Esstac 762 KYWI - 10 Pack Deal

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.

5 of 5 Great Quality! February 10, 2020
Reviewer: James  
Accidentally ordered these in 7.62 when i meant to get the 5.56 ones (my fault lol) but they still fit and still hold my AR 15 mags extremely well! Was abit difficult to get a few of them in the two end pouches on my chestrig but after they were in they worked flawlessly in retaining my 5.56 mags and re indexing during mag swaps was a breeze!

I highly recommend these inserts!

5 of 5 Works well. February 17, 2019
Reviewer: Al from PA United States  
When putting these into existing pouches they do well so you don't have to buy a new pouch system for your carrier or belt setup. They hold the pockets open do they don't velcro shut when empty. I used the long version so it keeps them open for re insertion. Works well but took a little bit for me to get used to it. I used it for both 5.56 and 7.62 pouches and it turned out great.
