Nifty Upcoming ATB (Ammo Transfer Bag) from Could Defensive

Having been working on creating what is to me the “ultimate general purpose carbine,” I stumbled across a small company named Cloud Defensive as I was looking for the best method to mount and employ a Surefire flashlight. Their LCS is a nifty little solution to the infamous wire management problem that plagues weapons when mounting up lights, lasers, etc. (For those interested, check that out here).

However, another product really caught my attention, as I have currently been carrying loose ammo to the range in the little sack that came with my range bag. It works, but its not an elegant solution. Turns out, Could Defense has another nifty item up their sleeve, the Ammo Transport Bag in partnership with Zuly Nylon Gear.

In short, its a purpose build bag designed for, you guessed it, ammunition transport. However, they go about it the right way making sure its right-sized for longer range trips carrying 600 rounds of 9mm loose, before the magazines or 400 rounds of 5.56, likewise before loaded magazines. Its small enough to be thrown in existing range transportation at ~5″ tall, by 7.5″ wide, by 5″ deep. To protect the ammo, its lined with closed-cell foam.

From there, its contructed of all the usual high-end materials including 1000D nylon, YKK zippers, etc. and reinforced handles for long-term lugging. As a bonus, the top flap has handgun magazine storage for 5 loaded mags.

Like I said, nifty.

Retail is set at $55.00 Sadly, the first batch of the Ammo Transport Bag has been listed as Sold Out.

Count me in for a couple when they are available!

    Uhm, this should be obvious, but if you reload, save the foam/seperators/whatever from commercial ammo boxes (which you can find easily enough in the discard bin at any range) & put your reloads in those...

    Sorry but there's no way I'm paying $55 for an "ammo bag" when a $3 fanny pack from GreatWal-Mart will do the job (plus, uh, it's a fanny pack so you can carry it on you).

    & while we're at it, the best "shell pouch" for skeet shooting is a $2 nail apron from construction supply shops. They're even compartmentalized so you can keep your loads on one side & empty hulls on the other if you so choose (e.g. if your shotgun is SbS/OU so you can police your hulls as you reload).

    I was more interested in the light mounting problem than an over priced ammo carry bag.
