Drago Gear Sportsman Pro Tool Bag: A Durable Choice

There is no such thing as too many tactical bags. And even if you disagree with me you should still consider adding the Drago Gear Sportsman Pro Tool Bag to your collection. If you’re a firearm enthusiast looking for a new bag to hold your goodies, or if you’re just in need of a new tool bag, Drago provides a great option. This bag is insanely sturdy and is the perfect size for taking tools on the go or just staying right where you need them.

Features

When full, this bag is approximately 16’’x 10.5’’x 11’’, give or take. It has a soft shell made of polyester material, and though it’s not specified for this product, based on old catalogs for tool bags it’s safe to assume it’s 600 Denier. The polyester, either way, is extremely durable and lightweight and seems to be water-resistant. This is really no surprise because denier is a tough material, yet not excessively bulky.

On its exterior, there are six pockets total, with three on each large face. Each has dimensions of about 4”x 1.5” x 8.5” and is secured with a patch of Velcro. These pockets make a great option for easy-access items. 

Inside the bag, there are a total of 18 pockets, 12 of which are in a row sitting at about an inch wide and 5.5 inches deep. The other six are on the opposite side of the bag’s interior, sitting at approximately 2.5 inches wide and five inches deep. 

In the overall main pocket, Drago explains it can hold up to three utility boxes of up to 14” x 9.13” x 2” each easily. There is also a divider for when the main pocket is utilized for smaller items. It’s secured on one end of the bag and detachable on the other with Velcro for easy adjustment. 

To close the bag, there is a full-length zipper across the top.

This bag can be carried in two ways: shoulder strap or carry handles. The shoulder strap is adjustable with a sliding pad that has a thin layer of mesh cushion to support the weight of the bag. If shoulder straps aren’t quite your thing, or it’s just getting in the way, the strap can be unclipped from the bag leaving the carry handles to tote it around. The carry handles are just big enough to carry this bag and they’re reinforced to offer durability. 

Personally, I’m always interested in testing the strength of these straps (realistically, of course). I added about 10 pounds of ammunition, tools, and assorted kit to this bag. With the shoulder strap, it held up nicely. The bag was sturdy and didn’t flex with the weight, and the pad helped comfort for long use. The carry handles sustained this weight as well; however, the handles did dig into my hands after a while. This isn’t uncommon, however, and what truly matters is its durability. 

Uses

This bag is incredibly versatile. As stated in its name, this bag is perfect for tools. With its carrying interior pockets and the division for the main pocket, it’s a reliable option for a controlled amount of tools for various jobs.

It’s also perfect to keep your gun tools in check, as it has plenty of space for Hex wrenches, Torx, and the seemingly endless number of tools you need for taking care of scopes. It even has extra room left over for a cleaning kit, or spare parts. 

With this bag, these tools can be brought on the go, making it a great addition to your trip to the range in case something happens. You could also use this as a straight-out range bag. Though it doesn’t have the space for huge targets or mass amounts of guns and ammunition, it can hold your standard equipment. It can fit typical printer-paper-sized targets alongside a handgun case, ammunition, pens, ear pro, eye pro, TargetTacks, and more. The exterior pockets also make a great choice for first aid since having that easily accessible is so important. 

The entire bag could be transformed into a fairly sturdy go-bag or first aid kit as a whole as well. Its size makes it easy to take along without crowding your car but also without sacrificing what you bring in the bag. 

Outdoorsmen can get some use out of this too, as it is a great choice for hunting just as much as it is for the range. Fishing can work too, especially as it holds a standard utility box that may be your tackle box of choice. The tan color would be great for a hunt, too. 

Not only is this bag practical but it’s also easy on the eyes. I love the black bag. It looks neutral enough that it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb outside of the range, but it’s also tactically sound enough to be perfect for just about anything. And I mean, who doesn’t love a good side bag?
