Great bag have one request

In my opinion this bag would be greatly improved if there were compression straps just for the flip portion of the bag. When you fill this thing up the top portion is pretty unwieldy when you want to access the lower hard case especially since you have to undo the compression straps. Possibly adding interior compression/rention straps would be the best idea since it would also provide some rigidity to the duffle portion. We use this bag as an all inclusive 2 person three gun shoot bag and it holds everything we needed except for the shotguns themselves.

Excellent Quality

The foam insert is very dense and excellent for designing layouts. Holds all items securely yet malleable for extraction.

I travel a lot and this Hercules Duffel bag is perfect - quality constructed material and adaptable organization is right on the money. I’m glad I bought it and have received compliments.

Hercules duffel foam

I added the foam to my duffle to help protect smaller firearms and it’s working great! I can’t wait to organize it with items for an upcoming mountain hunting trip and fit everything in the bag. A great setup that will last me forever!

Foam insert is good but could be better

The foam insert is open cell foam. Personal experience with open cell foam is it collects moisture. If you don’t pay close attention to it, you can end up with a weapon with surface rust.
Closed cell foam is a lot better option, more rigid and holds the weapon better. Again, this is my own personal experience with open cell foam in areas where you have extreme temperature changes.
Open cell foam is really soft and pliable. If the bag or case takes a hard hit the foam will allow the weapon to move around, you can look at that as a good thing or bad thing. If you have multiple pieces of equipment cut out in the foam, the equipment can actually make contact with each other when a hard impact strikes the bag or equipment or worse, if you fly, they bag handlers handling the bag are not careful. I have personal seen bags thrown several feet onto the bag cart when offloading the aircraft. I was traveling with a rifle and watched a baggage handler throw my case over 3 feet onto the cart then walk over and stand on my case to put additional bags onto the cart. Without the closed cell foam, my rifle and additional equipment might have been damaged.

Great bag. Could have been even better.

The bag is huge, so if you are wondering if it will be able to properly contain all of your range gear or kit, it will. It can hold multiple pairs of pants, jackets, my carrier, two belts and my helmet..plus my nods case, ammo case, ammo bag, 10 rifle magazine, plenty of pistols mags, as well as one to two rifles and possible multiple pistols depending on how you pack. Its great. The main thing to remember is that this bag can get very heavy depending on how you pack it. The main things I am not a fan of are, the drag handle that is used while using the roller wheels. This is a nice feature but the handle is soft, not rigid and is in my opinion too limited on length. I believe this would have been the biggest upgrade to the bag. Im not an engineer but I would imagine there is a way of redesigning the handle to have length options and a more robust design. The other downside being the velcro dividers on the interior, they dont stay put very well.
