Won this in a tourney, hence the high value rating (and price). I had been switching between large roller bags (mega bodybag then redz roller) and small bags (redz small bag & plain duffle). The large rollers were too big to move around everywhere & the small redz bag didn't hold enough while the duffle didn't have separated compartments (which i prefer).

Since this was a prize, decided to make it my main bag and it's working out ok. Holds all the necessities (hopper, tank, toolcase, gun, barrel kit, rags, other tools, squeegees, spare parts) & even room for spare clothes. There's a clip on the front for a mask but the mask would hang by the strap & i like keeping my gogs separate from other gear.

There are some questionable features, though, like the funky back pocket that folds out at the bottom. Am i supposed to stick a full gun setup in that? It's big enough for a whole setup but not thick enough for the hopper & tank.

And the long side pocket - it seems like a tank is supposed to go there, and it stretches to accomodate, but it makes the whole bag awkward, offsetting the weight.

There's a felt-lined pocket on the front but i have no idea why it's felt-lined. It can't be a lens pocket, because it's too flat. For sunglasses maybe?

The top flap clips shut but the straps for the clips are too short so they slip out easily. Of course, the pockets that it covers have a draw-string & zipper respectively, which holds it secure enough.

Well, not really concerned too much with the funky design of some of these sections. It was a free bag, after all.

Pros: Lots of room, sweet looking, plenty of pockets
Cons: Nothing major, maybe a little beefing up
If we had a long hike to the staging area, my cheaply made shoulder-strap bag just didn't cut it, so I thought a backpack style bag would work good - and it does. I can fit almost all my gear in this thing:

- Vest
- Ion, even with the stock on it
- BDU top
- 4 pods
- 1 bag of paint
- Loader
- My HUGE 114 ci tank
- Mask clips on the front
- Swab and small tool kit w/ batteries

The only thing I cant fit in there is my Hammerhead kit. Maybe if I get better at packing it I can even fit that in.

It appears to be well made, but I haven't really put it through the ropes yet. The nylon interior makes it very easy to clean.

As long as you don't have too much gear, then this thing is definitely the way to go.
