Products Used:
Empty paint boxes, old backpacks, grocery bags
Marker Setup: 2k2 LCD Angel with Eclipse blade frame, Cobra Delrin bolt, Kapp volumizer, Cobra mid-rise, Cobra ram, eVLution ][ hopper with y-board, 16" boomstick, Shocktech drop forward
Strengths: Compact size, ability to carry almost everything you need to play
Weaknesses: Can't close the sack completely with markers in their locations
Review: I purchased this sack from the JT booth at the Vegas Super-7 event (#2). It cost me $95 from the booth. I thought it was the perfect solution for carrying all of my main gear, including my Angel and my backup E-Ranger. The bag is very sturdy, and looks like it was build to last.

Inside the sack are 2 padded gear bags that are secured with velcro, and can be easily removed. Very handy indeed, yet there is where the problem lies. My E-Ranger is bone stock, and my Angel has the really shallow Shocktech drop on it. both of these markers BARELY fit into the padded gear bags. If you have a large cradle or drop, your marker won't fit in the bag. Anyhow, with my markers in place, the gear sack will not close. You can zip up the sides and latch the strap across the middle, but the side "flaps" remain loose. Just the perfect way for something loose in your bag to get lost, or for dirt, dust, and spiders to find their way into your gear.

For nearly $100 I would think that this glorified backpack would at least close when there are 2 markers in their designated locations!
Conclusion: Overall a very nice idea, but not if you want the bag to close when your $2000+ investment is inside of it.

You got ripped off getting it for $95... With more research or a good Internet source, you could have found that most places sell around $50 to $60...

Wrong answer. When I purchased it I did do the research and the price was in line with what they were selling for at the time. Please keep your negative useless comments to yourself, this is a review site not a flame site. Thanks.
