Paintball
Experience:
6 months
Marker Setup: Tippmann A-5 with Response Trigger, Flatline Barrel, in-line Tank Pressure Gauge, Double Trigger.
Strengths: well padded, good space without being huge
Weaknesses: barely long enough to fit my a-5 with the flatline barrel still on
Review: the bag is well padded, there's nice neoprene 3 barrel holder on one side, a large pocket on the other. the internal padded dividers and tank holder velcro in place so they can be moved around or removed completely.

I have a large duffel bag from army navy surplus for all my gear, I just wanted a bag for my A-5 that would let me keep the barrel on. most bags are designed where you take the barrel off the marker, which with the flatline is annoying since you'll have to align the barrel every time you remove it and put it back on.

this bag is exactly what I wanted, the gun fits with the flatline and in-line tank gauge still attached, barely, but it does (2 more inches longer would be perfect). for those who use normal barrels, the 3 barrel holder is sweet, if I get another barrel down the road I'm allready set.

I really doubt that 3 markers would fit in there, my A-5 with the cyclone feeder is pretty wide, and since I don't take the barrel off, there's just enough room for the whole gun and the hopper inside the bag. again, this is perfect for me, but if you have a spare gun, you're going to have trouble fitting them both. I have the gun with the spare parts kit in there, I have room for more if I need it, but that's what I use my large duffel bag for.

Conclusion: if you're like me and need a good bag for your A-5, or just need to carry one marker and your extra barrels in one bag, this is sweet! need to carry two or more markers in one bag? you might need to look elsewhere.

Thanks for your review. I was having a hard time trying to find a bag that would fit my Tippmann A-5 with the hopper on. I just ordered it hope it works out good.

I agree, when you store your gun, you are supossed to take of the barrel.
