Dye – Dye Ranger 08 backpack

We went through almost all the possible paintball gear out there and as you can see it’s quite a luggage to carry around. And sure you can use any regular bag or something, but it’s always a plus to have some more options. And there are. Starting with Dye Ranger 08 Backpack. That’s a pretty good looking backpack if you ask me, and pretty comfortable too. It’s big, it’s practical and I’m pretty sure you’re gonna like it. It has a large main pocket that’s gonna fit most of your gear and for the rest of it there are five smaller pockets on the front, one on each side, a laptop sleeve accessible from the side and the main pocket and an mp3 player pocket on the top flap. There are three sleeves inside the bag to separate gear from clean clothes. The backpack straps and back are nicely padded so no matter how heavy the thing is it will still be comfortable. And in case you’re not carrying much stuff you have the option to compress the bag with the side Velcro tabs and make it smaller. Read the provided info about it and we’ll move on:
•    Unique military style duffle backpack
•    Multiple handles for easy carrying
•    Large outer cargo pockets
•    Wide open main compartment
•    Heavy duty buckle closure system
•    Adjustable padded backpack straps
•    Side Velcro tabs to compress bag with smaller loads
•    Dimensions L24x W15x H16
Dye did a very nice job with this backpack, but there are some things they could have done better. What I don’t like is that the body of the bag is completely flexible (except for the padded back), and there is no frame to help keep its shape. It’s kinda irritating. Also be careful as there’s no padding on the bottom. If you don’t want to break something make sure you don’t drop it on the ground too hard. The closure system is pretty good one, but the somehow the top flap is pretty loose so you better figure out a way to close it more tightly. If you can deal with those tiny flaws, this is the bag for you. It will cost you about $75 (which is not cheap), but it’s gonna last you for quite a while and I’m sure it will meet all your expectations.
