Gear Bags Reviews
I’ve been personally using Odyssey flight cases for my DJ equipment for over twenty years now! Odyssey always seems to bring out new cases and bags to protect DJ equipment almost as soon as the piece is released to the public. The newly announced Pioneer XDJ-RX all-in-one DJ Rekordbox system was recently released to the masses and Odyssey has already produced new flight cases and bags to accommodate.
The same team that is responsible for my personal favorite DJ Jetpack Backpack has now introduced a line of premium headphone bags to protect and carry premium DJ headphones. Orbit Concepts has released the Deloop lineup of headphone bags. The Deloop bags come in four different models, but the OC team has sent us the Deloop Sport bag to put it through the paces. Check out our full video review to see how they hold up.
Magma has recently released a group of new DJ gear bags that provide ample protection, good comfort, and enough room to hold a primary device, a laptop, and a number of extra goodies to take along for the trip.

A few months ago, we gave you a full video review of the first iteration of the Jetpack Backpack which was more like a prototype of what we now call the new Jetpack II Backpack by Orbit Concepts. This bag is every bit as good as the first using the same design principles and dimensions. The Jetpack II has been upgraded with stronger ballistic nylon, fresh colors, waterproofing around the zippers, a metal namebadge, velcro for the business cards and a few other improvements. The Jetpack backpack can hold a 10” mixer, all of your cables, microphones, some vinyl, CD’s, USB interface, a laptop, controller, and much more all at the same time!
