I feel it’d be fair to say tactical-style gunbags are now all the rage for all shooting disciplines. Also, considering the stowage, carrying options and other features they offer its little surprise they are.
That nicely leads me to the Allen Pro-Series Tactical Case/Drag Bag, as it’s amongst one of the better examples of this type of gun luggage. Measuring 48 x 14” (at its widest point) and 3” deep, the exterior including pockets is manufactured from 1200D Black Cordura, with a generous amount of dense foam padding integral for protection. Even so, the case easily accommodates most silenced air rifles/centrefires up to 46” in length with big scopes and bipods.
Along one side are four external pockets and an integral drag handle positioned towards the front. The main pocket measures 10 X 10 X 2” deep and has two internal adjustable straps with snap clip buckles to help keep items stowed from moving around. Next to this is what would be a magazine pouch. This measures 10 X 4 X 2” and will accept either a bipod or extra buddy bottle. Next along are two sets of narrow pockets that run parallel with the bag. All have double zip fastening, are 18 X 2” deep but vary as one is 2 ½” wide the other 4”. Here you could keep cleaning kit or shooting sticks.
On the opposite side is an adjustable backpack harness, with sternum strap. The system has two convex shaped well-padded shoulder straps designed to naturally fit your upper torso. It positions the bag quite high as to not hinder your movement when walking as some others do. When not in use, the harness slips into a neat Velcro fastened pocket. Other carrying options are two large central carry handles that attach together using the familiar ‘wrap around’ padded Velcro strap. There’s also a detachable, adjustable single shoulder strap with integral sliding soft rubber shoulder pad.
The case has a rigid spine and fastens with double heavy-duty zips, when fully opened can be used as a comfortable shooting mat. To ensure extra security when closed, a snug fitting press stud overflap has been included – these also help to protect the zips from the elements. Internally a padded butt retainer, plus two adjustable ABS snap clip securing straps ensure the rifle won’t move around in transit. There’s also a press stud fastened pocket with nine elasticated bullet loops while the outer of the bag has a myriad of Alice-style loops.
To sum up - the Allen Pro Series Tactical Case/Drag Bag is a high quality and fully featured ‘gunbag’ that will suit the hunter in the field or for certain shooters heading to the range.
