Products Used:
Northface back pack or Redz gearbag
Marker Setup: Angel Speed, Angel Force4, RatPulse and Spyder clone.
Strengths: Roomy enough for all your gear, but doesn't take upall your trunk space.
Weaknesses: Expensive and the marker goes outside of the bag.
Review: I was in the market for a bag to lug around most of my paintball gear. I was using a Northface backpack, which was too small. Then I stepped up to a full sized duffle bag, which was too large and did not provide my marker any protection.

I then did some research, and found the DYE Weekender. Lot's of places had it out of stock, and I heard good reviews from vendors that carried the item.

After a week my local store, ActionVillage had 1 in stock and so I jumped all over it.

It is perfect size and has tons of compartments for most my gear. The only downside was that I had to put my marker OUTSIDE of my bag...which could get knocked around and scuffed up...so I bought a REDZ neoprene cover (specifically made for Angels) and then strapped it to the bag. It works perfect, and gives me that little bit of added protection that I needed to sleep easier at night.

After about 3 months of using this bag, the little padding thing that attaches to the bag strap came off due to a poor stitch job. Everything else is holding up well on the bag though...
Conclusion: This is an expensive solution to my equipment carrying needs, which may not be for all. For me I like the look and quality of this well made bag. If it were slightly larger, and less expensive I would have given this marker a 10.

Review: I got this because my jt bag couldnt hold al my gear and it was pissing me off a lot. So when i got this i was happy to know it holds all of my gear my gun, pack,pods,parts kit,barrels, hopper, mask and hpa system and theres still room.
Conclusion: I love this bag very much and i wouldnt trade it in for anything else, and it is durable as hell and it has a really cool look to it and i just love it.

Products Used:
Regular back packs and duffle bags
Marker Setup: Evil Pimp (Pipe kit/Halo B)
A-5 (Flatline/LowComp/M4Stock/ResponseTrigger/RedDotSite)
Strengths: Very high quality
Looks great
Holds a decent amount of gear
Weaknesses: Too small for a whole weekend!
Review: Let me just start by saying this is a great bag!! I love it! It's real nice looking, holds all the "Clothing" gear u need. You'll definitely need a gun case if u want to use this bag. The main compartment is good for holding ur clothes, pads, jersey, & shoes (i use Dye ATC's and they come with a bag to put them in so u dont get paint and shells all over the weekender). The other compartments I use to hold my HaloB and N2 bottle. But thats about all this bag carries. Buy a gun case for ur marker, tools, and miscellaneous stuff.
Conclusion: Its good, but it could be bigger. But it's still great for the price, and it does everything Dye claims it does! That's why I'm giving it a 10, if u want to keep ur marker in ur bag, upgrade to one of Dye's more expensive bags.

Smoke Reloader B

Tippmann A-5 M4 mod with 16" Boomy
Strengths: Space
Light
Doubles as vacation bag
Weaknesses: None really i can think of.
Review: Its another over the top product from Dye. It has 2 pouches on each side which are spacey enough for hoppers, tanks, or packs of socks. In one of the pouches it has an area to hold pods. The inner bag itself is roomy enough for several markers and clothes. Really whatever you want to put in it you can.
Conclusion: Can carry all i can think of...large yet light....and looks pretty cool.

Products Used:
Rubber maid crates, and gym bags.
Marker Setup: ICD Promaster
Autococker
HPA Tank 68ci
Freak Barrel System
Strengths: - Tough
- Good space to keep your accessories
- Lots of pockets

Weaknesses: Not enough space for everything.
Review: This bag is great. Very tough, quality stitching and construction, and good design. You get what you pay for.

The draw back of this bag however, this won't be enough space for all of your gear. I bought a separate bag for my markers, but this bag can hold your tank(s), hopper(s), barrels and tools that go along with it.

Don't get me wrong however, if you travel light, this bag will work. It just didn't fulfill all my needs.
Conclusion: I would recommend this because its useful, high quality, and looks pretty wicked.

Good buy, but if you want an all-in-one bag, this may not be for you.
