Another Hockey Bag Thread (Question)

I have read the other threads involving bags and I have a few questions:

Who has had either of these two bags and which one should I get?

http://www.icewarehouse.com/descpage.html?pcode=EB5K9

http://www.icewarehouse.com/descpage.html?PCODE=CB6

They seem to be the same type of quality and quality is what I'm after. Went and looked at Bauer bags a few days ago and they were horrendously thin and cheap.

I had an Itech bag for a few years and every pocket has ripped off
Terrible. Never again.

If anyone has any other ideas let me hear them. Want to stay ~$50. These seem to be the best deals in terms of quality/pockets vs price.

Thanks alot.

i see you're in stl. if that's the case, i'd go to your local total hockey and check this bag out: http://totalhockey.net/Product.aspx?...=3443&div_id=2
i believe it's an smu for total hockey and hockeymonkey. i have the warrior version that i purchased from perani's (same exact bag). the material is surprisingly hefty and they're bigger in person than i thought they'd be. i ended up going with the "junior" 32" size as i'd originally ordered the 40 then 36 which were both way too big. i'm 5'8" 200lbs and i still have a ton of room left over in the 32 and the price was right.

Thats funny because I have been looking at that exact bag for a few weeks now. Actually just went up to Total Hockey today and messed around with it. They are huge, I couldnt believe I was looking at a 36". Still, I like having the outer side pockets and these bags have them for around the same price. Good choice though and thanks for the feedback.

Go with the first Reebok you posted. I got that exact one and I love it so far. It's roomy and durable and looks really slick as well.

If you want a quality bag that will last a while get a SMI, Eagle or Defiant hockey bag. Absolutely the best value considering how long they will last.

according to the description it's 40"x20"x18". I got a Bauer XXXX non-wheel on clearance once that I could have sublet as an apartment in NYC. it's not so much the 40 as it is the 20 that makes these bags just way too freakin' big, imo.
I have this bag: http://www.purehockey.com/ecom/produ...Carry-Bag.html and I absolutely love it. exterior skate pockets plus pockets on both ends and the straps are perfectly sized for slinging over my shoulder.

I have this one, and after 4 weeks, it's held up well. I don't think any sub -$100 bag will not be destroyed if pounded, but under normal wear this Reebok 5K should be fine for several years at least.

Go with the RBK bag! I had the CCM and after about 3 months the zippers went. Worst bag I have ever had. I do play a lot at 3 times per week though. I had to cough up more cash and got a Warrior Hitman bag which is more durable.

A few years? Isn't that acceptable for a hockey bag? They aren't made out of steel.

It shouldn't be. The three bags I mentioned earlier should last the average rec player 5+ years, EASY. The typical retail bags with all the bells and whistles are crap, you're lucky if they last you a year before they start breaking.

maybe I'm not rough enough on my bag.....I get regular retail bags and they last about 5 years on average playing 2-3 times a week. or maybe I've just been lucky.....

I like the RBK bag, the first one.

I'm glad you didn't post a wheelie bag. I bought into the hype and got one (well it was on sale) I used it for a few games, then switched to a soft bottom. With the wheelie bottoms it is like loading a 4x8 chunk of plywood into your car with hockey equipment piled on top. Way to heavy too!

Hey man, just poking fun! If it works for you it works for you Nothing wrong with buying a stick at Walmart.

The best player at my regular pickup game uses a $50 Canadian Tire Reebok stick, wears the old Jofa bubble helmet and a half-cage. I think he looks pretty darn good in it, especially when he dangles half our team haha.
