Looking for a drag bag that has backpack straps and can double as a shooting mat.

The Midway drag bag I'm using now seems amateurish once I started using it and understand what I did and didn't need.

Thanks.

What didn't you like about the midway one? Was it the professional series one or the cheaper version? I would like a backpack style too though they're usually double or triple theprice, but I do like the price as I saw it on sale for $25 and $50 (professional)

I have a voodoo tactical "Ultimate Sniper" drag bag and love it. Has back pack straps as well as a standard strap for throwing over the shoulder. Holds two rifles and two pistols as well as having about 10 other pockets for mags and gear. Also has adjustable straps on the inside for tying down your rifles so they dont move inside the bag..You could prolly prone out on it but i would just roll a standard shooting mat up and strap it to the bottom of the bag..Inpaid 110 bucks online from Barre's Army Surplus, its www.vtarmynavy

So, for the most part I think NcStar makes crap, and I'm a little embarrassed to even be endorsing one of their products, but this is pretty nice (http://www.amazon.com/VISM-NcStar-Rifle-Case-Shooting/dp/B003OBGI3A/ref=pd_sbs_sg_1). Especially for $60-$75. I bought this hesitantly, and completely expected it to suck and send it back, but I've been using this a lot for the last 6 months or so, and I'm very satisfied, especially for the price. I'm not saying it's as nice as some of the high end bags, but it's much better than I expected.

It's a good "bag", but that's it. Might as well be called a soft case, imo. Once you use it as a shooting bag you see it's missing a lot of small things that would make it a snipers/precision bag. One of the big things is not having to carry a separate shooting mat, using your bag as a mat is nice. Then if you're doing that, having compartments laid out for access when shooting on it is ideal. Ammo pouch, dope book compartment, and so on.

I also had one of the pull cords on the zipper come off. Seems that if I put the bag through some hard use it might fall apart.

I also have the Voodoo Tactical drag bag+mat. Its nice but can't be locked because it has non-metal thongs on the zippers.

I don't care if it can be locked or not, that's the least of my worries for a drag bag.

It's an issue for me. I have a pickup and have to transport in the cab.

Other than that, it's a good bag and I'm real happy with it.

Ive heard great reports on the Voodoo tactical bags... but I myself might just try a Cabelas drag bag. Seems really sturdy and affordable for the money...

I'm lucky; my son is a USMC Scout/Sniper, and he gets me GI drag bags. I love them.

Those are some good points. Especially when humping up the mountain or to a remote site. Easier to just carry one instead of two. :43: Plus you probably get what you pay for. I might have to look at some of the more pricier ones to save in the long run.

Eberlestock. Why drag it when it can be on your back?
