There is nearly an endless supply of cloth magazine pouches in the market. If you're looking for something different I would keep reading. The Gear 4 Grunts RAMP (Rapid Access Magazine Pod) is a polymer magazine "pouch." Instead of utilizing cloth materials you have a polymer molded "pod." Similar to how you have a molded kydex holster. Instead of cloth which doesn't have as tight of tolerances and uses some kind of strap to cinch the magazine down a polymer molded pod is made to the exact dimensions of the magazine. This allows the pod to be lightweight, low profile and for the magazine to click into place.

Notable features:
-High strength Military grade polymer
-Lightweight
-Hold variety of aftermarket magazines such as PMAGs, etc.
-MOLLE / PALS compatible
-Made in USA
-$26.95 MSRP

The pod resembles the same texture as a PMAG, very visually appealing

The RAMP is MOLLE / PALS compatible. Will attach any compatible plate carrier, battle belt, etc. Installs in seconds

No straps, bungee chord or tabs needed. The magazine simple clicks into place utilizing the tab on the magazine. Shown here with a PMAG

The RAMP is essentially a magwell receiver, notice the tab deep inside

There are different model pods available for different style of magazines although I was able to comfortably fit quite a few models into this pod.

RAMP easily installs on any rig you have, shown here on a S.O.Tech Contoured Padded Pistol Belt

The RAMP is designed to be used in an updside down configuration and yes the magazine is in there tight and secure

Unfortunately if you use the RAMP in a rightside up configuration the magazine is now backwards for right handed shooters. If you're a lefty the RAMP works rightside up but won't work upside down. The magazine would face the wrong side when drawing. Not a huge ordeal but it will come down to personal preference

The RAMP pod is pretty unique, it doesn't use any sewn parts and also has no moving parts as compared to such as an ITW FastMag. Compared to Kydex solutions this pod is much smaller and takes less real estate. It's also (on average) a few bucks cheaper. Not to mention MOLLE / PALS compatible. If you're looking for a lightweight "high speed" magazine carrier, give this a shot. It's solid piece of kit.

Pros:
-Lightweight
-Low profile
-Compatible with various magazines
-Available in multiple colors, OD, Black, FDE, ATACs

Cons:
-Not ambidextrous
