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.

5 of 5 Pistol kydex wedge August 19, 2019
Reviewer: Brandon Lok from San Francisco , CA United States  
The wedges are awesome, if you have your own pouches and want to make them just like the Easstac ones, except the wedges are a fraction of the price and only takes seconds to install

5 of 5 Problem Solved July 25, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Joaquin County, CA  
My department recently switched to load bearing vests with sewn in pockets. The magazine pouches that came with them were garbage: no retention, with a Velcro flap. With these inserts, I was able to cut the flaps off and still have the perfect level of security and retention for my mags. 10/10.
