Best bags 2020
« on: April 15, 2020, 05:07:26 AM »


Whats peoples opinion on the best bags for 2020, I took a punt and got a legend duffle in the jan sales which I thought was the best bag after I had done a bit of research.....

I used it for 2/3 net sessions and the main handle is already coming off so PDC have offered a refund. So Im now thinking whats the best bag again

Ideally I wanted a duffle but in my experience no duffle stands up well when loaded and defeats the point. I think I would choose the gn test wheelie bag over the legend duffle now as dimensions seem similar but looks like it holds way more kit and more importantly for me stands up well due to the solid base......

Whats peoples thoughts/ recommendations please

Anyone got a gn test wheelie bag ? If so thoughts please

Thanks

Morning - all rounder are doing a version of the GN Legend duffle from a few seasons ago in their own colours. I got one in Jan - just as good quality as the GN one and lots of pockets/space. Half the price that the GN was too.

My lad has the Ayrtek duffle, which is Huge with loads of pockets. fits a full batting and wicket keeping kit in comfortably.

I have the Qdos duffle from Devon county sports and for 30 it's excellent value for money.

However, Bear Cricket have a duffle out at the moment and it's the Bee's Knee's I liked that a lot when I saw it up close, as Well as Neon crickets Duffle too.

I spent a long time looking at bags, going round and round from duffle, wheelie duffle, large bag even hard case coffin. Ended up going with SF summit LE duffle. Absolutely massive for a duffle and stands up well. Good price too.

I went with a.  QDOS bag from eBay for 30 which I think is the in house brand. From Somerset county sports. Duffle with 3 bat pockets that are padded, pad sections on the side, shoe section, large main section, valuables section and 2 other decent sized pockets and stands up fine when loaded.
Overall very happy with it.

The other bags i have is a large Aero coffin on wheels that must be 5 seasons old and its still in great condition so those two and a Surridge wheelie the Test version. Its massive and holds all batting, keeping kit, lid, whites and 4 bats and still has room. Loads of external pockets as well for wash bag, sun glasses, grips so would recommend all 3 depending of you want a wheelie or duffle.

similar size to legend, slightly smaller

however will fit more kit due to better lay out and actually stands up

New Chase bags look nice. Downside is they don't say GN on the side :) Very similar to the Indian and Aus GN bags and 20% off at the moment

Terrible design these bags Michael, it may stand up, but not when open. Will be much bigger than the legend duffle as well

to be fair to @DorsetDan I saw the new chase bags at the serious cricket event and they did look rather nice

I've also had a play with the Neon one that @WalkingWicket37  mentioned too. also a seriously nice bag

I have the GN test holdall and would highly recommend it.  Huge bag and well organised.  May be a bit large for the needs of some people , but I always carry a lot of kit to games and have found it to be exactly what I need
