For those who are into the precision rifle community, we all know the importance of a rifle rear bag. Not only are they great for positional support, but they are a shooters necessity in the prone position. The added support and being able to elevate the rifle ever-so slightly without adjusting the bi pod legs is key.
I recently came across the a rear bag company, Wiebad, located out of Texas and had them design one specifically for me with the Reaper 33 logo. I have used plenty of rear bags, but none like the extremely light weight rifle rear bag produced by Wiebad.
As soon as the package came in the mail, I took it out to the range to test out its durability, reliability, etc. The bag comes in at a total weight of 3.6 oz, and the quick attach is a must have. Typically when maneuvering around obstacles, running, crawling, etc. the rear bags weight can be quite a distraction and nuisance especially when it’s banging around on all of your equipment and person. With this bag only weighing 3.6 oz, I hardly noticed it was there, even when attached to the butt-stock of the rifle. The quick attach is capable of attaching to the rear of the shooters butt-stock or to an attachment on a combat shooters belt (a review to come shortly).
The durability of the bag was also a shock. As light as the bag is, some may seem skeptical to its longevity. After running combat simulated test on the bag, it remained functional just as it was the day I took it out of the box.
