You really need to know what you need or what you are looking for before you start shopping for a range bag. Too many people rush into buying backpacks and range bags and find out they needed something bigger or that they should have spent more money on something instead of buying small. Pistol bags and range bags are often out grown as well as gun cases. We should have hit the record button in the store this week and just posted the transcripts of some of the things our customers said about what they should have gotten from us in the last year. Too many people start out with price restrictions and end up buying twice instead of once for rifle cases and range bags. Scopes on pistols or added accessories like pistol magazines are nice to keep together, all in once place.
Having a bugout bag means different things to different people and not everyone is going to put the same things in there. Some tactical teams and swat teams are going to put things in something like Elite Survival Systems bags that have food and medical supplies in them. I think having medical supplies in a bugout bag are a good idea but small quantities of food or ammo is something you can easily stow away and just forget it’s there. The Elite Survival Systems smokescreen concealment backpack, especially the navy blue one is very low profile and almost looks like it should say NIKE on it since it’s very sporty or athletic looking.
