I was quite happy to learn that the Range Qualifier Bag by 5.11 Tactical helped alleviate the organizational issues that are present in other range bags.

Overall, this is a well-thought-out bag with pockets for everything, and provides good storage for your equipment.

From first impressions the dinky snap hooks are the only con I see so far. If one really loads this bag up with guns and ammo it will weigh quite a bit so I'd recommend going for full metal snap hooks.
