Wallye Tactik Duffle (www.wallye.com)

I created this duffle to make moving, traveling and flying with SFF systems less miserable. The idea and product design is based on inputs within the original "NCASE M1 Softshell Carry Bag for community" thread.

2018-06-24 Update:

DAN Cases A4 packed inside the Duffle
* The folded padding on the top left corner is meant to stop lateral movement inside the bag.

A video for those that had questions about how to install the Modular Padding Kit:

Also confirmed that a 21.5" monitor with thin bezel should fit:


2018-06-12 Update:

One bag for the entire PC and using my laptop as a monitor.

Best of both worlds, Mac and PC, Battery Life and Performance.

2018-02-22 Update:

For those that prefer the V1 look, we made the removable Luggage Strap Kit to bridge the gap.

↑ Dan Case A4-SFX, Laptop + Razer Core eGPU, SilverStone SG13 (A4 and Razer Core are similar in size) also fits. I have also used this bag for my drone and every day carry.

↑ The front pocket can fit a TKL mechanical keyboard or a gadget tray. Full size keyboard can be strapped to the top of the bag.


I believe there is an optimal combination with the duffle and carry-on. The duffle qualifies as a personal item based on it's dimensions, so you can technically bring both the duffle and a carry-on suitcase onto an airplane.

For example:

Combination M1 / A4 / Ghost / laptop + eGPU / other SFF systems smaller than 370x260x170mm :
- Personal Item (Tactick Duffle): M1, TKL Mechanical KB, Mouse, Cables, Battery banks
- Wheeled Carry-on Suitcase (Tactik Frequent Flyer 45L, still prototype stage): 24" monitors, HTC VIVE, Clothing + Shoes (like Vans, something low profile)

Combination PCX / Sentry / Node 202 / other console PCs :
- Personal Item (Tactick Duffle): Clothing+ Shoes, Battery banks
- Wheeled Carry-on Suitcase (Tactik Frequent Flyer 45L, still prototype stage): 24" monitors, HTC VIVE, TKL Mechanical KB, Mouse, Cables

Basically, M1 in the duffle and the monitor in a suitcase. Alternatively, PCX and monitor into the suitcase, the duffle for cloth.

I'm hoping see more about the 24" carry-on. What's the planned thickness limit for the PC?

I've already ordered one, looking forward to its arrival!

I think I saw a comment about it in the other thread, but the k70 keyboard won't fit would it?

The prototype will arrive this Friday, will post some pictures with my 24" monitor (Asus VX24H, 2560x1440) inside.

Will it carry SFF cases like the newer Shuttle XPCs? How about the Silverstone and Coolermaster SFF cases?

Shuttle used to sell a bag similar to this for their old XPC range - the new ones are bigger - and it had pockets at each end into which I put my trackball at one end and cables and USB sticks at the other, a pouch along the front which I used for DVDs and longer screwdrivers and a light headset, and an internal pouch along the top into which fitted a small keyboard.

Also, flights here in Europe typically allow one bag only, not one bag / personal item and a carry-on.

Looks great! Perhaps for the next batch there would be a card holder for identification that would hold a standard business card, or other types of branding instead of having to tie a tag to it?

It shows the dimensions: SFF systems smaller than 370 x 260 x 170mm

While the full size keyboard doesn't fit into the pockets. It can be tie down to the top of the duffle using the elastics.

The divider is not fixed in place. So by itself, no. You can, however, put a TKL keyboard / headphones / Clothing to fill the gap.

Using the Razer Core (since the size is very close to A4), to give you a better idea:

* The divider shown between the TKL Mechanical Keyboard and Razer Core is an earlier prototype. Production Unit will be taller and flush at the top with padding.

This is the Tactik Frequent Flyer carry-on bag protoype. You can see it below with the Asus VX24AH (2560x1440, IPS, 23.8"), M1 and monitor, M1 and monitor zipped up. Keep in mind, in order to fit a 24" monitor, there is minimum padding (~5mm), b/c there is no more space. This is also the reason why I made the duffle, some people like more padding.


