Blackhawk is producing the Diversion line of carry cases and bags that provide shooters, and CCW holders, the ability to carry their weapons in a more discreet manner. These bags are Blackhawk’s solution for active individuals who carry every day items or sports gear, and need their firearm within arm’s reach in the same bag.
The Diversion bags are fully functional in their general purpose design. Made of high quality 420-500 denier nylon with popular color schemes, the bags blend in with “ordinary” bags. However, each Diversion bag is specifically designed to house a firearm, and provide quick access to the stored firearm for owner protection. Access is achieved with pass-through pockets, or compartments with large zippers and easy-grip pull tabs to avoid fumbling with fine motor skills in dire times.
Several bags offer S.T.R.I.K.E. webbing for adding pouches if desired, and some have pre-designed pouches for pistol and rifle magazines, flashlights or other accessories.
So far Blackhawk has produced the following options:
- Diversion Courier Bag – MSRP $139.99
- Diversion Carry Board Bag – $144.99 (Can carry up to an AR-15)
- Diversion Work Out Bag – MSRP $174.99 (Can carry up to an AR-15)
- Diversion Carry (CCW) Sling Pack – MSRP $54.99 (Great for compact handguns)
- Diversion Racquet Bag – MSRP $64.99.
The most popular selections so far are the Work Out Bag and the Racquet Bag.
Firearms loosely stored in bags not designed to hold them can become entangled with other objects, and often will not be readily accessible if the owner needs quick access. Blackhawk Diversion bags appear to have solved that problem, providing a secure, yet easily accessible location for carrying firearms in “ordinary” bags. Currently the Diversion bags are offered in the following colors, though not each bag is available in each color:
- coyote tan,
- Ranger Green/coyote tan,
- black/red, and
If you carry a lot with you at any given time, or are looking for a great bug-out bag (B.O.B.) that doesn’t scream “guns and ammo”, then Blackhawk Diversion bags may be your answer.
