sneakers, wristband and headband. Maybe a sweater for added effect.

Your disguise is complete.




Unless you're a black guy.

REVIEW

I have one. Hella expensive but great for hauling mags to classes, range etc. You can strap to a car seat back.

as opposed to the EBR you are carrying?

I have never given much thought to civvy "bail out bags", although I do have a "BOB". I am of the opinion that they are for supplementing your basic load when you have to abandon your vehicle under duress (not that this is likely for me ). Thanks to this thread, I just ordered this. It has provisions for six rifle mags and three handgun mags. It comes with an insert for a holster that I probably will not use (I already have a pistol on me). I added an ATS pullout for a FAK, and a BFG Dapper for a light, multitool, etc.

Has any one practiced using the concept as the primary means of reloading their rifle? Was it a viable, although not optimal, method? Any solutions to make the concept more practical? Although this is really just a thought exercise for me, there are some that could use any info IRL.

Probably more than you're looking to spend, but this is my main bug-out-by-vehicle mag case.

It is about the same as the maxpedition active shooter bag. I posted a link to the USGI bandoleers earlier . The post was also intended to encourage some discussion on the application of bags of this sort. By discussing the application, you may get ideas on how to execute the concept inexpensively.

Holy shit! What do you carry for the rifle?

Use a duffel bag sometimes referred to as speed balls when filled with loaded magazines.
