Safariland Introduces Ergonomic Shooters’ Range Backpack
And Slim Fits for 575 GLS Pro-Fit Concealment Holster

New slim model 575 available for popular subcompact handguns
Convenient backpack design provides ergonomic solution for carrying range gear

ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety and survivability products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, today introduced its Safariland Shooters’ Range Backpack (Model 4559) with an ergonomic weight distribution design. Also announced – a super slim 575 GLS™ Pro-Fit™ Inside-the-Waistband holster for popular subcompact handguns.

“Our Shooters’ Range Backpack takes the typical range bag to another level, converting it into an easy-to-carry backpack with lots of pockets and storage,” said James Dawson, category director for Safariland. “It’s the perfect grab and go pack for several shooting activities with its great organization options and exceptional comfort.”

Safariland’s Shooters’ Range Backpack offers an ergonomic carry with its thickly padded, curved shoulder straps, which help to evenly distribute the weight of the backpack across the upper torso, alleviating strain felt from bags carried on only one side of the body. The pack features assorted compartments on the interior and five separate zippered compartments on the pack’s exterior – one on top, three on one side and another large compartment on the other. The internal dividers allow storage and organization of a variety of shooting accessories.

With heavy-duty lockable zippers throughout, the pack has a reinforced large lower compartment for heavy ammunition, and a removable dual pistol sleeve for carrying multiple handguns. Constructed of ruggedly durable ballistic pack cloth, it comes with an all-weather cover and is available February 1 in either black, tan or gray. The MSRP is $195.00.

Safariland also now offers a new slim fit in its 575 GLS™ Pro-Fit™ IWB Concealment Holster. The 575 is now available for several subcompact handguns including the Glock 43, Springfield XDS and Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 9mm, .40, .45. The 575 incorporates Safariland’s GLS retention in an open top design with a slimmer, low-cut and compact body, allowing for a comfortable, smaller footprint over comparable models when wearing inside the waistband. The proprietary GLS secures the firearm once holstered, and retention is deactivated with the middle finger upon acquiring a standard shooting grip.

The holster body is comprised of SafariSeven™, a proprietary nylon blend, non-abrasive to the firearm’s finish and is fully functional in very high heat and extreme cold environments. Available
now, it comes in SafariSeven™ Plain Black and has an MSRP of $55.00.
Safariland also released a re-designed Enhanced 3-Gun Bag with an overall longer structure to fit longer firearms. New additional pockets have been added for extra storage. Also available February 1, the MSRP is $240.00.

The slim GLS Pro-Fit IWB Concealment Holster, Shooters’ Range Backpack and Enhanced 3-Gun Bag will be on display at The Safariland Group booth, #12762, throughout SHOT Show 2019 from January 22-25. For more information, please visit,
