Bolter and Chainsword Bag

Hello Shawn -

I'm Matthew Hunt [of Bolter and Chainsword], I don't know if you remember me from back in 2006. I saw your review of our army carry case on youtube and noticed you were looking for information about the bags. As we are preparing for our 2009 order I thought I would pass on the particulars to you.

We have 2 types, the Mk.I and the Mk. II they do not include foam. They are however designed to carry Sabol foam trays. That said, we stand by the fact that our bags are a level of quality over and above any Sabol case, as I'm sure you noticed during your review.

MK I (13.5"W x 8"D x 20"H) $105/unit
MK II (13.5" x 8"D x 15"H) $95/unit

How does that compare to Sabol cases in size? Well here ya go. The original Sabol Army case (equivalent of our Mk. II is):

Height: 14 inches
Width: 14 inches
Thickness: 9 inches
Depth: 13 inches
So as you can see ours holds about an inch more foam than theirs but is otherwise similar dimensions.

The Sabol Battalion case (equivalent of our Mk. 1) has the following dimensions:

Height: 24 inches
Width: 14 inches
Thickness: 9 inches
Depth: 8 inches
Holds 20 inches of our figure foam trays.
Our Mk.1 isn't as tall because all the non-foam storage is on the sides rather than the bottom of the case, but in terms of foam it holds the same amount.

Yes the B&C bag is expensive but worth the cost in the long term. The bags are constructed of high quality cordura by hand. By that I mean, an indivdual at a sewing machine and not some rapid production line stuff. Because they are made from cordura they are high resitant to the wear and tear a gamer would subject them to and even include a limited life time warranty.

In addition to the feature of a large book pocket, the side "blister pack" pocket and the pen/tapemeasure holder the bag has a removable/adjustable shoulder strap, hand grips that can be velcroed together for easy carrying and interior foam padding sewn into the walls of the bag.

The issue gets to be if you want a logo on it or not. You could see the price go up substantially then depending on if you want embroidery or screen printing.

Last year (2008) the B&C Mk. II bag went for $120 with shipping and logo included. This year due to an increase in material costs we are looking at about $135-140 for the bag, still waiting on an estimate from the folks who assemble our bags. They are known as Initial Attack and they make gear/webbing for the US Military and Forest Service.

If you have any interest in joining in on this years order please let me know and I can give you some more specifics in the event you want a logo on the bag(s).

Thanks for your time.
