I wanted to bring a lot more class and the ultimate in light weight to the world of fore end and toe support bags for competitive shooters and hunters. The world has enough kooky ultra-modern camoflage and coyote brown/desert tan/flat dark earth/olive drab shooting rest bags made of Cordura Nylon to fill a football stadium and while they tend to perform well enough the camoflage varieties without exception all look tacky and the plain desert tan/coyote brown/flat dark earth all look distinctly shabby. What ever happened to good old fashioned leather? Hand dyed, hand stitched, master crafted leather that looks classy as hell while being no less functional than Nylon and actually being a lot more puncture, wear and tear resistant than Nylon. Some of us like our kit to reflect a sense class and distinctive taste rather than sticking like glue to the current tacticool fad. Everything doesn’t need to be tactical. Things can simply be functional and stylish too.
After much work on the part of my favorite leather worker we have come up with an awesome pair. The set weighs less than 1lbs and is made from top quality cowhide and an ultra light fill material. The fill is waterproof, retards mold growth, won’t crumble and has great lock in. Perfect for hunting from the ground, a swivel chair or the bed rails of a bakkie (aka pickup truck), at a match or just a casual day of shooting at the local gun range.
When you pull out my new C-Pillah and Toe Bone you’re not just telling the world that you don’t need to pretend to be a special forces operator just to enjoy a day of hunting or target shooting. You’re also confirming that your sense of style doesn’t have to be sacrificed on the altar of functionality. You can have your cake and eat it too.
If you would like to order a set, the cost is $200 and you can email ballisticxlr at gmail dot com to begin the ordering process. These are custom made per order at this time. If there’s enough interest we’ll make the ordering process available online.
