Sentry Rifle Double Mag Pouch: Quality and Multi-Purpose

Sentry has been making some great products and their Gunnar mag pouches are starting to be one of my favorite things they make. You can’t really have too many mag pouches if you own an AR or AK rifle. We place them on our vest and belt, but we often forget about all the other places a mag pouch could mount. I have thrown an AR pistol in my vehicle before as a self-defense tool because of the location I was driving that day.

I didn’t give a lot of thought to additional mags because 30 rounds of 5.56 is a lot of ammo, right? But we never know what the future will hold and in a worst-case scenario, 30 rounds may not be a lot of ammo if you’re a day’s drive from home. A plate carrier with a mag and pistol holders would be ideal, but you do have to draw the line somewhere. I wish I could, but I don’t have room to pack for WWIII every time I drive somewhere.

There is room for a backpack in my truck and maybe an extra gun beside the one I carry on me. I do carry a first aid kit in all my vehicles, but not a tactical vest. A backpack holds my medical supplies, water, some food, and other survival items. A double mag pouch attached to the outside of it is a perfect way to keep 60 more rounds of ammo for an emergency.

About the Sentry Double Mag Pouch

The Sentry Rifle Double Mag Pouch works with AR and AK mags, which is handy if you own both rifles. It uses a bungee pull tab to keep the mags in place but makes them easy to retrieve. It’s made of high-strength laminate nylon, so it won’t unravel or tear over time. The outside of the pouch is covered in laser-cut MOLLE/PALS for mounting additional items to the outside of the pouch.

The material is thick, but the pouches are still flexible. What stands out the most to me however is the attachment tabs on the back. A lot of companies use plastic tabs on the back because they hold the mag pouch in place better, but they are also a pain to put on. These tabs are flexible but have a cutout that keeps them from pulling back through the loop at the bottom. To unhook them, you just squeeze the bottom of the tab and pull it through the loop. To put it back on, push it through until the bottom tab pops out the smaller loop in the back of the pouch.

The AK mags were a little tight fitting because they are bigger than AR mags, but they still worked great. AR mags fit perfectly without issue. The tabs on the back are long enough to attach it to MOLLE but short enough to loop a combat belt through them. Having a multi-purpose mag pouch is nice because there are times when you may want to place the pouch on your belt instead of a vest or backpack.

Lifetime Warranty on All Mag Pouches

I don’t know how many mags pouches I have gone through over the years. Some wear out from normal wear and tear, but others have broken while in use. I was at a firearms instructor school once when the MOLLE tab on the back of my mag pouches broke while I was pulling a mag out of it. It stayed on my vest, but the top was loose and flopping around.

I didn’t think much about it back then because mag pouches were cheap. Today, a mag pouch is almost the price of a good holster. Because of this, a lifetime warranty means a lot to me. The warranty offered by Sentry does not require a warranty card or proof of purchase. If it has their tab on it, they will fix it. They do specify that normal wear and tear are not covered, but any defects will be replaced.

When I checked the company website, they had their email, mailing address, and phone number listed on the warranty page. This means a lot to me because so many other companies offer warranties, but you can’t find any contact info for them. I have used Sentry pouches in the past and never had any trouble with them. The Gunnar series of pouches appear to be built very well and ready for some heavy use.

Other Places To Use Double Mag Pouches

Besides vests, backpacks, and belts, there are lots of other places to mount mag pouches. The inside of rifle bags often have MOLLE lined panels for mounting magazine pouches and holsters too. I saw a tactical coat not long ago that had a liner with MOLLE across it so you could attach mag pouches and holsters to the inside of the coat.

Some companies make MOLLE covers that go over the seat of your truck so you can mount magazine pouches to the back of your seat. I like the idea of this but be careful where you place gun-related items in your vehicle. If people can see it, they may assume you have a gun in your car and break in to look for it. But there are plenty of other places you can mount MOLLE panels to in a truck or attach mag pouches or even handguns too. 

They make MOLLE panels that slide over the sun visor of your car, but they work in other places as well. The outside of the Gunnar mag pouch has MOLLE tabs on it so other items like flashlights, keys, knives, and more can be attached to them. There are plenty of places to keep mag pouches so your mags and ammo are close when you need them.

Need Some Mag Pouches?

It’s important to have quality pouches. There are other good brands out there, but Sentry is one of the most flexible and multi-purpose-built pouches I have seen. They come in several colors and Sentry makes other products like plate carriers, helmet covers, belts, and more. If you want a great product that sells for a reasonable price, I recommend giving them a try. I have never had any issues with Sentry products, and I use them on duty with my tactical gear. Add some pouches to your gear and keep the ammo and mags ready to go.
