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.

How to Install:
Adjusting the KYWI for different magazine heights

5 of 5 What I was looking for April 8, 2020
Reviewer: Hoss from WESTMINSTER, MD United States  
This product does exactly what you need!  I run a 3 AR mag holder on the front of my plate carrier and this product unsure the top stays open when I insert the mags.  With this product inside the mag holder I only need one hand to load the mags into the holder.

5 of 5 Just what I needed. February 25, 2020
Reviewer: Anthony D from Lincoln , KS United States  
Added 5 of these to my plate carrier to get rid of the bungees and make for a quicker mag change. The 30 round kywis fit and function perfectly in my kangaroo mag pouch. In the two mag panel on my left side, I need to adjust the rear most kywi to have less friction but that’s my setup not anything the kywi is doing wrong.

Overall great product, will recommend these and tell everyone I ordered them from SKDtactical com.
