Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I posted here, but as you all know, things have been a little busy.
With the lawsuit nearing a close (yes this means there are a couple of things to iron out), I figured it would be a good time to let you all know about the new line of bags coming out from Outrider Hobbies. I know, I know, why another line of bags. Everyone makes bags. Who cares about one more line of bags? Well, me for one, but I think I'm a bit biased.
Now, I'm not going to say these are the greatest bags ever. Although they are pretty good.
I'm not going to say these bags are going to revolutionize the industry. But I am shocked that something like it hasn't been done before.
So without further delay, I present the first of Outrider Hobbies Force Operations bags, The Ranger.
The Ranger uses standard Outrider Hobbies Foam Corps trays measuring 7.5x13". It holds two stacks of foam about 9" tall. Access to the foam is provided by a top and side opening allowing you to remove the trays without having to squeeze the trays to get them in or out.
There are four pockets around the bag. Two on either end capable of holding hardcover A4 sized books, and two on the side that doesn't zip down. The pockets use a velcro closure, and the pocket flap has been finished so you don't see the cut fabric and sewing when the pocket is opened.
The bag is supported by a rigid plastic sheet in the bottom of the bag, another in the top, and a foam laminated fabric on the inside of the sides and top. The foam helps to support the bag, and also provide an additional layer of foam padding for your models.
Finally, no longer do you have to be content with whatever SINGLE
color the manufacturer decides to provide, you get your choice. (From a selection of course, but at least it's more than one)
Maybe a red one?
Or maybe you're a former Marine/child of a Marine/current Marine/friend of a Marine/etc.?
And best of all, these bags were designed and MADE
in the USA.
Now, these bags are not available yet for purchase from our website. I have contacted a web developer to rework the site, and the bags will be available there as soon as it is complete.
Q: How much do the bags cost?
A: US Army Digital Camo, Charcoal Gray - $65, Custom non-camouflage color - $75, Custom camouflage - Not yet finalized. Cost will be higher due to material costs. I am working with the manufacturer.
Q: What colors are available?
A: Red (obviously), Gray, Charcoal Gray, Dark Green, Olive Green, Blue, Navy, Black
Q: What Camouflage patterns?
A: US Army Digital, USMC Digital, USAF Tiger Stripe, US Woodland, and maybe more.
Q: Why are the other colors more expensive?
A: Because they are ordered in smaller lots. Also, the other camouflage is usually a different material and has higher costs as well.
Q: Why camouflage?
A: WHY NOT? We play WARGAMES
, what's more appropriate to a wargame than camouflage?
Q: Can they be purchased from a local retailer?
A: Of course! I am working slowly, but I am trying to work with retailers as much as I can. Locally, almost all of the Arizona stores are carrying them at the moment, and you can also find them at Showcase Comics in Pennsylvania, and Little Wars of Houston.
