Taffy was an Australian war horse from the famed Australian Light Horse Brigade.  A “Waller” and their rider were considered a team and working together was vital to the success of the overall unit.  Taffy and his rider Corporal Austin Edwards served in the Middle East during World War I.  During the Battle of Romani, Corporal Edwards was wounded.  Taffy stood still under fire so his team mate could remount, proving the training and love that was shared between rider and mount.

“Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!” he said.
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.  –Charge of the Light Brigade Alfred, Lord Tennyson
(I love the poem, as most military men do, even though the history on this poem was for a different outfit during the Crimean War in 1800’s.  It still fits.  Those Aussies went through some hell).

The Taffy Field Bag is a minimalist bag.  It can strap on to the front of your rifle with the included straps.  The non slip material that is on the two largest surfaces of the bag give your rifle strong purchase on nearly any surface and the nonslip surface strapped against the rifle helps give even more friction between the rifle and its obstacle making for a steady platform.  When using it as a rear bag just pop the D-ring toggles and the straps are already set for your rifle making it easy to to re-attach when the need arises.

Taffy is 7 inches long, 4 inches wide and 2.5 inches thick.  It weighs about 1 lb 13 oz with our standard fill.  The Velcro opening makes it easy to adjust or change out your fill.  Making the Taffy a customizable piece of kit to suit the shooter.
