HAZARD 4 SMUGGLER SLING PACK
Nothing is as individualistic as deciding how to carry immediate-action items such as a handgun, weapon magazines (handgun and rifle), medical IFAK, radio and whatever else is needed in high-risk environments. Factors such as accessibility, adaptability, fit, weight-to-mobility ratio, retention and space constraints all come into play. Let’s face it: The world is becoming a more dangerous place—not only overseas, but here in the United States, as well.
Hazard 4 is a company that is helping to equip our military, law enforcement, private security contractors (PSC) and civilians.
The Hazard 4 Smuggler Sling Pack has been in use supporting my various article projects for the last several months. The convenience of easy adaptability for carrying multiple weapons and ancillary gear (ammunition, optics, suppressors) is much appreciated. The Smuggler is a large Evac Series sling pack specifically designed to accommodate carbines up to AK47/AR length.
However, the Smuggler is designed so that users do not feel that items are jammed in. I found it easy to accommodate the Steyr AUG with no issue. Shooters can transport their rifles with a magazine inserted and/or optics mounted. Additional external pockets can carry magazines, a cleaning kit, extra parts and everything you need for transporting your work gun or hauling around urban gear.
A folded, padded sleeve is included with the Smuggler that can be used as padded support for any items you might want to place inside the compartment; alternatively, it can be used to hold a rifle inside. This means you can place a rifle inside the folding sleeve, itself, to provide a little cushioning for it. The folding sleeve can also be taken out of the bag and used as a shooting mat.
The Smuggler Pack has evolved into one of my favorite weapon-transport cases.
