I need a soft case long enough for a precision rifle 45". I've been scouring the internet and there's so many options. Just need something lightweight, cheap and functional. I already have a pelican case but it's too big, heavy, and a PITA to transport.

I've been looking at the MidwayUSA drag bags pretty heavily.

I picked up these 2 Eagle bags off a prize table years ago, and I like both of them a lot. I like the smaller Sniper Rifle Case and Shooting Pad better (first link), since it's more compact and cinches up tight. It hold 1 rifle just right and is very compact.

The Hybrid case (second link) is larger and can carry 2 rifles, if needed, which is what I often use for my 2 hunting rifles.

I've got 3 of those Midway heavy duty soft cases and like everything about them except the lack of external storage pockets. There's one zippered pocket that's large enough for 2 boxes of ammo and little else. I too have been eyeballing their drag bags (not for dragging, just for transport), so if you end up with one, please post a report.

I'm in your same boat. I've been looking high and low at different bags to fit my 45" rifle.

I've looked really hard at the Voodoo cases, as I like all of the external pockets for mags, silencer, ammo, etc. But I've read a lot of people are having issues with the stitching or lack-there-of.

5.11 makes a sweet 50" "Urban Sniper bag" but they are definitely proud of it.

I use the midway drag bag and really like it. Lots of pockets only think I wish was different is the handle location. With 2 rifles it gets front heavy when carrying it to the side.

I guess I am the only one that just tosses my rifle in the back seat. I only use a hard case if any and thats only when I have to.

I'm not sure exactly how long my rifle is but i know it's too long. it has a 26" barrel and the case/bag i use is the following.

http://www.galatiinternational.com/product/SM4812O.html

It's probably overpriced but it's one of the only bags available that can hold my rifle and the shooting mat is quite comfortable (but I have nothing else to compare it to since i've tried others).

Like the Midway drag bag, used it for a week of shooting in the rain. Worked great as a shooting mat, then tossed gun inside and moved to next station then back to laying on it. It has places for bipod legs which was great. By them time I was done using the outside pockets were full of mud, as was the inside, and the zipper had failed by day 3. I contacted Midway and they gladly accepted it back, and then wrote me an email saying they have never seen their drag bag used in such a condition. Thanked me for using it to the extreme and sent me a new one.

Think I'm gonna give this one a go:

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/171584/midwayusa-sniper-drag-bag-tactical-rifle-case

Has a bunch of reviews and only complaint is the handle location. I plan on wearing it like a backpack or gym bag majority of the time.

I have a bag similar to the one above. The only problem I've had with it, probably a fluke, I was pulling it off the back of a golf cart by one of the "back pack" style straps and the male end ofthe plastic snap-buckle broke and flew across the parking lot. I replaced both buckle sets with with small stainless H-buckles and have been fine with it since. With two rifles and some gear it can be heavy.

I have one of these that I got from Amazon. Used it once so far and pleased with the way it holds the rifle secure and is padded well.

I suppose there are other good quality bags out there, but I'm pretty stuck on VooDoo.

I have had 5 of the Midway drag bags and still have two. Only issues I have had is zipper pulls break off.

I have given a couple away to friends and a customer.

Well ended up ordering this one off Amazon. Its Prime so it'll be here in 2 days, no shipping, no tax, $15 cheaper than the Midway one. Probably made in the sale Chinese factory. We'll see how it goes, hopefully I dont regret cheaping out but if all else fails it'll just turn into a case that goes inside a Pelican.
