5.11 Tactical Shooting Gear Bag ReviewedSeptember 15, 2008
Your ability to use your firearm and shooting accessories is limited by your ability to carry them to your desired destination. Leave it to 5.11 Tactical Carrying Bags to solve the problem. When you examine the 5.11 Range Ready Duffel Bag, it exudes quality. This shooting bag is double stitched everywhere which contributes to its solid construction. The shoulder strap is very wide, padded, and contoured to fit your shoulder. The D-rings that connect the strap to the gun bag are also wide and very sturdy. The strap is easy enough to remove when you desire, but will never come undone accidently.
The dimensions of the Range Ready Gun Bag are 24"x16"x10". Running out of space with this 5.11 Tactical Shooting Bag is very improbable . There are 5 compartments (1 large, and 4 medium), and some nooks, and crannies for all your gun and firearm accessories, including a bottle holder and 8 double stack (high cap) magazine pouches sown into the inside of the external pouch. It can even fit multiple firearms. For both convenience and security, all compartments on the 5.11 Tactical Bag are double zippered. The large pouch opens 90 degrees which is an underrated feature; shooting bags are often big enough for your stuff, but the openings are not. You end up having to take apart or cram your gun accessories into the bag.
If this was not enough, this tactical bag also includes a completely removable bag useable by itself. Like its mother shooting bag, this mini-bag uses sturdy D-rings as well. It has 2 zippered compartments, 2 hook and loop dividers, and a drop pouch with a mesh bottom.
The frame of the carrying bag stands by itself unlike some of the flimsy gun bags. Water resistance goes without saying. If you are veteran shooter or hunter, you will do at least some shooting in the rain, and this bag is key for that. There are 5 rubber feet at the bottom for maximum stability for wet and inclined surfaces.
