CaseAce Geargrip Pro Review

Introduction


If you are an avid LAN partygoer or you constantly move your case from location to location you know what a hassle it can be. When I have relocated my case it usually takes a few trips due to the fact that I take my case, monitor, mouse, cables and maybe other things. Being as lazy as I am, and I am sure many of you are quite lazy as well, if there is help I am always willing to give it a try. Not only does CaseAce have case-carrying products but they also have one which holds a monitor. At first glance the CaseAce Geargrip Pro looks to be made of very high quality material, designed well, packed well, and looking great overall.

The Geargrip Pro comes in a bag which is nothing fancy, however there is a lot to be said from simple packing. This packaging does the job well and also has some details on the top tab.

I opened up the package and pulled out the Geargrip – Pro and the shoulder strap, as I suspected from looking through the package it is made of very high quality material and the handle is very comfortable looking. The buckles are 2″ wide and are easy to pop apart, it’s a good idea that they used such big buckles and that they are easy to undo. The side pouch is attached to the straps by Velcro so that you can remove it or re-position it, which you might need to do because of cases being different sizes.

The Geargrip – Pro comes with instructions which tell you how to install and adjust your Geargrip – Pro, it also lets you know about the warranty and that you should backup all your info before moving your case, just to be sure. It also says if you move your case a lot that you can always leave it on, good suggestion for those on the go.

I will be testing the Geargrip – Pro with my Enermax CS-003-A106 case, a keyboard, mouse, CAT5E, a power cord, and my headphones with and microphone. You could put more in but this is all that I would really take to a LAN party.

The first thing to do is to pop open both of the buckles, then put your case on top of the Geargrip – Pro. Put the other side over the top of the case and make sure that the handle is in the center and middle of the top of the case.

After you have it lined up with the case so that the handle is on the top of the case connect both of the buckles back together and pull the slack so that the straps are tight around your case. Below is a shot of how it should look installed, the buckles are on the side of the case and the pouches are on the other side of the case with the bottom of them being almost at the bottom of the case.

I then put my keyboard, mouse, CAT5E, a power cord, and my headphones with and microphone into the front pouch. I had more than enough room to fit everything in and have plenty of more room to add other things. I could have probably fit a few hundred feet of CAT5 on one of the loops alone.

Now that you have your case and everything all in one place you are ready to go to that LAN party and impress everyone. If you want, you can also connect the shoulder strap which I mentioned before. The Strap has a nice plastic part on it to act as a cushion, to connect it you just snap on the 2 carabineer style clips to the hooks next to the handle.

Conclusion

The CaseAce Geargrip – Pro is a superb product, I am very impressed with it. The Geargrip – Pro is made of very high quality material and is put together with strong stitching and it has a great handgrip. The Geargrip Pro was able to hold everything that I would be taking to a LAN party and has much more room for many more things.

I like that you also get a shoulder strap so that if you don’t want to carry your case with your hand you can just throw it over your shoulder and get going.  The cost of this product is also a big point in my opinion, it only costs $35 which is a great price for the quality and use that you can get out of it.

I was able to find no negative aspects to this product which is why I am giving it a 10/10 and awarding it the OCmodshop Seal of Approval. I would like to thank CaseAce for sending this over for me to review, head on over and pick one up.
