Dye Navigator 2008

A popular and HUGE gearbag used by many players including Team Impact
The BIG thing about this gearbag is the two gearbag function. This gearbag is actually TWO-IN-ONE. The clips clip together to form one huge bag. If you detach it you'll get two bag.

This gearbag is an EXTREME plus for national and international players. If you play tourneys and travel on airplanes or cars. This gearbag may be the one for you. If you exceed the luggage weight... UNCLIP IT and send it as TWO LUGGAGE. This can save you lots of $$$

The top 'second' gearbag has padding on the bottom. Wait...why is there padding there?
NO! They're hidden backpack straps. You can now have a pull luggage and a backpack!

Inside there are waterproof pouches for toiletries and shoes. There are small vent holes for your wet cleats to dry.

There are multiple compartments and sections. Padding for guns, tanks, and goggles.

  • Hold up to 8 barrels in specific elastic rings
  • Netted pockets
  • Magnetic pad for screws and springs
  • Fully padded compartments for masks and such
  • Work compartment, that makes a table when unzipped
  • No stowaway pulling handle.
