Even in the modern era of semi-automatic pistol dominance, there are plenty of concealed carriers who still prefer a wheelgun, and these proud holdouts understand well the necessity of carrying spare ammunition in case a reload is needed. The JOX Loader Pouch is a small Kydex speedloader holster that allows fans of the revolver to carry an extra cylinder’s worth of cartridges right on their belts. Low profile and easy to attach, the JOX holds the speedloader above the beltline for maximum concealment. Available in several different configurations to accommodate many of the most popular short- and long-knob speedloader designs, the JOX Loader Pouch is offered for three different belt widths (1¼", 1½" and 1¾"). Price: $43. Contact: JOX Loader Pouches (215) 873-1102; joxloaderpouches.com.
