Product Review: Dice Bag from Greyed Out

Greyed Out

Stands up empty or with dice!

Today, I received the dice bag I recently ordered from Greyed Out and I am super excited to get it. My previous velour bag is old and beginning to show its age to the world; much to my chagrin. The measure of veteran gamer (regardless of genre) is the ability to smartly carry their dice in a stylish bag without losing functionality and usefulness. This bag has both and comes in a cool Cthulhu themed pattern! Ok, enough of my babbling; let’s get on with the review.

BAG DETAILS & FEATURES:
Height – 5.25″
Width – 4″ square base
9 internal pockets (8 small pockets, 1 large center pocket)
2 Braided drawstrings
2 Cord locks, one on each drawstring*
Cthulhu patterned fabric
Cost w/ cord locks – $29.50+ shipping

“The Dice Bag of Nine Pockets is what every adventurer needs – a pouch with plenty of space to store dice, tokens, coins, chalk, and everything else that might come in handy on a great adventure. This dice bag features 8 pockets sewn around the inside lining, and one larger central pocket. The smaller pockets measure 2″ wide by about 4″ deep, and will hold 7-8 dice each, depending on die size. The bag is sewn so that when closed, nothing will escape the individual pockets.” – Greyed Out website

THE GOOD:
– The bag has ample room for all my dice
– The bag stays upright when opened.
– Each of the 8 small pockets is sized to hold a 7-piece dice set
– The braided drawstring looks very durable
– The cord locks are a great add-on feature
– When closed (w/o cord locks) the bag stays closed when turned upside down!
– Overall size is perfect the RPGer

THE BAD:
– The small pockets are little too small, dice sets are a little hard to get out when the bag is really full.
– Cord locks might be overkill (not necessarily a bad thing)

FINAL THOUGHTS:
This is a great bag so far. The craftsmanship is excellent and I have high expectations that this bag will stand the test of time.  Bags come in several styles with the majority of them being single (large) pocket bags followed by the 9 pocket style. There are a few other unique styles that might appeal to a smaller audience. The variety of fabrics and screen printing options available are mind melting (90+ options available). Cord locks are a cool feature and cheap to upgrade to, but may not be needed. Time will tell once the bag gets broken in if the upgrade was worth it or not. If I could change one thing, I would make the small pockets a little wider, even is that meant only seven instead of eight.

If you’re looking for a high-quality hand made artisan bag, it’s worth your time to check out Greyed Out’s bags! I think you will be happy that you did.
