What's the best way to carry Tipx mags?

I recently won an auction for a Tipx with ten 7-round mags. What do you guys recommend for carrying them on the field? I'd like it to work with the rig seen below. I can shift things around or stack them as needed. My goal is to pack the mags into a compact pouch for use as a backup with the option to run the Tipx as a primary from time to time.

I like the Tuff inline mag pouches for the 7rders. I've seen people using them with 12rd and Zetas as well. Nice, compact package and I believe available in 3, 5, 6, and 8 mag sizes.

A standard M4 pouch will double stack two 7-rounders while still keeping them loose enough to pull free. After trying loads of different types, I always go back to them.

These are also pretty great: https://www.ebairsoft.com/molle-pisto...ch-p-3290.html
Holds 5, side-by-side. Gave one to a teammate to try, now he has a belt full of them!

Thanks guys. So it sounds like I can either double stack the mags in my existing pouches or I can go with something designed for Glock 17 magazines.

It sounds like this is going to be the best way to go until I get around to picking up a few zetamags.

I used milsig fazmag stacked, great for 7 and 12round but is bad for zeta.
The zeta will falls when running and I lost 2 doing so.

I bought some kydex pouch from K2 that hold 2 but you could stack a single in the middle.

I now see the TMC SG 2.0 Pistol Magazine Carrier for single mag.

Good to know. I used to run with Fazmags when I had my T8. I was considering getting a few when I get around to picking up some zetas. Now, not so much. Thanks for saving me an expensive lesson.

I use and love my fazmags. Haven't had any issues with them except the rubber that holds it to the Molle web gets strained with the amount of use it got on my #1 mag (this was after years though). I used a downward pull the release the mag. I just rotate them around to relieve that.


if you wish to try it without high expense. Ebay search "fast Mag". I believe they are the small.
