ESS Range Bag

Elite Survival Systems (ESS) is now shipping their new Loadout range bag. This new range bag is designed with plenty of cargo space and useful features such as MOLLE slots and PALS webbing on pockets. The Loadout bag’s dimensions are 17 inches long by 10 inches high by 11 inches wide. It features resistant heavy-duty hardware and large YKK zippers. 

Conceived with ruggedness and durability in mind, the body of the bag is built with a combination of 1050-denier nylon and closed-cell foam padding to keep your gear and ammunition safe. The bottom of the Loadout bag has luggage rails attached for extra rigidity and durability on uneven surfaces. The main carry handles feature a wrap-around Velcro pad to make carrying the Loadout bag easier. The bag’s main compartment can hold up to four different handguns and their accessories and ammunition in the adjacent pull out storage compartment.

The main compartment has a specially designed lid that unzips and then lies flat to make the interior contents easily accessible. While lying flat, this lid can also be used as a gun mat to protect the finishes on firearms. Finally, the lid also has a built-in document pocket for papers or targets. The Loadout also comes standard with pouches for AR-15 pattern magazines in addition to pouches for pistol magazines and eye and ear protection. A removable dump pouch is also included which can come in handy collecting spent brass or keeping live rounds together in between shooting drills. A water bottle pocket is also built into the exterior of the bag. 

Elite Survival System’s Loadout range bag retails with an MSRP of $160. Currently this range bag is either available in black or coyote tan. For any additional information on the Loadout range bag and other products sold by Elite Survival Systems, please visit their website at
