For many EDC products, it can be hard to make a great thing even better. Magpul has managed to find a way with the DAKA Pouch storage line, making them even more packable and lightweight while still keeping their slim and useful profile. They’ve managed to accomplish this by swapping out the core material while keeping the great features and durability that have made their DAKA pouches so popular in the community to store your essentials and give them all-weather protection.

The new DAKA Lite Pouches show Magpul as masters of their polymer domain. This new Lite version opts for a new TPU-coated 70D nylon construction that makes the pouches lightweight at just 1.06 ounces for the medium size. You lose the structured rigidity of the original DAKA Pouch, but you gain the ability to see through the pouch to get what you need and identify it quickly. And they’re incredibly packable, able to be folded (or even crumpled) into a small footprint when they’re not in use.

But don’t mistake the thinner material to mean that the new DAKA Pouches are fragile: the material is abrasion-resistant, with RF-welded seams and a waterproof YKK zipper to keep the elements at bay. The carabiner attachment points at each corner make the DAKA Lite Pouches some of the most versatile EDC organizers you can buy today.

Like the original Magpul DAKA pouches, the new Lite models come in three sizes and different colorways to suit your style and requirements. Whether upgrading from the original or making a concerted effort to organize your essentials, the new DAKA Lite Pouches deserve your attention.
