Haven't been able to buy it to verify the quality, but it looks practical and professional. So this "review" is just to let anyone associated with TCC know that there are people waiting for this to come back in stock, as I personally will buy two, maybe 3. So please TCC, I've seen a lot of delays with bringing this product back (Since early in the year I think). So don't discontinue it, this could very well be in every Close-up and Parlor professionals arsenal, and become an affordable peripheral for every magician.

Highest praise indeed! Report this review

So, this is the person that left the "I am waiting to buy them" review below. I've had two of these since June 11th, and ordered 3 more today, and they're as wonderful as I thought they would be. So for this product the old cliche of "What you see is what you get" is 100% true. Nothing to complain here. Well built, and spacious enough to fit a lot of Close-up magic in them. Now, for a parlor show you might want to get something bigger if you carry thicker/taller props. I carry a very light "packs small plays big" parlor show and it fits an entire show in one bag, but millage may vary. Internally, from floor to roof, it's 2.5 inches tall, so again, pretty spacious depending on what props you wish to put in it. Now the bag being quite compact (12.5 inches wide and 9 inches deep) will take some experimenting if you want to max it out (Ala Tetris), but with the included removable dividers (That function as shock absorbers for more delicate props) you can play around and make it work. I cannot yet say anything about the longevity of these bags since I've only had them for a month, but they feel and look sturdy enough to make me believe they will stand the test of time (With proper care of course).

Very much worth it. Report this review

TCC has been knocking it out of the park with affordable playing cards and accessories for magicians recently. Their close up bag is no different. The bag is very close to a messenger bag but more sturdy. In addition, the inside includes an arrangement of dividers that can be adjusted if needed. Overall, it's great for holding props, cards, sponge balls, and any other items that you might need.

Close up Bag by TCC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2020
Finally was able to find a close up case that would work for me, TCC has a great product ! the inside of the case is customizable to whatever your needs are I have my close up/ street gig that I do weekly and this bag is perfect for holding everything that I need to do my shows. It fits a lot as I set my shows up in Three sets of Three so nine routines in all and this case holds all of it plus some extra supplies. Its a great quality as well which I have found in all the TCC products I currently own.

Nice looking and practical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 28th, 2019
I can't believe I just found out about this close up bag after years of browsing Penguin!

It's compact and easy on the eye. Unlike many close up bulky and thick metal cases that scream "Look at me, I'm a magician!", this is an unassuming and light carrier bag that won't look out of place anywhere.

Of course, inside it is where the magic takes place and I was pleased to find the different modular partitions to suit any specific props and materials you'd need on that particular event/day.

Reason for the 4 stars is due to the lack of a compartment for packet tricks (of which I carry about 3 at a time). Sure, you can stand the cards up vertically directly between 2 partitions, but they stick out and are slightly taller than the top edges of the partitions. I nearly bent one set of cards using this when I wasn't paying attention closing the lid.

Of course, you can always lay them down flat and put something like a deck of cards or a wallet on top, but I prefer the former method for quick and easy retrieval.

Bottom line is, given the size and dimensions of this, don't expect to store a zipper change bag, magic wand or normal sized book test and still expect to have space for cards and coins. However, if you don't carry any of the above, then I'd say this bag is highly recommended, especially for the casual performer.

Excellent EDC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2019
This is what a close-up case should look like. If you are the kind of person (like myself) that won't leave home without "something magical", you have found the right product. Space it out however you want to with the provided dividers.

Just as an idea of what it can carry, mine right now has 6 decks of cards a soft and a hard thumbtip, a silk. a set of Jerry Andrus linking pins as well as another set that has a 2 bent up pins kicker. 4 ea of 1" & 2" sponge balls, a couple of TCC Rubber Band holders full of different colors, a Mini Don Alan chop cup with everything needed for James Swain's version (not using baseballs though) several coin sets (along with needed coin gaffs), 3 packet trick wallets (also TCC), a Telic Wand (small) for a wand and for cig thru quarter and at the top, a beautiful Suede Leather Mini Pad (Blue) by TCC which fits perfectly in the case on top of everything.

You make the call what you carry, this is just one of my configurations. I have to say, when TCC first hit the site with a couple offerings, I was skeptical but I grabbed a packet wallet and a couple rubberband boards and was so impressed with their quality and pricing, I would buy (and almost have bought) anything they put out without hesitation.

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2019
Another beautiful piece from tcc. Size of it is great it takes my A, B and C sets and it takes some extra decks coins etc. Quality is pretty good and price is quite reasonable. It’s a must have for sure.

Love this close-up case Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 21st, 2018
I now have three of these. They are very easy to configure and look great.

I have looked at other more expensive cases but haven't found one yet that matches this one for functionality and quality.

The only small issue I have is that it doesn't easily hold a full size wand. I typically use a Telic (which fits fine in the zippered compartment) but my Mercury wand has to simply lay diagonally across the top.

Still that's a very small issue for a case that brings big value.
