Werkz Origin Double Mag Carrier

You can never have too much ammo
But you can find yourself with too little… especially when carrying a handgun in a IWB or OWB holster.
The good news is that you can easily add an ammo carrier to the same belt that holds your holster. Werkz sent us their Single and Double Origin Magazine carriers for pistol magazines. Check out the video below to see how they work.

How Workz describes the Origin Mag Carrier:

“The Werkz Origin mag carriers are a versatile pancake carrier that ships with 1.5″ belt loops for OWB (outside the waistband) wear. This platform is convertible between OWB and IWB (Inside the Waistband) configurations, and offers the ability to mount to MOLLE via the Snap Straps. You may order 1.75″ belt loops, C-hooks for IWB, or Snap Straps for MOLLE from the accessories section.”


At about $42 for a Double Mag Carrier and $38 for a single, the Werkz Origin Mag carrier isn’t the cheapest glock magazine carrier around. However, I have been carrying the Origin Double Mag Carrier for several months and have only positive things to say about it.
We get a lot of products to review at Gear Report and some just plain don’t work properly, fall apart, are way too finicky or delicate… but not the Werkz Mag Carrier. After months of carrying it probably 6 days a week as part of my EDC rig (review video here) it still looks pretty much brand new. No visible wear at all and it still functions perfectly. I had to tighten the screws that hold the belt clip in place about 2 months into using it. No other issues.

Well, except that the belt loops are the 1.5″ variety. No worries, as long as I use my leather Bigfoot Gunbelt. Switching to one of my rigger’s belts means leaving off the Werkz Mag carrier, as the belts are simply too wide. If you have a wider belt, order the optional wider belt loops.
In addition to belt loop options, you can order single or double Origin Mag Carriers in a wide variety of colors, magazine types and for right or left handed strong hand.

Gear Score
The Werkz Origin mag carrier is a simple, but effective item that would be at home on any pistol shooter's belt.
