This mat was designed and tested by military and law enforcement snipers and is intended for use by their fellow professionals.
The outside offers a convenient carry handle and a full backpack-like shoulder harness so you can easily carry your mat and your rifle out to the firing line or deep into the field. Additional straps are provided so you can attach a backpack (like our Matrix pack) to the top this bag for additional carrying capacity.
Of course, being a drag bag, it has a drag handles on the nose, but the handles store into convenient pouches when not in use. The backpack straps also have an integral storage pouch. Multiple exterior surfaces have MOLLE Webbing so you can add additional MOLLE compatible pouches or accessories.
Un-snap the securing straps and unzip the heavy duty self-healing zipper, and the real fun begins. The bag unfolds into three sections, plus a fold-out leg panel at one end and a fold-out extension on the front to keep your muzzle blast from throwing up dust and giving away your position or obscuring your sight picture.
At the top of the mat are anti skid pads that offer a solid platform for your bipod. Large Velcro areas allow you to position your accessories where you want them, including one of our ammo pouches or our sniper data book. A zippered pouch for accessories and tools is also provided.
When you are ready to stow your weapon away, there are two padded retention straps and a padded muzzle protector to help lock your weapon into place. Simply strap your weapon into place (holds a rifle up to 48 inches long), refold the mat, zip it up and synch the straps. Your gun will be locked into place and surrounded by thick, impact-absorbing closed sell foam.
