More and more guys/gals are trying to stretch out their shooting capabilities and one of the key components to shooting long range is having a good solid rest or shooting platform.. Now having a bench to make 1000 yard shots at the range is fine and all but its not practical to carry a bench sled or similar out in the field to hunt. So we look to portable shooting bags. There are many on the market that boast stability but few offer light weight versatility, and portability.  I have tried my fair share they all lacked something: whether it was the weight, or they were not a stable platform, or did not offer a adjustable positions, were cumbersome or hard to use they all came up short and I opted to shoot off my backpack.
