One of the common mechanics in Melbourne Nerf groups is the utility of "grenades", an ammo type that can be thrown or launched, which are usually designed and used to combat shields. They also often have special abilities if they directly hit a player. With the creation of shields for MLF, the continuing importance of grenades in MHvZ and the increasing usage of Demolisher rockets and other thrown ammo in my own games, I decided to get some dedicated grenade pouches to allow easier and faster access to any grenades I'm carrying. Enter the MazoFactory Grenade Pouch (HSG1-R2).
The Mazofactory HSG1 has been designed specifically to hold either a Demo rocket or a Vortex Pocket Howler, though could easily be used for other similar sized objects.
I would argue that perhaps the pouch should be a little looser - given the squishy nature of the rear of a Demo rocket, it is much harder to grab and pull the rear of it with significant force. The grip position required also forces a grip shift before loading the rocket into a blaster, as most rocket blasters take rockets on a rocket post. Smaller objects like Vortex Pocket Howlers would still be easily secured with the shock cord.
Alternatively, a pouch that holds a Demo rocket pointing up would also make life a lot easier, as grabbing and pulling the rather rigid head is far easier. It would also make reloading a little bit faster and more natural.
It should be noted though that like with a lot of other Mazofactory products, significant use loosens the pouch somewhat. This is particularly useful for Demo rockets, which remain secure but become a little easier to yank out quickly.
Grenade pouches are in my mind far less important than clip/mag pouches, as grenades are a special use ammo type and are simply thrown, or directly loaded onto a blaster to be fired, and are far easier to normally carry. Unless you're playing sock ninja or similar, you'll probably be using throwables far, far less than you'll be switching clips/mags. Given their significantly smaller size compared to clips/mags as well as being squishable, it's a lot easier to carry spare grenades than it is clips/mags without tactical gear, whether it be in a pocket, squished somewhere on your blaster or even squished in one of your hands. Tactical gear is highly preferable for clips/mags as it is highly beneficial for them to be lined up properly for ease and consistency of reloading, as well as keeping track of which ones still have ammo. Additionally clips/mags of reasonable capacity can be very difficult to carry in significant number without appropriate tactical gear.
Mazofactory grenade pouches cost $15 each, which is probably more than most people would pay for something that holds a single grenade. Unless you're going for the tactical look or use grenades a lot, I'd say you could probably get away with stuffing them in your pocket or something. I personally like these separate grenade pouches as I find the grenades like to bounce out of dump pouches when running, and especially when I'm not using clip (mag) system blasters, use the dump pouch for loose darts.
