MidwayUSA Competition Range Bag

I purchased this bag as a birthday present to myself in November and I can't believe I waited that long to do so! This range bag has been extremely well thought out in terms of usage and storage. I've managed to fill mine with three cleaning kits, supplies, tools, and spare parts/magazines and I still have room to spare. The construction seems quite durable which only time will tell. For now, I've yet to find another option that can equal the value of this model.

As shown (Olive Drab) - $49.99. Also available in Coyote(tan) and Black.

Oakley vertical computer bag

I've owned this bag, well an older model that is, since Christmas of 2007. It shows absolutely no exterior signs of wear and tear other than a bit of surface dirt. Oakley has done a phenomenal job at providing a variety of pockets within the bag that can accommodate anything you may need on a day-to-day basis. This bag does not disappoint. In fact, the only drawback I found (and it took quite a bit of thinking) was that the lining near the top ripped after about a year or so of use. This was easily repair by my local sewing shop. If you're looking for a long-lasting storage solution for your laptop, this is it!

Purchase this bag through Amazon.
