It’s A Good Choice: Allen Eliminator Range Bag

          Overdue Product Review Alert: After approximately three years of heavy use, I am going to tell you about this range bag from everyone’s favorite gun case manufacturer, Allen Company, Inc.. Clearly after that much time, I have more than enough information to write a review with.


          Firstly, I’ll mention the general features of this range bag. The Allen Eliminator Range Bag, which may also be marketed as the “Eliminator Pro Range Bag (SKU: 8300)”, is a medium-sized, multi-compartment bag meant for carrying shooting range related items. It comes with a fixed-position padded shoulder strap, a 17″L x 11.5″W folding pistol rug, and a removable divider for the main compartment. I promptly through away this divider since I preferred to have the main compartment as big as possible. Furthermore, the Eliminator only comes in one coloration. That being the brown, black, orange.

Here is the Allen Eliminator Range Bag in all its glory.

          Now, I’ll tell you about this thing’s capacity. The main compartment measures 11.5″W x 8″D x 7.25″ H. The main compartment lid has a mesh pocket that takes up the entirety of the main compartment lid’s underside. The exterior lid, which is above the main compartment lid, has two mesh pockets on it’s underside. There are four side pockets on the Eliminator Range Bag. The left side pocket measures 8.5″W x 4″H x 1″D. It has an internal mesh pocket. The front side pocket measures 11.5″ W x 4″H x 1″D. It to has an internal mesh pocket. On the right side, there are two pockets. Both are the same size at 3.5″W x 4″H x 1″D. The right side pocket that’s nearest the front of the bag has a three elastic loops for holding small, narrow items. The far right side pocket has a single loop that spans the whole pocket. The maximum weight that I think you can load this bag up with is 23lbs. Having more weight than that tends to deform the bag a lot. Plus, the plastic clasps on the shoulder strap may get pushed past their limits and break if you are moving around with that amount of weight. 

After you remove the main compartment divider, you have one big space to store things. The main compartment can easily hold ten 25-round boxes of 12 gauge.

          Lastly, I’ll cover the durability/construction of the Allen Eliminator Range Bag. This range bag is pretty good. I have used it a lot in the last three-ish years I have owned it. I have loaded it up to the max, thrown it around, and used it every time I went shooting being how it was my only range bag, and it has held up for the most part. However, one of the two zippers for the main compartment lid did become dislocated and there is now heavy fraying of fabric near this zipper. So, now the main compartment lid’s zippers are out of commission. Other than that, it has done its job. It protects it’s content well since all the pockets have internal plastic reinforcements that give the pockets a semi-rigid feeling. All the zippers are have nylon coil teeth and painted zinc sliders. The majority of the fabric parts are made of polyethylene vinyl acetate, a strong, abrasion-resistant synthetic material. The only fraying that occurred with this range bag is in the stitching of a few areas. All other areas look good, including the bottom.
