The bag can be filled with either from the ultra-light Git-Lite or the traditional House Fill to match your need for a stable shooting position. The bag measures 8X6X1 inches, and weighs 8 ounces when filled with GIt-Lite or 1 pound with House Fill. MSRP for this bag is $49.99 for the Multicam version or $69.95 in Coyote Brown.

The bag is available in two sizes, two color choices and two fill material choices. MSRP for this bag begins at $59.95

The MDT Peanut Shooting Bag is a tribute to the versatile Quarter Horse, Peanuts, and the Peanut shooting bag mirrors adaptability and relentless spirit.
