Product Review: Greyed Out Productions
Today I have for you something a little different. A review of a company I have had the pleasure to purchase from.
With the wargaming hobby, there are many differences between games. We have so much choice nowdays, from 40k and fantasy to Infinity, Warmachine, Hordes, Battletech, and countless others. What most of these games have in common is that almost all of them use dice in one way or another. Over time most of us gamers tend to collect a number of dice, and keeping them in their origional little plastic containers doesn’t always seem to be the best option. Most of us end up with a dice bag of one type or another. Dice bags come in all shapes and sizes, with the express goal of holding your dice. Not all dice bags are created equal though, some are too small, and all too many of the commercially made ones are just flimsy, with either the cords falling apart or the bag itself wearing out at the seams, with the same result, dice all over the floor, or spilled across the car, the inside of a backpack, with some never to be seen again.
Enter Greyed Out Productions, run by Micheal Althauser. Greyed Out produces dice bags, marketed under the label of “high quality dice bags” Let me tell you that from my experience, this is absolutely true. I ordered a bag from his Etsy store [links below] on August 20th and a meer eight days later the bag had arrived.
The craftsmanship of the dice bag is excellent, with solid stitching and a double layer of resiliant fabric. Giving the bag a gentle test I foud that the craftsmanship is as solid as it is neat. There are no hanging threads or other visible defects at all.
The design of the bag is also quite good, with a flat bottom that allows the bag to sit upright, with very little danger of tipping over or spilling. I am already looking forward to using it during my next game. The bag is nicely sized, with carrying capacity to spare In the pictures you will notice that it has plenty of room, even with all 125 of the munitorium dice. I have no doubt that this bag could easily hold my entire collection of 40k dice with room to spare for a small tape measure and any other small gaming aids I might think of.
My only complaint is that the drawstrings have a little trouble holding the opening of the bag completely closed, but I think that’s more due to the fact that it’s still new and the fabric is a little stiff. Looping the drawstrings around and tying them with a single knot keeps the bag nice and secure though with nothing to worry about.
All in all I strongly urge you to give his store a look. With plenty of different styles to chose from there is something for just about everyone.
These dice bags are awesome give them a look!
