Help me decide which gear bag to get!!!

I am not gonna spend over 100 bucks on the gearbag and I wanted help to decide if I should get the Tippman rolling gear bag or the suprisingly nice Spyder gear bag.

40$ Costo FUL rolling duffel. Does the same job for a fraction of the cost... unless you absolutely need to use something as rolling product placement. :3

Unless you need something as durable as a tank, I would look at Walmart and target for really inexpensive options.
I picked mine up at Walmart for $30.
The biggest difference between a $100 bag and a $200 bag is going to be how well the sides of the bag keep form and don't sag when it's not beeping full.
That will make it extremely hard to roll consistently.
And make sure what ever bag you get has roller blade wheels and not a crappy plastic substitute.
If you really want a paintball brand bag, look for a used one.
Eclipse or Empire is what I would recommend

I have a generic gear bag that I payed $60 for. The only difference is like the $200 eclipse bags are they are better made. More indistructable. Have a luggage handle. And some safety things so people can't steal your gear. It is hard to pay $200 for a bag.

I got a free JT Gearbag with my cheapo walmart JT gun (don't even remember the name of that thing...I think it started with a V?). It's lasted me 3 years so far, and still in good shape. Just pick up a Nike duffell bag from Ross. $30-$40 for a travelers duffel, you can't beat that.
I'd rather not pay $60 extra for 4-5 "special" compartments.

See if you can a used on on this forum. I just got a Empire bag that retails for $250 for $70. It looks almost like new. Only way to tell it was used is around the wheels. I just took at wet cloth and whipped it all down and unless you are looking very close at it you would think it was brand new.

This is good for 90 bucks: http://www.ebags.com/product/ogio/ro...uctid=10204395

And I have this one in a 26" model, dont know if they carry the 26" ebag any more but they are a great bag for anything, very tough, lifetime warranty. http://www.ebags.com/product/ebags/m...oductid=837487
