Made of high-impact-resistant polymer, the FASTmag is tough— we set it on concrete and drove a Tundra truck over it. A couple of tabs bent slightly, but they were easily pressed back into position, with no loss of structural integrity or performance. Designed to bend, not break, the anti-fragmentation properties keep it together, even when hit by a bullet. A semi-rigid strap makes for user-adjustable tension. We mounted it upside down with a full mag and did 100 side-straddle hops, and the mag didn’t budge a hair. Despite solid mag retention, mag retrieval is smooth. It mounts on a belt or MOLLE/PALS, up or down, and can be double stacked with other mag pouches (FASTmag or other) using the attachment slots.
