New from Magpul is the DAKA Grid Organizer, a fully customizable, drop-in organizational solution designed to secure and protect your most sensitive equipment when stored or transported in a hard case. Individual Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) end panels and center panels work together to create a storage solution that combines increased protection and maximum versatility. The organizational DAKA Blocks are easily pressed into the Grid Base in your preferred configuration and can be quickly removed and reinstalled to fit almost any item.

The DAKA Grid system is specifically designed to fit two of Pelican’s most popular hard gun cases, creating a simple, drop-in storage system that allows for endless customization and comes with a set of Grid Blocks that can be organized to brace and secure rifles, clips, optics, accessories, and other gear. The lightweight EPP blocks provide advanced protection for your gear and helps eliminate shifting of gear during transport. The overall result is better impact resistance and stronger protection for your gear than you’ll get from current foam options.

Offering numerous advantages over traditional foam or expensive laser-cut inserts, the DAKA Grid Organizer provides intuitive, modular organization at your fingertips. The system can be completely reconfigured without tools or additional cutting. The Grid’s EPP construction provides resistance to chemical intrusion and damage, and clean up of any dirt or liquids is easy with a damp cloth.
