Hi guys. In your opinion, who is making the best range bags, rifle cases, pouches etc. ?

I have bagmaster stuff and some no name stuff. I see stuff from CondorOutdoor and maxpedition. Pricey some of it.
What is the best bang for buck and if you know, who is a great online retailer for said products.

Thanks

I can't honestly say what's the best bang for the buck. Take a look at the very good stuff sold by Sinclair International and see how it compares to what you've looked at. They are a well known and well established company catering to benchrest shooters.

Sinclair International is now owned by Brownell's and the quality and service has not faltered at all.

Impressive. I like to buy stuff that lasts. This stuff looks good.
Thanks.

If that didn't scare you off, try this list of bag and rest vendors at Benchrest Central. Check out the list of headings on the left, too.

I'd like to have a Farley Coaxial front rest: 27 pounds, $825 and adjusts windage and elevation with a joystick. Oh well, someday.

I have a i-shot pro shooter, that I have been extremely happy with.

Its pretty rugged, and has held up to use and abuse really well.

The stuff was pricey. Thank God I am not a benchrest shooter. All I need is stuff for rifle, pistol and skeet!!!! Though, my shotgunning bag was damn pricey but has lasted years!

I know, but I like to study the expensive stuff to see if I can figure out where the others are cutting corners. JT

I believe Eagle used to exist as "Assault Systems". Very well done. Packs, and such, Maxpedition, I have three or four of their bags, of various type. F****** rugged...

Wow! The Farley joystick model was pricey at around $350. when it came out, but now it's over $800. ??

Even if they gold plated it I don't think it would account for a $500. increase.

Three four star ratings out of 221 and the rest five stars? Definitely good reviews.

And the video convinced me. That is going to be my next range bag.

I've read good things about that bag on other forums. I have an iShot and an old bag that could well be an Eagle that I still use from time to time if I don't need the huge capacity of the iShot.

Depends on the item. For a range bag, I like this one:

EvanWilliams Thanks for posting this. I was just starting to look at options for a new range bag.

Squirrelnuts The Midway bag looks awesome! I may try it.

I have read somewhere that this is just a rebadge of this bag.
