Thanks guys, I'm glad you like the review.
For those that ordered one, let me know what you think when you get yours.
I'm planning on getting one for my AR15 too.
I just got an email from UW Gear and they now have credit card and Paypal payment enabled on their website.
Very nice I have canvas and a HD sewing machine,I can make damn near anything imperfectly

Would be sweet if they made one for 20 rd M1A mags.
After watching MA's quality review and checking out UW Gear's website I ordered a 7.62 bandoleer in standard Coyote Brown (before they had online purchase option).
Timeline of transaction:
4.10 sent USPSMO
4.13 email from UWGear "We received your payment today. We are trying to keep our production times under a week and a half, and will begin work on it as soon as possible. Occasionally circumstances may arise that cause that to be longer."
4.25 package at Post Office
First impression: fast turnaround for a quality made product. Craft is top notch, materials appear rugged and stitching looks clean and strong.
I've been wearing it with three full ((10))'s since I got home (couple hours). It is not heavy, very comfortable and concealable. The mags fit well, the cover locks securely and is easy to open.
So far I'm very happy I picked it up. Look forward to wearing it next time I take the 7.62's out. If I continue to like it as much as I anticipate, I may pick one up for the 5.45.
Will get some pics of it later in week when I have more time.
I also have about 1,000 rounds of 5.56 ammo on stripper clips loaded in the old Vietnam era "cloth" stripper clip bandoleers stored inside steel ammo cans ready to go as my "ready reserve." The rest of my 5.56 ammo (several thousand more rounds) are loose packed in steel ammo cans.
Sturmgewehre, I definitely like the closures on that bandoleer much better than velcro for the same reasons. However, that type of closure wasn't available 20 years ago when I got my bandoleers from Eagle. There are pros and cons to the six pouches of the Eagle carriers. More magazines, but also much more bulkier.
As a civilian these days, do I need much more than three 30 round mags on my person, plus what's in the gun? Probably not. And lightweight and streamlined is where it's at!
I'll definitely look into maybe getting one from UW Gear. Thanks for the video review!
