This review is from: UTG Ranger Field Bag (Sports) After serving in the military, I have specific tastes in my equipment. I have also found out that it’s ideal to handle an item before purchasing because sometime a picture doesn’t convey poor-quality construction. After I took this out of the packaging and rummaged through it all, I was content. The bag is bigger than expected, about 34 x 14 x 14 inches or so. This is now my GO bag and I have it stuffed with my size 16 boots, sneakers, entrenching tool, camping stove, toilet paper, MREs, jerky, money, survival tent, etc etc etc etc. While it’s crammed to the gills it has cross-straps and mongo zippers so I am very comfortable with it weighing as much as it does. I literally combined the contents of 2 smaller GO bags into this and threw the boots and campstove on top. Well, ok, I’m a careful packer, but you get the point. One of my favorite features about this bag is how the chest straps tuck under flaps with velcro when not in use and become invisible, leaving carry handles which are very sturdily attached. I yanked on them for a bit to make sure. Since I have ammo and propane in the bag, I don’t want the handles tearing off. There’s an internal document pouch made out of clear plastic with a velcro folding seal, looks completely waterproof. There are big carry handles on each end so you and your buddy can carry a body or several gold bars between you. With this on my back and my various weapons distributed about my body, I can hardly wait for the zombie attack to begin so I can be the last (living) guy on earth. 2013 UPDATE:Update: Returned from my UK trip somewhat disappointed. I’ve put this bag through a lot of abuse but what I could not do, baggage handlers did over the course of just FOUR flights. There are / were 8 small rubberized floor bumpers on the bottom of the bag when I left. I returned home with only 4 remaining, 2 exposed screw heads and 2 jagged holes about the size of a quarter where the others had been totally torn away. I’d pay cash to know what the baggage handlers were doing on the days when they were loading my bag. UTG would do better to avoid these and instead double the thickness of the material on the bottom and add some other puncture-proof reinforcing for the times when a fully-loaded bag is dropped on rocky ground. I still recommend this as a purchase because I’ve now had it for several years and put it through a lot of abuse. However, my version of abuse (which includes blowing s*** up) is obviously nowhere near anything a baggage handler can do. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (6) Reply 53 of 64 people found the following review helpful Doesn’t hold up to what it’s made for!, August 26, 2012 By Amazon Customer – This review is from: UTG Ranger Field Bag (Sports) If this bag were used as it’s name suggests, a Ranger Field bag, it would be destroyed in no time at all. I see all these other reviews and I’m wondering if you people are actually using these things or babying them or storing them in a closet. I’ve used my bag for 3 flights and 6 camping trips. After the first time I used it, (which was just a car drive, 3 months of storage, then a return car ride) it had lost 2 of it’s feet. Next trip, flight from Pennsylvania to California: A tear in the bottom, one more foot missing and a zipper for one side pocket start to detach. Return flight: second tear in side of bag and another foot missing. Plus the little tacks (yes, tacks!) That hold the feet on were poking out and sliced my hand open. Glad none of the baggage handlers got hurt otherwise I probably would have gotten sued. Third trip, week long camping trip. New holes, yada-yada-yada… It goes on from there. You get what you pay for usually, but this is one time when I think I actually got less than what I paid for. Cheap quality, dangerous at least to your hands. I will say this; it is a great concept for a field bag. If Maxpedition were to make one, or these guys made a better one I would pay more money for it. As is, don’t waste your money if you plan on actually using it for it’s design purpose, it will fail. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (7) Reply 14 of 15 people found the following review helpful Great Gear Hauler, August 1, 2011 By MICHAEL A BATTERSHELL – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: UTG Ranger Field Bag (Sports) This gear bag was used on a week long camping/biking adventur and I stuffed it with 50 pounds of gear. The over all design is great and the fact that you can wear it as a back pack makes transporing this much weight a little easier. There are heavy duty zippers and cross cinches that hold it all together even when bursting at the seams as the week went on and items were no longer packed as neatly. The bag was thrown from the back of a semi-truck every day and it held up just fine. The only reason it did not rate 5 stars is the little plastic feet that the manufactuer puts on the bottom of the bag. They serve no reason and by the end of the week 3 of the 6 were torn off and the bottom of the bag was damaged. It would be much better without any feet. After my trip I had to cut the interior of the bag open and remove all of the parts that were broken and causing more damage to the bottom of the bag. I then used high quality duct-tape to seal the holes from the inside layer and then again to repair the cut made on the interior liner. I would buy it again but would remove the feet first, but it would be better if they were left out all together. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
