View Full Version : Looking for flashbang/DD Pouch
Does anyone here have a suggestion for a good quality single flashbang pouch? I looked at Tactical Tailor, HSGI, and several others (how good is Specter Gear?). The OSOE stuff looks perfect, but last I heard its near impossible to find his gear these days. At the last training I went to, it was discussed that carrying one in an empty mag pouch wasn't a good idea, and a dedicated pouch was the way to go. I'd like to get a feel for what others are using.
In the interest of specificity, this is for SWAT, not .mil, I'd prefer OD or ranger green with a fastex closure, and it will be mounted to my split front LB vest (not my choice, but the budget is tight).
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
What bangs are you tossing? I have worked with a few different ones and some are a bit larger or smaller than average which may make certain pouches better or worse.
As far as mil issued bangs I am using a triple TAG bang panel. The size is a little looser than I would find optimal, but it is ok as far as size goes. The triple could do for some stitching between bang pockets as it sags a bit, but that probably won't mean much to you if you are using singles.
I also use the TAG pouch, and I like it a lot. The Fastex buckle is attached with elastic which ensures a snug fit everytime with no loose ends.
The chickenhawk pouch is also pretty nice. It only uses one column of MOLLE, which is nice for saving space. The nylon also covers higher on the body of the bang.
Somehow I thought you guys would have some imput.
F2S- I'm using Deftec 25's and Multiports.
I might just go with the double. You never know if you'll need 2.
Jeff- Where can I find this "chickenhawk" of which you speak?
Thanks for the info guys!
I have Eagle singles in various colors and triples in Coyote Brown.
I would look in SORD pouches, they are the best i have seen so far for flashbang pouches.
I am actually starting to really like their stuff. they have details in their designs that make so much sense, right now i think their gear is pretty hard to beat.
