The biggest factor you’ll need to decide on is if you would like a soft case or a hard case for your rifles. If you’re only requiring a carrying case to take a few things to the firing range on the weekend, then you’ll want to stick to the soft cases. At the end of the day, taking up less space will be key here, and you don’t necessarily need the toughest, roughest case if it’s just going to be stored in your car.
If you have reasons to travel with your rifles, whether to the other side of the country or overseas, then you’ll want to heavily consider a hard carrying case. Hard carrying cases should always have a special coating to protect both the case itself and your firearms from the weather elements they may endure. If your things are being stored on a plane, then a hard case will ensure that no damage comes to your rifles when it inevitably bumps up against other luggage.

Materials — This is a soft double rifle case that is made of high-quality 600D denier polyester. This fabric is ideal for the outdoors as it is waterproof and tough against wear and tear. It protects your rifles from the elements. It comes in two color choices: black and army green. The bag comes in two sizes: 37″ (37.4″ x 11.8″ x 3.93″) and 42″ (42.5″ x 12.3″ x 3.93″).
As this is a big case to carry around, the shoulder strap is supplemented with an additional hand carry strap. Also, it weighs roughly 1.4 kg.
Performance — The main bag has two zippers that open the roomy case. Aside from that, it has three MOLLE auxiliary pockets for extra gear. These pockets are, however, concentrated on one side only. If you want pockets all around your rifle case, then you’re out of luck. Though, understandably, the other side was left bare to avoid snagging when you carry the bag. It does however have an extra compartment where you can keep smaller items like pistols and accessories.
Aside from its durability and high functionality, we like that the MOLLE pouches have adjustable buckles. What makes this double case really superior is its inner compartments. It allows you to lock your guns in place and save them from unnecessary shakes whenever you transport them.
What we say — We have nothing but good things to say about the GGD MOLLE Tactical Double Rifle Case. Material-wise, it was great and is really sturdy for a soft case. It opens all the way through, so if you’re like us and don’t like stuffing things inside, you’ll love this case. It seals the deal by being versatile and low-cost, with a touch of practicality to it.
- Sturdy and made of quality materials
- The bottom base secures the rifles
- Has lots of space and pockets
- MOLLE pockets are only on one side
Materials — This is the second double rifle soft case in this review, produced by Condor. The main compartment in the case is large enough to hold two rifles, and it also includes padded sleeves and hooks, and loop straps to keep the weapons securely in place during travel. Heavy-duty zippers on all compartments of the case can be padlocked.
The front of the case, similar to the previous option, features three pockets for additional storage, which also close with zippers and buckle clips. The carrying handle can be closed together with Velcro, and there’s a backpack strap that is detachable. This option is available to purchase in black, olive drab, or tan.
Performance — Condor is another very trustworthy brand. This option happens to be lacking the MOLLE webbing and doesn’t have quite the pocket space the NcStar selection does, but you’re still buying a sturdy case. Plus, the backpack straps can really come in handy. With just buckle clips and zippers, this isn’t exactly a secure option for long-distance travel. However, it will make a great double rifle case for carrying your gear to the range or for shorter distances.
What we say — This is the best choice for those not doing long-distance travel and who don’t need TSA-level baggage for their firearms.
- Three large extra pockets
- Heavy duty zippers for padlocking
- Backpack straps
- Not good for long distance travel
Materials — On to the hard cases! Plano’s Double Scoped Rifle Case is made of a hard-coated exterior, which has a constant Dri-Loc seal to protect your firearms from water, extreme temperatures, and dust. Wheels at the base and a swivel handle at the top make this heavy-duty case easy to carry, specifically for airport travel. Inside the case is the Plano pluck foam.
One side has flat, dense foam, for laying and arranging your weapons as well as magazines. The other side has especially texture foam for padding your weapons without allowing them to move around during transport. There are four heavy-duty locks on the case, which click quickly to close but won’t open or break easily.
Performance — Now that we are on to hard cases for your multiple rifles, Plano’s option here is perfect for long-distance travel or travel where you have to stow your items away. The Plano brand offers quite a wide selection of hard cases, and we chose this one for its heavy-duty auto-lock latches. They really do keep the case secure.
This is a convenient case to carry — or not carry. For that matter, the wheels counteract the heavier weight of the case in general. There are no straps to tighten over your items. The padding makes the need for straps a little unnecessary, but it would still be nice to have the extra confidence that your rifles won’t budge.
What we say — The Plano Double Scope Rifle Case is the best choice for long-distance travelers and for those that want more than just zippers with padlocks to keep their rifles safe from theft.
- Hard, protective case
- Special locking latches
- Wheels for convenient travel
- No straps within the case
Materials — This double rifle hard case from SKB is constructed of an HDBE shell, which has been O-ring sealed to resist water or dust from entering the case. The case also has molded bumper protection. The trigger release locks on the front are accepted by airport TSA, and they’re made of nylon reinforced with fiberglass.
In addition, the heavy-duty wheels glide quietly, and the towing handle is spring-loaded. Inside the case is a bunk-bed style set up with foam padding. A third foam insert separates your two firearms, so they may be stacked one on top of the other.
Performance — The special, molded bumpers on the exterior of this case are what really make this stand out from other hard cases you’ll see online. SKB focused on a couple of areas to make sure their case was genuinely heavy-duty. The bumpers and the thick wheels certainly make traveling with the case easy, smooth, and totally protected from bumps and scrapes. However, the case is also, well, heavy. Add on the weight of your firearms and gear, and you’ll be getting quite a workout on your way to the security line at the airport. If you’ve got the muscle for it, it may be worth it.
What we say — The SKB ATA Large Double Rifle Hard Case is the best choice for those who want the maximum amount of security for their weapons and expect to have their case naturally bump or grind against other luggage.
- Molded bumpers on exterior
- Heavy duty wheels
- TSA approved
- Heavy to pull or carry
Our Favorite Double Rifle Case
Our favorite double rifle case went to Plano’s hard case. A hard case is really the way to go to stay on the safe side. It may seem like rolling Plano’s hard case around even to a range might seem like a little much at first, but that’s why we chose this option over the SKB choice. If you prefer a soft case, then the GGD MOLLE Tactical Double Rifle Case is an excellent option. It is also our best budget buy.
