How to Find Range Bags Made in the USA

In addition to our recommendations, we want to equip you with the knowledge to shop for made in the USA products on your own, which can be tricky! Especially if you’re shopping online. So, below are our tips on finding American made gun range bags, including notes on material sourcing, labeling, and other shopping tips. But first, let’s dive into wording – not all words are created equal when it comes to “made in the USA” messaging.

What Does “Made in the USA” Mean?

Let’s begin with the basics. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) states that only products that are “all or virtually all” made in the United States can claim to be “made in the USA.” More specifically, everything from manufacturing to raw material sourcing must take place domestically.

For further information on this topic, see our deep dive on shopping “made in the USA”.


Since the FTC stresses the importance of material sourcing in determining whether a product is made here, understanding where the materials brands use to create range bags is critical. 


Nylon is a stretchy fabric that’s still durable enough to carry heavy items such as guns and ammo, which makes it a popular material for range bags. China leads the globe in nylon production, while the United States lags behind in fourth place. This decreases your odds of finding a nylon range bag made in the USA. However, the US does produce around 2.4 million tons of this fabric each year, so it’s not an impossible task.


Cordura is a great alternative to nylon if you want a range bag made domestically. This fabric is both soft and durable. Many brands use Cordula produced overseas, but it’s still fairly easy to find a Cordura range bag made in the USA because a Kansas company called Invista makes this material.


Canvas is another common material used to make range bags because of its toughness and longevity. Items made from canvas can really take a beating! China is the top canvas-producing nation in the world, but the United States makes its fair share of this fabric. The odds are that the material is sourced domestically if you buy a canvas range bag from an American company. Still, since Asian and Central American countries are major players in canvas production and exporting, be sure to take the extra steps to ensure the canvas in a range bag is made here before you buy.


Range bag brands often use cotton in the handles and straps for comfort. Fortunately, cotton production is a $21 billion-dollar industry in the USA. However, the majority of the world’s supply of this material comes from China and India, so pay close attention to what country brands obtain cotton from.


Zippers are a key component in range bags because of their multiple compartments. The Japanese company YKK produces many zippers used in goods from around the globe. Fortunately, this brand has some manufacturing plants in the United States. In addition, the US has a few zipper-making companies of its own, such as Coats & Clark and Talon. This is one of the things that makes it possible to find range bags that were truly made here.


Once you grasp the sourcing of range bag materials, it’s time to consider labeling. If you want a range bag made in the USA,  Title 19 Chapter 4 Section 1304 of the United States Code provides some assistance. This law requires brands to properly label their goods with their country of origin. This means you should be hunting for the “made in the USA” label when shopping. Beware of almost-but-not-quite phrases on labels, such as “assembled in the USA,” which can mean the raw materials were sourced from abroad. You should also be on the lookout for the phrase “made in America,” which can indicate a range bag was produced in Mexico or Canada.

Keep in mind that although the FTC is supposed to protect the “made in the USA label,” the commission doesn’t have a pre-approval policy for brands to follow to receive permission to use that label. This means companies are free to police themselves, which can lead to fraudulent labeling. If you discover product mislabeling, be sure to report it.

In addition, never assume a range bag or any other product was made in the USA just because you see an American flag sticker. The United States doesn’t have any regulations in place to keep brands from putting the image of Old Glory or other US symbols, such as the bald eagle or Lady Liberty, on a label or using them in advertising if they imported the product. 

Final Tips

Here are some additional tips to help you find gun range bags made in the USA.

Company’s Official Website

Brands that make their goods in the USA tend to shout that fact from the rooftops. This is why you can get a lot of information from checking out a company’s website, particularly the “About Us” or “Our Story” section or individual product pages.

Sadly, brands are not obligated to state the country of origin for their merchandise in marketing materials, including their websites. This makes finding out where a product was made a complicated process, especially now that so many brick-and-mortar stores are closing and consumers are more dependent than ever on online shopping. However, as we said earlier, companies focusing on making products in the USA love to boast about it to attract those looking for those items. This means if you don’t see the country of origin for a product, it’s a safe bet it was made outside the USA.

Call the Company

Still in doubt about a range bag’s origins? Then, simply call the company, and a brand representative can tell you where an item was produced and where the raw materials were sourced.
