The good people at Eagle Industries have helped this idea become a reality. The Concealed Carry Backpack is designed to hold a completely assembled and loaded rifle with barrel up to 10.5" long. The backpack will also hold rifles with barrels up to 16" if the upper and lower are separated.

The inside is lined with MOLLE straps to facilitate the installation of various types of accessory pouches. The backpack is supplied with a MOLLE mounted muzzle support, and two elastic quick release straps to secure the rear of the rifle.

Looks like it will fit a folded SU-16ca... awesome! Now if they can do something about the "Is it deer season?" orange and the lo profile logo... :rolleyes:

Maybe they should get rid of the bright color and ditch the "OH MY GOD I GOT A GUN!" logo.

If I were to conceal something it wouldn't be in this backpack...not discreet at all.

I agree about the color, but Noveske isn't exactly a household name like Glock or Beretta and I doubt many people who aren't dedicated AR enthusiasts would recognize it.

Anyway, I think CA law makes this pretty well useless. How many places, besides private property with the consent of the owner, can you legally CCW a loaded rifle even if you had a permit?

Also, I see the potential hazard of people being tempted to throw other things in with the rifle. Next thing you know the bag gets jostled around, safety gets clicked-off (if it was engaged in the first place), a pen gets in the trigger guard and bad things happen. No bueno.

Why would that be illegal? If you are someplace that you are allowed to carry a loaded rifle (e.g. camping, hunting, fishing), you can carry it however you want. A rifle is, by the legal definition, a non-concealable weapon. AND, if you are hunting or fishing in a place that does not prohibit firearms, you CAN carry a handgun, loaded and concealed, without a permit. At least that was the impression I got from the last time this came up. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong on any of these...

Unless you're in a school zone, you can dump a rifle into whatever the heck you feel like dumping it into and carry it around. JK Supply sells rifle cases that look like guitar cases. I just use an actual guitar case. The concealed carry laws only apply to pistols, revolvers, or "firearms capable of being concealed upon the person." That last part, while admittedly vague, is not easily applied to rifles unless you're dealing with someone the size of Shaq or Yao Ming. The law also bans "camouflaging firearm containers," but specifically defines those as containers that allow the firearm to be fired by external controls while the firearm is in the container.

*sigh* Yet another "concealed long gun" case that only works for SBR's. 5.11 has a nicer looking bag in the same market niche.

There's nothing I'm aware of on the market particularly designed for 26" rifles, which an unmodded PAR-1 qualifies as.

This can only CC a SBR.

If you break up your non-SBR rifle, it is not longer a "loaded" rifle. Even if you have ammo in the magazine in the lower receiver, since it is no longer in the "ready to fire" configuration. You can also put all the twinkles, cup-cakes, etc you want in to the bag, and will never be able to fire a round off! ;)

I'm not sure why you'd want to CC a longgun. Tbh I think something like Blackhawk's concealed carry messenger bag makes a ton more sense (has a pistol holster underneath it that can be easily reached by the bag carrier).

What would be the point of carrying a concealed AR? And if you had it broken down and unloaded not useful in self defense. I can assemble my rifle in a fast safe manner but I doubt it would be any help to me in a emergency situation. Maybe could be usefull for a LE officer or someone who could carry an SBR other than that pretty pointless. I have one of the JK Supply Guitar cases but I use it as a range bag not for walking around my neighborhood carrying my rifle.

There's nothing concealed about this.

Henceforth this pack shall be known across the land as: "The Official Noveske Advertising Platform Rifle Bag"

Putting cost aside, it all depends on who you're trying to conceal from. If you're just trying to avoid freaking out your typical "Oh noes guns are b-b-b-b-bad!" neighbor who knows nothing about guns, the Noveske bag works just as well as any other, because it doesn't look like a gun bag -- my first thought was that it looked like a gaudy version of a North Face day pack you might buy at REI. But if you're also trying to avoid attention from LEOs, a sports bag or the JKSupply guitar case works better.

That thing is so full of fail, what in the world were they thinking? Trying to market to that lucrative market of guys that own an SBR and would like to put it in a flourescent bag with a huge "Noveske" patch on it, idiots!!

Plenty of MOLLE mag pouches out there. That way you can put purpose-built mag pouches on the inside without them having to make dozens of backpack designs.

Yeah I get that- thanks though since looking back I realize I wasn't very clear. I really just many why would you put them on the inside and not on the outside as well? My favorite go-to pack is one of the military camel packs. Has the MOLLE straps on the inside and the outside. Seems more convenient that way.

I think they figured that MOLLE on the outside would be more of a giveaway.

Actually, now that I think of it, probably this is made by some company FOR Noveske. And that company probably sells a non-Noveske-branded version that's a lot less conspicuous.

On the Noveske model, yeah stick the straps on the outside, because everyone with a clue's going to know what that is. :)

Hell why not just stuff the rifle down your pants and act like you've got a limp? Would work as well as that pack Noveske is selling.

Must be made for the folks that'll buy anything if it has the Noveske log on it...:rolleyes:

Maybe I'll buy some MC Hammer pants so I can carry two concealed rifles. Think I could market the idea to Noveske?....Have them put MOLLE straps inside for extra support and also line them with 25-30 magazine pouches too?

Yes. Those who say, do not know. Those who know, do not say.

Remember the military describing the quiet professionals of our armed forces?

BTW, this post is NOT directed to the quoter, but agrees with your take that it screams, "look at me"!

IIRC, and someone please correct me if I dont RC, long arms are considered non-concealable firearms so therefore we may conceal them. We would just have to keep them unloaded and -- keep it locked within 1000 ft of a school zone.

Correct guys?

I think people here need to remember that in some parts of the country carrying a gun or wearing gun logo clothing is not out of the ordinary.

I bet I could walk through the middle of San Francisco or Berkley wearing that and not turn a single head.

On the other hand, my concealment back pack will be smaller, a broken down PS90 is pretty small.
