Heading to the range can be a hassle. Especially when you’re bringing more than one gun, you can end up walking out the door with multiple cases and bags just to hold all of your ammunition and supplies. There have been a number of bags and cases marketed to make that problem go away, providing one convenient bag to carry all of your guns and gear in a self-contained package that you can just grab and go. One of the best bags I’ve ever come across is the padded rifle case offered by Voodoo Tactical . . .

For years I’ve been using a drag bag I bought online to haul all my guns and gear to the range, and while it seemed perfect at the time, the shine has definitely come off the rose. The pockets are too small, the interior isn’t padded, and the material is so flimsy that it’s starting to rip. I was in the market for a new bag anyway, but I didn’t think that I would be handed something like this as a replacement.

Starting from the outside, the pouches are relatively large and easy to use. There’s a patch of velcro to keep the pouches closed, but if that’s not secure enough for your liking each pouch also comes with a buckle to really cinch it down. The middle pouch is the biggest, with enough space for about six 50 round boxes of 9mm ammunition or other assorted and sundry items. The side pockets are just about the perfect size for three standard length AR-15 magazines or one SIG Sauer P226, and feature a central divider for dividing your stuff accordingly.

Not enough space? No problem! There’s a generous patch of MOLLE webbing on either side of the main pouches that offers sufficient space for your various attachments. personally I’ve thrown a couple of dump pouches on there to act as additional pouches, but you could also put magazine pouches or other items on there that you prefer.

The case has a small(ish) compartment right behind the pouches that’s just big enough for the upper receiver of an AR-15 rifle. I’ve used this many times to bring my 5.56 upper along with me when I have the 300 BLK upper on my SBR, as it keeps it nice and secure while traveling. There’s also a couple pouches for documents and such (if you want to keep a copy of your NFA paperwork handy, for example) and some substantial padding separating it from the main compartment. There are also two compartments for handguns, the openings of which are held closed by more velcro.

Inside the bag there’s room for two rifles to be securely carried, with pockets to place the muzzle and the buttstock as well as straps to keep the guns secure on either side of the compartment. Between the two guns is a hefty sheet of padding that will keep them from rubbing together and scratching the paint. I know some of you Rambo types don’t care about getting your guns all scratched up, but I prefer to keep my guns in the best condition possible, paint included.

The bag comes with carrying handles, and also some helpful straps on the back that let you wear it like a backpack. Especially if you have a heavy load to carry or other cases to bring, it’s nice to be able to strap your guns to your back and keep your hands free. The straps are comfortable and padded, but I did notice that there were a few times when the buckles came loose when carrying a particularly heavy load.

The bag is pretty darn good. It’s well built, has some great options, and performs well in its stated goal of keeping your guns safely encased in a soft and squishy protective shell when going from your house to the range. Personally, I’m pretty impressed with the quality and the functionality. Even compared to other cases, such as Uncle Mike’s “assault” bag, it holds its own for its price.

I think I might have to buy another one of these . . .

  1. I use a case just like this for my saiga 12. The front center pouch is the perfect size for my 20 round drum magazine. Overall I’m very happy with mine

  2. I have owned this case for my AR sine this past June. I love it! Padding is great. Lots of straps and pockets. Highly Recommended!

  3. I had a couple foreign mil friends that wanted to go to the shooting range, I had a bunch of rifles, shotguns and handguns and assorted ammo and mags in my truck. Got pulled over and had the most interesting conversation with the police.

    Some of my rifles wont fit in their cases. Cop gave me the “wtf?” face.

  4. I own one of these & love it! However, I recently picked up a Drago 2 rifle case and was suprised to find it almost an exact clone (design and quality) of the Voodoo Tactical. And I saw it today at $69.95 at my local Academy Sports.

    • Awesome, was going to post about my drago as well, damn near a clone of this bag. Got it a Cheaper Than Crap before they went all turd sandwich during gunpocalypse and it was cheaper than the Voodoo and thats why I got it..

  5. I have this very case and I like it a lot – with 1 glaring exception. On the 2nd use of the backpack straps, the d-ring at the left shoulder pulled out (stitching came undone). I had 2 ARs in the case – no ammo, nothing else – so I don’t think it was an unreasonable load. several attempts to connect with VooDoo Tactical’s customer service went without response from them. I ended up taking it to my local shoe repair guy to get it fixed.

    I still like the case but am a bit dissatisfied with their customer service and have questions about long-term durability.

