This is a sneak peek at the new Covert Rifle Bag collaboration between 2 Vet’s Arms and London Bridge Trading. We’ve all seen lots of gun bags claiming to be “covert” or “discreet” rifle bags but all too often they should be called the “Obvious Rifle Bag” and can be quite cumbersome and difficult to use. This new collaboration between 2 Vet’s Arms and London Bridge Trading has hit on some of these issues and looks to be an awesome new option.
One of the parts that stood out to me as a really cool new feature is the zippered Rifle Insert that goes inside the outer bag. In all of the other bags of this type that I’ve used the rifle just goes inside the bag and is strapped in. To use the bag for carrying something else you would have to take the rifle out in the open. With this setup the rifle is carried broken down and strapped inside of the insert along with a pouch designed to carry five 30 round mags. If I were out somewhere and needed to “covertly” remove the rifle from the bag, I could simply open it up and take out the Rifle Insert while the gun is still inside. This would allow me to convert the bag to a MASCAL med bag or use it for carrying other items in a snap without broadcasting that I have a rifle with me. That is the whole point to a bag like this.
Some people don’t like the idea of a backpack rifle case because if you needed to use the rifle right away you would have to remove the backpack, open it up, assemble the rifle and then use it. This new Covert Rifle Bag also incorporates a nifty little zippered pocket near the small of your back where you can pack a handgun and access it immediately without having to remove the bag. Its also large enough that you could carry a med kit or iPad, etc. in there instead if you didn’t feel the need for the handgun.
This bag will officially be introduced at SHOT Show 2014 but I did notice they are already up on the 2 Vets Arms website available as both a stand alone bag or as part of their extremely popular 2VA Prepper Package. Definitely head on over to www.2VetsArms.com and check these things out.
