Gear Review: T3 Bolt Bag (VIDEO)
By Eve Flanigan
A “go bag” for last-minute missions or rough duty at the range needs to be tough. T3 Gear makes its Bolt Bag just that way. I recently dragged (literally one time) a Bolt Bag along on a training trip in rough desert conditions. Upon return, the Bolt Bag was still looking right and ready—unlike me!
This bag is medium size—10 inches tall, 13 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. It weighs 1 pound; 11 ounces. The outside layer is 500 weight Cordura, making it abrasion resistant and lending a stiff feel until it’s broken in. Inside, it’s lined with 250 denier, making lt less abrasive. It’s coated with a non-glare finish. To carry it, use the removable, adjustable shoulder strap, made of nylon webbing, or attach it to a pack with the two Velcro loops on the back.
Also on the outside is MOLLE webbing, another way to make the Bolt Bag a component of a setup for carrying gear. What’s not up front is any visible branding or loop material space for attaching patches. In this way, the Bolt Bag—as long as it’s not overstuffed–can masquerade as a non-tactical messenger bag if a low profile is needed.
