    I have been undecided of what i wanted, case, rolling case, book bag! Said heck why not. Bit the bullet and tried the "cheap" ebay bookbag. Got it from a USA seller and got here in 2 days. Best part, it was only $50 shipped not $70+ like everywhere.

    Its kind of a "universal" bag but you can "customize" it for your needs. Everything fits perfect once setup. The phantom feels nice and snug! Room for more batteries and accessories with no problems. Im 5'11" and its a perfect size. Not too big and overwhelming like some of the book bags i have seen.

    My opinion, its worth it!

    If anyone wants it here is the sellers link let me know. Dont want it to seem like im promoting him, im just a regular person who tried something and was happy.


    On to the pics.

    Ordered one as well. Good find. I'll post when I receive it. Looks legit. Those suitcases are probably a little stronger but seem to bulky for around town.

    Good deal (there is a photo on the ebay link of a Phantom on the bag). However, I like the packs with foam in the inside so that items can move around.

    Got our answer, looks like supply and demand to blame here. So wrong. From $50 to $300 that's insane
