Ranger is a shorter version of the proven DefenCell LITE with the same strong cellular construction and durable materials. The Ranger is exceptionally lightweight, weighing only 1.6kgs, rolls up to the size of yoga mat and can be filled in less than ten minutes by hand, however it is the equivalent of over forty sandbags (7kgs+). Ranger is ideal for firing positions and pop-up target protection, and being completely non-metallic, ensures no risk of ricochet or secondary shrapnel. An optional filling frame can be provided for filling multiple units. The unique open honeycomb structure allows the Ranger to be easily emptied and the units are re-usable and durable. High UV resistance is built into the fabric ensuring longevity of use.
