If you’re a Glock owner you’ve likely looked at one of the many extended magazines available on the market and wondered how do I carry this? Plenty of companies make extended Glock magazines, including Glock, ETS, Magpul, KCI, and more I’d probably missing. A normal mag pouch is cut a bit too short for most and makes them susceptible to falling out, so I connected with my friend Jason at Warlord Applications and the Party Pouch was born. The Party Pouch comes in two flavors, the IWB and now he’s released an OWB model.
I initially approached Warlord Applications for a holster and mag pouch and the more we talked the more we explored the ability to carry an extended magazine in a concealed manner. This spawned the original Party Pouch IWB, and if you make something IWB you got to make an OWB option to.
The Party Pouch OWB
The Party Pouch OWB is made from kydex and is about twice as long as your average magazine pouch. It fits Glock OEM, ETS, Amend2, Magpul, KCI, and more magazines. It’s cut just low enough to carry a standard magazine as well as an extendo. Jason at Warlord Applications is pretty open to producing some interesting designs and while belt loops are my favorite he can do paddles, single clip IWB, and even Safariland attachments.
The Party Pouch fits tight to the body and disappears under your shirt. With an ETS magazine, I have 31 rounds of 9mm on tap if things get a little crazy. Let’s be clear if I’ve already chewed my way through a 17 or 15 round Glock magazine things are nice and crazy. 24, 31, or 33 rounds of 9mm doesn’t look so bad. There is also something to be said for this with a petite build. It’s hard to make horizontal room on a waist, but going up is easy enough. The Party Pouch allows you to carry basically two magazines worth of ammo in a lithe package.
Of course, if you are running a carbine or Polymer 80 that takes Glock magazines a good magazine carrier is a must-have. The Party Pouch is perfect for running carbines as well as concealed extended magazines.
The Party Pouch OWB clings tightly to the body and makes it easy to conceal underneath nothing more than a simple t-shirt. Hiding a large magazine really has never been easier. The magazine is positioned far enough off the body to allow it to be easily grabbed and put into play. It does take some practice to get used to an extended magazine clearing the longer carrier, but the difference isn’t dramatic.
The pouch absolutely disappears under a shirt and carrying it during the day isn’t uncomfortable. In the right position, it pokes a little, but just a little. Even in a vehicle, the pouch is easy to wear and even easy to draw from. Honestly drawing the extended magazine in a vehicle is easier than drawing a normal magazine from a magazine pouch. It’s longer and easier to reach, especially if you have to go across the body.
There is certainly something to be said about having 30 or so rounds on tap, especially in a concealed fashion. The extra ammo is always nice. This carrier isn’t for everyone’s EDC setup, but it certainly adds another tool to the box for concealed carry.
