DESCRIPTION
 
Esstac Pistol KYWI (Kydex Wedge Insert)

The Esstac Pistol KYWI Insert (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.
Additional Info

From Stu @ Esstac

CZ mags work, however they are a bit narrower then glock mags and they have a longer taper. Narrower means less tension, and the longer taper means the mag will release from the KYWI compression sooner. While the pistol kywi pouch works for most CZ, I recommend buying a single to see if it suits your needs. What works for me or others may not suit everyone. With that said, I run an unmodified DBL kywi pouch for my CZ and have used it a few times in IDPA without issue.

Great Gear !! January 27, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Tsuda from Honolulu, HI United States  
Got the inserts for our open top pistol pouches.  Must have gear if you gonna run with the tops down.  Keeps the mags in place until you need them.  Had no issues with mags falling out while moving or shooting from various positions.  Highly recommended !

Everything you need, nothing you donÕt January 14, 2018
Reviewer: Derek W. from Jacksonville Beach , FL United States  
Running a Ronin Tactics belt and these pouches with malice clips for 2 gun competitions and in general hard use classes. Esstac pouches with the kydex inserts have great retention and donÕt move at all, even during full sprints, kneeling, prone or obstacle movements. They also donÕt have any excess material hanging off of the pouches. Everything you need, nothing you donÕt.

Who thought up bungee cords stays?!*# December 4, 2017
Reviewer: Shawn Carter from Inverness, FL United States  
Tried it with both single (.45) and double stack (Glock) magazines in a Haley pistol mag pouch... inset worked great with both, allowing fast removal even while holding it securely in the pouch!
