    If you're gonna have magpul mag assists then get open top, if not get closed pouches.

    Open top if you want a fast, quiet reload. Closed if you want an obnoxious, long reload. You get what I'm leaning towards?

    Are you doing an impression? If you are, follow what the operator you're basing your loadout off of would do. If your not go with open tops and mag pulls.

    Well, all I can say to this is most closed too mag pouches actually have a insert that's used as the top. In the ones I have I could just take it out, and it would be like a open top mag pouch. Also when I did this the mags wouldn't fall out. So don't worry about it not being able to hold your mags.

    Whatever you like. Seriously. In fact, I don't even really use mag pouches.

    Do you crawl on your belly a lot? If so, closed may be better.

    Grin uses his mouth to store extra primary mags. You do not want to know where he gets reloads for his secondary.


    But on a (more) serious note, I prefer open topped pouches, the ITW FAST mags are my dream pouch, but closed top "obnoxious" pouches can be switched to open top configuration.

    Look at 0:54

    Open is around here what most people use, and it defiantly shows in being able to reload in high stress situations that open is better as I have used both open and closed. But what I really want are the HSGI TACO pouches those things scream sexy, but cost a pretty penny too.
