Used one last year. Great bag, only issues for me no shoe compartment, ended up using a boot bag, and I couldn't fit keeping gear in when required, i had to put my clothes rolled up in the mesh compartment, which actually worked quite well.

I would recommend it though. Stands upright, to the point you don't even have to lay it flat to open it up

Got one of these. Insane amount of room and is my bag of choice this season.
Very sturdy too.

I have one of these, huge bag. Can fit two sets of batting pads, wicket keeping gear, two helmets and five bats in with relative ease!

Only thing I would say is the zips on the under side are quite flimsy.

I've seen petes bag
It's perfect if you have plenty of kit
The fact it stands up is a huge plus point for it

Great thanks for the replies. Looks like this will be my bag of choice too. Cant fault my current Salix for quality, its just not big enough

are they similar to the CP cricket bags?

if so they are very good nice compartments and bat cave (room for 2) very sturdy - just make sure you have room in your boot!

I'll add my tuppence too, I used one the past two seasons (switch to GN Legend this year to try a duffle for the first time) and it was great, loads of room, decent wheels and very sturdy when stood up, don't know if they still come with dividers but I thought they were a waste of time. As someone else said, the mesh section at the top works really well for keeping clothing in. The bat cave is only big enough for 2 bats but keeps them well protected imo.

On the back of everyones feedback I ordered one last week and if the UPS tracker is to be believed it will be with me tomorrow.

Thanks for all the posts, I will add to the topic after a while with my own views in case anyone else is interested

Just thought I'd update this for anyone that is interested having used it for the last 9/10 weeks

Top top quality bag both in terms of design and manufacture. Without doubt my favorite buy of the last 12 months.

2/3 carrying/pulling handles and wheels are hard wearing Salix style

Ive never filled it to its maximum capacity despite my best efforts.

Huge main compartment (I keep my spikes, softs and helmet in here with extra space left over) with mesh pocket (caps, socks, briefs, sweatbands) in the door which is very handy

Middle section is the whole footprint of the bag lying down which i keep all my whites and sweaters, towel and any evening wear in with loads of room to spare

Below this is the bat cave which has 2 sleeves well protected. If you removed the middle divider you could get at least 3 bats in here in their own sleeves/covers.

On the side of the bag when its stood up are two side pockets. I fit my washbag in the top one easily and usually a drink and a snack in the bottom.

In my opinion the only way this bag could improved is if it had 3 padded bat caves instead of 2 and one of the side pockets was refrigerated material to keep food/drinks cold like my Affinity gym bag. Little plug for the caveman there

9.8/10
