Improve the way to travel with the Vanguard/Sentry
on April 28, 2013
The Battle bag is aimed at Vanguard or Sentry owners who want a more robust solution for taking the case on the road. I have had the Vanguard Halo version since it was available (previously I had the G155/Sentry) and have taken it with me on road trips and flights and every time it performed admirably. There are two things I was not liking too much: the D rings and the fact that I was being too consciously careful with how I positioned the vanguard on the car or plane (mostly car). Although the case never opened accidentally I was always worried about this happening, and this is where the Battle Bag plays its role.
What I like about the Battle Bag:
+The Vanguard is safely inside protected against scratches or the possibility of opening up by accident. Now I can be a little careless with placing it on the car.
+No more dealing with the D rings, now I feel safer when pulling up the Vanguard to carry it around
+High quality construction and material. It just looks and feels like it will last.
+The front pocket allows for safely storing games, 6 power outlet extension and headphones in the A40 case or one similar (keep in mind, the more you stuffed the front pocket the bigger footprint the Bag will have on your travel)
+It has a clean look for using in public
+the zipper is robust and easy to close and open.
+The part of the bag that goes against the user's body has a soft breathable material to maximize comfort
What I don't like:
-there is no small pocket with a zipper. It would be nice to have a small pocket inside the front one to store small accessories or keys. This is not a deal breaker, but it would be very useful to have this small pocket available. (the front pocket closes with a buckle)
~stuffing the front pocket will make it too big for easy travel, but this is not a defect on the bag is just a comfort limitation
Now taking into account the price tag, this bag delivers on its main purpose with top notch quality. For those who have GAEMS products may be aware of the high quality GAEMS products deliver and this bag follows the norm. For the sake of comparison I can put the bag very close to what the Astro Gaming Bags deliver in quality (and I can testify those bags are BEAST), and the price of the Battle Bag is just about the same as a new game so is not overpriced or anything. Also if one is not using it for the Vanguard it is still a good bag for anything else (books, clothes etc) so one gets a very good value for the price.
