This could have been outstanding. They just missed designing it right. The muzzle slides into a sleeve, then there's a fabric cone that goes over that but that cone doesn't completely cover the barrel! So with your gun all enclosed in the case, there's about a foot of the barrel still exposed. If the cone had a velcro strip on the bottom, it would have solved the problem. The other negative is that the shooting pad folds in such a way that the rifle is stored against the underside of the mat. So if you shot off wet, muddy ground, now your gun will be stored in that mud.
Pros: Well made, very comfortable when used as a backpack
Cons: Some design flaws
