SBR’s are cool, but they don’t do you much good gathering dust in your gun safe at home. If you want a way to carry around your SBR (or large format pistol), then the new STEALTH SBR backpack from Elite Survival Systems might be worth checking out.
It’s a compact bag that doesn’t obviously look like a gun bag which is nice if you’re adding an SBR to your EDC gear. It comes in black or heather gray. I think the gray is lower profile and less “tactical” looking, but black is always popular so it’s probably a good option.
Despite looking like a conventional day pack the STEALTH SBR pack is loaded with dedicated features like specific gun compartments, built-in mag pouches, Velcro and MOLLE attachment points for other gear, and a slot for an optional ballistic panel. The ballistic panel adds $130 to the cost if you decide to go that way.
Here’s what Elite has to say about their new pack:
“A smaller, streamlined version of our STEALTH discreet rifle backpack with handgun compartment, the STEALTH SBR covert rifle backpack has a discreet, modern appearance with a robust tactical interior. The STEALTH SBR has an internal length of 20 inches to accommodate most short-barreled rifles, and is built with ample MOLLE/hook and loop attachment points for carrying magazines and accessories.
The new design offers a dedicated firearm compartment and adds a full accessory compartment with built-in magazine pouches. A dense padding between the compartments protects the firearm from contents of the accessory compartment. The lighter color of the new interior allows for easier identification of accessories and small parts.”
