Comfortable Carrying

The straps and bag are reinforced not only for a long-lasting bag that will survive gig after gig, but also to make sure that even a heavy load is easy on your back. The bag also has a stand-up design to keep it from falling over when resting on the ground.

Room For Everything

The Controllerist bag is surprisingly large. We've even fit the Kontrol Z2 mixer in ours in a pinch. The front + main pockets offer plenty of room for sound cards, controllers, and accessories. The dedicated controller sleeve holds a S2 / Push sized unit.

Laptop Love

Safely store your laptop in its own separate side-access zipper pocket. The pocket it neoprene lined and makes it much easier to remove just your laptop at airport security or at a gig.

"Overview - A solid gig bag but was surprised in a few aspects, namely: lack of space for my kit, no adjustable straps, weak feeling carry handle. My kit is the following - Kontrol S2, Decksaver, 15in laptop, headphones, Hercules laptop stand, and of course the required cables. In order to be able to close the bag and have it snap I have to not store my stand or headphones in the bag; the headphones can fit if I just let the bag be loosely closed via velcro on the flap, the stand can't go in or the above isn't possible. Without the Desksaver I'd be worried about pressure on the pots and stems of the knobs, especially depending on how you load the bag. It will allow for my kit to fit however, but the peace of mind is more worthwhile. The carry handle also feels small when carrying a full load, and the bags lack of adjustment for the straps means it can sit pretty far down your back. I like the internal layout of the bag, and for the price it's a good buy. If you've got a similar sized setup and a bit more cash the Magma Digi Control XL will hold all the above, as well as allow for adjustable straps, if you can find it. "

"I've been rocking this bag since April of 2016, and it has NEVER let me down. Super comfy, truly waterproof, versatile in space, and aesthetically a joy to lug around. I can't recommend it enough."

"I recently purchased this bag for my first night club show mainly for ease of use. That way I could carry all my gear in on swoop instead of making multiple trips to the parking lot down the street. The bag is very waterproof and extremely comfortable to carry. Comfortably holds my Laptop, Traktor S2, Traktor F1, mix, conn Cote case and odds and ends. Can carry a bigger controller around the size of a Traktor S4 with a little more diligence. His bag does exactly what it’s intended to do and functions exceptionally. "

"I can confirm that it fits an S5, but not in the controller pocket - that becomes where I store everything else, and the S5 packs in front of it. Bag is huge and high quality. It has plenty of room, and is comfortable, too"

"Just used this bag for the first time tonight, and while it's definitely well made, as a mobile (mainly wedding) DJ, I feel that the pocket out front is a little small for my needs (spare batteries, extra cables, mobile WIFI hub, external SSD and a few other odds and ends) and that the main pocket, while very spacious is a little tight for a set of D2's in the same pouch (yeah, i do weddings properly) and a backup tablet in the other Main pouch. I also need to keep my headphones on top of the D2's (XD2-53) because they can't go in the front pocket. I think it is very well designed, but an extra inch for the main pocket would help the Chroma caps stay fresh and not wear out, as well as a bit more room in the front pocket. My caps are brand new, but enough of the tight in and out, and i think they could start to wear. Don't get me wrong, I love the bag, and think it's great, i just bring too much gear with me for what it was designed to do. Very solid build, the zipper for the laptop compartment will keep my Mac dry as it looks like the same type Burton uses for their products, the velcro for the main flap will keep the top tight even if you somehow manage to undo the clip, or have something very oddly shaped in there. Overall, i give it a 3.5, mainly because it falls short of my needs in a gig bag, but I've taken into account that I'm using it out of it's comfort zone, so i've rounded up to a 4 ;)"
