Esstac Pistol KYWI Single Mag Pouch
Based on the runaway success of the M4 KYWI line of pouches, ESSTAC is proud to introduce their new Pistol KYWI pouch line up for the discerning shooter.
Constructed of a double layer 1000D Cordura body and backing, the Pistol KYWI pouch is made to survive abrasion while the minimalist design keeps the weight to a minimum. Measuring 3.5" tall, the Pistol KYWI pouch allows for full depth adjustment so you can have most or almost none of your Double Stack pistol magazine sticking out beyond the top edge of the pouch.
Made to fit most common 9/40 double stack pistol magazines, the Pistol KYWI pouch will hold up to a Glock 21 magazine, but will NOT retain a single stack 1911 mag.
The Pistol KYWI pouch makes a great addition for Molle padded belts, and attaches via 2 Short Malice Clips (not included). These pouches retain your mags with authority yet release them lightning fast when grabbed. Made by the magical nylon and kydex fairies of Camano Island, WA, USA.
Gets the job done! A tight hold so outside of army crawling and rolling around hard on the ground I prefer these over bungee retained mags for quicker draw access. When they are new can sometimes be a little tough on re-inserting.
What can I say, this product is of very good quality, has excellent retention of mags, and is very sturdy once mounted. Yes, it is a bit more pricey than other mag carriers, but experience has taught me that in this case it is well worth it. I own no safe queens and I am very hard on my gear. I need to know that it can take punishment and be mission capable at all times, in all environments; extreme cold/heat, water (salt water also), roped up cliffs, dragged on the deck, snagged by every manner of vine and thorn etc. ESSTAC products have yet to disappoint, but I will keep trying.
I have been a shooter and competition shooter for over 30 years now. Recently having to do a shoot test, where the spent magazine must be reinserted (re-indexed). Draw-1shot-reload-re-index spent mag-1shot within 3 seconds. This magazine pouch allowed for the mag to easily be re-inserted keeping me within the time required. The Kydex insert will never let go of the mag and keeps the pouch shape when empty. I am very satisfied with these pouches!
Sits slick on the bent, holds tight, the belt clips are genius and let you slide pouches on a belt quickly. Definitely beats fiddling with MOLLE and Malice to get the right placement on a belt. Stitching is top notch. Best pistol mag pouch I have used yet.
