So in the last month, I’ve had the Sneaky Bag’s Covert Rifle bag I’ve been on two road trips. Do I personally need a rifle everywhere I go? No, but it’s a great way to test the bag, how well it disguises your gun, and how durable it is. The Covert Rifle Bag comes in three different sizes, and this particular model is the small model. It is perfectly capable of carrying a full sized modern defensive rifle like the SCAR 16s or AR 15.


On the road with the Sneaky Bag’s Covert Rifle Bag

So the first road trip was a short one, and one overnight stay over two long days. We checked into a hotel and I carried the bag from the parking lot to my room without a cross look. The bag was protective of the SCAR 16s, aka my precious. The rifle itself was topped with an optic and had a magazine in place. The bag is wide enough to fit a fully equipped rifle with ease.

The second road trip was a bit longer and had me staying at a friend’s house. Even he, a veteran and fellow gun guy, didn’t realize what the bag was. He even unloaded it from the car when I arrived. The overall design simply isn’t what one expects from a ‘gun’ bag. There is no mag pouches, no external MOLLE, or other tactical giveaways. The bag is very simple, and resembles something more suited for camping or holding a musical instrument. The external appearance is very simple and the bungees allow you to strap a jacket or hoodie to the bag to disguise it even more.

Why can’t I use a duffel bag?

Admittedly it’s an oddly shaped bag but it really doesn’t look like anything gun related. The bag is designed to hide, and protect the gun. Any old duffle bag can conceal a gun, but they won’t protect it or make drawing it easy. The Covert Rifle bag also allows quick and easy access to your weapon. The internal design is smooth and designed to make drawing your rifle from the bag easy to do. There is nothing for your rifle to get caught on when you pull the rifle from the bag. My rifle slides in and out without issue.

I don’t live a life where pulling a long gun needs to be a smooth and drama-free affair. For armed professionals like private security or police forces, the access to a long gun can save lives. Getting delayed over some kind of strap catching a front sight isn’t issue one wants to have when a rifle is needed. The fact this bag can carry a rifle with a loaded magazine and optic and still be easy to retrieve could be a blessing in critical situations

Sneaky Bag's Covert Rifle bag

The Sneak Bag’s Covert Rifle bag itself is surprisingly big. It can fit a massive amount of different rifles. I’ve personally tested the bag with the SCAR 16S, your everyday AR 15, a CZ Scorpion rifle, and SIG 556R rifle and AK pattern rifles. With the SIG 556R and AK pattern rifle, you cannot mount an optic and a 30 round magazine. The longer 7.62 x 39mm magazine is a bit longer than your standard 5.56 magazine. To be clear these weapons are assembled and ready to rock and roll.
