    I needed a way to hold, transport and store my extra AK47 mags. I picked up a Utilizigns Utility Bandolier. It was only $16.99. It holds 5 mags and has a webbing to sling over your shoulder. It can roll up be compact to stash in your range bag. The stitching is solid and the the quality is evident in the construction. Here are some pics. Don't mind the orange ak mags. Its my range mag.

    It looks like green aluminum foil...or some 80's clothing. Is it really shiny in person?

    Its made out of 400 Denier milspec nylon. The flash made it more shiny. It's lightweight and smooth.

    The GI's back in the day had bandoliers for there M1. These bandoliers are lighter and have more functions. They can carry Ak, ar, fal and Glock 33rd mags and even first aide supplies.

    I have not seem any gear maker that have something like this. Clean and simple means to have magazines at your disposal. Highly functional piece of gear.

    The Osoe is a chest rig. This is a refill bandolier. Totally different IMO.

    It looks like you got yourself a very useful piece of gear at a bargain. It's designed to hold anything that fits in the pockets neatly and readily accessible. Bottom line, it simply does what you want it to do, hold extra magazines.Good purchase.:thumbup:
