I must have gone through a dozen ways to try to transport cables and other miscellaneous items to different parts of an event, be it an out of the way ceremony site or to the primary reception location. Eventually I stumbled upon this back from CablePhyle and saw that the reviews were pretty descent.
Now the CablePhyle bag is not an inexpensive bag, at around $100 some people may balk at the price, but it appeared to do something that was desperately seeking out which was dividing out all my cables in a nice and organized method. I decided to get a pair of bags, one for ceremony and the other for receptions and take them for a test spin.
I’ve had these two cases about a year now, and as you can see by this exploded picture of my ceremony bag you can carry quite a bit in the bag. But this leads into the first negative of the bag:
- Given it’s size it promotes this idea to carry a lot in it, and when you do it’s starts to get a bit on the heavy side, for me coming in just a hair under 30 lbs. Now that is not some massively weighty item, but it’s not the lightest thing in the world.
- The second negative is the construction of the zipper. While none of the teeth break. it snags occasionally and I just wish it had a more fluid action, especially for the price.
- Lastly the straps on the bag tend to twist and bunch up, making it a little unruly at times. Even the handle area tends to bunch making it a little uncomfortable to carry. It certainly would be nice if this bag has some wheels on it.
All that being said, even with the negatives, I still recommend this bag if you are looking to be highly organized. Even through it’s faults, and the lack of many options in the market, this does do the job pretty well.
