With so many caliber strips available and only 3 size pouches to choose from, not every strip of reloads will fit exactly. The small pouch holding 2 strips of .38 spl had a lot of unused leftover space in the bottom of it, which made the pouch seem "top heavy" when carried upright in the pocket.
I found that when carried in a loose shirt pocket, the pouch would work itself upside down by the end of the day, and I would have to flip it over to efficiently remove a loaded strip. In a situation where it might be needed in a hurry, I was concerned that I might loose precious time fumbling to find the flap to open it.
Fortunately, for me, there was enough empty room in my selected caliber/pouch combination to drop a couple of extra loose rounds in the bottom below the strips, which gave the pouch a little more bottom weight and a less "floppy" feeling .
This solution probably will not work with every caliber, and with certain pouch/caliber combinations the fit will have less gaps, making this quick fix not necessary.... On the other hand, if you are already carrying the pouch and strips anyway, then having a few EXTRA rounds for backup isn't a bad thing.
If your selected pouch/caliber combination has too much unused space and is causing you an indexing problem, but you don't have enough extra room to carry the spare loose rounds.....I might suggest cutting a small piece of wood, or even glueing together an appropriate size block of cardboard to fill the void. This should go a long way towards eliminating that squishy-bottom/heavy-top feeling. Mark in Michigan on Apr 11th 2017
I purchased this pouch to compliment my S&W 640 that I carry off-duty. I also purchased 2 of the 8 round quick strips for 357 Magnum. The pouch does exactly what it is designed for. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone who chooses to carry a revolver for off-duty or concealed carry. Sean V. on Mar 6th 2017
The Tuff Quickstrip Pouch carries Quickstrips (two 8-rounders, in my case) efficiently and discretely. I carry mine strong-side at or ahead of my right front pocket for easy access. AB, Alabama, USA on Jan 25th 2017
Nice pouch. I only problem is that when you insert 2 full strips of 410, you can barely close the flap. Ephenway on Jan 8th 2017
Understanding how the pouch works, you realize that it is a great asset to your revolver carry gear.
Very well made, quality all the way. ScottM on Dec 29th 2016
Great case, holds 3 s@w bodyguard 6 rounds standing straight up. Not what its made for but works great. John on Nov 22nd 2016
Excellent product. Am also buying more. Unknown on Nov 15th 2016
Light weight, be prepared to catch the strip once the Velcro is pulled free. Unknown on Nov 8th 2016
Good workmanship, but the 5-rd strips fit a lot tighter then 7-rd strips fit in a 7-rd TUFF pouch I have. Unknown on Nov 1st 2016
The #2 (medium) model 7907 Tactical Pouch holds my 6 round .38/.357 Speedstrips just fine. In the future I will try the Quickstrips as I expand my usage. Unknown on Aug 10th 2016
I ordered my pouch along with the high speed Quickstrip product and am beyond impressed with the quality and all around versatility of this pouch when it comes to holding my two five round orange Quickstrips for my new .38 Airweight revolver. If you have the Quickstrips or are in the market for such, I highly recommend them... BUT, don't forget your pouch! Happy and safe shooting! The Bacon Eater on Apr 6th 2016
Medium pouch for 2-5 rd strips of 38 spcl is really too small for 10 rds plus the two strips. Not adequate space for 1 1/2 inch wide belt. Causes it to have less Velcro to hold on belt. Wish I had ordered the larger one. I'll us it for awhile. Just my out of the box initial impression. Dr. M.E. Jackson on Mar 4th 2016
Got the pouch along with the quickstrips for a 22 mag. Everything fits real nice. Wraps onto your belt quick and easy. Will order more for different guns. Mike on Feb 18th 2016
i am not happy with this product.
i am using it to hold 2X 6 rounds of 38 special, which it said the medium size holds well. it does not at all.
it barely wraps around the belt and hold the rounds.
then when i open the pouch the rounds came flying out, every time lawrence dejoseph on Jan 22nd 2016
Great product; holds two .38 caliber, five round quick strips perfectly and velcros right to your belt for easy access. Unknown on Dec 27th 2015
It has two open bottomed dividers to keep your loaded Tuff Strips separate and handy. They come in three sizes, I have one for a six shooter and one for two ten strips of 22 WMR, which is a little bigger. Completely conceals the spare ammunition from view and looks like a nylon wallet Gary B on Dec 13th 2015
