T.REX KYWI Placard – 5.56
Made in partnership with Esstac, this is our 556 KYWI Placard which is designed to hold three .223/5.56 magazines and attach to plate carriers via buckles and/or hook and loop. Utilizing a hybrid Kydex and nylon design, you get all the rigidity you expect from a Kydex pouch with the lack of noise you want from a nylon pouch. These pouches feature Esstac’s Kydex wedge insert (KYWI), which provides the needed retention to secure your magazines without the need for a bungee cord. This will also accommodate 5.45×39 magazines.
The backside of this placard is hook material, so it can easily grab on to the velcro found on the front of most plate carriers and cummerbund flaps. The buckles are attached to a hook & loop material that can be adjusted in length to fit perfectly on your plate carrier or chest rig (high or low). Or removed for slick-use.
It does not come with side buckles, but there are four side loops sewn in (two on each side) so you can add your own buckles if you wish to run this with a traditional chest rig harness from companies like HSP, Spiritus, or Velocity Systems. It also comes with a Velcro backer that covers the interior hook field so it’s non-abrasive if you choose to run it as a chest rig.
