The Crossbreed Confidant – Carry With Confidence

Crossbreed has been known as a hybrid holster company, but that seems to be changing. I’ve watched Crossbreed move towards all polymer designs with holsters like the Rogue. One of their latest additions to the all-polymer family is the Crossbreed Confidant. The Confident isn’t a holster but a magazine pouch, and it’s not your grandpa’s mag pouch. 

Inside the Confidant 

The Confidant is a single mag pouch designed to fit a wide spectrum of magazines. The polymer design includes a belt loop that fits up to 1.5-inch belts. The Confidant has a big wide mouth that narrows in the center to provide consistent and active retention. What makes the Confidant a bit different than most mag pouches is that it’s not designed for just one magazine or one type of magazine. 

It’s not quite universal, but pretty dang close. The Confidant is made from a front and rear polymer portion that’s held together by an elastic band on each side. The band stretches and shrinks in accordance with the magazine inserted into the Confidant. This allows it to fit most single-stack and double-stack magazines while retaining them rather well.

When you insert a magazine into the pouch, it expands and opens as it meets resistance. It’s stiff to slide larger magazines in, but never difficult. The Confidant fits most common magazines without a problem. However, larger double stack 45 magazines and super small .22LR or .32 ACP mags aren’t going to work. The double stack 45 mags are too big, and the subcaliber is too small. It also won’t work with magazines that have thumb pulls on the sides of the magazines, like the EZ series from S&W. 

Reloading With Style 

I’ve been packing it with my SIG P365 and a spare magazine. It drops into the mag pouch with ease and wears easily. The Confidant is not the smallest mag pouch, but it conceals just fine. Retrieving magazines is easy, and while the retention is pretty darn tight, I have no problems retrieving the magazine and slamming it home. 

Super short mags are tougher to retrieve than larger mags. Magazines like the 10-round P365 sit very low in the pouch. It will carry them fine, but it’s tougher to retrieve the short magazines in a hurry. 

The mag pouch fits tight to the belt, and it’s aggressively hooked upwards. This ensures the mag pouch never leaves your belt when retrieving your magazine in a hurry. It also holds the pouch fairly tight to my belt and prevents it from sliding without a real dedicated push and press. 

The design allows it to be ambidextrous. It’s something you can carry your way, regardless of which way that is. 

The Downsides to the Confidant 

The main downside will be its size. To make it quasi-universal means making it wider than most. It’s wider but still fairly flat. It certainly won’t threaten concealment, and it doesn’t poke or prod. Anytime that promises to do so much, you have to make some generous allotments to size and weight. 

Carrying With Confidence and the Confidant 

The Confidant is perfect for someone like me who might be carrying a P365 one week but then testing a new concealed carry gun next week. This will end my need to find extra mag pouches to swap between a 9mm 1911 to something like the Arex Delta series or pistols. It makes life simpler and can be used for concealed carry, range training, and even competition with relative ease. 

The Confidant can be found here, and it’s worth a look if you need to pack a spare.
