Review: If you do not want to mess around looking for that perfect bag, the Navi is it. I never thought a gear bag could make life easier. It forces you to be organized, and it cuts down the time to get stuff together and go. My friend wasted over a half hour looking for stuff, while I just grabbed my bag (first double check everything is there) and go. Now, it takes me little time to set up for playing, because I will putz around looking for all of the little items I use. Since I know where all the smaller items will be, it takes half the time to be set.

For space, at this moment, I can carry all my camo, change of clothes, and paintball equipment. Right now, I have my: marker, 2 hoppers, 20 Oz. CO2 tank, 45Ci 4500 N2 tank, mask, 2 pairs of gloves, pods, harness, 3 barrels (2 14 inch 1 13 inch), cleats, spare parts, tools, knee pads, spare lens in case, and more to list. But I do have more room for markers, extra pods, and whatever else I buy. I know some of the stuff I do not really need, but I bring it in case my friends need something. There is a wet item section, obviously, to keep wet items, like cleats, after days use, away from other items in the bag.

This bag is designed to carry 3 markers and 8 barrels. 4 slots look to carry barrels of max size of 14 inches. The other side could carry larger barrels, like 20 inches. The measurements made are conservative.

If this is too big for someone to carry, this bag has multiple handles to either carry, pull (has 2 wheels at one end), and lift. It is nice so you will not hurt your back or something. I have friends who own hunting bags that are bigger than this that only have 2 carrying handles, and whoever made those bags did not have much forethought like dye had.

Side note: I think this is a sharp looking bag. It looks impressive to others. Also, the center zipper can be annoying to open/close, but that is a real minor. Never really had a problem with the middle zipper, just take your time. As for price, I paid $200 for it, but you get what you pay for. Yes, you can find a gym bag for a lot cheaper, but it will lack the organization, space, and efficiency that this bag has. I've used gym bags before, and they are more of a pain.
Conclusion: This bag is for you and your equipment. If you rent and are planning to get into buying your own, this may not be for you right away, but overtime you will accumulate some items. So, it may be wise to buy this before buying another cheaper bag. It will make your life easier on gameday. The only reason I used another bag is that I already owned it. Now the gym bag collects dust. The Navi is the way to go.
