I received the bag about 4 days ago (mine is in ACU patern)and have loaded my gear in it. However, I have not taken it up to the field so the review is based on first impressions. During my initial inspection I found the brand label, NcStar. The features of this bag are great. Back pack straps are good and even though they are not detachable they tuck nicely in a dedicated compartment. Storage is plentiful; the outside has 4 roomy pockets, three of which have securing straps inside. So far I have placed 2 bipods, spotting scope, tripod, small cleaning kit, and log book with room to spare. The interior is well padded with securing straps on both sides. The straps although did not match up to the best tie down spots on my Remington 700 SPS varmint. The padding seemed a little heavy at the zippers, which is better protection a weak spot, but make she zipper a little difficult to use smoothly. The interior accessory pocket is about right size for a box of .308 ammo. Another great feature is the large amount webbing loops, which I laced with 550 cord be able to cinch down other gear to the bag. The web loops also allows for plenty of places to attach ghille garnish.
I did notice some quality issues though. Zippers do seem heavy duty and have dual pulls, however 1 pull was missing from its slider, which was easily replaced from some spares I had on hand. Also, some of the stitching holding the Pal Webbing is weak. Ill have to be cautious adding Molle pouches.
In conclusion the bag seems to be a good value. I the minor issues I encountered is easily overlooked by the price I paid. There are likely better bags out there like Voo-do Tacticals Ultimate sniper drag bag and similar from Eagle and BlackHawk, but the cost is as high as 5-7 times the cost of this bag.
Pros: Price, storage space
Cons: Slight Quality Issues
