It turns out the kit is identical except for an additional divider coming with the A4 Version. So if you buy the DAN kit, it will also fit the NCase, as there are no other differences.Is there a way to buy one bag with a danA4 kit+gadget tray and an Ncase kit+gadget tray?
Correct!It turns out the kit is identical except for an additional divider coming with the A4 Version. So if you buy the DAN kit you it will also fit the NCase, as there are no other differences.
No ETA on suitcase - good handle + wheels is proving to be stupid expensive (USD 300+). Without the rolling wheel, it is simply too heavy to carry around (I know b/c I have done it from US to Taiwan for Computex).Any eta on the suitcase Wahaha360? If it's near I'll hold off on the bag for a little while, then just get both to minimize shipping costs to NZ.
It's pretty self explanatory:I'm really interested in this but what does the removable gadget tray do exactly? Can you tell me or show us in pics an example?
On a side note, I made it removable to make life easier for security checks at airports. With the gadget tray, it's faster to remove, put into airport scanners and re-pack.It's pretty self explanatory:
I'm trying to figure out how to confirm addresses with this new website. So should get an email within 24 hours on that.Any word when these will be shipping? I ordered mine May 5th. (Order #1064)
After current pre-orders are shipped, I will vanish along with this bagThe website mentions two order windows and the estimated ship dates for each, but no mention of beyond that. I assume that with a website dedicated to it, it won't simply vanish after the second shipment. Unfortunately I won't have the money for one until around July 4th, so I just want to know what's the plan after the second shipment?
Sorry to hear that.In germany the package got hold up by customs who challenged the worth of the package the shipping company gave for it. Had to provide my receipts and should see the package in I guess a few days together with the bill for import taxes
received my bag today. Had to pay 40€ in taxes; not suprising. As I also own the old community NCASE Deluxe Bag some short comparisons: The materials of the deluxe bag have a bit of a higher quality feel to it with its soft interior linings and other details, but the deluxe bag was more expensive. I cant say the Wallye feels cheap, but in direct comparison the deluxe bag is more premium.Sorry to hear that.
You are the first one and as far as I know, the only one with Customs issues so far.
Can't say I'm that surprised since you are in Germany.
Did you pay more or less taxes for the older Deluxe Bag?received my bag today. Had to pay 40€ in taxes; not suprising.
Outer Nylon material is the same as far as I know. Does the older "Deluxe Bag" feel more premium because of the interior lining?The materials of the deluxe bag have a bit of a higher quality feel to it with its soft interior linings and other details, but the deluxe bag was more expensive.

This is purely aesthetics but I think the elastic cable on the top looks terrible with only 3 loops on each side compared to 4 loops as with the deluxe bag. The cables on both bags are loose but on the deluxe bag it does not appear to be loose and looks cleaner.
Taxes itself were lower for the Wallye but it was handled by DHL Express who charge a fee for the tax handling. Together with the fee I payed roughly the same. Deluxe Bag was shipped standard and I dealt with customs myself -> slightly more hassle (package gets delivered to local customs office instead of your home address) but no additional fees. I prefer this route instead of tax handling by courier (DHL Express, UPS, FedEx) as you have more options when dealing with the tax office and can sometimes get lower rates and even get it excluded from taxes under special circumstances. Most people will prefer the tax handling by courier, but if you go that route, it is wise to have the true value declared on the package (atleast a believable value). You won't get around taxes with big packages. In general if the package is big enough german customs will ignore if the declared value is below the threshold (currently 25€) and will hold it regardless. If the package is small they sometimes challenge it by chance but rarely; most of the time they don't give a fuck when a small package gets valued too low.

I avoided that type of interior lining because that material likes to collect dust. To make things worse, the lining is in black color, that makes white dust very obvious, making the bag look dirty.
I assume you mean the marked loops in the picture? Interesting, I will compare the deluxe bag and see myself.
I was thinking about it, but the manufacturer told us that it's difficult to make sure the top is wrinkle-free (see image above) if the top had removable padding.
Yes, I meant these loops.I assume you mean the marked loops in the picture? Interesting, I will compare the deluxe bag and see myself.
Noted.Other than the interior lining, there are some other minor things like softer and imo better padding on the handle and shoulder strap. I highly prefer the rubber feet of the Deluxe instead of the little plastic ones on the Wallye.
This is partly because I didn't want a wrinkled top - that look on really triggers my OCD. I will do some research into how to resolve this.I dislike how the main zipper has to be closed with quite some stress onto it while the padding is inserted in the Wallye.
It is just a bit too snug, atleast on my bag. Might get better over time, though.Honestly the snug zipper is a good idea, just zip it as shown in his video. The case is padded all around.. I'm quite curious on the firm critiques, honestly, it's a solid deal for what it is. I'll be sure to provide pictures and feedback once I have mine.
