Our Wilderness ZipLoader12 is a belt-mounted 12-gauge shotshell carrier that uses our signature wraparound quick-detach belt loops. It can be quickly put on or removed without needing to remove the belt. A hybrid of both our Zip Slide Holster and our stretchable ammunition and battery carriers, the ZipLoader uses our super-tough XHD (Extra-Heavy-Duty) elastic webbing. It carries 6 shotshells ready for action. The wraparound belt loops are solidly secured by hook and loop fasteners on the side as well as hook-and-loop security tabs that wrap slightly over top. This ensures rock solid support even when inserting or removing shells.
When continually "fed" from our Slimline Dump Pouch filled with shells, the ZL is an effective, high-volume shell carrier system for both tactical shotgun classes and hunting in the field. While the dump pouch itself may be loaded from, the carrier ensures immediate and correct orientation of the shotshells in the hand without looking.
We like to keep the center four loops filled with low-recoil buckshot, while keeping the two end loops filled with slugs because they are easiest positions to identify under stress or by feel in the dark.