* I'm sure you noticed that the monitor stand is sticking out. For those using a monitor with VESA, it's less of an issue. For the Asus monitors, you CAN remove the stand, just follow this video guide. I'm going to remove the stand on my VX24AH and attempt to put a VESA bracket into the monitor, will make a video assuming I don't destroy the monitor and fail miserably.



Obviously, the bag will also hold 24" monitor and A4 / Ghost / SG13 / Razer Core / eGPU, console size desktops like PCX / Sentry / Node 202 will also fit. The following images should help.


* The Razer Core eGPU is an approximate size for A4 / Ghost. The 15" MacBook Pro (w. Touch Bar) is an approximate size for PCX / Sentry / Node 202.

I will be flying to Computex with some of the forum members. Based on the trip and feedback from these forum members, I will need to make more changes, so no ETA until the product development is done.

Hmm i guess ill just eait till this one finalize before purchasing the duffle bag


I will try to get the bag done as soon as I can, but the appearance is very boring right now, needs some serious work to match the duffle.

Any idea if an older/less-slim 24" 1080p monitor like the VG248QE would still fit? It is roughly 30mm wider and 15mm taller. The minimal padding leads me to believe there's not enough space but I guess there's always the Dell S2417DG.

For comparison:
VG248QE: 569.4 x 340.4 x 57.3 mm
VX24AH: 540.5 x 326.3 x 40.2 mm
Dell S2417DG: 540.4 x 322.7 x 55.8 mm

I assume you're going to take the same exact bag and monitor with you on the Computex trip? If that's indeed the case, I definitely want to hear from you how the combo ends up faring, and especially how careful you need to be to not break the monitor.

This is my concern. The setup fits nicely, but whenever I traveled with my monitor, I made sure there was nothing hard in the bag and that it was surrounded by a ton of cushioning.

Even if your bag is with you the entire time, there's no guarantee it won't take a hard knock, or that someone won't accidentally put their foot into it, and I would seriously worry about the panel staying intact in this bag.

VG248QE won't fit, the VX24AH and S2417DG should.

Some of the forum guys going to Computex are bringing Dell U2415H and U2417H, I will put the monitors + stand into the bag and take some pictures for reference.

Yes, I will be taking this monitor to Computex for the purpose fo seeing what happens with minimum padding. I will let you know how things go or break.

I know what you mean.

The current plan is that the monitor should be facing your back, so as long as the backpack is on your back, knocking into other things is less scary.

I'm stopping by a memory foam company after Computex, I want to drop a bowling ball onto the monitor with the multilayer foam protecting the monitor, let's see :D

Mmmm. I suppose that would help a little - though I'll be interested to see how comfortable it is with a flat panel on your back. I know textbooks never felt good. (And if strapping it too tight can cause problems.)

That being said, it's a great concept and I want to see it take off!

I have solution, I will show it *after I find out if it's patentable.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I love the work you are doing. I'm looking forward to being able to fit my Ncase M1 and a monitor in a carry-on soon.

I get the satisfaction of saying you can't do this with larger cases, so that's a win for SFF.

It's 27". The carrier seen in the pic is meant for 24" monitors.

That's huuuge. Did you try flying with it?

I have a 400KM commute once every 3-4 weeks, so that set up is for ground transport.

I have the 24" Asus VX24AH 2560x1440 that's fits into my prototype carry-on for flying.

I fly mostly international. I can pretty much stuff all my clothing into one suitcase, SFF desktop + laptop into my duffle, so I still have one more suitcase for a large monitor.

I was looking to upgrade to the Dell UP3017Q, at 30" diagonal with less bezel, it can fit that into a check-in suitcase with padding inside.

You were? That's crazy. What ended up stopping you?

OLED is a new technology, dell was going to scrap the product, there are some unknown surrounding this monitor. So I'm waiting for more reviews.
