Planet Eclipse was nice enough to send over one of their highly talked about GX Kitbags for us to take a look at and review. One of the biggest issues I face as an airsofter, and I hear this same thing from some paintballer friends of mine, is how to transport all of your gear to and from game events. Both of us – airsofter and paintballer alike, tend to accumulate a lot of stuff… And, for some reason, we feel the need to take it with us to every game. That being said, we are always looking for large kit bags to store everything. Thankfully, the GX Kitbag from Planet Eclipse fits the bill and will be a boon to your gear-carrying needs.
The Planet Eclipse GX Kitbag is made from a rugged polyester material and features a strong, rigid external shell that allows it to keep its shape when bumped around. Also, one of the smartest features of the GX Kitbag is that it has two robust wheels on it and a retractable pull handle. This allows you to navigate the Planet Eclipse GX Kitbag around like a large piece of luggage. In fact, thanks to its wide wheels, it is so stable when being pulled about that I would trust my actual business clothes in it for long trips. The internal storage space is no joke with an approximate volume of 100 liters – that’s over 26 gallons of liquid! Disclaimer: GamingShogun.com does not recommend that you attempt to travel with the GX Kitbag filled up with 26 gallons of liquid, that would just be strange.
