Daypack and Outdoor EDC

I have hiked 1000+ miles on my trip around the US and Canada since last Fall, and this gear almost always comes with me when I’m outdoors.

By now, you might’ve seen Magpul’s DAKA line of pouches and wallets recommended as weatherproof EDC options thanks to their rugged construction and protective materials. The newest addition to the DAKA line, the Suppressor Pouch, is like a trimmed down version of the original DAKA storage pouch. Officially, it’s designed to fit a suppressor and its required NFA paperwork. But since you probably don’t EDC one of those, you can look at this pouch in a different way. This is one of the most rugged tactical pen and pencil cases available today.

At 9 x 3 inches, the suppressor pouch is smaller than the rest of the DAKA line. That’s just the right amount of space to store the writing implements of your choice and keep them safe on the go. Even if you don’t carry multiple pens, it’ll stash a few of those awkwardly long items in your EDC, like 2-cell flashlights, dedicated screwdrivers, pry bars, and more.

The Suppressor Pouch retains the rugged polymer construction that’s welded to keep the elements out. Plus, a reliable, water-tight YKK zipper its contents safe from dirt and water. Each corner of the pouch also features a lanyard attachment point, letting you easily clip or tie the pouch into your EDC pack system.

If you’re looking for a pencil case that’s more on the rugged tactical side, consider giving this pouch a shot. Pick one up at the link below.
