Elite Survival Systems Announces New Loadout Range Bag
Eve Flanigan 08.23.21
Tactical and range gear manufacturer Elite Survival Systems (ESS) has just released a new and well-equipped range bag called the Loadout. This bag seems to deliver remedies for common range bag-related woes. ESS equipped the Loadout with luggage rails so the bag is sturdy and will maintain its shape. Those who subject their range bag to field use or TSA baggage handlers will appreciate the literal support.
No more digging into the “black hole” with this bag, either. An innovative zipped opening allows it to be open a little, or to be exposed completely via the side. That side opening rolls out into a padded gun mat, perfect for protecting guns from abrasion and dirt, and providing a small workspace for keeping track of springs, pins, and such during minor repairs. A plethora of dividers and webbing features allow for organization of magazines and other gear. There’s a removable dump pouch for brass, and an external water bottle pouch.
This is a sizable bag – 17 x 10 x 11 inches. It’s big enough for four pistols with all related mags, ammo, and range gear, or at least one carbine, broken down with all its accoutrements. The Loadout is equipped with carry handles/shoulder strap and is portable by the average person. However, if traveling light is preferred, the bag has lift-out, zippered and padded bags with carry handles, ideal for a single pistol and extra mag or two with a bit of ammo to go.
On the outside and in the lining, PALS and laser-cut MOLLE plus Velcro are provided for attaching modular pouches and other what-nots. All hardware is heavy-duty. The material is abrasion-resistant 1500 denier nylon.
The Loadout Range Bag is sold in black with coyote brown lining or all-coyote brown. The price by direct order is $159.95, with 15% off available in exchange for joining the company’s mailing list.
