Oops! Skydiving flashback!

It is amazing that a skydiving rig, harness and container, is sewed together with thread and various parts are closed with velcro.

I donít have a range backpack per se, but I have a 5.11 range bag that I have used for the last 7 years or so and it has not shown any wear. I load it up, sometimes very heavily. Today I had it at a 3 gun match with 150 rounds of 12 ga., 200 rounds of 9mm, and 250 rounds of 5.56. plus multiple magazines and my pistol.
I also have a couple of their backpacks that I have used at the range and for travel and never had an issue.

I'm cheap and don't worry about name brands most of the time. I use an Ozark Trail backpack from Wally World, about $15. If it wears out I'll buy another. Also use an AWP tool bag from Lowe's for ammo, about $10.
