Tactical Operations - Drag Bag
Well I decided to go ahead and purchase a "manufactured" drag bag/carry case for my bravo-51. The
drag bag I currently have is exactly that, a drag bag that I hand construct when I build my ghillies.
I wasn't looking too hard for one when out of the blue Tactical Operations asked if I wanted to
review one of their new drag bags. So, the timing was just right, so I agreed.
Like all the higher end drag bags on the market today, the tac-ops bag has plenty of external storage
space with large pockets, and several of them. There are several different sizes and storage
arrangements that make it very functional. Also, there are several loops and contact points to
attach camouflage (natural veg, burlap, netting, etc etc).
The underside of the bag is lined with strips of heavy duty canvas to help while dragging. All
pocket flaps (on the underside) are arranged so they do not catch on anything while being dragged.
The shooting matt is stored in a large pocket on the underside, and there are shoulder straps
with quick detach buckles. The straps store in their own pockets for when you are dragging the
The Tac-Ops bag is several inches shorter then other bags like Eagle. It was designed to fit a
rifle with a barrel 26" max. My Bravo has a 22" barrel and it fit well, and it appears that a
24" barreled rifle is perfect, and a 26" will fill it all. Of course, rifles with a LOP greater then
standard and a long barrel it will be border line. The really nice part of these bags is that
there is a large barrel housing/holder. This prevents the barrel from flopping around, and
protects it nicely. This has been a complaint of some people with the Eagle bags. Overall, the
fit was great for my bravo and a few other rifles I tried. Just be careful if you have an overly
My overall impressions of the bag were good enough to just buy the bag that was sent for eval.
The price is a bit spendy at around $300, but hey, you get what you pay for these days. The
construction quality is excellent, and a lot of thought went into the bag to make sure it was
a functional bag for its intended use. I'll keep everyone posted on the long term durability
of the bag as I use it.
