Esstac 762 KYWI (pronounced "kiwi")

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 7.62. They are compatible with M14, FAL, SR-25, DPMS, Pmag magazines. Steel magazines may need sharp edges chamfered to alleviate excessive wear to the Kydex.

762x54..... not 7.62x39 August 3, 2013
Reviewer: erik deshane from Owasso, OK United States  
the m4 kiwi's seem to hold ak mags with the same retention

I guess these may be necessary for an 7.62x54 /.308 magazine.

Works well January 11, 2013
Reviewer: Josh from PA United States  
Did some shake testing with them seem to work well. I like the product so far. Have not had the opportunity to run my rig with them yet but I think I will work out.

Work Great Better than FastMags and Tacos May 9, 2012
Reviewer: Broken Sailor from Prepared not Scared in the USA  
Love this concept.  It was a choice between these or Fast Mags, and I made the right choice.  Keeps me in Multi-Cam but the guts are mag gripping Wedge Inserts making the pouches into FastMags inside a pouch.  You adjust he depth you want then to be inside the pouch.  Move them up to grab easier, down for longer pouches.  You just rip out he loop tops and velcro these in.  Genius Idea!  I look forward to trying some doubles, where the Kydex pushes the back mag forward for easy grabbing. Check out the Manufacturers web site for a demo.

Review of the ESSTAC 762 KYWI April 13, 2012
Reviewer: Shawn Flores from Sacramento, CA United States  
The wedges does as its designed. Tension for retention depends on how tight the outer pouch is. When used with the ESSTAC 762 Wedge pouch, I find the KYWI lacking in terms of tension for retension.
