As one of those shooters who often carries everything but the kitchen sink, having the right gear bag is a big deal. And the Safariland Convertible is the best one I’ve found so far. It can be worn as a backpack, and the second strap for backpack use stows out of sight if you’re just going to carry it over the shoulder, as I do.

It has a handy detachable 16x8x10-inch inner bag that features eight magazine pouches attached via hook and loop as well as adjustable dividers. On match days, I use it for ammo, spare mags and ear muffs. Tools, cleaning gear, drinks, snacks and more go into the 23x13x10-inch main bag. My competition rig handily attaches to quick-detach loops on the outside. When I’m not toting as much stuff, I leave the interior compartment inside the main bag and place the day’s pistols in the hook-and-loop pockets found in the interior of the main bag.

There are two end pockets—one zippered and a larger one that’s hook-and-loop fastened. The front full-size zipper pocket has a small zippered interior pocket just right for keys, phones and the like. The back of the bag has MOLLE slots for adding other stuff. One cool feature is the detachable dump pouch that clips to the outside. I use it all the time—for bits of trash, recovered brass and more. I’ve only begun to explore the flexibility the Safariland Convertible offers, but I already love it. Available in black, gray and tan.
