The 4-Banger: my Go-To Go-Bag

Bradley Walker

It’s not that kind of 4-Banger. Our boy Brad Walker (Breach Bang Brad) wrote a review of this EDC, courier-type bag (the 5.11 Tactical 4-Banger) over on earlier.

Says Brad,

“Months back, I finally got my hands on a 4-Banger Bag from 5.11. I had been looking forward to checking the bag out for some time. I gave it a few spins in my hands, along with the normal poking and prodding that comes with new gear, then quickly starting loading it with essentials for a “get home” type situation. The 4-Banger stays in my wife’s van because that’s our primary family vehicle. I want her to have a solid and dependable bag capable of storing what she’d need if my family was to get stranded without me…The entire bag is weatherproofed to ward off unwanted moisture, and self-sealing YKK zippers assist in keeping weather, dust and dirt out (such measures also keep things sanitary if you carry it into Nancy’s Squat’n’Gobble).”

If you want read the full measure of Brad’s delightfully detailed delineation, read it over on’s Kit Up.

    I have been using the 2 banger for several months as an EDC bag and am very pleased with it. A Glock 26 will fit in the elastic in the magazine section, but hangs on drawing. Slipping a simple kydex holster under the loop solves the problem. The main compartment also fits a 7″ tablet for reading or web surfing. The strap can be flipped for right or left carry, the clips are under tension and are in no danger of opening inadvertently. I would like to see 5.11 offer more items in the color combination shown above.
