Helmie Ashiblie founded SERT in 2005 with a focus on the design, development and production of tactical equipment for the military and law enforcement. Previously a male model who graced the pages of GQ Magazine, he decided to take his knowledge of the fashion industry and of fabric production and seize an opportunity he saw to make high-quality tactical gear.
SERT has sold bags to everyone from the U.S. Air Force to the Singapore Police Force: Special Tactics division, to Marine Recon and the FBI HRT.
SERT is currently based in Woodbridge, Virginia. They offer a selection of carriers, plates, vests, pouches and accessories, but I wanted to focus on the extremely popular rifle cases.
The Tactical Carbine Rifle Case comes in many different colors and several different lengths. The 46-inch case is designed to fit smoothly into a Pelican 1750 case. This is ideal for three-gun shooters, as you can comfortably fit an AR and a shotgun in the main compartment and weave a MOLLE pistol holster in the outer compartment.
There was a deceiving amount of room for accessories, and the material was high-quality and extremely durable. The shoulder straps were adjustable, and the two outer D-Rings add a lot of versatility for carry and storage options.
SERT recently showed its new GEN 5 bags at SHOT Show in Las Vegas, and they were met with a great reception.
The 46-inch TCC, Tactical Carbine Rifle Case, GEN 5 (the largest bag) is listed for $195 on their website.
Whether you are in charge of acquisitions for your unit or a gun enthusiast, this is one of the top bags I’ve seen. The price tag reflects the amount of effort put into this case.
