Default BEST R/C HAULER BAG

Hi,

i have been looking at the Pro-Line hauler bag and I wanted to get your input on the hauler bags currently out there worth their cost. It has to have at least 2 wheels and a handle to pull it with. The Pro-Line costs about $215, but it looks real solid.[img]blob:https://www.rctech.net/cbabdc2b-6685-4f11-9cf2-cc542a62b5b9[/img]

Check out the wingtote buggy hauler. Got my brother and myself one for christmas and were pretty happy with them. Tons of room and the bungee strap on top is great as well.

I have both the Pro-line bag and the Wingtote. I prefer the Wingtote and feel it is slightly better constructed.

Dan, those were the 2 I was comparing. Does the Wingtote also have a place to store as well as organize your tools with holders as the ProLine has?
Thanks, Mike

I use the wingtote and it does have two rows of elastic loops to hold tools in the upper compartment. I use this bag right now(5 yrs) and before that used a trinity T8(4 yrs) hauler. Both bags got used multiple days a week and were lifted in and out of SUVs each use. The trinity was retired after all 4 of the main zippers failed, not a knock as I said 4 yrs of use. The wingtote currently has one failed zipper on the top flap but I can use the other to close the hauler which is how I also used the trinity as the zippers failed. My biggest gripe was that the trinity like the pro line bag was narrow and wanted to tip over in my suv. The wingtote is wider and pulls from the wide side so it is more stable while being pulled and doesn't want to tip during transit as easily. All in all both were good bags and hold everything I need.

just picked up a 24g Craftsman rolling tool box for a song from Lowes. Should be big enough to haul 3 cars and all the essentials to the track. I almost picked up one made by Kobalt for the same price but 2x the size. When I saw it in person I realized it was way too big.
