2 Vets Arms and LBT Collaborate to Offer a New Covert Rifle Pack

q13_3672f

The Covert Rifle Bag (CRB) was developed through a collaborative effort between 2 Vet Arms and London Bridge Trading with the goal of making a bag that doesn’t look like a rifle bag, yet is capable of carrying a full-sized, broken down AR (16″ barrel). The CRB is a kit, and consists of two main parts: the rifle insert and the pack.

I have seen this bag and I have had an opportunity to use this bag and I am impressed. It is well designed and the construction I saw on four different samples was superb. If the packs itself wasn’t nice enough, the rifle insert is a great touch, that allows you to transport and store the carbine outside of the pack.

The rifle insert is internally lined with Velcro loop and comes with hook backed rifle insert tie downs which secure the rifle components with nylon straps. Additionally, there is a hook-backed medium magazine pouch which stores up to five STANAG 30 rd magazines. External carrying straps allow the rifle bag to be carried around as a separate unit from the pack.

The pack features heavy duty, wide straps designed to distribute the load well across the shoulders. The back consists of a breathable, padded mesh for comfort, and full-length zippers next to the back on either side reveal a laptop/iPad compartment and concealed carry pouch accessible while wearing the pack. Yes, you can actually access a sidearm while wearing the pack. The front of the pack features multiple zippered pockets and a Velcro loop pad for identification and/or morale patches. The 2 front compartment zipper form a “V” to signify LBT’s partnership with 2 Vets Arms Company.

As with the rifle insert, the pack is also internally lined with loop, built to be compatible with LBT’s Velcro admin pouches, as with the Arc’teryx Khard bags but will also accept other Velcro-backed pouches. This allows the CRB to function as a MASCAL medical bag if the rifle inserts are removed. It also does a great job as a day pack, regardless of whether the rifle insert is used, or the internal pouch setup.

I know a few other colors have been kicked around but according to 2 Vets Arms, at this point, Woodland is not happening.

While these were manufactured by LBT Inc, they were designed and built exclusively for Vets Arms.

    That’s pretty slick!

    This bag/case looks like it has a ton of features and potential. I’ve been using First Spear Skirmisher for the past year or two and thought the securing straps inside for the upper and lower were a bit lacking. I like the design of this bag, and the fact that you can use it with or without the case insert for the range. Depending on the price point, I may have to look into one of these.

    • Mike D says:

      At $325 for the bag, insert, securing straps and a medium mag pouch it’s cheaper than the Tactical Tailor Phantom Trekker SBR Bag. Not quite as “discrete” in my opinion, but still a sturdy and compact range bag option.

    Does that means that LBT will be using Kryptek patterns also? I remember that poll they made some time ago asking customers for choosing a new pattern to add to their line.
