Fresh back from the ETC (well actually fresh back from the Edinburgh festival, but prior to that I was at the ETC) I’ve been handed the arduous task of reviewing the Kaiser1 bag from KR Multicase. First, here’s a picture:
Before we go any further I should explain that KR generously sponsored team Scotland at the ETC this year and provided each of us with a KR Multicase to take our armies to Prague in. What we didn’t know was that they also decided to send us each a bag for the case to go in, in my case, the Kaiser1.
So, I had to use the additional pockets to carry all my other stuff like my passport, documents, hipflask, e-reader etc. Fortunately it turns out this thing is tardis like in it’s construction. Here come the pockets:
The main pocket is of course the bit which holds the case. It can also hold the army list of Michael Willner of team Germany as demonstrated (I assume it can also hold other people’s army lists too in a pinch) it holds it exactly, it’s almost like it was designed around it. That means no banging around which is great.
Next up is the funky little side pocket, this is perfectly sized for a battlefront dice tin as well as your hangover medication for day two of a tournement as well as some other necessary odds and sods like objectives:
It also has a removable KR card so you can put your name on it (or in the case of Marc, use your business card like a prat).
It then has three pockets parallel with the main case pocket, one at the front, which is huge and comfortably held loads of books, as demonstrated here by an army book and essential reading material for when you win 6-1 in 30 minutes:
It also has two pockets at the back. One is the same as the front one, and I found it was good for holding all my travel documents as it was against my body so I felt less worried about someone stealing them (my body is pretty big so pickpockets night be afraid they looked like they were trying to cop a feel):
And then the final pocket handily held my sweeties, which were very useful when you discover your team captain hasn’t ordered lunch and you are gaming in the middle of a turnip field with no means of cooking said turnips:
So all in all, I really liked this bag and it is going to take over as my main tournement bag, it can hold pretty much everything I would want and is durable enough that I don’t have to worry it’s going to fall apart on me or the strap will break if I have to walk across town because Ben has got the postcode wrong when he books a B&B
