Product Preview: Rangeland Long Gun Backpack

posted on October 11, 2019
Need off-path protection for your favorite hunting gun? Look no further than the Rangeland Long Gun Backpack, from Watershed. A floating, abrasion-resistant rifle pack, the Rangeland pairs with a padded gun sock or sleeve to offer excellent protection for your rifle on your next backcountry hunt. Fully waterproof with a ZipDry closure, the Rangeland can fit rifles up to 46" when fully rolled and 50" when unrolled, all while riding comfortably on your back via adjustable backpack-style straps. The pack comes in Orange, Black, Coyote or Multicam (that last one for a 25% upcharge), with the optional addition of a $26 purge valve. Should your rifle be on the smaller side, or not have an optic necessitating the Rangeland's gaping 16" opening, check out Watershed's Highland Rifle Backpack. The bag is identical to the Rangeland in everything but dimension, with an overall length of only 40" (rolled) as compared to the Rangeland's 46" (rolled), and is accessed via a four-inch smaller opening (12"). For more on this pack, which retails for $177 (or $221.25 for Multicam), please visit
