A Bit of Background
Coming into this review, it’s fair to say my range bag and pistol case lineup was reasonably well set. My first string choices were pretty locked in. My main go-to range bag I have had for over 25 years, and it still holds up solidity. We had the Vism Expert Range Bags in inventory for over five months before I even gave it a second look.
When I did, I vetted it pretty well online and didn’t find much in the form of reviews. The firearm forums were information overload, many people had opinions, and most had never actually seen the bag in person.

First Look at The Bag
It would be hard to call opening the package to the Range Bag an unboxing. It comes in a clear plastic bag, but it did have some better-than-expected moments. The bag is compressed in a clear plastic bag, so when you take it out, you realize it’s much bigger once opened and expanded.
Expanded, you see, there are pockets everywhere. Five outside pockets and the top main compartment. As you unzip the bag, you’re met with a well-organized interior that showcases the bag’s versatility and functionality. The main room reveals ample space for firearms, ammunition, and accessories, with customizable dividers to fit your needs.
Multiple zippered pockets and MOLLE
webbing on the exterior provides additional storage options. Contrary to what I had heard from the forum users who don’t actually own the bag, the zippers are heavy-duty, and the reinforced handles feel well-suited to carry some weight. Unboxing the Vism Expert Range Bag leaves a solid first impression.
Ample Storage Space
One of the key features of the Vism Expert Range Bag is its spacious interior. With a generous main compartment, a front padded compartment for rifle or pistol magazines, and multiple side pockets, this bag provides plenty of space to store all your firearms, ammunition, accessories, and gear. You’ll never have to worry about leaving anything behind when you head to the range.
Spacious Main Compartment
Main Center Compartment 10” W X 19” LX 9” H, End Inside pockets (2 each) 10” W X 9” H, Padded side pockets (2 Each) 18” L X 8½” H.
The Vism Expert Range Bag has a spacious main compartment that provides ample room for all your firearms and shooting accessories. It can easily handle 6 (or more) full-size pistols. Whether you need to carry multiple handguns, ammo, magazines, or other gear, this pocket offers many possibilities. With its generous size and customizable configuration, the main pocket is pretty badass.
Large Single Padded Side Pocket
Front padded compartment for rifle (up to 4 each) or pistol (up to 8 each) magazine 15” W X 8” H. Elastic loops for rifle or pistol magazines.
In addition to the main compartment, this range bag offers padded side pockets that provide extra protection for delicate items such as optics or electronic accessories. The padding ensures that your gear remains safe and secure during transport. These pockets are also great for storing extra magazines or other items that require added cushioning.
Double Padded Side Pockets
Rear Twin Padded Compartment with elastic loops and pockets for a notepad, pens, and shooting glasses 7¾” W X 8½” H.
The double side pockets are padded, have elastic magazine holders, and are big. They’ll easily hold 15 or more magazines in various sizes and calibers. These pockets are big enough to hold a wide range of things, but with all the other pockets you can use them as they were designed. You’ll have plenty of room for your cleaning kit, ear protection, eye protection, ammo, etc., etc. etc.
Side Padded Compartment:
Side padded compartment: elastic loops for rifle (up to 4 each) or pistol (up to 8 each) magazines 8¼” W X 8” H.
A good-sized, double-zippered, padded pocket, this compartment provides my potential options for storage.
This compartment has elastic loops to accommodate magazines. But with the other pockets, I didn’t need the space for that, so I added my Uplula Speed loader, range finder, shot clock, and tactical gloves to this pocket, with room for more.
The outside of the compartment has a clear business card size window to slide a name tag or other identifier if you like,
End Inside Pockets
Side padded pocket: 4½” W X 8” H & Water bottle pocket.
This is the smaller of the two outside pockets but still with a good amount of room. It is a padded pocket with an adjacent pocket that fits a water bottle.
I used this pocket for my hearing protection, eye protection, and anything like keys, wallet, or anything I want out of my pant pockets at the range. This pocket would also be perfect for storing smaller items such as cleaning kits, tools, or other personal belongings. You can keep your essentials.
easily accessible and separate from the rest of your gear, making it quick and convenient to find what you need.
Organization, Functionality, and Durability
In addition to its ample storage space, the Vism Expert Range Bag also offers a variety of organizational features. No more digging around in a cluttered bag to find what you need. Everything has its place, making your shooting experience more efficient and enjoyable.
Adjustable Hook and Loop Pockets
The Vism Expert Range Bag features adjustable hook and loop pockets, allowing you to customize the interior space to fit your needs. Whether you need to accommodate more oversized items or create smaller compartments, these pockets offer versatility and flexibility.
Wide Padded Shoulder Strap
The shoulder strap comes on and off easily, and the attachments are hardy metal clips. There is more than enough strap to adjust it where you want to, and whether you like to use them or not, it is handy.
With the amount of gear this bag will hold, there will likely come a time when you employ the strap.
Hook and Loop Fasteners
A hook and loop fastener, commonly known by the brand name Velcro, is a type of fastening system that consists of two components: hooks and loops. One component features tiny, stiff hooks, while the other has softer loops. When pressed together, the hooks engage with the loops, creating a secure and temporary fastening. This bag’s Hook and Loops are between all the pull-out compartments in the main bag,
this allows you to adjust every pocket size fully. It works excellent for separating different caliber ammo.
Pull-out bag with Carry Handles
Pull-out bag with Carry Handles: 6” W X 19” L X 7½” H. The Center Compartment has hook and loop panels for Customizing the Inside Pockets arrangement.
The pull-out compartment is large in its own right. This unique compartment offers quick and easy access to your firearms via two zippered side pockets. It also provides an easy way to carry ammo and leave your bag.
With a simple tug on the rugged, reinforced handle, the pull-out compartment smoothly extends, revealing your handguns securely stored in padded sleeves and multiple magazine or ammo pouches. This design not only keeps your firearms organized and protected but also allows for a seamless transition between preparation and action at the shooting range.
Brass Bag with a Mesh Bottom
This extra add-on is timely for me. Given the recent ammo shortage and price hike, I have contemplated reloading again. Whether I start back up with reloading or not, I plan on collecting my brass.
The Brass Bag, with its mesh bottom, provides a convenient solution for collecting spent cartridge casings.
It’s a simple add-on but shows the combination of practicality and attention to detail in the Range Bag.
Top hook and loop fastener for Securing Hearing Protection
Although I used it to secure the strap from dangling, there is a hook and loop strap on the top of the bag for attaching ear muff-style ear protection.
If you use ear protection like the Axil Ear Buds I use, you know they take up very little space, which does open possibilities to use the strap to secure other things.
As with any heavily used range bag, durability is key. The Vism Expert Range Bag is constructed from high-quality nylon material built to withstand heavy use and abuse. I know because I have had it on multiple trips, with the bag weighing over 30 lbs. The reinforced stitching and heavy-duty zippers held up excellently. When I’ve bought inexpensive range bags, the zippers are the first thing to go, and add some weight, and I’ve seen them go on first use.
Regarding heavy-duty range bags, to date, this bag feels like quality I’ve paid much more for in the past.. Its versatility, ample storage space, and durable construction make it among my favorite bags.
