I am looking for a compact (when deployed) dump pouch. Everything I have seen at matches and most of what I can find online look enormous when deployed. I don't need the bulk or the swaying momentum as I move around. I just need the ability to stow 2 or 3 AR mags tops for stages that require mag retention.

Anyone using something they like?

Was this in relation to the match you did?

The only dump pouch I've spent time with is an older Emdom, but it's far from compact and it does not stow away at all.

Both mine are First Spear.  They pack up into something about the size of a 2x4 MOLLE row, and can easily hold what you're asking about.  Not to mention, it has a drawstring for the opening.

Yup, we had a stage where I needed to do a tactical reload and stow the mag rather than drop it. I though I could get away with just stuffing the mag back into its pouch. In the heat of the moment it required too much precision and added time to my run.

My issue with all the dump pouches I saw at the match is they were they were all these enormous sacks flopping off of people's battle belts taking up real estate on their waists. With just a mag or two in them they swayed and flopped all over. I would prefer something compact when stowed and trim when deployed in the few cases I need it. The compact  piece is critical  since I don't run a battle belt concept, more of a minimalist 2 piece belt system along the lines of what you describe in your recent The Tactical Belt article https://www.everydaymarksman.co/equipment/tactical-belt/  .

Yeah, gotcha. That's the exact reason I stopped using one, I didn't like the thing flopping around on me. I know a lot of guys like the Maxpedition Rollypolly that compresses down. Were I to go this route again, I'd probably get the Tactical Tailor Fight Light roll-up dump pouch.

That said, another option you can consider is a decent set of ACU-cut cargo pants. Drop the spent mag in the big leg pocket and away you go. Yet another one, the British method and one that I've used in classes, works well with battle belts or any kind of load bearing harness. If you're wearing any kind of jacket/smock/shirt that the belt cinches around, then drop the spent mag down the front of the jacket. Obviously, this doesn't work with chest rigs.

Would that be their SSE Pouch?

I believe so.

Looks like I am checking out the Maxpedition Rollypolly MM Folding Dump Pouch, First Spears SSE Pouch, and Tactical Tailor Fight Light roll-up dump pouch. Thanks for your help!

If you look between the rifle taco and the first aid kit on the left side of the belt, that's what the First Spear pouch looks like compressed for storage.

That's a nice looking setup. Viper IFAK? I've been eyeballing one forever, but just grabbed the BFG mini version for the tac belt article. From the look of it, the FirstSpear pouch probably rolls up tighter than the Tactical Tailor one.

Viper IFAK with Chinook Medical components.  My other belt has a similar but larger pouch and sleeve from British Tactical, but the 6 o'clock position & side pull features are still in play.   Max Velocity's Fight Light concepts influenced this one, but I've since replaced the belt mounted pistol tacos.

That is tiny! The belt gives much better perspective than the stock photos, thanks for sharing this.

I'll get a photo of it expanded if you'd like.

Here you go.  The first image is just the open pouch against the same belt for perspective.

I wear Duluth Trading Company Firehose cargo pants. They are comfortable, tough, and have lots of pockets. The flaps have velcro where you can tuck them inside the pocket and stay there. They make for decent dump pockets. Not everything needs to be specialized and "tactical".
