Esstac 762 KYWI (pronounced "kiwi")

Kywi inserts come with both sides having hook velcro.

All KYWI Pouches include the required inserts.

Replacement 7.62 KYWI inserts.

Esstac's 7.62 KYWI inserts are the original kydex insert for mag pouches. They were designed to replace our bungee flaps in our mag pouches and chest rigs that we have been manufacturing since 2004. 


Will these 7.62 KYWI inserts work in other manufacturers equipment? The honest truth we have no idea. We have been told by customers that our 7.62 KYWI inserts work in other manufacturers equipment but we can't tell you which ones they do and don't work in. We do not buy other gear company's equipment and test our inserts in them so we can't tell you what they are going to work or not work in. If you decide to buy our 7.62 KYWI insert to use in a different manufacturers equipment that is your choice.

    Great Retrofit

    Posted by Brian on 3rd Aug 2021

    Used 4 of these inserts for a D3CRX-Heavy. Removed the bungees and have perfect retention with no modifications. True drop-in compatibility. Holds well on all types of AK mags without being impossible to pull with one hand and punching yourself in the mouth. Highly recommend !

    As advertised

    Posted by Paul Sampson on 31st Jan 2020

    Received as ordered in a timely manner. Bit of a learning curve fitting them to the pouch, but once in they perform as advertised. Mags stay in place but come out easily when pulled. Will be getting more in the future, definitely

    Initial impressions

    These inserts will be used in a Unity Clutch battle belt with FAL mags for supported weapon. Fit and hold with empty mags is good. As a secondary platform improvement I did try the fit of these inserts in an ATS chest rig with open top mag pockets, but the fit was too tight for practical applications.

    To tall for all 7.62 pouches i have.

    Posted by Colin Carr on 10th Sep 2017

    These are almost the same height as the 5.56, but all the pouches I own are 2/3rd the height of the 5.56 pouches. To tall and won't stay inside any pouch I own. Definitely take measurements of your pouches and compare to insert prior to purchasing.

    Bought these to insert into my 7.62 placard for the Mayflower APC for quicker access during matches. No velcro in the placard but they held in just fine, even when the M14 locking tabs would grab the divider webbing. Quick shipping.

    Doesn't really fit m1a mags

    Posted by Steve on 24th Feb 2017

    If you take your time... You can squeeze them in... But as they are they are too tight to realistically fit 3 mags. I had to modify and rip stitches so they would fit. Also the bottom of the pouches are folded inward and stitched so the "lip" catches the edges of the mag so they have to be forcefully pushed in/past the stitching. Not a lot of options for us m1a guys...I was really hoping these would work. I also bought judex inserts to try and aid in magazine inserting but that also isn't work. There isn't enough room/fabric to fit around the magazines. If they were about .25-.5 inches bigger all these issues would be mitigated... Too bad... All the materials used were good and the stitches were great. This product shouldn't be labeled as usable for m1a magazines. Also mags fit perfect with room to reinsert one handed. Ar10 mags were the same. M1a, fal, steel box mags are a no go.

    Quality product

    Posted by John H on 8th Nov 2016

    These inserts are well made and have Velcro that keeps them nice and snug inside the pouch. Not much else to say about them other than they do the job quite well. A big thanks to the skdtac team for the quality service and fast shipping!

    Holy Grail for mag pouches...not yet.

    Posted by Charles Ho on 8th Oct 2015

    These inserts are about 4" tall and I found that they will fit inside a TT open top .308 single mag pouch perfectly. The top of the insert is just flush with the mouth of the pouch. I was hoping to put together a chest rig that would pull double duty with 5.56 and .308 mags. 5.56 mags aren't quite snug enough. .308 mags slide in and out great with just the right amount of friction. I haven't tried AK mags yet.
