Esstac magazine pouches are made without any built in belt loops or PALS attachments, these are sold separately and attached to the webbing on the back of the pouch. These pouches are also compatible with numerous other attachment systems such as MALICE clips etc.
Esstac KYWI insert
The KYWI insert is made from Kydex and designed to offer both retention and quick magazine removal. The insert flexes enough to allow magazines to be inserted and extracted. When a magazine is inserted the insert squeezes it tight enough to allow a pouch with a fully loaded magazine to be flipped upside down without the magazine falling out. To pull out a magazine just give it a good yank and out it comes!
This kind of "speed reload" pouches are always a compromise, the quicker the reload the bigger the risk of lost magazines. When safe retention over prolonged periods in the field is your main concern we recommend traditional pouches with bungee cord retention or lids. What really makes the KYWI pouches stand out from other similar designs is their sleek design and absence of any external shock cord adjusters and other details which can cause snagging.
