Review: After using an old back pack for several months, I decided to move onto something geared toward holding most of my gear. I really just wanted something to hold my cleats, jersey, pants, hopper, tools, pods, mask, tank, ect. I keep my gun in a Redz neo sleeve, as I just don't trust having it stacked in with other crap.

The overall construction is above par. Thick Velcro handle and reinforced stitching all around. The bottom side of the bag is lightly padded, keeping items from bulging out. The shoulder strap has a swivel connector, so the it doesn't become tangled. There is a clear ID pocket, for unknown uses. Two handles on each end make ease of pulling the bag out from under the bed.

The bag is divided into four compartments, one along the side, large center, and two on the other side. The two small pockets serve well to hold tools and oil, while the other smaller pocket hold my Halo fairly well. The larger pocket can hold six or seven pods. The large side and two smaller pockets have extra material sown in to allow the pocket to expand; a nice feature to find and similar in camping back packs. The center compartment size can be compromised by the expanding pockets. It's best to load the center first, then pack the little stuff. One of the pockets has a CD player icon, suggesting possibly people would rather listen to music? You're guess is as good as mine. The outside pockets are not protected, beyond the thickness of the bag's material.

The bag is dark colored and doesn't show or retain dirt easily. I put a few coats of Scotch Guard on the bag to make it more water resistant.

Conclusion: I received this bag as a thoughtful gift from my girlfriend that was sneaking over my shoulder while I was looking at the specs on Dye's website. For less money, I could have purchased a bag from Army Surplus, been just as happy, and had a similar product.

If I could submit a change to the bag, it would be to put a protective flap on the underside of the zipper to keep fabrics from being jammed in the zipper. The zipper is fully exposed and will, like all bags of the same design, pinch or jam when fabric is caught. Less than $2 of material would make this bag better.

For the size and intent purpose, I don't think Dye targeted many of the players. It does have some nice features, but I believe it's geared more toward people that like logos, than people who want function. You can fit a majority of your goods in the bag, but you'll still have to carry something else.
