Small duffles / the new GN Pro Performance Rucksack
« on: February 22, 2019, 12:52:20 PM »

Context: I am in London and therefore prefer a duffle rather than a wheelie bag.

My main bag is the big Newbury Quantum, and its cavernous size means I store all my kit in it during the winter (except bats).



I've been looking for a smaller duffle as a net bag for when I'm carrying limited kit and don't want to lug the big guy around. There are a few options, including some budget-friendly GMs from the new range. However, this caught my eye:

The bottom section is extendable so I think it would just about take a pair of men's pads, and there's a makeshift bat section as well. Part of me thinks it's weird, but I could see the appeal of using it as just a regular backpack as well.

Thoughts?

Seems to be 50cm long with the extension so not long enough for pads. I must admit I got pretty excited about that bag when I first saw it for similar reasons.

Last seasons GN Predator Junior duffle is still the best small duffle I've found that can somehow also manage to squeeze in full match day kit while not be too big on the train

A quick Google suggested an average pad is about 50cm, am I wrong?
