Grit Hockey tower bag
 
$165 is a bit pricey, but very cool indeed:

I do like the jersey holder:

Wow $160 for a hockey bag. My bags like a bottomless pit it takes me a hour or two just to find my gloves. Props to Grit for making a ******** of money off it. For kids or a goalie yes, if anyone on my team ever walked in with that he'd be ripped into pieces.

There's a bunch of kids on my son's team that have those. They are pretty cool.

Yeah if your not 10 years old or a on crutches, you may as well walk into the change room with a purse and pink hot pants.

I totally see the need for a bag like the grit tower, but I'm not going to be the first adult in mens league, at shinny, or any rink to haul this in.

My 3 bags are all just big pits, even my goalie bag doesn't have wheels.

A guy on my beer league team has one of these, we made fun of him for a game or two but that's it. Main advantage seems to be that you don't have to take your gear out to dry it, just open it up when you get home and it acts like a drying rack, but the little carpet for your feet is just beyond ridiculous. Aside from getting chirped, the main issue for me is that it's just way too much money to spend on a bag, I'd rather save my $160 and just hang my gear up when I get home, takes like 30 seconds.

I have one and I love it, I live in an apartment so it's a huge help when drying my gear with little space I have. I've had a few chirps but once people see how everything is held together they appreciate it.

I have the one without the jersey holder

That's one of the features I really like actually. I always pack flip flops in my bad beacause i am not about to let some funk start growing on the bottom of my feet. There are a few guys on my team that spread out a mat in the locker room. This serves the same purpose but takes up the least amount of room.

I think that is what I really like about this bag. You can ope it up, have the rug and have all your gear looking right at you without taking up a ton of room like a traditional bag thrown out in front of you. That said, I really don't like wheely bags and I'm not about to drop that kind of coin on a bag. My $40 carry on my shoulder bag works just fine.

If they made one of those that could fit goalie gear I'd get one in a heartbeat.

The problem with a mat is that bacteria aren't stationary and when you roll up the mart and stick it in your bag you are basically rolling up the crap on the floor and sticking it into your bag.

I have a big bag I usually take out the hockey pants stick them on a hook and stick my feet in the bag.

I also use a mat, first, I look for a dry place in our dressing room and put my bag onto the mat below the bench...I just use it after the shower...second I wash my mat with socks and jerseys. mine was a TPS gift, rubber downside and a material, thats not getting soaked much.
Although I like the Grit concept...I once saw a review how it was invented for kids/their parents, to organize the equipment AND the dressing room...the problem was, it has to be a big/open room, where all kids use this tower in front of them and build a circle...when you have small rooms with 3 rows of benches and all are just dropping their bags, this monster eats space...to move with it through the room and stuffing it! Love my pro-bags...

How do you carry it? Is it backpack style or wheeled?

blueberrydanish 12-09-2010 07:51 PM

If you leave your pants/chesty in there they dont seem to be getting as much air as they would if you hung them up. Its nice, but honestly, tip it over, and its just a normal bag with a vent on the bottom and dividers for your gear and slot for sticks. If it was normal price for a tad over Id understand, but 160$ too much for what all you get out of it vs normal bags.

For the goalie one, I can barely fit my goalie bag into my car as is, dont think the legs ontop would work out at all =<. Suppose could always take them off before putting in the car easily though.

Wheeled. Which makes it great for little kids. It's also nice that everything has its own spot, so you can see pretty quickly whether something's missing. I totally want to get my son one, but I'm hitting up the grandparents for it. :)

ean 12-10-2010 11:37 AM

Novel idea but i prefer to throw all my gear into my bag in an unorganized fashion.

Harv 12-10-2010 03:42 PM

Does it come with a mirror too?

Jarick 12-10-2010 04:21 PM

Good idea, just way too big.

I had a Shock Doctor bag that had compartments for the gear, it was a huge time saver. Really made it hard to leave stuff at home. Of course, it was expensive and heavy as hell.
