Do you have the brand new Scubapro Porter Bag model or only this one (thats the previous one)? Id like a comparison between them (material, size, weight, pouches, handles, straps and so on). Thanks a lot
Looking for a lightweight travel bag. Stopped by a local dive shop and they have what I think is this bag but the weight they claim and what is in the Scuba Pro catalogue they showed me is almost 3 lbs lighter than what you site says. Dimensions and price are the same.. Did SP change the material on this bag?
Do the backpack straps hide or are otherwise contained when not in use? When checked baggage goes through the system it is nice to have as little as possible hanging off the bag.
How padded is it? what is the protection for your scuba gear in the bag? i do a lot of traveling and i dont want my gear to break.
Can you please compare this bag to this other one from the link below ? I mean the differences, advantages/disadvantages between them? http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-26/018487/Mares-Cruise-Roller-Backpack-Dive-Bag.html
Hi, Im after a very large roller with backpack straps but have been debating the value (and weight) of telescoping handles. My previous experience (with a snowboard bag) was that the bag was extremely heavy on my hand and was tiring to move it around. Is that just my bad packing, the nature of that bag or what it means to not have a telescoping handle? This bag looks good, is big enough to take my super heavy and bulky gear, but Im going around the world for 3 months and want something that Im not sick of in the first airport.
The telescoping handle is one of those personal preference choices. On one hand, adding the materials in the handle definitely adds weight which can be problematic when doing a great deal of air travel. On the other hand, they care tremendously more convenient and comfortable to pull around whether it be through an airport or on the docks.
Hi, I am really interested in this bag or the Akona Roller Backpack bag as they are both high volume. The trouble with the Akona is its weight of over 8kg. and this bag doesn not have the telescopic handle. Can you suggest a bag along the lines of this Scubapro bag that has a great volume like this but has a telescopic handle but doesnt weigh more than about 5 kg?
Hello check out the stahlsac''s http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-26/230317/Stahlsac-7-lbs-Curacao-Clipper-Travel-Roller-Duffel-Bag-for-2015.html
After a day of transporting dive gear, this big bag folds in on itself and stays out of the way until your next dive adventure. It's convenient to have a big dive bag to cart all your scuba equipment down to the beach or dive boat. The problem comes when the gear hauling is done and you have to find a place to stow this big bag. In our modern world where extra space is at a premium, this is not always easy. Thankfully, you won't have this problem with the Porter Bag. This big carrier offers lots of volume to handle your gear. It also comes with reinforced 'off-road' skate-style roller wheels, plus a backpack system, so you'll always be able to easily roll or carry the bag wherever you want it to go. But what's really cool is that, after a day of gear hauling, the Porter Bag is designed to fold completely in on itself, creating a much more compact package that stows surprisingly easy. The Porter Bag features a cavernous main compartment plus four smaller pockets -- two on the front of the bag and two inside. The main compartment comes with a corrosion-resistant U-shaped zipper for easy access and packing, and a reinforced bottom adds shape and rigidity. The top handle is your grab point when rolling the bag, and side handles make muscling the bag into car trunks or onto boat decks less of a hassle. Easy to lift, carry and roll, and offering lots of packing volume, the PORTER BAG is a solid choice for gear transport, plus it won't take up much space in the closet as it awaits your next dive adventure.
