Magpul DAKA Hard Case & GRID Organizer
DAKA Hard Case
We got an early look at the new DAKA Hard Case at the recent Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous. And it’s an impressive new hard case entry into the market. The case represents a stronger, easy-to-use protector. Magpul eliminated snag points, including critical lock areas. with ergonomic handles on two sides, the case stands on either edge for ease in airports. Better latches, recessed lock housings, and dependable wheels all mark the upgrades here.

In an interesting new product we didn’t see coming, Magpul attacked a problem with travel cases. Their answer is the GRID Organizer system. Made to fit two popular Pelican cases, along with the DAKA, the GRID is different. A drop-in Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) GRID base replaces the old foam designs. No more cutting to fit. Instead, you can configure the GRID system repeatedly, giving your system so much more utility. Now one system will fit any gun, without cutting.
