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

5 of 5 Good kit January 12, 2020
Reviewer: Brent  
Fits my chest rig well. Magazines stay put during running and jumping. Able to remove mags easily and much faster than the bungee retention system that preceded these inserts.

Good kit !

5 of 5 Esstac 556 KYWI January 2, 2020
Reviewer: Donnie from AL United States  
Works perfect inside RDR Gear MCP with the addition of WBTactical adapters. Mags ain’t coming out until you pull them out. As for SKDTac, these folks are excellent. Product was shipped and received very quickly and packaged great. Highly recommend SKD.

4 of 5 Great Product and Shipping December 22, 2019
Reviewer: David Su from Georgia, GA United States  
Excellent shipping time, super fast. These clips hold steel mags very securely. Only downside is they're a bit tall and stick out from my low pouches.

5 of 5 Perfect for retro-fit December 20, 2019
Reviewer: Emmanuel Arroyo from Dover, DE United States  
These are great to replace the bungee/flaps on pouches. I use 1 to act as a fast mag. They protrude a bit, and they do need to be beveled if you want that.
