Review: i needed a big bag. The Raven backpack was pretty big but cumbersome because it's a backpack. Every store i checked either had ridiculously expensive bags or everything was out of stock.

i found out about Bodybags (i forget how) & looked into it. Found an online store that sold them & ordered one. When i got it, i had to "assemble" it. Nothing major, just unfold the section dividers & put them in the bag according to the provided diagram.

The bag is very nice. Lots of sectioned compartments for everything & foam padding for the two marker slots (slots can hold up to 4 markers, depending on their sizes). There are no barrel slots - they give you 2 barrel tubes instead, which is ok. Also comes with a small lock for the main compartment zipper.

My bag has: 2 markers, 2 hoppers, 2 barrels, 1 tank, 1 mask, 4 spare pods, extra paint, harness, 2 jerseys, pants, knee & elbow pads, gloves, flip-flops, umbrella hat (folds up), a dozen rags, 4 squeegees, barrel condom & there's still room for another tank, another marker, another mask & more paint/pods.

* Now the bad part - it took an entire month to get it. Exactly 4 weeks to the day just for them to SHIP it. Because of the wait, they offered me free embroidery. But when i got it, they messed THAT up (they got a letter wrong).

i was able to fix the stitching goof on my own but i let them know, anyway. They said to ship it back to them & they'd send me two free 140 ct pods to make up for the shipping. Idiots. For me to ship that whole bag back would cost me at least $10 and i can get two pods for $3 PLUS i'd have to wait AGAIN for my bag.
Conclusion: Bag is great & deserves a 10 but the customer service & embroidery error knock it down 3 points.

Dispute:
unless you bought the bag from the company that sells it don't give the bag a -3 for bad customer service. the review is for the bag it self not the people you bought it from. i agree about the service though, really bad

They messed up the embroidery as well as the shipping. And the rating is just a number - if you read my entire review, you'd see that i like the actual bag a lot. To be fair, though, i clarified my conclusion and gave them an extra point, because i still use the bag and never intend on replacing it.

okay i was just making a point, i actually bought one and am hoping to get it sometime soon. -10 for postal service though. the review is good though. the knockdown counts if you bought the bag directly from the company. i did not mean to bash you for it, same sort of idea happened to me with a pair of c6 pants and action village

I know mike the guy who made the body bag he is a cool guy. if you told him or kith what all was wrong they would have fixed it for you. and got it to you faster and the bit about you having to unfold the dividers you got to think of how big and the shipping cost you would have to pay for the bulk . the team I played for had the first run of the body bag. and most of the guys on the team still have them. and the only complaint that I know mike has had was from a guy who did not like the skull logo. and said he was offended from it. and mike still tried to help the guy out. well any one who wants to email me feel free I will try my best to help out any and all
thank you

I thought that was a great review. I liked how you showed what you all have in your bag. It gives me an idea of whether or not it's the right size for me. Thanks man.

I don't get what everyone is saying about bad service. I didn't order a paintball bodybag, but I ordered a Stock Class Harness from Doro and got it in 2 days, just in time for a game. That's the fastest I've ever gotten anything online(without overnight).
