The Arbor Arms MARS (Magnet Assisted Retention System) Vertical Pistol Pouch was designed for fast clean mag changes while giving user options for retention, the pouch incorporates a molybdenum bar magnet under the non-slip rubberized fabric in the back face of the pouch resulting in excellent magazine retention. The MARS Vertical Pistol Pouch also comes with a removable flap to allow for more overt retention or the flap can be removed completely for cleaner open top configuration, another option is that the flap may be left installed but stowed to allow for a balance of both retention and speed if the end users retention needs change on the fly. For instance if you need to fast rope into an offset HLZ and then move to the target you may want to initially have flap retention but once on the ground you may want to quickly stow the flaps for faster access on the objective, the MARS Vertical Pistol Pouch allows you to do both. The flap height is also adjustable to accommodate different length magazines.

Very nicely made. Securely holds a 1911 mag with or without the flap. I use cable ties for a 100% secure attachment of this pouch to the Arbor Arms Ambush Belt.
