Experience:

Products Used:
Soft sided bag - no comparison
Action Packer - hard sided - no comparison
Marker Setup: Hurricane w/ muzzle break, PPS Stabilizer, 12v Revvy, Remote Line
Strengths: Size: 10, It's huge. No really. Read what I crammed in this thing below:
There is the main compartment with removable dividers. I currently have it set up into three spaces (it comes with adjustable spacers).
Space #1: Hand chrono, tiny box of hose fittings, spare elbows, 4 barrels in a bag, harness w/ 4x100 pods, 12v black revvy, 12v camo revvy, a beach towel, and two straight shot squeegess
Space #2: HPA tank 133cu, HPA tank 68cu, CO2 tank 20oz, CO2 tank 10oz, HPA remote line, CO2 remote line, and a beach towel
Space #3: Redz knee pads, Red 4.3 harness with 4x140 pods, and 4x140 pods sitting loose
The rear compartment has a zip open door so it can become part of the main compartment. I just stuff an extra jersey and bandannas in this.
The front compartment fits one mask & spare lense folded up, and a Proteus w/ spare lense, and camo baseball cap.
The side pocket holds two pair of gloves but could hold more.
The side compartment (really a big pocket that bulges out the side) is meant to hold the chair with space to spare. I took out the chair and keep an 8"x11"x2" tackle box with tools in there. Plus a huge roll of duct tape. Plus a box of barrel inserts.
In the bag's lid, I crammed several extra barrel socks, and a couple of squeegees.

Organization: 9.5, All the above mentioned stuff took forever to find before. Now it's a breeze. The pull out flaps in the lid are great for a work station.

Padding: 10, Every side of this thing is padded. It's makes Samsonite look wimpy.

Double Zippers: The double zippers let you put a lock on the individual compartments if you want. In various places, there are loops that you attach things to. I've seen players run bicycle chain locks through these and attach them to poles.
Weaknesses: Weight: 8, The counter point to being able to stuff what used to take 3 bags is that it gets heavy. However, the bag comes with what has to be the nicest padded strap I've seen on any bag or professional luggage. It's tough, and attached with high end hooks to the bag. It has a sturdy handle on the end to pull it out of trunk with. Plus the bag has wheels!

The flat side pocket isn't very useful. It could be replaced by another expanded pocket, or maybe a bunch of elastic pockets to hold pods. Then you'd have even MORE room inside the bag for MORE stuff.
Conclusion: I can cram enough equipment for 2 complete players into one bag!

I currently keep my markers in separate boxes. I might get either a small bag to put them in, but I may just decide to buy another one of these and be done with it.
