Pro Style Bags
 
Has anyone ever used one of these and if so what was your experience with it. The ones I am talking about are the ones that are a little shorter, lets say 30in instead of 40in, but are a little taller than the regular bag. Pros? Cons? Thanks

they are usually pretty well made. the problem for beer leaguers is that the pro bags usually have no pockets. its just a big ass bag. Pro's dont have to worry about bringing extra tape, and a towel, shampoo, shower shoes in their hockey bags. Everything is provided for them. they also dont have to bring jerseys and socks.

Thanks for the input. That will help a lot.

Yeah if you don't mind tossing everything in one bag and fishing it all out they will last a lifetime.

The Warrior Pro Bag that I have is really good, if you're willing to spend about $100. It has I think 4 inner mesh pockets good for your tape, accessories and outerwear. There are many smaller bag-only manufacturers out there producing pro-style carry bags so it's not too hard to find.

Thanks for the help guys. Bauer kind of offered the best of both worlds to a degree. I went with this one: http://www.totalhockey.com/product/P...39745&mtx_id=0

We got those in recently. VERY good deal at $70 or $80.

I've used a lot of different bags, but the best one I've ever used is the Reebok bag I'm using now. I think it's discontinued though.

I tried one of the old Jofa pro style bags a while ago and after a while it got old fishing around for stuff in it. And it was harder to carry than the longer/shallower bags.

Although not a pro-bag, I'm expecting a new bag in the mail today; I got the Alkali CA9 backpack bag. I got tired of fighting my way out of a packed locker room with a giant wheelbag. I felt like I was trying to thread the needle through the tiny locker room door. Hope its big enough for all my stuff. I may have to tetris my gear in there.

Cool, glad to hear it!

I got a Reebok "Pro Player" pro style equipment bag off the monkey a few months ago and couldn't be happier!

http://www.hockeymonkey.com/reebok-h...-pro-36in.html

It only cost me $36 and the 36in one is already HUGE! My old KOHO bag had done me well for over 10 years but one day as I was lifting it up to put in the trunk both shoulder straps clean ripped off at once!

With about 3 months of usage, 2-3 times a week, I haven't seen a bit of meaningful wear on it and it has so much volume that I could easily fit 2+ sets of player gear in there if I wanted.

It does only have one small mesh zipper pocket inside for accessories but also has internal skate pockets which is helpful. For other stuff I just have a cheap mesh bag I got at the store to keep the little things that might get lost in the bag.

Can't beat the bang for the buck IMHO.
