Give me wheel bag reccomendations.

I am shopping for a new bag and I need one with wheels. LHS do not have anything that meets my needs so all I can go in are the online descriptions. Everything pretty much looks the same to me, looking for input.

just picked up the CCM V 8.0 wheeled bag from greatskate, for my youngest. Three wheels and very flex bottom that isnt going to snap. At 59 US it was a pretty good buy. If a goalie and wearing Senior size gear it will be a tad small. The Simmons Goalie bag is outstanding. I have that one but they dont ship it to the US. You would have to know someone local to get it for you or be able to swing by the store to get it. HUGE durable bag..

go see your dentist and get custom....

hes asking a legit question before putting a buck into a bag. Its easy to end up wasting a bit of coin on a bag that falls apart on ya. Whats with the insults today? tipped a few and got some beer muscles?

With a non-wheeled bag, I used to have to walk down 6 floors worth of stairs (and UP the same stairs AFTER the game) in my old building....and I'm a goalie! My gear is 10x heavier than a player's gear. If my place had an elevator, I would've switched to wheels as well. Save your back, I say.
Now, my place has an elevator, and I bought a wheeled bag, but the stupid thing doesn't fit into my ride!...I can't win.

JM47; good luck with your search.

I found one, we'll see how it goes. Luckily the rink I play at does have the elevator. My back couldn't handle what yours did.

I installed two wheels myself on a regular bag. It took me a few hours, but I saved money!

Get the one with handle stitched to the side since the telescopic handle is just another failure point. I've got a new model Mission bag that is perfect for my needs. I wouldn't recommend it, though, because one zipper on side compartment broke within a few months of use.
