Hogue expanded its lineup of gear bags to include a number of options in the popular flat dark earth finish, giving shooters the opportunity to have gun cases and gear packs that are finished in the color necessary for their success in the field.

Hogue took a different approach with their line of gear accessories. Rather than rebranding another company's bag, Hogue launched its own division of textile creators and tries to provide high-quality gear that is proven through design and field testing. Each bag and gun case sold by the company is made in the USA and is checked for quality.

A number of gear-bag options are available from the company. Hogue offers single-rifle cases in four different lengths, starting from 34 inches long and ranging up to 46 inches long. Each single-rifle bag offered by the company features a total depth of 10 inches in order to accommodate optics and other mounted accessories. The company also offers double-rifle bags with the same length and height accommodation, only sized to fit two guns side-by-side with a padded layer separating the two firearms.

Hogue also offers a couple of specialty rifle bags. The company sells an extra-small rifle bag that is specifically designed for SBRs, AR pistols and AK pistols. These bags measure 28 inches in overall length. In addition, a large BFG bag is sized particularly to fit rifles chambered in .50 BMG, and these bags measure 64 inches in overall length.

The company also gives users a wide range of options for pistol bags, ranging from the smallest option of 6 inches tall and 10 inches long to the largest option of 10 inches tall and 16 inches long. The company's medium and large pistol bags also ship with a separate pouch for spare magazines. The medium bag comes with a four-pocket magazine pouch, while the large bag features a six-pocket magazine pouch.

The suggested retail price on Hogue rifle bags start at $134.95, and the company's pistol bags retail starting at a suggested price of $19.95.
