Savior Equipment is looking to make your everyday range bag just a little more affordable with their new Urban Warfare Bags and Ultimate Guitar Case. Whether it’s a bug out bag or just something to haul your rifles to the range, they’ve got you covered. Savior Equipment was kind enough to send over a pair of rifle bags and their discreet carrying case for review.
Urban Warfare Double Rifle Bag (42”)
The smaller of the two cases was this 42” Urban Warfare Double Rifle Case in Flat Dark Earth. It’s that just-right size for your mid-length AR-pattern rifles and has plenty of added storage built-in.
The rear of the case features very useful backpack straps that come in handy when going up flights of stairs. I like the additional lift handle built-in at the front of the case. There’s also a very useful extra lift handle and a nice additional clear ID pocket.
The zippers are sturdy enough to handle any additional weight and feature locking Zippers for added security.
The large front storage compartments are one of my favorite features of this bag. They’re large enough to accommodate your banana-shaped AK mags, or neatly store up to five 30 round AR magazines.
Also up front is a convenient fold-down double pistol compartment.
The velcro secured pockets are large enough to accommodate your full-size handguns. I also liked the mesh inner pocket that lets you visually double-check that you remembered to bring pistol mags and other accessories.
Inside the case, your rifle is secured by two velcro straps and a nice padded divider. The inside of the case is made of 600D Polyester instead of Nylon that better resists heat without melting.
I found the 42″ bag to be the best all-around size for me. The size was better suited to my more commonly fired rifles and SBR’s. Additionally, you can remove the padded center divider if you want additional space inside the bag.
Last but not least, is the laser-cut grid on the front of the case. The flush cuts are simple but out of the way with less tendency to snag unlike most MOLLE gear I own. Behind the grid on each corner is an additional pocket for any other range accessories (or snacks) you might need.
Urban Warfare Double Rifle Bag (55”)
Dwarfing the 42″ bag in size is the much larger, heavy-duty, 55″ double rifle bag in 1000D Cordura Black Multicam fabric. While similar to the 42″ bag, there are some important differences to note.
The 55″ bag features an additional center strap for securing heavier rifles like this 21 pound (as configured) RPR Magnum in 300 PRC.
In the 55″ the fold-down double pistol compartment is slightly larger and features D-Rings that aid in opening the velcro pistol pouches.
The Black Multicam bag also features a heavy-duty YKK Zipper, UTX Buckles, and an additional shoulder strap.
The larger 55″ bag has an additional chest strap for longer, more comfortable backpack hauling. Trust me, if you decide to backpack carry two full-size rifles, you’ll use this. Both bags also feature a zippered compartment to store your backpack straps when not in use.
Ultimate Guitar Case
Sometimes having that tactical image can cause some unwanted attention. For those looking for the ultimate in discretion, look no further than the Ultimate Guitar Case.
The Guitar Case features two outside carry handles and six latches for secure transport. There are even two external but subtle locking points.
The small roller wheels on the bottom are a nice addition. I wouldn’t drag these through the gravel and expect them to survive, but they make walks to and from your car much easier.
Inside the case are three 1.5″ foam inserts. Using the middle piece of foam as a buffer, you could easily cut-and-swap the top two layers, and use the case for multiple loadouts.
Case foam is easy to cut with a hot wire knife (or other methods) once you’ve decided what the case will contain. The convoluted foam top has just enough give that I can close the case with 30rd magazines resting on the uncut foam. This has allowed me to use the case, while I figure out what accessories should accompany this M16.
The 42″ Urban Warfare case has a starting price tag of $68.99. At a price point this low I was both intrigued, and skeptical at how well these bags would hold up. Over a month of hard use later, and they’re still in perfect shape. Sort of like that somewhat unstoppable JanSport backpack you had as a kid, these bags are tough, and if they get lost or damaged it’s probably your fault.
The Ultimate Guitar Case hasn’t seen as much use during the past month, but I do enjoy how it never gets a second look. At $149.99 I think it’s priced correctly. It’s not the heaviest or most durable rifle case, but at this price point, that’s a given. If you’re looking for the last hard case you’ll ever buy, I’d look elsewhere. The Guitar Case is that just right under-the-radar look that keeps prying eyes away. If you live in a metropolitan area and like to shoot, I would seriously consider picking one of these up for your trips to the range.
Overall Savior Equipment has far exceeded my expectations. They’ve been great at responding to my product questions, and everything has a Lifetime Warranty. So if you need a range bag, there’s a new kid on the block.
