Review: I bought this bag because I'm a Woodballer who has a lot of gear, and I was previously carrying 2 bags of equipment, not including my tac-harness and shinguards. Then I had to carry paint, on top of all that.

Strengths

Huge!
This bag holds both my main and backup rig, two air tanks, two HALO/Reloader hoppers, my mask, shin guards, tactical-harness, gloves, barrel sleeves, multiple barrels, remote, neck guard, six 160-round pods, and all my tools and batteries. About the only things that didn't fit in this were my ghillie suit and Phantom.

The only way I could ask for more room is if, somehow, the laws of physics were altered, and my bag was bigger on the inside than the outside. I know that Dye and Smart Parts are already researching this, but it is being met with protest by Steven Hawking.

Compartmentalized
All of this room is divided by rigid plastic dividers, and it also has egg-crate foam for the two marker compartments. This keeps your gear from shifting, and it protects your beloved markers from damage.

Price
At about $100 retail, this enormous bag is at least $50 cheaper than many other gear bags, on the market.

Weaknesses

Lack of Telescoping Handle
It does allow you to wheel it, while holding a strap, but for us tall folks, this can be a bit awkward. A telescoping handle would allow for easier wheeling. However, it should be noted, that for me, this is hardly a deal-breaker, but would have been more of a convenience.

Small Wheels
This is a bag that was meant for the outside. The wheels are a bit small for being easily wheeled on uneven or rocky ground. Rolling it indoors, it's a different matter, so if you were traveling in a train station, you'd be fine. Again, this is more of an inconvenience than a deal-breaker.
Conclusion: I can't say enough about this bag. It's the perfect bag for people with a lot of gear. It is about 3 feet long, so it's no little thing, but if you, like me, are used to lugging multiple bags at the field, consider this bag.

Final rating: WIth 5 being the average and 10 doing everything advertised with no suggestions for improvement . . . 9. It's a great price for a bag that holds just about everything. I only wish it had a telescoping handle and bigger wheels, but those are simply for convenience.
