Looks good. What's the story with the bottom 2" webbing? Is it adjustable for mag height or just secured in place?

Looks great. I live how you handled the drainage issue with the webbing at the bottom.

What's the rationale behind having an open bottom?
In my experience, there are way too many negatives and I can't really see any positive sides to it.. IMO drainage (for water) is a non-issue, however, getting the the mag covered in mud, dirt and snow for sure is.

But it is a clean looking product, a bit too tall for my liking (I prefer 5" for pouches like this), but then again I'm really picky when it comes to stuff ;)

Looks good.  It seems like using that design with the webbing at the bottom would cut down on production time a good bit.  How did you terminate the front webbing?  It almost looks like webbing wrapped in a think layer of fabric.

My initial reaction is that I like the design with the 3 inch webbing at the bottom. 

Kudos on a very clean construction and very clean photos.

@TwoWayTrauma: The webbing is a two inch webbing and is folded under the binding tape of the front portion of the pouch.

It  is easy to make that way, several good customers of mine tested these in the sandbox and had no issues concerning too much dirt.

I however understand that mud could go into the bottom, but experienced no problems so far.

I've found that the biggest problem with open top mag pouches is that there isn't enough drainage for debris. Once a mag is out, they tend to scoop up what is on the ground making it a pain in the ass to put mags back. In the real world I stow empty mags back in pouches. I don't LOVE how open the bottom is, but I'd use that pouch.

I've done some mag pouches with the webbing on the bottom. I got the idea from specter gear I think...I gave an infantry friend of mine a few of the pouches to test for me and he said the open bottom caught too much mud, pine needles, etc...

Your pouch looks really great, though. Nice job!
