5 min read
The first thing you notice about this bag is it looks useful-simple and to the point. There are a various compartments placed around the bag, that can be used for your handguns, ammo and gear. It’s always difficult for a company to come up with the right combination of style, function, price and durability when catterering to so many diverse tastes. I think this range bag gets it right. Thanks to the guys at Optics Planet for providing us the bag.
I have a lot of bags at home. I’m always looking for the best bag for different events. For example, I might not want to do an all day range event, and I need a smaller bag for a short range excursion. A simple, box shaped bag should hold the basics needed: eyepro, earpro, gun, ammo, targets, batteries and a few other things. Right away, you will notice the pockets and MOLLE on the outside of the bag. The pockets are sufficient for storing most accessories and the MOLLE is always a plus for hanging gear. The dimensions of the bag are 40cm x 30cm x 20cm (15.75 x 11.8 x 7.87 inches). It’s priced at $145.99

Ulfhednar, a registered brand, is owned by the company Skytterlinken AS. The company is based in Kløfta, Norway, in the immediate proximity of the capital Oslo. We are developing equipment, clothing and weapons parts for hunting, long range and shooting sports in general. We are the largest supplier for shooting sports in Norway.​ Our relatively harsh Arctic climate makes us set extremely strict requirements for the materials used in our products. The same goes to our manufacturers and subcontractors.​ Hunting, outdoor activities and shooting sports stands strong among the Norwegians. Easy to understand since we possess such a wonderful environment with a diversity of wildlife in forests, mountains and fjords.​ Our users requires high quality equipment and good workability. Cold winters, wet falls and hot summers require a special set of equipment.

What is an Ulfhednar? “The Ulfhednar (pronounced Ulf-heth-nar) were a group of Viking warriors. They wore wolf skin, and their own skin was black-died. Like the Berserkers, they preformed chants and ritual prior to battle to get in a “Berserker Rage”. Through adrenaline they became much stronger and faster, became immune to pain, and bled less.”- Snorre Sturlason “Ynglinga Saga”

Let’s go over the bag. There are four sides of this bag, and then the top and the bottom sides of the bag.

Side 1: They placed a roomy pocket on the outside of the bag that runs its entire length. Looking inside, you’ll find six pistol magazine pockets, and a cusioned pad for placing your pistol on it. No one wants to drop their weapon on the grass or dirt, for any reason. The pad can be used as a work surface for small cleaning/repairs or for placing your firearm on it between shooting iterations. MOLLE on the outside of the bag can be used to affix a med kit or your eyepro pouch.

Side 2: They placed an ID tag pocket on the outside of the bag. I always find these to be useful; at times you may encounter someone who has the same brand and model bag that you do. It’s smart to label your gear. The pocket is slim; I use it to store my instruction booklets for electronic items when I first purchase them; great for referencing info when you forget steps in the action of the item.

Side 3: The bag utilizes two smaller pockets and inside the pockets are MOLLE stitched to the inner walls. The inside of each pocket utilizes soft padding. You can stuff more ammo boxes, or anything of equal size, in these pockets.

Side 4: The last side of the bag they’ve placed two, large YKK pulls on the zipper-pockets’ Excellent storage for small accessories such as batteries or ear plugs.

The top of the bag uses MOLLE, and the inside of the bag is spacious enough for storing the standard items you would carry for day range use. There is a removable walled pouch that helps simplify organization. I separate my inner compartment into three small sections. Typically, I like to break my spaces up for ammo and eyepro, extramags and holsters, and then earpro and gloves. I keep it simple; I dislike carrying more than needed. Of course, I pack differently for every circumstance, but I typically keep things simple.

This bag really is super versatile and useful for everything that I need to bring. There is a larger version of this bag, and it’s priced about $100.00 more, but I felt that what Ulfhednar gave me was perfect. Even the smaller bag had room for me to put snacks, such as nuts and food bars. Just adjust your loadout to suit the ocassion. Yes, you can bring along your cleaning supplies, lubricant, batteries, tools and any other small range bag essentials. This bag is roomy for a standard pistol practice at the range.  I like the small pads and the zipper pulls.

This bag is strong enough to carry more than 500+ rounds of ammo, and gear. The shoulder strap is a padded, ergonomic carrying strap with a non-slip material so it will stay snugged up against your shoulder. I gave the bag a try for the last two months. When I went out I loaded my bag to capacity. This means I normally bring 500 rounds of 9mm and if I shoot my carbine I load it with 250 rounds of 5.56. That’s the most that I’m willing to carry, because bags get heavy for the average sized man with that kind of loadout. Comfy and sturdy.

Ulfhednar, manufacturers some of the world’s finest equipment, clothing, and weapons parts for hunting, long-range shooting, and general sports use. They are staffed with experienced competition shooters and hunters who know how important this accessory item is. This bag can handle a light rain. Here in Virginia it can rain heavily during certain months. The bag isn’t waterproof but I think it could handle some H2O hitting it; it uses a durable water-resistant Cordura. It’s a solid bag. The quality manufacturing is there, as you should expect of good brands.  This bag is sturdier than other brands that offer similar goods, such as Condor.
