    So I've been going back and forth and back and forth on this for a while as to whether to get one of these and if I did would I go for the Tactical or the Tactical Pro.

    I noticed on the store that they were offering free shipping to the UK so that kind of sealed the deal on whether or not I would order one, also so a code on the Razer store for a free accessory pouch which was a sweet bonus. Now there was just the problem of which one to order!

    Budget was edging me towards the smaller Tactical Backpack but if push came to shove I'd find the extra money for the Pro version so I got knocked that consideration off the list.

    Youtube video reviews for the Pro version are there aplenty but there isn't a single one I can find for the smaller Tactical version which is when I remembered about this handy site. My main real concern was whether or not the smaller Tactical bag had the 2 main compartments the same as the pro and the Razer product page didn't do a great job of making that clear.

    Thankfully this handy site had a couple of posts from a user who had both versions saying that they were the same and later I found a part of the Razer store also backing that up. The only other thing was the lack of MOLLE front pouches which I figured I could maybe just buy 3rd party pouches and add them on later (I'm assuming the smaller version allows for this, if not I won't be heartbroken) or just get a bunch of velcro patches to add on as it just being bare would be boring.

    So with me deciding that the smaller version would suit my practical needs that is what I have decided to go for. When it arrives I'll definitely come back and post my own impressions and if I can do so well enough using my phone I'll maybe do a little video review and stick it up on YouTube as it really bugs me that there aren't any up there at all!

    EDIT: Here's a video I made, first time ever doing something like this and it was one handed with my phone so please excuse the quality. Hopefully it helps inform others who are interested and if there's anything I missed and you'd like to see then please let me know and I'll do my best.

    Heeey! Welcome to the crew. :cool_:

    Damn! Out of 20+ YouTube videos, not even a single video of the Razer Tactical Backpack (Standard).

    Very disappointing... :eek_:

    First of all thank you for the welcome :smile_:

    And yeah how frustrating is it that there isn't a single video?!?!?!?

    I'll even do a one handed version recording with my phone and post it up there just so that there's an option for it, I would certainly have liked even something like that to be available for some sort of reference lol.

    There are no reviews for two bags: The Tournament edition and the Tactical one which you have just ordered. It would do us really great here if you could order :) I am also curious as to how much of a difference it is

    My regular Tactical Backpack arrived about 5 minutes ago. I need to get ready for work soon but I'll have a go at doing a video to show it off as soon as I get a chance, most likely tomorrow morning some time.

    Thanks for the video! You should have done it in a landscape view though haha! You pretty much covered everything. I really like the size, but due to some currency issues in my region's store (Malaysia), the backpack is absurdly priced :slightly_sad:

    And for your information, the little thing in the centre compartment is for you to hang your headphones :D

    Yes the bright idea of landscape came to me as I was uploading lol. A lesson for next time!

    Actually, you can hang more than just headphones there. I own the Tactical Pro, and even though I've never used that hook, I know that it'll be fine with more than just headphones.

    Heeey - congratulations on being the first! :cool_:

    Thank you once again. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:

    No reviews for the Razer Tactical Pro Backpack?

    Have you checked?

    I said there were no reviews for the "Tactical one", meaning the Tactical backpack, not the Tactical Pro.

    A word or two brings a whole new meaning.

    So what's the ''tournament edition'' one?

    This one?

    Yeah the way I read it is that there were none for the regular Tactical Bag that I ordered or the Tournament Backpack that you have pictured.

    Yep - I finally figured that one out eventually.

    Very confusing at first! :confused_:

    As long as it makes sense in the end I guess lol.

    Oh and as an update, I didn't unhook my Blackwidow Ultimate to try and put it in the bag but I did stand it up next to the bag, I don't think it would fit in there, at best it might let you get the bag zipped up most of the way and then just be covered up by that cover on the bag coming over the top of it and attach the clasps.

    Also I think I'm going to return this one and get the Tactical Pro and there's a couple of reasons for this. Mainly, the places I can use here to find and buy Molle pouches for the bag, I can find pouches whose dimensions are ok in terms of height but then either much to narrow in width and depth or much too wide in that I wouldn't be able to fit 2 of them on the bag. And even then with the cost of the ones I found even as a compromise in between there the cost would be very similar overall to the Tactical Pro and aren't really a size I'd be happy compromising with anyway so I figure if it's going to cost that much I may as well get the Tactical Pro with front pouches that were designed for it and get more room overall in the bag anyway.

    My mistake here was not researching the availability of sizes and cost of 3rd paty Molle pouches before ordering my bag. So if anyone that reads this who is considering this version make sure to look into that before pulling the trigger. The bag itself I think is great and anyone that maybe doesn't card about front pouches on the bag it would be perfect for you. If I could find Molle pouches of the size I'd be happy with on this bag I'd definitely be keeping it.

    Ah, that's unfortunate to hear!

    You played a pretty big gamble.

    Best of luck! ;)

    Yeah it didn't pay off but these things happen sometimes. Still definitely a great bag though, so well made and perfect for anyone who doesn't care so much about the modular pouches. Waiting on my RMA ticket to confirm I can return it then I'll be getting the order in for the Tactical Pro, hopefully it comes before the promo code for a free pair of Kraken Pro Neon disappears from the store on Monday!

    The other handy thing about this experience is having found this community, so helpful and friendly :)
