I’m not sure quite how tactical a bag can be, but a good-sized duffle is perfect for those overnight trips or storing all your shooting gear for a day at the club. Tough Duraflex buckles and hardware, with unbreakable handles and attachments, makes the Cannae Transport Tactical Duffle Bag a good choice. Add in twin internal dividers, adjustable on Velcro in four locations, so fantastic for separating your base, mid and outer gear for short trips. An extending internal to external ‘boot’ pocket allows the bag to grow, for when it gets stuffed back full of unfolded laundry.
If you want to add more storage, especially for hardware and strapped on shooting accessories, there is plenty of Molle attachment as well as twin pockets at either end surrounded by mesh. A broad shoulder carrying strap is supplied that clicks securely into place on Duraflex buckles. The 500D Cordura is firm but not too inflexible to sift through with an overall capacity of 60-litres sitting 280mm above the 650x350mm footprint. The bag alone weighs 1.6kg but full, you can easily get this way beyond 10kg, yet the padded strap and palm filling grab handles don’t seem too bulky and spread the weight for a comfortable carry.
I have dragged this bag across five countries and 10 flights in the last 3 months, with no failures or pulls in the fabric or at the YKK zippered seams. Being able to keep your clean and dirty gear apart is great for hunting trips, with mud and blood stains you don’t want on your evening wear. Plus, the smaller pockets within the baffles are superb for storage of smaller items that you don’t want to pierce the outer shell, like a travel plugs etc.
If you do want to use it as a kit or range bag, the weight of ammo is still well retained and carried with the load well distributed. Long pockets on either side show one with ventilation mesh preventing wet gear getting too fruity and the other, fully sealed, is far more discreet. Grab handles on each end as well as the grips and shoulder strap make it quick to haul in/out of any luggage storage and the outer sheds light rain well, although I do tend to double bag internals anyway. Black or Coyote are the two colour choices and with brutal practicality, I tend to prefer the lighter colour, as it’s easier to see and find whatever is nestled inside without ‘losing’ items that are hiding in plain sight, especially magazines for rifles!
