Really like the bag, it just seems a little big for what I need. I wish there was a size between the BearIII & Kodiak.
Hi Shannon, thanks for your review. I hear ya'. We're working on something in between. Don't hold your breath for it though. It'll be a little while before hitting final production.
The waterproof zipper is peeling off all over.
The inside dividers are weak and got all smashed/bend.
I’m not very happy or impress with this bag
Thank you for your valuable feedback. I too am disappointed (perhaps even moreso), as well as concerned and surprised that your bag had these issues right out of the gate. I know you were very eager to use it at a recent event. In the next few days I'll email you to discuss and remedy the situation. I take great pride in having the back of everyone who's purchased a Victory Bag. Rest assured I have yours too.
I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but I bought it because I recently crewed someone during a self supported100 mile road race. It seemed very well built and made my job crewing much easier because his stuff was all in labeled pockets and nicely separated. After arriving home I ordered 2. One for myself, and one for my wife. Looking forward to trying them out!
Purchased 3 different crew bags from other companies and this was the big winner. The versatility of the dividers and the multiple see through and magnetized pockets keep my crew person organized and efficient when I checked in each 20 mi loop of the 100. Easy to carry and move backpack straps out of the way to access contents. This one cost me more but is worth every single dollar.
Have had a few velcro bits pull off in the visible panel on the lid ( where you might put supplements etc). I was also a bit disappointed with the quality of webbing used on the shoulder straps and carry loop. I am overall happy with the bag but will not buy again with the current webbing used.
<br><br>Thank you for your detailed feedback. While glowing reviews always make us smile, critical ones are the most valuable. If I were to say every detail on the bags, I've designed and put together, were spot on perfect I'd be stretching myself a bit.
I agree with you about the webbing. It's a note I've had regarding future adjustments. As always it's an evolving process and comments like yours help guide these designs to the next level. </p>
<p></p><p>On the note regarding the Velcro, I'll email you for specifics. I've never seen that happen before. I know you recently received your bag. If it's a warranty issue, I'd like to take care of it.
