Need help getting a bag.

I thought this was going to be simple until I had seen all the different types and sizes. I was going to get the biggest I had seen, then I thought about carrying it.

I have a cheap 25.00 Easton bag that is not big enough. The zipper broke on it. I am a senior player. I want to spend between 25-35.

What size do you recommend and which bag is good for that price and where to buy it at the best price.

Thanks.

Just get any bag that can fit all of your stuff, a Senior size obviously, get a wheelie if you're lazy or a traditional one if you're...traditional

It's not easy anymore to find a bag, eh? Last year, I tried to find a "traditional" bag - only one pocket for rolls of tape, only one zipper, nice and cheap...

I went to three different stores and I couldn't find anything. I ended up going to Walmart where I had to settle for cheap and only a few pockets. It has two zippers, like a pencil case, which is a pain in the ass. It looks all flashy too, which made me feel like a ****** the first time I used it.

If you can find a traditional one for cheap, buy it right away. Don't mess around with wheels and a billion different pockets. A big bag won't weigh you down much more than a smaller one, it's the weight of the gear in the bag that is heavy. Besides, it's a bag, save your money.

This seems to be a decent bag. Nike Bauer Vapor XXXX Senior Hockey Bag. This one is a little cheaper but I can't tell if the straps go all the way around. CCM Vector V4.0 Hockey Equipment Bag - 40 Inch.


My experience is you want a bag that has straps that wrap all the way underneath the bag, otherwise they tend to separate and the bag becomes instant junk.

That CCM was the one I was going to get. I will probably go with that one.

Thank you all.
