Esstac 556 KYWI (pronounced "kiwi")

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.

How to Install:
Adjusting the KYWI for different magazine heights

Ordered plenty May 4, 2019
Reviewer: Aahhron from 808  
Ordered so much, used so much. Never lost a mag yet. For rigs i know ill keep, i glue (via e6000) loop velcro to the inside pockets so the hook velcro will catch. I did experience in 1 of my chest rigs where the kydex insert came out ever so slightly without loop velcro on the inside.

fast shipping and great product May 2, 2019
Reviewer: Lamar Palmer from McDonough, GA United States  
The shipping was super fast.  I picked up 7 of these for my plate carrier and battle belt set up.  They work like a charm.  The keep the mags secure.  They work great with polymer mags.  Only issue I had was with metal mags.  They have gorilla grip on those.  They don't like to let go of the metal are mags.  Which is ok with me cause I only have 2 of them.  Great pricing and great product.

Reviewer: Jovan Jackson  
I had an issue with billing but it was fixed in less than a day, we live in an imperfect world and stuff happens, but the response to the issue was quick and for that I'm going to give them 5 stars
