Esstac 556 KYWI (pronounced "kiwi")


by Sean
Esstac Shingle Mag Pouch with KYWI - I like that these mag pouches bridge the gap between hard plastic and soft/ cloth mag pouches. The retention is perfect. I prefer open top mag pouches to any other type because when you need more ammo you REALLY need more ammo. Fumbling with a velcro flap or even a bungee can be out of the question for the first 4 mags at a minimum. View More SKD Staff Picks


Don't Like bungee topped magazine pouches? Prefer an open topped pouch for rapid magazine changes? Then these new user-installed Kydex upgrades for the Esstac Wedge magazine pouches and Boar series chest rigs are for you.

The Esstac KYWI (Kydex Wedge Insert) allows you to have the option of swapping out all your existing Esstac bungee retention inserts with a quick open topped friction retention design, or swap out just a few for quicker access while leaving the rest of the mags with the added security of the bungee topped inserts. Magazines in the Kydex have enough compression against them to hold the magazines in place even when the pouch is upside down yet with a quick pull on the magazine they release for speedy deployment.

The spring loaded nature of these Kydex inserts keep the mouth of the Magazine pocket fully open for ease of magazine reinsertion yet hold the mags tight under compression. The apex of the KYWI that contacts the magazine sits above the Mag catch bump when the magazine is in place, so the mags "click" into place.

These will work with all Boar series chest rigs and Wedge pouches in 5.56. They are compatible with Pmags, USGI, Orilite, Thermold and Lancer magazines as well as most other 5.56 AR-15/M4/M16 type magazines. Aluminum and steel magazines may need sharp edges chamfered to alleviate excessive wear to the Kydex.

Awesome January 19, 2017
Reviewer: Stephen Stamas from Upper Montclair, NJ United States  
Great to add to any m4 pouch or built in mag pouch. If you don't want to use the awful bungees this is a great alternative.

Awesome accessory January 10, 2017
Reviewer: Brian from NJ  
Fit perfectly in my Haley chest rig. Pmags and old reliable gi mags stay in well. Makes life easier so much easier when loading up. Would definitely recommend.

Just what I needed January 6, 2017
Reviewer: lyle johnson from Arlington, WA United States  
Been looking at upgrading my mag pouches sorry a while. Didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on the taco pouches. I found these while watching a youtube vidoe. I have to say, they are totally worth it. Great quality product. Quick shipping to. Recieved them a day early!!

Arrived in the mail today. Inserted them in my condor mag pouches (3) and they fit just fine. Retention is rock solid. Can't beat it for the price. Quality made.
