I’m no stranger to AIM Field Sports drag bags as I own one of their AIM 40s, which is ideal for carbines like my Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 22 semi-auto AR, or equally a 223 straight-pull gun too. Protection, storage, access and carriage are of the highest order and what you are getting will protect your precious 100% - be it from knocks or the weather.
High Fashion and Function Camo
My bag is in desert tan but AIM offer a number of colour/camo options, which is sensible as we all want something a bit different.
However they have now decided to make the drag bags in the latest military pattern that the British forces use – MULTICAM®. Designed by Crie Industries it’s rated as one of the most effective and versatile patterns available and it looks cool too, which is something we all like. If you don’t know, a drag bag has to live up to its name! It must be able to carry a rifle and accessories safely and securely and in the strictest sense of the description can be towed behind the shooter over any sort of terrain as they get into final position.
Ruggedly constructed from 1000 denier Cordura nylon over thick, closed-cell padding with hi-grade zips and clips all round it’s tough enough! All handles and drag hood are box-stitched and reinforced. Extra stowage is taken care of by two large external utility pockets positioned on the right of the bag. Here there is plenty of room for accessories like spare magazines, tools, ammo and even spotting scopes etc. Inside the well-padded interior are adjustable weapon securing straps with fast-release clips and an integral cleaning rod sleeve.
Also, when opened out fully, it can double as a shooting mat.
On Your Back
Along with a double carry handle the rear of the bag features a concealed (deployable) harness with padded/adjustable shoulder, waist and sternum straps. This will allow you to carry the bag on your back comfortably for long distances as it offers a well-balanced load designed to carry the weight of the rifle - and all the extras needed.
The AIM 50 and 55 drag bags (MULTICAM®) are priced at £174 and £186 respectively (inc VAT). For more information contact AIM Field Sports on 01606 860678 or visit www.aimfieldsports.com
