Hard to Access

The pouch is well made. The velcro is stable, with the buttons doing a great job at securing the flaps.
That's about where my praise ends. The pouch is overall too deep. Regular GI magazines and PMAGs sit too deep in the pouch. When conducting a speed reload it's very difficult to access a new magaizine. Regardless of whether or not you have gloves on or bare hands, it's still difficult.
Now magpuls work to help alleviate this but the issue is still the same. Do you want to purcahse a pouch that requires additional purcahses? Or would you rather just purchase a pouch that works and works well.
BDS is a great company and there quality of work is great, this just should have gone back to the drawing board after a few T&E's took place on the range or in combat.
I'm here in Afghanistan and the last thing I want to do is struggled to pull out a mag when I need it most.
