Products Used:
Redz and Dye Gear Bags. I actually prefer the Redz gear bag design much more so than the Empire, but the Empire isn't too bad.
Marker Setup: I shoot a 2K5'd GZ, Excalibur, FL Viking, Texas Storm, Ripper, Ripper 2 and Ripper 3 Intimidators. I run a Halo or an Empire Reloader B (and now a Pulse) with a PMI Pure Energy or Crossfire Tank.
Strengths: Very spacious interior with room for a variety of gear.
Weaknesses: Not enough dedicated space for markers.
Review: The Empire gear bag is a nice step up from what I was using before. I liked the fact that it came with a goggle bag and that the storage compartments were sturdy enough to hold the goggles (enough room for two pairs) without crushing them. The other side compartment is large enough to hold tanks, gear, clothing, shoes, etc. with some room left over. The interior design isn't so much to my liking. I'm not a fan of how empire has side entry into the main compartement with the annoying strip in the middle that doesn't unzip. The interior is spacious and modular. It has an insert for storing pods and another that comes out and enables you to use it as a gun mat/storage case for markers.

The disappointing thing for me with this case is that the interior doesn't have quite the horizontal length to hold multiple markers even with the modular inserts...forcing you to lay markers flat. I like the fact that the Redz bags allow more lengthwise marker storage (granted at other expenses). Beyond that, this bag is really pretty darn nice and holds a lot of gear. The straps hold up well and it rolls easily even across uneven surfaces. I've loaded it with 4 tanks, two masks, pods, gear, clothing, 5 markers and loaders and it moved quite easily.

Conclusion: A very well designed product. While there's room for improvement, it's a solid gearbag with a lot of room and upsides for use.
