i put elbow pads into shin pads, and put those inside pants. after that helmet and shoulderpads are pretty small and can go in the end or on top of the pants.

The main stuff just gets tossed in... 2 skate slots get the skates obviously, one extra pouch gets gatorade and tape, other gets extra jerseys/socks

Reverse order of dress for the main compartment - helmet, gloves and elbows on the bottom, shoulders over that, then pants on top and shins on either side. Skates in one set of outside pockets, undergear/tape/socks/whatever in the other outside pocket.

Skates go in front, in the Skate pocket.

In the left side compartment, I put my socks on the bottom, and then my goves on top.

In the right side compartment, I put my water bottle, my jock shorts (in a plastic baggie so they don't touch my other stuff), my mouthgaurd, a lock (for the dressing room), and my tape.

In the main part of my bag, the jerseys go down first, then my helmet on the right bottom, my elbow pads on the left bottom, my shoulder pads in between the helmet and elbow pads, my pants on top of that, and my shin pads on the very top.

Everything goes in direction oriented too, and the same way every time.

I'm kinda OCD about my bag, my buddy packed it one time, and it was all wrong, and I almost flipped.

I pack everything EXACTLY the same way in the same placement every time, so as to avoid those moments at the rink: "oh shoot, I forgot my..."

- pants in middle of 40" non-wheeled bag with shin pad inside each leg
- large plastic bag at left of pants containing: 1 dark/1 white jersey, hockey socks, clean t-shirt/underwear
- smaller plastic bag inside larger one with jock, 4 nylon bands for shin pads (don't use tape), and net mesh bag to hold wet clothes after playing
- helmet on right side with one elbow pad inserted into it
- other elbow pad and gloves on top of pants
- shoulder pads on top of gloves - zip bag closed and everything fits perfectly

- left skate into left outside pouch with skate socks inserted into boot
- right skate into right outside pocket with rag underneath skate to wipe off skates

I follow this structure religiously, and have not forgotten an item in a long time, when I used to do so frequently

Interesting thread. I think I might be anal about how I pack/unpack

Skates in skate pocket. shoulders in with helmet resting inside them. Breezers on opposite side, shin pads in each respective leg of breezers, elbow between breezers/shoulders, gloves and other misc smaller items then in the open areas, jersey on top.

Things that go on last go in the bag first with my Bauer foot mat going in last on top of everything.
Sometimes the gloves though go in last as they are last to dry completely.

Pants first, with the shin guards stuck into them. Then helmet, with one glove inside and the other next to the helmet. After that the big things go in first and things like jock and neck guard goes in last. Skates on top of everything.

I put my top stuff in first (shoulders, elbow, jersey, neck), skates in the skate pocket, then go with the rest, my helmet goes in last if I have the visor on it, so it'll be less likely to scratch.

Skates in the pockets.
Shoulders laid flat along the bottom.
Mitts and elbows crammed into one end.
Pants...take up most of the bag.
Shins either in the legs of the breezers or smashed on top, depending on how careful i'm being.

Helmet usually gets chin-strapped to the bag handle to save visor scratches. Full cage - when i pack it - gets crammed-in next to the gloves and elbows.

I bought the biggest skaters bag i could find to make sure i didn't have to sweat space, tuck, and stuff, but my large-mammal sized gear just barely fits.

Just throw everything in. I only carefully put in my skates so they aren't rubbing up against my helmet.

1. Pants
2. Shins inside the pants
3. Elbow Pads inside the shins
4. Gloves cover
5. Helmet tucked into the space leftover
6. Shoulder pads on top of pants
7. Skates on top (they come out of the bag when I get home)

I have a 32" bag so It's a tight fit but I've got it down to a science.

Shoulder pads on one end...helmet fits inside the shoulder pads as they don't lay flat very well. Shin pads on the bottom (plastic down) with the gloves inside the knee of the shin pads and the elbow pads lower down also inside the shin pads. Then skates and pants on top. Everything else I just fit where I can.

1. Goaltender leg pads long wise
2. Put my goal helmet inside my goalie pants and alongside my leg pads
3. Glove and blocker at the ends.
4. Jersey, socks, UnderArmor, Jock, Water bottle along with deodorant, bodywash in bag
5. Then place my chest protector ontop of this
6. Lastly, lay out a towel and place my goalie skates ontop and wrap it up


It all fits perfect in my bag as well as its easy to never forget something since its the same routine every time.

You can pack a bag?!

I just chuck it all in,

saying that though... I like to specifically place my kit once it's out, (As a ref) so in my case I have my skates and shinpads at the bottom of the chair.. with my sweats etc on a chair next to me in the order that I put them on in... Box > Socks > Shorts > Shirt.

I pack my shinpads inside my pants, elbow pads inside the shinpads. I put the shoulder pads next to the pants and the helmet (in helmet bag) goes on top of the shoulder pads. Skates go inside the skate pockets.

For me, it's important to have a packing system, because then I'll notice if I forget something. This helps me avoid leaving equipment behind in the locker room.

Why? You can only put on one pad at a time.
