ClayMORE Bag from Arclight Systems

UPDATE: Read the comments below and weigh them carefully before purchasing.

The original M18A1 Claymore Bag is renowned for its simplicity and utility. It is a versatile bag with two compartments that can be used to carry a variety of support gear. Now Arclight Systems offers an updated version of this classic called the ClayMORE Bag.

The ClayMORE bag looks much like the original M18A1 from the outside except for its updated materials and larger size. The interior hides an additional slip pocket behind the two main pockets. The bag can be carried via a fixed nylon strap.

The ClayMORE is available in standard and custom versions. The standard version has the features listed above and will be available in limited colors as a stock item for just $30. Arclight Systems intends to keep a steady stream of the standard bags in stock.

The custom version has many possible customizations like Velcro interior in any of the pockets, various sizes of elastic organization/magazine loops, additional strap options, additional material and color options, and a Velcro patch field on the flap. There are a ton of functional options that add to the base price of $30. There is a 4 to 6 week lead time on custom work.

Mike, of Arclight Systems, is quick to point out that this bag not built to be an EDC bag or a primary load carrying gear. It is built to carry ancillary items and magazines. Think of this as bag that is purpose built to replenish your primary load carrying gear.

You can find both versions of the ClayMORE on the Arclight Systems website.

      I am sorry to hear that. Did the bag that you ordered have an customizations? I know he runs at least 4-6 weeks for custom work.

      I am sure he will make this right.

    update: never heard back from Mike at Arclight and he never responded to the paypal dispute I set up against him. Got my money back from paypal, so now I need something a replacement … looking at the eagle industries active shooter bag..

    Same thing happened with me, Arclight had no problem taking my money. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and waited for the bag and nothing. Ordered on 3/4/2011 and I still have not heard anything. They will not return emails or calls. I filed a paypal claim, but it was after 45 days. Paypal is working with me but who knows. I would avoid this vendor at all costs.

    I ordered a Claymore bag from this guy too and it has been over six months. He took my money no problem and never sent the item. I am pissed too becasue PAYPAL said they can’t resolve it because it has been over 45 days. I have sent numerous messages via his website, phone calls, and now a comment on the facebook page and nothing. I read the review on here and really thought it would be a great piece of kit. I found another bag but it was not exactly what I wanted from a UK Vendor. This guy is a scam artist and needs to be brought out into the light.
