Review: I got the large gearbag from Redz for a Christmas (2004) present from my Grandma on my Mom’s side of the family. My Mom decided to play a trick on me and try to convince me the huge box was for my Grandma and it contained some kind of an umbrella stand because she’s into the whole Red Hat Society (I think that’s right, anyways) club-thing, so they figured that would be a good cover-up. We ended up putting the huge box the gearbag came in, along with 4 people’s luggage for 4 days and all the presents we were taking up there with us to give to the rest of our family, in the trunk of my Mom’s Camry LE and going to Kentucky.

When I unwrapped the box and ripped it open because I knew what it was after they finally told me the gift was for me, I was amazed to see the size of the bag. I thought it would be smaller than it actually was. I’m about 5’ 10” and the bag comes up to my waist when it’s full. Don’t trust it to stand on it’s own on the backside of the bag because it won’t stand up, it’ll teeter for a few seconds to a minute and then fall on whatever’s nearby. The second thing I noticed when I first unwrapped the bag was that it had a hard plastic-like bottom covered in the material the entire bag is made out of (cross between nylon and neoprene; everything Redz makes is either nylon, plastic, or neoprene it seems like…). When I opened up the zipper inside the bag that covers up the “hard plastic-like bottom” it turned out to be a sheet of hard plastic, then a sheet of 34” thick or so foam, and then another sheet of hard plastic. That seems to be a pretty durable design in my opinion, and the foam seems like it would be good for shock absorption for those of you that have to deal with baggage handlers to get to tournaments.

Now, onto what it holds. I can fit the following stuff in there:

Main Compartment
Impulse & Spyder Xtra

Crossfire 88 & 47ci HPAs, and a 20oz PE CO2 tank

3 spare barrels (there are 3 slots for barrels on the underside of the “lid” part of the bag)

10 pods (140rd)

Redz Flex-Tech 4.3 pack

Redz Dimension 3.2 pack & Comfort belt

13” toolbox

Quart-sized spray bottle w water inside

Crosman Pulse M70 mini-electric airsoft gun

First Outside Compartment

7 battleswabs, 2 pull-through squeegees, and 1 stick squeegee

2 barrel condoms

Impulse Seal Kit

1 roll of toilet paper (we’ve only got porta-potties at my field)

1000-count bag of rubber bands (holding hopper lids closed, holding parts together, etc.)

Flip-Flops

Second Outside Compartment

Redz Folding Chair

Roll of paper towels

Mask Compartment

Proflex

Proteus II

Spare lens for Proflex

2 visors

Goggle cloth

ClothesStuff Compartment (At the back end)

1 pair Dye ’04 Hybrid Pants

1 Dye C4 jersey

1 regular black T-shirt

1 do-rag

1 headband

1 pair of Proto gloves

2 pairs of low-cut socks

1 2000-round speedloader of airsoft BBs for my mini-electric MP5



As you can see, I can hold a lot of stuff in this bag.

I give it a 910 because of the zipper pull-tabs breaking off within 2 days of me having the bag, and I didn’t pull on them barely at all.
Conclusion: Buy it if you've got the money, it's a nice bag other than the zippers and the stitching in some places.
