Coming soon in three sizes, and likely more in the future, the new Magpul DAKA Hard Cases are a family of well-thought-out rifle and gear cases with a Lego-like modular foam padding system inside.
Grid blocks come in multiple sizes and shapes to allow for the custom-configuring of the internal padding structure. With a peg on one side and hole on the other, the grid blocks connect together and can be re-configured as often as you desire.
These blocks were made of a dense, rubbery-ish closed cell foam of some sort. My first impression feeling them, twisting them, pressing on them, etc. is that they appear to have struck a very nice balance of toughness and squishiness.
Big latches are designed to operate easily with only one hand, and they do. Pass-throughs are available for zip ties as well as padlocks.
The case itself is molded from gas charged polypropylene, whatever that is. It feels solid, it has a little flex, and Magpul says it’s tough yet lightweight.
The DAKA Hard Cases aren’t available yet, but are coming soon.
