The various forms of HSGIâ€™s Taco, arguably the most versatile mag pouch on the market, are beginning to spread abroad. A prominent coalition partner just bought a couple thousand or more of them for one of their special operations units and HSGI recently shipped a bunch off to the US Border Patrol to use on duty. Congratulations Gene, and all of HSGI â€” not for the big sale, but for building something so effective and reliable it is an honest asset to the boys and girls on the ground.
If youâ€™ve been living under a rock and have never heard of it, the High Speed Gear Inc. Taco is a magazine pouch with shock cord laces that will secure just about any magazine into place. You can literally use it for everything from PMAGs to AKs, FALs to M14s, and never have to adjust your rig or switch out pockets (there are Tacos out there for the Barrett and .338 Lapua, too). There are Taco pouches, double Taco pouches, combo Tacos with for rifle and pistol mags (or flashlights or multi-tools or whatever). They’ve also added adapters to the line, allowing you to mount the Tacos on belts, with a paddle, to MOLLE or whatever. You can get them in Black, Smoke Green, Coyote, Khaki, the various Gucciflages and soon, the new ATACS. Theyâ€™ve even made â€˜em in Pink and Black.
