If you have some more money to spend take a look at this next bag option. The Dye Navigator 2008 is certainly not for everyone, but absolutely a great product. It’s practically two bags that clip together with 4 large, adjustable clips and can be hauled around as one. The first bag is pretty much a travel bag where you can keep your everyday clothes and accessories. Its entire bottom has reinforced plastic that extends to the sides and front of the bag to prevent wearing out and tear. It consists of two compartments – one for your clothes and one for whatever you decide. It has plenty of space in it and is pretty practical. The bag also has a hard plastic handle for grabbing onto when you need to lift the bag up and two rollerblade wheels that look pretty durable for easy and smooth rolling. The second bag is the gear bag. It has no hard surface or luggage rails on, just padding on the bottom. It’s big enough to fit all of your gear, but still has plenty additional pockets for use. There are also shoulder straps (padded) and a waist and chest strap for carrying the bag around as a backpack. And if you don’t want to carry it, just like the travel bag, it features its own set of wheels. Here’s the provided information about the Navigator 2008:

“The Navigator is the original paintball gear bag that completely separates into two halves. This unique design allows you to separate your dirty field gear from your clean street clothing. Fill the top section with all your guns, goggles, jerseys, pants, you name it. Then keep all of your clean clothes in the bottom section, allowing you to go out to the celebration dinners in style. The top section of the Navigator converts to a backpack with padded straps and back support, while the bottom section can be left at the hotel with all of your clean clothes for the night life. Both top and bottom sections now feature wheels for easy transport. The Navigator can hold up to three guns, one of them still with the tank on it. You can also store your goggles without the worry of deforming them while it is left in the trunk. The bottom section features two large compartments. One to store all your clean folded clothes and the other is waterproof for all of your bathroom supplies.”
Just like with every other product there are some things that could have been done better. Nothing too major believe me, but still worth mentioning. Like the fact that there is no telescoping handle. The featured wheels don’t make too much sense when there’s no telescoping handle (not to me anyway). Also the backpack straps could have used a bit more padding, but that’s not too big of a deal in my opinion. Other than that the Navigator is really a great bag to have. The build quality is simply excellent, something we’re used to when talking about Dye products. It’s gonna cost you thought. The price for this bag goes up to $200. Pretty steep, but totally worthy if you ask me. For those who can afford it – don’t hesitate getting it.
