Hazard4 Take Down Sling Pack Review

Ever since I started training with a rifle, I’ve noticed that my trips to the range usually involve me carrying several heavy, bulky bags. A standard range bag used to be sufficient to transport a handgun and ammunition, along with water and other field gear. Add a rifle to that mix and along with it comes a long gun case. Somehow, there never seems to be room in either for my water bottle, so I end up carrying that separately. Now usually, I don’t mind hauling all of that stuff around – it’s not as if it’s very far from the parking lot to the firing line.

I’d been carrying the Hazard4 Kato to work for a while. It worked well on days when I only needed to take my usual EDC stuff, or as a carry-on when I had to get on a plane. I liked its functionality and the arrangement of compartments. But the Kato was a little too small if I needed to pack papers, books or files.
