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.

Reviewer: Nicholas S from GA  
Got these for my D3CR and didn't need any modifications or cuts. Mags sit firm and put. Works awesome.

Great for mag retention March 23, 2017
Reviewer: JB from The world  
If you hate messing with bungle cord and other securing methods, these are the way to go. I've used GI mags, Pmags, and lancer mags and all have great retention. Fills the space in my first spear integrated mag pouches perfectly.

Gravy ... March 12, 2017
Reviewer: William Adams from Gainesville, GA United States  
I took out a set of Haley Strategic inserts and put these in. Better retention and the Haley ones didn't have Velcro like the Esstac's  version. Get rid of the bungees on some of your pouchs and still have more than adequate retention.  Anything  made by Easstac is GTG so far for me. I love their gear.
