Review: Compartmentilisation
Upper section
This is both one of the good features of the bag and one of its downfalls the bag is divided into several secitons this can make fitting large woodsball markers dificult although it shouldnt afect tournament players too much, I need to remove the stock and barrel/shreoud from by phenom for it to fit into the main compartment. however the compartmentilisation does prevent things from moving around. there are plenty of pockets on most of the internal sides making it easy to keep track of small bits.
Lower section
the lower section is in two compartments one intended for shoes and one for everything else however the shoe compartment can be folded so that there is one large comparment. there is a set of restraning straps on the bottom to hold down things that are stored there. there are several pockets on the top of the flap on the bottom.

Size
this bag is huge. this means it can store a lot of kit but is also a big bag to store, however you can slightly fold the top section down to make it smaller. the botom section is rigid though.
to give an indication of how much you can fit within this is what i fitted in (there was still some free room but not much.

Upper Section
4* Ions
1 X7 Phenom
1 X7 Phenom Colapsable stock

1* X7 flatline

(Total 1.6K paint within)

2 Air tanks
1 remote line

2 sets of allan keys
3 squgees

1 Bag BB's

1 Mask
1 saftey glasses
2 sets of gloves
2 battlepacks
1 three point sling
1 Dye Knee Pads
8 Barrel socks

Lower section
2* PMR 2010 boxed

1 Air tank

70 PP3 Batteries

2 Binatone 550 Travel packs (aproximatley the same as a box of paint together)
1 Chrono

1 box of paint

1 Sleeping Bag
1 Tac Vest
1 set of DPM clothing (Trosers + Shirt)

Wheels
the wheels on the bag are only really sutable for moving over solid ground if you atempt to move it over soft ground the wheels will dig in and cause the bag to drag across the ground. however the upper section has backpack straps on the bottom alowing it to be moved over muddy or uneven ground with relative ease.

The build construction of the bag is excelent. in the time i have been uing it nothing has shown any signs of wear (bar the bottom which was scraped when moving it acrros soft gritty ground).
cleaning the top section of the bag is relativly easily however the botom of the top section is padding to make it easier to carry, this meant that it will be hard to clean if it gets messy or wet. the lower section looks harder to clean as the base is made of a soft fabric that dosent look waterproof however i have kept it dry so cant be sure of this.
the mantinance section of the bag is usefull although the base of the section pushes in when a heavy marker is on the repair station. I fixed this by placing small boxes at the base of the spares section although this isnt a major issue.
Conclusion: This is an excelent bag if you are after a bag with compartmentilisation or do not need a single large compartment. however if you need a bag with a single large compartment this might not be ideal unless you want to carry both sections with you at all times.
