Review of the Mega Paintball Bodybag...
 
I was tired of taking 3 or 4 small bags to the field to carry all my stuff, so I have been looking around for a "BIG" gear bag, I found what I was looking for in the Mega Paintball Bodybag from PaintballBodyBags.com

I called the manufacturer and placed my order. A week or so later my new bag showed up.

Bag in the box



The first thing I noticed is that the bag area when completely broken down is not that big. It can easily be stored without taking up the whole closet.

Here are all the parts that were in the box ready to be assembled, and you can see it is not that much space collapsed (don't let that fool you)

Bag Parts



After reading the one page instruction sheet I got to put the bag together. It was very easy. The directions were concise and easy to follow. The interior compartments are made out of a tough plastic like material. I was told by the manufacturer that is the same material the bottoms of snow boards are made of, needless to say very durable. They provide two large pieces of foam for the gun compartments, and they fit perfectly.

There are two gun pockets and four square compartments in the main section and two more square compartments in the pocket by the wheels for tank storage. The front compartment does not have any dividers.

Compartments in the bag



Let me tell about some of the very cool features.

In one side of the main compartment there is a pass through hole so if you have a gun setup with a long barrel it can fit through the hole.

Barrel Pass Through



The bag is made out of very durable material and the zippers and pull are all high quality. They even include a lock and keys to secure the main compartment. There is a small ID badge slot to put your info if you would like. There are two wheels on the one end of the bag and the bag rolls very smoothly, even when loaded. On the opposite side there is an adjustable strap that you use to pull the bag. There is an oversized shoulder strap that is attached to the top of the bag with heavy duty clips. They provide two long barrel tubes to store barrels and a clear zippered pouch for small odds and ends. I used mine to keep the manuals for my equipment in.

Wheels and bag logo



Now its time for the packing of the bag. I got an insane amount of equipment in the bag. The top end pocket fit two pairs of goggles and there lenses, plus a whole lot more. A loader with its case, goggle cleaning supplies and goggle bags. The bottom pocket held both my HPA tanks, covers, a remote and my spare parts kit. The main section was unreal. Three markers, one with a warp drive attached, two loaders, six pods, gloves, pack, gun stand, chrono, head wrap, and more. The front pocket held all of my barrels and barrel accessories. A full freak kit, three extra tips, water proof barrel cover, swabs and squeegees and three barrel covers. The flap pocket had all my extra batteries and my tools, Swiss Army knife tool and Allen keys.

With the bag completely loaded it was not unruly to hold or sling over my shoulder, the strap is nice and thick so it won’t dig into your skin.

They provide a diagram with suggested locations for things which is nice if you are not the kind of person who likes to organize. They did it for you, just follow the map.

Here is everything that went into the bag

Over all I love this bag. There is MORE than enough room to fit all your gear. I had room to put more in if I really wanted to. The manufacture can custom embroider the bag with your name or team logo and the best part is it won’t brake the bank to get one.

They also have a slightly smaller bag the Super Paintball Bodybag that hold two guns and does not have wheels.

The company also has a small "carry with you on the field bag" called the BodyChair. It has a small seat and room for paint and tools. As soon as they are ready I will be getting one. Don't worry I will update my review!

Nice Job Paintball Bodybags!
