It keeps things simple for working without light. I absolutely love this case for this. One large space with a nice folded pad inside that the rifle nests into. The pad does kind of create some little slots where thin gear can be stored on the outer edge of the bag. Their zipper as always takes its role in stride. I was out in heavy rains and my rifle was able to stay dry until I pulled it out to the elements. The only thing I am looking for a good solution to sling it across my back. I'm using one of the slings from my duffel since I don't wear it as a backpack and only sling it as well. It's not perfect but does the job and I can carry it over long distances relatively comfortably. If there was one thing I could do, it would be to put D rings handle side 1/3 from each side so you could clip there and at the opposite end that currently has rings. That way it would rest over your shoulder naturally with the barrel well up over my shoulder.
