I'm looking for a new soft case for my AR's.  Curious what people recommend.  I've had Haley Strategic and Condor bags in the past...all worked fine...but curious what else might be out there I haven't considered.

Anyone try the Vulcan waterproof bag?

Thanks in advance for the recommendations.

If soft case is the question, Sert TCC is usually the answer

I really like the Tactical Tailor Covert Carry Case Single bag. Comes in 36" or 44"

I also have LAPG's rifle bags as well - very well made at a fraction of the cost.

I’m currently using a Condor Javelin case.. it’s solid and discrete

I agree.
I ordered a SERT case several months ago.
Was so impressed I ordered a couple more.
High quality and well designed.

@SnidelyWhiplash

Which model did you go with?  Does it have a good amount of padding on the sides and ends?  My biggest complaint with my Haley Strategic Incog bag is the lack of padding.

Your rifle isn’t as fragile as you think it is.

SERT

Had them like forever.
Lots of padding, it is removable.

I have the 36" TCC, Tactical Carbine Rifle Case and the 28" TDC, TakeDown Case. As soon as they get black in stock I’ll be ordering the 42" TCC, Tactical Carbine Rifle Case.

The cases are on sale now. I paid full price and I don’t regret it a bit. Over the last six months I’ve spent more on firearm related purchases than I would ever admit to my wife and the SERT cases are the purchases that I look at and think “I’m glad I spent the extra for that case.  It was worth every penny.” . They have every feature I wanted and a few that I didn't know I wanted until the cases arrived.

I use the 36” case for my suppressed AR pistol and the 28” case for a CMMG Banshee .45 caliber. These cases are made from very durable canvas type material and have heavy duty zippers. I wanted cases that I could put my weapons into with a magazine inserted / tall optics and have relatively quick access to in a vehicle. These cases are also very discrete - nobody even takes notice to them when I bring them into a hotel with a suitcase.

The padding is adequate. The padding is lined with plastic inserts on both sides on each side of the case. I feel my weapons are very well protected in these cases.

I don’t want to sound like a commercial and I have no affiliation with SERT, just extremely happy with these cases. I’d never buy any other brand of soft case, and with the quality of these I probably will never have to.

Edwin’s picture makes my point. My AR has an Aimpoint CompM5 on a Unity Fast mount and from the top of the optic to the bottom of an inserted 30 round PMag it’s just at 12 inches. The SERT case fits my AR pistol perfect so I can take it with me in the car and have it loaded and, if needed, be ready to deploy right quick.

When I bought my first one I called and the owner (Tom I think was his name) answered the phone and answered a couple questions I had. Nice guy.

SERT looks nice, kinda spendy though.
Link Posted: 1/14/2021 5:34:16 PM EST
Search YouTube for

“SERT TCC (Tactical Carbine/Rifle Case), Gen 5”

and you can see the owner give an overview of the case.

Really like the GGP one.

Here is a photo of the accessory compartment outfitted with some pouches.

Check out Boyt Harness, waxed canvas V nylon that's used in most cases. I have a Boyt case that is almost 80 years old and it is still GTG.

I buy cheap cases simply because they work. VISM cases from OpticsPlanet are $35.00 +/- and at that price I can buy several in case a zipper breaks.

If I were going to being flying I would purchase a premium hard case. For the back of my truck soft cases work great.

I've looked pretty hard at this case for the last year. It is spendy, but I don't doubt it is quality and it fits perfectly inside a hardcase. I would like one that fits snug enough to not slide around.

Before I pull the trigger on it, does anyone know of any other good soft cases that fit nicely inside a hardcase (preferably a Pelican)?

The Sert TCC is designed to be used inside a Pelican case.

From the descriptions on the Sert site:

“This 42" case is designed to fit into a Pelican 1720 and Storm iM3200 case.”

“This 36" case is designed to fit into a Pelican's Storm iM3100 case. It will NOT fit into Pelican's 1700 case because the 36" TCC has been lengthen by 1" to accommodate the many requests we get for this.. Our case dimension is 37"

“This 46" case is designed to fit into a Pelican 1750 or Storm iM3300 case.”

I'm with ya.  I just got their discreet rifle case and it is a great value.  Fits my 20" DMR upper perfectly.  Seems well made, but time will tell how it holds up.  For the money it is hard to beat.

Think of SERT as the armored car of cases....there is not a better case made and I have owned a lot of them.  I would take a SERT over one of the old American made Eagle Industries from 10-15 years ago.

I have the Vanquest Rackit case. I has an accessory compartment that you put a pistol or magazine holders inside.
