    The list of options is nearly endless. Just about everybody makes something like that.

    Is there a particular characteristic you're looking for to narrow down the recommendations? Do you prefer leather or kydex? Open top or closed?

    Some leather options

    I carry 2 .45ACP 1911 mags offhand in a pair of BladeTech Eclipse pouches that I setup as twins; it curves much more than a dual pouch. Retention is adjustable with a hairdryer.

    That said, BladeTech's warranty policy is disappointing, and I would lean towards CompTac.

    I would still buy two single pouches and join them on a curve, or buy the CompTac that comes that way, and is much more robust.

    Bianchi has a companion for the UM84/M11 holster that uses a similar spring clip that is very sure.
    They make both a single stack or a double stack.

    Really, there are a zillion ways to tie the knot on this. And, you are like as not to buy several in finding the right one for your needs.

    Thanks for the info, I'm thinking budget Kydex. I have been using cordura folding knife sheaths with a velcro strap, they work ok just lookin to upgrade. I'm a little concerned about Kydex retention on a 1911 mag with no strap.

    I have a number of them, i think the blackhawk double and single carriers worked pretty well. I also got some nylon quad carriers off Amazon. As stated above, the options are nearly endless.

    The late Paul Gomez on Choosing Carry Gear. Skip to the the 7:17 mark for his comments on mag pouches.

    Depending on your belt, and how you wear it, I have seen comments from folks that have pulled their clip on mag pouch off the belt, with the mag, when trying to do a mag change.

    I had never heard of Paul Gomez. . . but now I'm going to look for more. That was a great Carry Gear 101; I'll certainly be sharing it with a few new shooters.
