It’s scary to come to a tournament and find out how your electronic bunker broke down while traveling. This fiasco threw games for many teams that were not as diligent as they should have been when packing. Your paintball technique is too valuable to just throw it in a giant disorganized duffel bag. Good players pay thousands of dollars in specialized gear; the toothed barrel on the 1,500-year-old pistol washer is not perceived lightly. A traveling paintball athlete must juggle not only the packaging of the right number of correct supplies, but also the packaging of them in a safe, secure form. The solution is to choose the right size bag for the duration of the trip and the equipment you will need. In addition to the bag specific to your marker, there are three types / sizes of bags available.
A paintball backpack is comparable in size and shape to school backpacks or a day pack used by tourists, but specializes in carrying equipment. These bags are best for carrying essential items to the field and back, but rarely have enough room to change clothes and even compete uniforms. It’s good to have your own back paintball pad just to keep important gear together (but separate from soft items) while traveling for longer periods of time. Large bags in the style of things that belong to the bags of washers, often store not only your play equipment, but also changes in clothing, uniforms and toiletries. Such bags are the best choice for night trips that last several days and of different sizes. Some are better equipped for air travel than others, but it is better to carry everything you need while driving at the event. When traveling by plane, the best bags to use are lockers for paintball suits. They are similar in size to bags with washers, but have solid outer shells or heavy fabric. Paintball suit lockers provide the best protection for the safe handling of airline equipment.
When buying a bag to carry your travel accessories, it is best to shop at a paintball store. In fact you can use any bag to transport your paintball equipment, however, if you don’t use specialized equipment, you may leave you upset and tense at your event. The main difference between standard backpacks and travel bags and paintball balls is that bags designed for paintball have specialized features. Paintball backpacks, gear bags and suit covers have velcro straps to attach materials and keep them safe during transport. The best gear bags have compartments that help separate clothing and keep contaminated and raw utensils from dry. Paintball travel bags are also comparable in price to other similar types of standard bags.
It is also important to realize that certain devices may have certain requirements, making it safer to travel. For example, your sand mask should be neatly packaged. Many paintball masks are made of plastic that surrounds the lens, which is often easily deformed when hammered into a bag with everything else. If this happens or your lenses are scratched, you will be distracted for the whole day by uncomfortable eye protection, and the game will not be so much fun. Transporting a paintball mask is best done with either a good velvet soft bag and / or a hard goggles. While this is another piece of luggage with you, it’s the best way to store and wear paintball goggles without twisting the plastic and scratching the lens.
Transportation of your tank balloon – perhaps the most complex set of equipment. When you fly, you can only travel with an empty tank; You cannot fly with a full tank of compressed air as this will become a bomb and it is against the law. However, you can drive with a full air tank. The best compressed air tanks in paintball cost over $ 200, so even the slightest scratch or tiny melon can be broken. The best advice is to always have an empty air tank in a sturdy rubberized tank lid, then wrap everything in a bubble compress and pack among the disguises or pants pants in your uniform. An electronic hopper is important equipment on which the operation of your pistol will largely depend. There aren’t many protective cases specifically for paintball loaders for sale, however some brands come with them. It is best to find a plastic container of the right size for safe storage and transportation of the forklift, especially if you have paid a lot for it. When transporting (and storing) it is best to get the batteries of the electronic hoppers to avoid leakage.
Transporting the gun to a separate case is the smartest way. For the most complete protection a hard case is the best choice and it will keep your marker the safest. If you don’t use a full-size rifle body, most soccer pistols are fairly compact and fit well in a large thing or bag. If you do not have access to a hard case, you can choose a soft one-sided case, however this should also be wrapped in a T-shirt and / or paintball pants for maximum protection. When packing, always separate the barrel from the gun, pack them in a lining and preferably together. Some barrels with markers have their own carrying case, and they are useful to use for safe travel. If you’re flying to the Woodsball stage, carrying a realistic combat handgun either through the airport or on a plane is not recommended. With how many shocks there are in the world and extra security at airports, a real automatic replica rifle is sure to raise eyebrows and most likely be confiscated.
