Magpul is making good on their promise to deliver a fresh new catalog of swag including clothes, gear and accessories for 2016, and their updated lineup is now shipping. Magpul’s no stranger to “lifestyle” swag but they’re taking things to new heights this year with more than just tees and phone protectors.
Not that Magpul isn’t shipping cool new shirts. They’ve not only introduced new designs, including Gadsden-inspired shirts in remembrance of the Culpeper Minutemen with anti-establishment designs that run the gamut from “Annoy the Establishment” to “Liberty or Death,” Magpul also now offers their shirts in three different weights, fine cotton for all day comfort, superweight for rough work and megablend in between. You can check out all their new shirts here.
Shirts start at $23 and go up to $28 for the superweights. As with all Magpul swag these prices are MSRP and real-world stickers are going to be lower.
The company is also shipping their DAKA pouches, which are multi-purpose, zipper bags for any and all odds and ends. DAKA pouches are offered in small, medium and large, and are water-resistant.
Magpul initially designed the DAKA pouches for in-house use; they found that people were always looking for something to sweep all their junk into and that depending on the junk, a cheap plastic zipper bag just isn’t going to cut it. After realizing that they made a great way to bag up just about any kind of project they decided to offer it up for sale to everyone else.
In addition to being waterproof, they have an integrated lanyard loop and a blank dot matrix for users to markup using paint pens. DAKA bags list between $17 to $28, depending on the size.
While they are, in a sense, a solution looking for a problem, they’ve got the sort of appeal that makes them perfect as gifts, and we’re sure more than a few people will buy them just to see what the fuss is about.

They’re also shipping the first of their new line of gloves for everyday work, use on the range and in the field. To date, they’ve announced six styles of glove, from their simple leather Ranch Gloves to their hard-use Core FR Breach Gloves. Their Breach, Flight, Patrol and Technical gloves feature finger pads that work with touch-sensitive controls including touchscreens on phones and tablets.
Apart from the all-natural Ranch Gloves Magpul uses a combination of synthetics and leathers for dexterity, breatheability and protection. The Breach Gloves have armored reinforcements across the knuckles for over-the-top protection in full-contact situations. For now, they are all offered in their base colors, black for the tactical gloves and hide for the Ranch Gloves, with other options in the works including urban grey and flat dark earth.
Half of the gloves run less than $50 with MSRPs starting at $25 for the Technical Gloves and $39 for the Ranch Gloves. The Patrol Gloves, which have the most all-purpose appeal are $45. The reinforced Breach are the most expensive at $69 for the base model and $119 for the Nomex and Kevlar-reinforced pair.
Gloves aren’t the only new leatherwork products to bear the Magpul brand. Last year they launched their Tejas 1.5-inch gun belt and they’re now shipping in black in addition to the original light brown, with Chocolate brown to follow. Now they’re offering belt hardware, too, in brass and pewter finishes with the Magpul logo emblazoned on the screws. The hardware is standard and can be used with Magpul belts as well as any other 1.5-inch 2-screw belts.
As far as gun belts go Magpul’s are, like a lot of their products, priced in the middle of the road between budget options and premium goods. The belts have MSRPs of $85 and the Magpul hardware kits just $13.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for friends and family Magpul’s got a little something for everyone here. Next time a birthday, holiday or celebration rolls around, keep this Magpul swag in mind.
