One things for sure- if you’ve invested in some serious hardware, then it really pays to look after it. Nothing can do thta like a decent padded gun bag! Thin ‘gun slips’ do a basic job, by satisfying the legal aspect in a public place of keeping away prying eyes. Yet for peace of mind, a more substantial design really pays dividends. I’ve used ‘drag bag’ style cases for some time, but their intrinsic weight can often be a hindrance when lugging kit around in the field for any length of time. On show here is a neat alternative, from a respected manufacturer, that comes in as a positive lightweight by comparison.
Jack Pyke has become an ever more familiar name across the shooting scene over the last few years and their popularity is well founded. Supplying products that the enthusiast wants, is what they are about, and their Rifle Bag is just such an item that delivers where it matters.
The design and shape is based on the generic assault rifle style with a wedge shape. Made out of 1000D Cordura, there are features aplenty and ruggedness to the build which brings confidence. There’s a large padded main section can take a sizeable rifle fitted with telescopic sight for a start, and of course this is the main priority, as many cases prove too thin to do the job properly.
Two carry handles (also formed from tough webbing) are on one side, along with a lengthy zip along the back half of the case. The design has obviously been well researched, as there’s also one large and two smaller pouches, to the rear, all with Velcro fastening flaps. In addition, a large zipped pocket features at the front. I’d probably have fitted twin carry handles on the other side too, but as it stands, it’s a very pleasing specification.
Unlike many standard designs (straight line case, twin central handles), this bag is more aimed at transportation and physically hiking with the rifle. To that end, it comes fitted with super strong rucksack-style shoulder carrying straps, to be used in conjunction with the waist belt. These are really well padded for comfort, as well as being mounted on webbing straps embedded and woven into the fabric. A full length shoulder/ body strap is also attached, and all are adjustable.
It’s a ‘belts and braces’ approach to putting the bag on your back and trekking to your destination; safe in the knowledge that the gun is secure and comfortable in transit. Hats off to Jack Pyke for this Rifle Bag, for it’s a well thought out design, specifically aimed at the serious field sportsman who means business; and I can’t see them being disappointed!
