That OFNA, protek, racerz edge, trinity etc are all the same. The wingtote is slightly different but higher quality. If you like one of the first ones I listed, look at the HPI one. It's the same, except the cheapest of them all by a decent margin. It all depends what branding you want to rock otherwise

+1. Almost all the hauler bags with the handle on the narrow side are the same. HPI/Hot Bodies bag is the same and $130 minus coupon shipped through Tower. 90% of the time out of stock though.

All these bags have sub-par zippers. Drawers seem fine. Note you can over load one. I've broken my original Team Magic bag down pretty bad from too much weight. It's been in use years though.

I prefer these type of bags though over the hockey bag type because you can set the hauler next to you in the pits without blocking to much of the isle but still being able to use the drawers, tool caddy, etc. Also prefer it over the Stanley Fat Max tool hauler as that thing takes up way to much room, depth wise, when opened.

The cost for these hauler bags is a god damned joke!!!

The drawers are nothing more than cheap corrugated plastic bins. The same ones the post office pays about $4 per. The exterior of the bags is ok and the overall housings of SOME of them are well made but nothing that warrants such ridiculous prices.

I got myself a rolling plastic storage chest from Walmart that cost me all of $20 and I fit four 1/10 cars, 3 radios, 2 tool boxes and my charger and all fits comfortably cozy.

save $180 and buy this.

I've owned 2 wingtotes, 1 trinity (same a protek), and 1 JC medium bag, every single one of them has fallen apart. That's over $600 in hauler bags! I'll no longer own a RC branded bag, ever. They are way over priced with low quality materials.

I've recently switch to this if it breaks I'm only out $20.

I'm really liking the AKA bag but as others said, the OGIO 9800 is more heavy duty.

That's precisely the sterilite foot locker I have. Does the job better than any hauler bag and I can place all 3 of my my wheel bins on top perfectly.

BEST $20 I've ever spent!

This looks good to me. How durable is it? I have been looking around for something to roll my gear into the track. tired of making 3-4 trips to the packing lot.

anyone use these? Most of the wheels toolboxes seem very cheaply make and most reviews have the wheels falling off
