Normally, I am a little hesitant of any bags designed for CCW and general use together. However over the past few years as a business owner I have found that CCW on the body is not always the best option, here is where the Elite Survival System Avenger Gunpack comes in.
Do you find yourself carrying a bunch of gear on a daily basis like I do? On any given day I have my Rock Island Armory Baby Rock in .380, two magazines, a pocket knife, wallet, phone, business cards, square reader, and a ton of other stuff to carry with me.
I used to carry a briefcase, but lets be realistic, they are big, bulky and not very easy to access in a tough, stressful situation. So the Elite Survival Systems Avenger Gunpack Gen 2, which I have been carrying for a while now is a great solution for the problem.
The Avenger GunPack is made of heavy-duty nylon with very heavy duty zippers that don’t snag when you need to open or close them. It has a top carry handle, adjustable shoulder strap, and an Omni-Carry Belt panel so you can carry it either vertically or horizontally, or it can be added to your go to MOLLE system.
It has plenty of storage compartments inside for everything from your cell phone, to your wallet and even has built in holsters for anything up to a compact semi-auto handgun and another holster for a magazine in its main compartment.
The holsters have Velcro so you can remove the entire unit if you so choose. A lot of people would call this a man purse, but honestly its a lifesaver for those of us who carry on the go all day and need a system to accommodate all of our gear and still have a great place for a firearm and magazine.
Even if it’s just used as a truck bag for a backup gun and accessories the Avenger GunPack is a great way to go. I have tried a ton of options over the years for this, but this one will stay in my carry routine permanently.
It’s quite easy to just toss everything in this bag and just go. Even my OWB Holster fits into the bag so if I get to a destination and decide to OWB carry when I’m there, I can then put the holster and gun on my belt and be good to go.
I tried the belt carry option with the bag and while the bag is on the large size, it wasn’t uncomfortable to wear. I could easily see someone attaching it to their belt or the MOLLE system on a backpack for all-day carry.
The front zippered pocket is my go-to for my wallet and keys, and the secondary large compartment is large enough to carry a Motorola G7 smartphone with a hybrid case, so of course it would fit almost any larger smart phone.
For those of us who need a carry solution that doesn’t involve OWB or IWB carry, The Elite Survival Systems Avenger GunPack is a great solution for all day carry everyday. Toss it in the truck with you and be assured your weapon and spare mags are secure, yet still easy to access with the heavy duty zipper system that absolutely will function 100 percent every time.
Carry it on your shoulder when out and about, or use the built-in top carry handle to tote it around town with you, secure in the knowledge that you have quick, reliable, easy access to your firearm if the need arises while maintaining 100 percent concealment that no one would even think houses a firearm.

I have been carrying this for several weeks in a high impact environment, at work, and at home. My dog even grabbed it once and it still looks brand new. The zippers function flawlessly and the heavy duty nylon is highly durable and will not fail you.
