5.11 Stacked Mag Pouches
DO NOT BUY THESE POUCHES!! At least not right now. In March 2012 I ordered two stacked double and two stacked single mag pouches. The doubles are supposed to hold 4 mags and the singles are supposed to hold 2 mags each. I know that 5.11 is quality gear so I did not read any reviews on these pouches. My mistake. When I got them in the mail (after waiting several weeks) the pouches would not hold the advertised number of mags. I could not get two mags into each pouch. In other words, they were not 'stacked' like they were supposed to be. I did a little research and found other people were having the same problem. So I called 5.11 directly and was told that the pouches were being made too small. The lady I spoke to only offered one solution - return them. She did not say that the problem was being corrected or anything else. They were aware of it, but that's all. She said you can still use them as a single mag pouch, or return them. Well, if I wanted a single mag pouch I would have ordered one. But that's not what I ordered and not what I paid for. I don't know if this problem will be corrected or not, like I said, she didn't sound too concerned. I guess that is what you get in the way of quality control when you outsource to CHINA! I'll still buy 5.11 boots and pants, like I have for years, but I don't think I'll be buying anymore of their tactical nylon. At least not for awhile. I sent them back to US Cav and ordered some T. A. G. pouches. I haven't received them yet, but I'll be posting a review as soon as I do get them. And they are made in AMERICA! By the way, US Cav service was outstanding! Except for one thing, I don't think I should be required to pay for the postage. It's not my fault the product was defective.
