Esstac Double 556 KYWI (pronounced "kiwi")
Don't Like bungee topped magazine pouches on your HSGI Wa/Wee Plate Carrier? Prefer an open topped pouch
for rapid magazine changes? Then look no further- introducing the Double 556 KYWI by Esstac.
The Esstac Double 556 KYWI (Kydex Wedge Insert) allows you to have the option of swapping out all your existing Esstac bungee retention inserts on your HSGI Wa/Wee 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. When both magazines are inserted, the Kydex has enough compression to hold both magazines in place even when the pouch is upside down, yet with a quick
pull on the magazine they release for speedy deployment. Remove one mag? No problem, the elastic band on the inner mag slot will retain the remaining mag- ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.
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.
