Gear Bags/Carrying Cases

So I'm looking to reduce the footprint of the amount of crap I carry at any given time, or at least make things neater. Does anyone have a recommended carrying case for something like a T68 Paintball Pistol?

Currently my gear bag is a Redz gearbag I've had for 10 years running, and honestly it's just a bitch and a half carrying that thing around.


I have the following:

Empire Trracer
T68 Pistol
Minimag
Tons of 12g Co2 (no tank yet)
10 round tubes & 200 round hopper
Empire E-Vents Mask
Protective & playing Gear (vest, elbow pads, paintball clothes)
Tools & Spare Parts

Get a paintball backpack. Good ones cost $70-$100 and allow you to carry just enough gear for the day on your back. Some of the better ones (like those from Planet Eclipse) expand out to bigger bags (duffle sized) with two easy handles.

Empire 2016 F6 Backpack
Planet Eclipse 2014 Gravel Backpack - Pixel Red
Planet Eclipse 2014 Gravel Backpack - Pixel Red

Or get a duffle-style bag:

Planet Eclipse GX Holdall Gear Bag - Fire
NXE Players Duffle Bag - Black/Grey

There's plenty of others out there for you too...just do some research: Paintball Gear Bags & Backpacks

BY NO MEANS am I endorsing "ANuS" for your source to buy gear from (I'm not a huge fan of them, personally...I only buy gear from them when I can't find it anywhere else), but they're an awesome resource for research purposes. Rory does some pretty in-depth video reviews/overviews of almost all of the gear they sell.

Anyway, good luck!

If that is all you have then your gearbag should be fine. Your list is not much. If you want to carry less then just get a backpack and pack what you're going to use that day.

I bring about every piece of paintball equipment I have to the field. I never know what I feel like playing. It all fits in a 40qt rolling tote I got from walmart ($24). Typically I have 7 guns ( 3 electros, blowback, 2 pumps and Tipx), 3 tanks, 2 masks, 2 powered hoppers, 200rd hopper, 100rd hopper, 50 12 grams, 10 140rd pods, 10 10 rd tubes, 2 pod harness, 4 pod harness, 6 pod vest, Tipx pistol belt with mags, towels, micro fibers, tool kit, extra lens, barrel bags, etc, etc, etc. It is nice being able to roll it everywhere. The only chore is to lift it into my truck and onto the picnic tables.

I am not one to give advice here. I showed up for a pump game with 2 40 gallon storage bins, and a cardboard box. That did not include the gear on the back seat.
