At was over at Brownells buying some parts for a gun and stumbled upon their Echo System Get Home Bag.
It is a very nice looking bag and has quality items in it, but the $249 price tag seems a bit much for my budget. Now other places sell this same bag, so this is nothing against Brownells.
Here is what all it comes with:
