Tactical Tailor



SWANSBORO, North Carolina – Feb. 25, 2016 – High Speed Gear® continues to innovate by developing new and improved ways to meet the highly diverse and specialized needs of our customers. Many of our products are inspired by direct feedback from our military, law enforcement, recreational and competitive customers. With that in mind, High Speed Gear® is proud to release its Multi-Access Communications (MAC) TACO®.


Originally designed as the issued pouch for a large communications partner, the versatile MAC TACO® uses our popular Soft TACO® technology and durable webbing in multiple sizes to create a secure but easily accessible storage solution for a wide variety of military and law enforcement personal communication devices. An over-the-top bungee retention tab provides additional security, and the open-top design and 2.5” side openings offer constant access to most controls without removing the device. The MOLLE version includes our HSGI® Clips and the belt-mounted version attaches easily to belts up to 2” with Velcro® One-Wrap®.


Made 100% in the USA, Battle Proven Tactical Nylon Gear™.

The MAC TACO® is available now.

    Does anyone know how well this will fit a Baofeng UV-5R with an extended battery?

    • Ed says:

      This may or may not help- I can’t speak to this pouch, but the Handcuff Taco fits the UV-5R like a glove with the OEM battery.

    I like the concept and it looks like it would be a useful pouch. Id be interested in one if it had something different to secure the radio in the pouch. If you run a radio with an attached handmike, the bungee strap is going to be a pain to use. You’d either have to remove it, hold it off to the side while you insert/remove radio (so it doesn’t hang up on the mile cable), or unscrew the antenna everytime. It would’ve been better if the strap came over the top and secured to the front like the First Spear/Eagle/etc radio pouches.

      Agreed, that is the first thing I noticed on this as well. I have this problem now and it is doable, but a pain to move into the pouch, with a side mounted remote speaker mic connection. Personally I would love to see some kydex pouches (like the 1110 Tourniquet pouch) for radios. Lightweight and low profile.

    A picture with the radio from the other side would be helpful!

    Just to see if the connection ports for a headset would be open…

    If anyone from HSGI reads this 🙂

    Need pics of this holding a real 152 or 148 with actual side cables attached.

    • d says:

      I don’t think I’d use this for the 152 or 148. The XTS pictured is considerably shorter than those.

      The 152 is a great radio, but it’s not easy to fit it into a pouch, especially with the KDU attached.

      • Jon, OPT says:

        I know, I carried the 152 with KDU in combat. I had a hunch this was significantly smaller, thanks for the reply. If Bruce is reading this any plans for a large mil version.

        • d says:

          I know you did, Jon. Just making conversation.

          • SSD says:

            How many names are you going to use?

            • d says:

              That’s a weird question. I always just use “d” here. Can you hit me up via my email and let me know what we’re talking about?

          • Jon, OPT says:

            No worries, I didn’t mean to come off as being short, the 152 is used a lot in that configuration these days, only a couple companies have hit it correctly on pouch build. I know HSGI can do it, and I’m betting they can do it better than what exists on the market.
