SHOT 2015: Wilder Tactical

Wilder Tactical’s new “Evolution series” has some interesting new designs they are applying to magazine pouches, holsters, and tourniquet holders.

These pouches use a clamshell style design held together with shock cord (similar to the Taco pouches) but using Kydex instead of nylon.  The shock cord weaves through the two halves of the pouch and is secured with a cord lock.


The result is a rigid but adjustable pouch that can hold magazines or tourniquets of different sizes.  They also make a holster which can hold similarly sized handguns.

As a shooting instructor I like to switch up different guns in different classes.  The Wilder mag pouches should be able to hold mags for most of the pistols  I might use in any given class.


Pouches are available with belt clips and can be adapted for Tech-Lock, Molle-Lock, and other popular attachment designs.


The build quality is excellent and Josh Wilder was a great guy to talk to.  I picked up some of his magazine pouches and the TQ pouch, and will be testing them out on the range.
