Her Pick: Blackhawk Diversion Carry Racquet Bag

Our Price: $55.99

Colors: Gray/Blue, Gray/Black, Gray/Red


Blackhawk developed its diversion carry line after receiving feedback from undercover operatives who needed to move their weapons and gear around covertly. They communicated that even discrete rectangular gun cases were still a problem. Boxy cases scream “Gun!” and can still draw unwanted attention.

“This is one of my favorite diversion carry bags on the market right now. So sleek!” Wolz says.

The Racquet bag is the ultimate covert carry solution. The cleverly designed bag mimics an ordinary tennis racquet case but allows you to keep up to two firearms protected and out of sight. It comes in three nonmilitary color combinations to keep a low profile. Not only that, but also instead of using a traditionally tactical Cordura, the bag is built from an atypical-though-still-durable wider-weave nylon. The color and material work together to give the bag a strategically commercial look.


Open the bag, and you’ll find the gun-friendly features. It starts with the locking sliding zippers so you can keep your firearm safe, secure and out of others’ hands. The inside is lined with a Velcro loop, which allows for easy storage of mags and accessories. A padded divider splits the bag into compartments for carrying up to two firearms or separated upper/lower AR-15 receivers.

The bag can fit any guns under 29 inches long including an underfolding AK, FS2000, any short barrel M4 and M-15 platforms and AR pistols. It fits and protects your weapon while its everyday casual exterior won’t arouse suspicion in any passerby.

One Comment on “Staff Pick: The Blackhawk Diversion Carry Racquet Bag

  1. It is great to see that an established brand like Blackhawk is taking feedback from customers into consideration, and trying to come up with the right solution. The diversion carry bag is really nice; especially the sleek one that I believe is going to make a huge success. Even though it seems to slightly imitate a normal tennis racquet bag, still it I feel the concept is really innovative and creative. All the gun-friendly features are marvelous!
