This past weekend a very special box arrived in the post and one that I’ve been excitingly waiting for from DJ / record travel bag sponsor, Magma. Announced a few months back and during the beginning of the pandemic, Magma gave hints of their new bag, the Riot 45 Trolley and once I saw the completed version, I was absolutely floored with how it turned out.
The Riot 45 Trolley is something that hasn’t been previously done, yet is something that seems like it should’ve been done, but everything in due time and it was well worth the wait. Unlike other 45 bags, this one is a full on trolley that holds a hefty 280 45’s in a removable compartment which makes it easy for travel as well as pulling out for use when you’re inside the DJ booth where space is often times very limited. Upon opening the large box and removing the trolley from it’s packaging, I instantly felt the quality of the bag which has become synonyms throughout their product line.
Constructed from only the highest-grade materials such as water-ressistant RIOT Tarpaulin, a strong telescopic-handle and smooth rolling precision inline wheels to protect your valuable investment. This past weekend I gave the bag a test run and packed it full of my favorite 7’s and toted it to a fellow collectors house while taking the long way across a few cobblestoned pavements, up a flight of stairs and back down again just to see if it could take the shock and it handled like “fine German engineering” (as they say in the automotive world).
All in all, the Riot Trolley is tough as nails, beautifully designed to fit all of the traveling DJ’s needs and it fits comfortably in airline overhead compartments which makes this extra essential for us DJ’s when it’s time to take long flights again while keeping our precious cargo close. Dare I say it’s the perfect bag? It pretty much is and I’ve yet to see any flaw in it’s design or construction. Top notch in every way, now if I can just jump on a flight to go on tour, life would be perfect!