  6. If you want the same bag of the same quality for less, then look no further than Condor. I have dozens of Condor products and they have never failed me. I have a Condor bag that is literally identical to the Voodoo Tactical Bag reviewed above except for two things; it doesn’t have the MOLLE on the sides, but the three top pouches are secured by MOLLE, so you could replace them with something else if you wanted. It also comes in about $15 – $20 cheaper than the Voodoo Tactical one. I love Condor’s stuff. Also, Condor doesn’t put any silly logos all over their stuff like Blackhawk! Voodoo, and Maxpedition.

  7. I think they make a single rifle case like this that Sig slaps their name on. Had mine since June and it has served me well. The mid sized pocket on mine has 2 velcro pockets that each can fit a handgun and a few mags, which is a nice feature.

  8. That looks identical to the bag that came with my Sig M400. I can vouch for using the smaller pockets for pistols, as the last time out I brought 4 pistols each with a spare mag, 3-30 Rd AR mags & M400 rifle.

  9. I own one as well, best bag I ever used. Loaded with AR’s and magazines for each it can get heavy, I wear mine as a back pack and it’s really comfortable. Look around, I was able to get mine for under a $100 on Amazon.

  10. I liked this bag when I saw it online. I ended up buying a Tactical Performance bag for $50 bucks. It holds my AR and 930 SPX along with my pistol, a bunch of magazines and a few other extras. With two more molle bags I can hold all of my ammo and shotgun shell caddies for a 3 gun match. The shoulder straps would be nice but I think I can manage.

  11. Bought a Drago case just like this and love it. I only wish I had gotten the Longer case 42″ i think, cause the short carbine length one will ONLY hold carbines and pretty much only if they have a telescoping stock or a shorter barrel than 16″(what my AR barrel length is).

    Awesome Bag, the pouches work GREAT with the cinch straps and buckles, got one of my dark angel kits riding on the front.

  12. I have the PSA equivalent (1 long gun only) that I scored on sale for $100 with 6 Pmags included. I love it. Very durable.

  13. I picked up one of these, in olive drab, at a local gun show a few months ago for $60. It’s awesome, really well made, has a TON of room and I’ll certainly buy another in the coming year. Well, well worth the price I paid.

  14. i have 2 of them, bought them bout 2 yrs ago. use them everytime i go out and the are still unripped. the padding held up great as well

  15. I’ve had one for about a year now, lots of room for guns and ammo. If you’re carrying it on your back, use both straps and not just one. While leaving the range one day, the stitching that holds the metal ring at the bottom gave out on mine. But I guess that’s what I get for helping a friend and carrying one of his bags. Still a great bag that I use, but ammo get put in a range bag now so the load is lighter on gun case.

    • So that’s at least three people within 20 comments that have had issues with the straps coming loose or the stitching coming undone. Sounds like a place that Voodoo needs to seriously work on their QC.

      • Voodoo Tactical has a lifetime manufacturers warranty against defects. If you got a Voodoo Tactical case with stitching and/or strap problems you should send it back to the dealer that you bought it from. We are an authorized dealer of Voodoo Tactical because we like and use the gear. If you bought it from us, send it back and we will make it right. Most people enjoy their weapons case from Voodoo Tactical.

  16. This exact bag is sold under many different names and most cost significantly less. I found one with the M&P logo at my local Big5 for around $60. My biggest gripe on this bag is that it does not fit long guns, anything longer than a short barreled shotgun (18″ barrel) will not fit.

    • LAIndependentThinker – Thanks for your comment. This “style” of bag is made by many other companies. There are cheaper versions and more expensive versions, but this bag by Voodoo Tactical is a great quality at a fair price. We cant really speak to other brands, but we like the quality of Voodoo Tactical and stand by the lifetime warranty.

      I hope you are happy with your M&P case, if you need a longer weapon case, you can check out the 60″ case.

      I put together a rifle case buying guide that compares the sizes of the cases available.

  17. I needed a new case for a recent range trip as my other two are with guns I have at a gunsmiths. I read this review on Jan 29th and ordered it with 2 day shipping, in my place by Jan 31st, and out on the range Feb 1st. Put my Mini 14, Glock 22, Ruger LCP, all my mags, ammo, targets, and hearing and eye protection into the case. Everything fit great. We added my buddies AR-15 when I got to his place. The backpack straps felt good and distributed the weight perfectly. People at the range commented all day about how cool the case is, so I told them where I read the review, and many said they’d check it out. Even at $95.99 this case is well worth the money. Thanks for the tip, and keep the great reviews and articles coming.

  18. Question to anyone who owns this case. It states that there are pockets in which to fit the barrel and the other for the buttstock. Are these two pockets fixed or can they be switched? My concern is I like to carry my rifle with the optics mounted and up towards the carry handles so if you drop your case you dont break your optics.
