In my never ending quest for a better backpack; and yes I have a closet full of them as my backpack needs change, the below 511 Covrt 18 pack is now on my list.  The description of the pack is below from Amazon followed by its photo.  Upon eventual receipt I’ll do a review after I’ve had a chance to customize it to my specifications and break it in.  Most of my packs are very tactical looking so I decided I’d like to have one with a less tactical appearance but full of features that I know I might need.

The new 511 COVRT 18 is a bag built to blend in, yet go operational at a moment’s notice. And because blending in means not having the same color as everyone else on your team, the COVRT 18 is offered in five color combos: Asphalt/Black, Deep Moss Green/Black, Mantis Green/Dark Oak, Code Red/Steel Grey and True Navy/Asphalt.  When you need to be ready for anything, choose the COVRT 18. You’ll find everything you need in this lightweight pack including a hidden ambidextrous Weapons pocket, removable hidden agenda identification panel, concealed R.A.C. (Roll-down Assault Compartment) with web platform and Back-up Belt System compatibility, side mesh water bottle pockets and compression straps, admin pocket, internal and external organizer pouches, padded computer compartment sleeve with hook and loop retaining strap, external attachment points, sternum strap, a carry handle integrated into a yoke shoulder system, hydration compartment, internal, easy-access flex cuff channel and shoulder straps designed to work with future QuickTact accessories.


Whenever I take my handguns and shotguns to the range for practice; my range bag comes along as an essential piece of shooting gear.  Its purpose; to keep all my gear safely stored and together in one convenient, organized gear bag.  I’ve used a lot of range bags over the years but the one I find works best for my needs is the 511 Tactical Patrol Ready Bag.  It has convenient storage pockets for almost anything you need to bring with you and is sized properly to store whatever you need to ensure a proper and enjoyable range session.

Here’s what I keep in the various internal and external pockets.  Two water bottles, 9mm ammo in a molle pouch, 45ACP ammo in a separate molle pouch, pistol rugs, holsters, spare magazines, ear protection, gun cleaning equipment, first aid kit, targets, tape, 00 buck shotgun shells in molle pouches, shooting gloves, flashlight, spare batteries, fixed blade knife, bandanna, ball cap and a few other miscellaneous odds and ends.
