Wondering what the experiences out there have been...I only 'need' a 41" long rifle to fit (20" AAC-SD), but getting a bit tired of feeling like I'm lugging the kitchen sink along every time I go shoot, so the idea of a combo drag bag + shooting mat kind of grabs me, assuming the mat is decent quality, and in 'bag' fashion holds the rifle and optics securely.

I've seen the Galati, Eberlestock, and Eagle bags, or at least pictures of them.
I've also seen the Triad tactical bag, which has a small-ish seeming mat that tucks away in it.

Besides the Eberlestock being $$$$, it's too long by a solid 11", or I might consider it, if it also served as a good shooting mat.

What I can't quite tell is if any of these (if there are others, please let me know), is if they make decent shooting mats, including ideally somewhere to preload/push the bipod against?

Any feedback on any of the above?

My Tactical Operations drag bag has a mat which folds in to the bag, it measures 48"x 25" and is padded well enough to be comfortable on gravel or small stones, it doesn't have any provision for anchoring a bipod.

They come in small and large. Europtic has the specifications.

I got one from Midway USA for less than $80. Fits my 18" SPR perfectly and folds out to quite a large mat.

Not a bad find, but seems somewhat big - although your 18" SPR should be shorter than my R700 AAC-SD (~40").
Do they make a 42-45" version, or any chance for a pic and OAL of your rifle?

The TacOps bag is nice.
Still going back and forth, and meanwhile I've picked up a fairly decent shooting mat, so still debating more or less - ditch the mat and pick up a bag/mat combo, or keep the mat + add a minimal drag bag that will hold the mat well enough to be a real 'grab and go' vs 'need to grab something else, etc.'
