On Reddit, there was a post last week asking people to review a dice bag from Dragon Pouch, and in exchange they gave a coupon code to order one for just shipping cost. So, I volunteered and it arrived today. So, consider this my statement that I did receive this as a reviewer.
In terms of materials, this bag is well made. The stitching is all clean, and it does feel very durable. The outside has a velvet material, which I know is going to attract pet hair and dirt like no other, but it feels and looks nice. A dragon logo is embroidered on the front in black thread, so it doesn’t stand out too much, which I do appreciate, although the dragon does look really nice, so I don’t think I would mind if it stood out a bit more. The interior material is nylon, which is certainly durable, but gives the dreaded crinkling sound when opening and closing the bag. The drawstring feels solid, and the piece used to hold the bag closed seems to grip well, so I don’t have any concerns about it holding the top closed. The drawstring is a bit stiff to close, and does leave a small gap when pulled tight, but I don’t think that will be an issue, as I think a d4 would be the only possible one to slip out, and those are pretty much always at the bottom of the bag.
When I opened the box, I was disappointed at the size of the bag and was sure it wouldn’t hold as many dice as my other bag. I was pleasantly surprised, however. It holds all of the dice that the other bag does and closes just fine. My other bag still has more capacity, but this one certainly holds plenty.
One advantage of the material that this bag is made of is that it does stand up when open. This, combined with the large opening, make it easy to find whatever die is needed at that moment. It’s something that they promoted as a feature of the bag, so I felt it was worth mentioning here, and it does offer a convenience that isn’t necessarily something that first comes to mind when thinking about what to look for in a dice bag.
While this bag will likely not become my main bag, it does have its advantages and I will likely use it a fair bit.
This bag is available on Amazon, for $17.99 (MSRP $19.99).
