In October 2011 at the world shoot in Greece, Double Alpha Academy (DAA) introduced the new CED/DAA RangePack Pro, a new generation of custom made backpacks specifically designed for the serious competition shooter. The shooting world took notice, and since then this extra-large backpack has rocketed to the front of our range bag sales. Despite it being our most expensive bag, dedicated shooters were quick to notice that this bag stands head and shoulders above the rest, and that you get real value for your money. The RangePack Pro has become a runaway success!
The one criticism we received from some, was that the bag was too large for their needs or for their physique, and they implored DAA to offer a smaller version. Well, they listen to their customers, and we are pleased to now offer the new CED/DAA RangePack, the smaller brother to the RangePack Pro.
Like the larger version, the RangePack is designed to stand upright on its rubberised waterproof base, allowing easier access to all compartments and pockets while keeping the bag clean and dry. The upper compartment is large enough to allow 2 pistol insert sleeves to stand upright side by side, and will hold most of your gear. It includes a detachable 7-pocket magazine holder and several other side pockets designed to hold various gear, such as ear defenders, Progrip or a mag brush.
The lower compartment is encased in a hard plastic shell, forming the sturdy base for the larger upper compartment and giving the bag much of its structure. The lower compartment can be used to store ammo, cleaning kits and various items. It may be too small for a full size pistol sleeve to lay flat, but it is large enough to hold a pistol in a smaller case.
The CED/DAA RangePack has the same top quality and detailing as the larger RangePack Pro. It is made from black Ballistic nylon with a smart bright inner red lining. It includes a rain cover neatly packed away in a concealed pocket, ready at hand to be pulled out and wrapped around the bag to keep it dry. The shoulder straps and back are densely padded to provide support and comfort, even when carrying the bag fully loaded. An extra pocket in the upper flap is perfect for storing documents and pens , and 5 large external pockets add considerably to the storage space available.
Like the RangePack Pro, the RangePack is designed to fit perfectly on the CED/DAA RangeCart Pro, and includes the steel eyelets for this purpose.

Excellent Quality for IPSC or General Range UseBy: Sean O on 4 January 2016I couldn't wait to get my hands on this range bag and I've not been disappointed. I looked at 5.11 and G.P.S and finally settled on this one based on my research. It's VERY well made. The overall structure of the bag is appropriately rigid to allow it to stand upright at all times. The fabric, stitching and zips are all very well put together and finished. It feels robust and rugged and exudes style. The ammo section is very capacious. You could easily fit a few thousand rounds of 9mm if you had to. The fact that it comes with a gun pouch and brass pouch is a great bonus. I'm not certain how many guns it will accommodate in total, however I imagine it would be at least 3. The shoulder straps are strong and comfortable, with the padding on the rear of the bag adding even further to the positive carrying experience. 8 magazine holders and room for your eyes, ears, gloves, some cleaning gear, and more. It also comes with a strap to attach your belt with holsters. As Jerry Miculek would say; "whoooweeee, get some". This bag will not disappoint. And neither will the service from David. I've definitely found my local supplier for DAA gear. Thanks David
Every IPSC Shooter Needs One!!By: BrettG on 6 February 2015I had been searching for a new range bag for ages and had looked at every conceivable option. I was looking for a range bag that could be carried all day during competitions and would not put too much strain on the shoulders. An important criteria was also the storage space and storage options to which this bag ticks all the boxes. I have loaded this backpack with 2 guns and 600 rounds and it's an absolute pleasure to carry. Well done DAA, you have built the finest range bag on the market as far as I'm concerned. Thanks David Bailey for the exceptional service and great delivery. This Review was originally posted on the 09/07/2014
