Magpul DAKA wallets: tough, waterproof, super slim

5 comments

A while back, I posted a news item about the Magpul DAKA Pouch. Made in the U.S.A. from polymer-infused, chemical-resistant, non-hygroscopic (will not absorb moisture) textiles with an anti-slip texture that are impenetrably RF-welded on all seams, the DAKA Pouch is one of the toughest gear carrying items you may ever find. 

Not content with just pouches, Magpul has also released two DAKA Wallets: the DAKA Essential Wallet (above left) and the DAKA Micro Wallet (above right). The DAKA Essential Wallet holds 3-7 cards in a combination of 1 pocket in the front and 2 in the back, (check out the video) while the DAKA Micro Wallet holds 1-3 cards in a single pocket. Both are available in Flat Dark Earth (shown above left), Black (shown above right), Stealth Gray or Olive Drab Green colors. The Magpul DAKA Essential Wallet retails for $16.95 and the DAKA Micro Wallet retails for $9.95. I have to say, these look pretty cool; that DAKA Essential Wallet could give my current EDC wallet, the SlimFold Soft Shell wallet, a run for its money. Shoot over to magpul.com for additional info or to order.

    I would always highly recommend Magpuls iPhone cases and I’m kind of excited to try out these wallets, especially at this price.

      Thanks for stopping by The Gadgeteer, Tony! I completely agree. I’ve owned a couple of Magpul’s iPhone cases and they are top notch, especially for the price. I can’t imagine that these DAKA Wallets (or their DAKA Pouches for that matter) would be any different.

    The Field phone cases seem quite tough but unfortunately, they don’t have one for my Note 5. I work in fields a lot (during field surveys etc) and have already broken my back cover once. This would have been a nice choice.

      I agree, Ahmed! I wish Magpul made cases for every phone out there. Considering the simplicity of their cases, I would think it would be fairly easy to do this, but I suppose that it is a matter of manufacturing costs and volumes for Magpul.

        I don’t know how long have they been in business but yes it’s all about costs and volumes. iPhone comes in 2 standard sizes so it’s an easy batch production for them compared to numerous models of Samsung and other OEMs.

        Anyway, I really like your posts and want to keep in touch. whats your twitter handle?
