    Default Quck help please choose the best carry bag (not range bag)

    You guys posted links to good ones before in some threads but i cant find them with the search function. I am looking for something like a laptop bag, but more casual that I can carry around with my HK45c inside. something like the "Bauer Bag" if you know what I mean...

    Thanks a ton in advance...
    Thanks,

    This is the one I have. It is very well made.

    I can recommend the one below also for a bag that will actually be used for a laptop.

    I don't know what a Bauer bag is, so these may look too "tactical" for your taste. I like heavy duty, so they work well for me.

    I've been researching these in-depth. By far, the Hawkepaks bag has the best reviews and is the most "functional" in the sense of being a true tactical bag. The military issues these as the MA-52 field pack:

    There's also the Hawkepaks MA-62, which is the same as the above bag, only with mag-holders inside the bag to look less military:

    The Blackhawk, in my opinion, comes to a close second, as it wins in the aesthetics department and looks less menacing:

    I just carry a slim Italian leather messenger bag (to & from work, etc) purchased on Amazon.com. I just tried looking for it but it appears they don't carry it anymore. Very slim & actually half the size of a messenger bag (not big enough for a laptop tho). And the front pocket is a perfect fit for an M8. Not sure if a HK45c would fit though. And for a very small carry bag for the summer, casual carry I took nyeti's advice on the Packrat http://specopsbrand.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductID=19 I searched hi & low for the OD Green and finally found one.

    You guys have been a great help, thank you. So far, I am leaning on the Black Hawk Enhanced since i can put a laptop in it as well, and also getting the "Pack-Rat" that thing is really cool. If their are more ideas, keep them coming. No one has yet brought up the bags I was originally looking for but lost the links to.

    You'll like the Blackhawk. That bag is my get to bag. I keep my HK45c, two mags, flashlight, water, two dehydrated meals, knife, etc. in it. It goes on every trip with me.

    I am the king of these things, and have a bunch. The Eagle L/E courier bag is a good bet for factory done. I have several custom built bags from Extreme Gear Labs, with my favorite being the "Neville Bag". Everything was terrific until I found the American Kami S.H.I.I.T. bag. I just finished an article on it, and I have one of the first prototypes.............It is the absolut best of these bags out there. Mine is set up for an HK45C. They are very expensive (my ran around $500 bucks with all the add ons and custom work), but for working in the world I do, it is a necessary evil, and almost a required tool of the trade. There are pictures of this thing on Lightfighter forum and I would imagine on the Usual Suspect Network if anyone is a member on that one.

    99999 I may end up selling one or more of my EGL bags if you're interested. I have one that takes a large notebook, and the other should take a smaller laptop.

    +1 to that.
    This is the one I use with my 17" laptop. It's great because you don't have to take it off to access the holster pocket. Also you can slide it around in front of you if you need to sit down with it (bus, train, waiting room, etc.).

    I checked all these out and purchased the Eagle Courier Bag. seems a good fit, and is small enough that hopefully I will find lots of use for it. I will post pics of it and how it works with my CCW piece when i get it. Thanks everyone!
