GPS Large Range Bag Review: A Gear Bag for the Pros

In the past, I would use a compact range bag that was easy to carry around with a few essential range items inside. But over time, things got added to the bag, making it too small to carry what I needed. With today’s technology and great new products constantly coming to the market, it’s easy to want a wider range of gear. I like bags that keep my gear organized, and the GPS Large Range Bag is one of the coolest bags I’ve seen to date.

When I first started visiting a shooting range regularly, I would pack my gun, mags, and ear and eye protection in a small over-the-shoulder bag. After a few visits, I started adding targets, emergency gear, range finders, and spare parts. My gear selection was getting bigger, but my gear bag wasn’t.

The point is that a decently-sized range bag is a must-have. You can carry your ammo, extra mags, and everything else you need while on the range. And if you own a gun, you should be training with that gun. The GPS large range bag is an impressive bag for those of us who want to take everything with us and keep it organized.

GPS Large Range Bag Compartments

When I say it’s large, I simply mean it’s large for a range bag and not to be confused with an oversized duffle bag or something ridiculous. It’s large for a range bag, but not so big that it’s too bulky to carry around or store in a car. The overall dimensions for the GPS range bag are 17″Wx11″Hx13″D. So, it’s big, but not too big.

What I like most about this bag is the sheer amount of pocket space and built-in storage. Each compartment has heavy-duty double zippers for quick access and built-in carry handles to make it easy to move.

Compartments 1 and 2

Located on each side of the bag are compartments 1 and 2. Foam-lined walls protect items inside these compartments. A separate, small pocket with a zipper is located on the outside of compartments 1 and 2 for quick access to smaller items. GPS placed small logos on each pocket to help identify what goes in them. Compartment 1 (left) has a small logo of earmuffs and a stapler on the smaller outer pocket. Compartment 2 (right side of the bag) has a logo of binoculars.

The smaller pocket on the outside of compartment 2 shows a roll of shooter’s tape for covering target holes. I’m not sure these small logos are large enough to see on the range when reaching for items quickly, but it does help you decide where to put them in the first place. I was able to place a full-size stapler in the small pocket on the outside of compartment 1 without issue. At least two pairs of earmuffs would fit in compartment 1.

Compartments 3 and 4

Compartment 3 (back side of the bag) is a surprising find (see photo below) because it has all kinds of storage for smaller items. There are four ammo dump cups (two large, two small) that attach to the inside of the compartment with simple hook-and-loop panels. Just pull them off and place them wherever you want. This is handy if you carry self-defense/duty ammo in your mags and need to dump it for range ammo. You also get a small plastic container that slides into a pocket inside compartment 3. I’m not sure what I’ll keep in it yet, but it’s a cool idea.

There are three other small pouches inside compartment 3 for keeping tools, keys, and other items. Compartment 4 (front side of the bag) is lined with seven pistol magazine holders. This makes them easy to grab at the range when you’re getting ready for drills. There is another storage area on the inside lid of compartment 4. Overall, compartment 4 is large enough to hold a magazine loader and other small items in addition to the 7 magazines.

Compartment 5

The largest compartment of all is the center of the bag. This area is all open, which I like because there is so much storage for smaller items in the side compartments. Looking down into the center reminds me of a lunchbox. Ammo boxes, handguns, or plenty of other items will easily fit in here. Just about everything from my compact range bag fits in the side compartments. I’m not sure what I will keep in this large area, but I’m sure I’ll fill it up with something down the road.

On the inside lid of the main compartment (compartment 5), you see an additional four pouches for earplugs, safety/sunglasses, and various range tools. These little pockets throughout the GPS range bag make it stand out from other bags I’ve used.

What can the GPS large range bag hold?

After moving my range gear to this bag, I still have a little room for other things down the road. A large shoulder strap is included with the bag, making it easy to carry around — even when it’s full. It comes in several colors, including digital camo (which I selected), black, tan, and rifle green. Here are some of the items I placed in my GPS large range bag using the storage compartments:

  • Earplugs x 2
  • Safety glasses
  • Small multi-tool set
  • Staple gun
  • Extra staples
  • Binoculars (this helps see where you’re hitting your target if you don’t have a spotting scope)
  • Vortex range finder
  • Decibel reader for testing ammo/silencer decibel ratings
  • Duct tape, and electrical tape (I keep duct tape in every bag)
  • Extra CR123, AA, and AAA batteries (I ended up putting these in that little plastic container from compartment 3)
  • Optics keys and small Allen wrenches
  • Real Avid AR-15 Gun Too AMP (best multi-tool for AR-15s on the range)
  • Real Avid 4-in-1 tool for Glock pistols
  • Unorthodox Glock speed loader (this is the best magazine loader for Glocks I’ve ever seen)
  • Shooting gloves
  • Small flashlight (for seeing around in my bag if needed)

A perfect upgrade for anyone

For the price, this is one of the best range bags I’ve used to date. It has just enough room to keep most range gear in. As I mentioned above, the small pockets and organization containers with this bag are the best I’ve seen. It appears to be well-made and has plenty of room in the middle for larger items. I can even fit my water bottle and a sack lunch if needed, making it perfect for those long days on the range. This is a bag I can get used to. Do you need a new range bag?
