Reccomend a soft case for my AR

I have a 35" AR 16" barrel which I would like a soft case for.

It should have molle webbing and a couple of pouches on the outside for sling, oil, rags, tools, etc.

It needs straps to hold the rifle in position inside. Takedown would be ok, but I would prefer not to.

It needs decent padding too.

Would like Coyote Tan color.

Ideas?

I have two of the Drago cases. I have been extremely pleased with them. Not only do I find them to be better than the 5.11 cases (more storage pockets and more durable construction), they cost less as well.

Check Optics Planet, they have the Uncle Mikes "assault rifle" case for $59 bucks and I believe they have 10% off plus free ship. The case compares to others costing $100 plus.

It doesn't have Molle, nor straps to hold it in place... but the #5 size would fit with an inch to spare.

It has plenty of space for storage... much more and the dang thing would weigh to much.

I have used this brand for over 25 years. Plenty happy. I won't hesitate to again.

fishbed77,

What does the interior on the Drago's look like?
What type of straps does it have internally and are they adjustable?
What type of zippers does it have? YKK? Other?

Only asking cuz both links you posted don't mention or show pics.

Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind. Went on the manufacturers website and saw what I needed to know. Shoulda Googled before I posted.

Here are some additional picks of the Drago bags someone posted.

http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_3_118/572654_.html

The insides are well padded and the straps are adjustable via Velcro and hold the rifles in place well. The single rifle and double rifle cases are pretty much identical, except that the double case has a divider and two sets of Velcro straps.

LaRue Tactical makes some nice cases. I have two of them and have been very pleased with their quality.

This is what I have for my other AR. I think I'll do the same again.

FYI - The PSA case is identical to the Drago cases, as far as I can tell.
