this bag formed the basis for most other brands that copied it, woodwork did almost an exact copy and NB do one too now. I had one along with the tour bag when we were with adidas and they were good but didn't stand up very well. I used a similar model for my own but with a separate bat section at the rear so that you don't have to worry about wedging bats back into the main section if its full of kit.

Yes, separate bat section is a good idea, and you're right, it doesn't stand up too well.

Gosh, I've really go into this thread and am really thinking of a new bag now - DAMN YOU NERDS!   :o

A stand up / wheelie / duffel all in one seems to be difficult to find.

are there any recommendations for wheelies that genuinely do stand up - i may forgo the duffel bit?

I don't really get the wheelie duffel thing - what I've always liked about a duffle is that you don't have to carry all the extra weight of wheels, reinforcement etc that make a wheelie bag a pain. Make it massive and add loads of struts/wheels and you're back to square one?

I've had a GN Predator Pro bag the last couple of years, not perfect but haven't seen anything else I thought looked better. The new Chase ones look suspiciously similar but in a nicer colour scheme.

Agreed I was happy and now I fancy the Aero tour stand up  :D

I agree regarding the wheelie duffle bag. I don't particularly see the point in it, can anyone explain the benefits of this?

i agree 100% what is the point of having wheels on a duffel when the whole point is it to go on your back as a back back. The wheels generally are the issue that stop it from standing

The top aero stand up bag is one of the most organized bags out there. Truly phenomenal as long as you have enough space in your car and dont care about having a duffle. I use it in my nets now as my kit dries up a lot quicker than in a more cramped duffle.

It can be a pain to insert the side panels but its rock solid once youre done. Here is a review:

i think this could be the one :)

I also dont see the point of a wheelie-duffle. You are pretty much back at a normal cricket bag.

I have used both the Aero stand up and Hell4Leather Standup, both excellent quality bags which stand up when completely empty with the side supports in. Hell4Leather definitely bigger and has a couple of extra pockets for dry/wet clothes etc.

The wheelie duffle thing. Steps amd stairs. To get to a game, im walking down steps,  loading the car, more steps involved to and from.

With the wheelie i can stick it on my back for the steps, wheel it elsewhere. My GN test bag was cumbersome with the steps. You know the deal. Grab the straps, lean back as you waddle with it held in front of you.

A wheelie duffle gives me (if no one else!) the best of both worlds...

Could have written this myself.
The predator has a great design but mines has worn out fairly quickly and the zoos are all broken or on their last legs. Had it two seasons so its had a fair bit of use but nothing extreme.

If I was more organised with my kit i'd manage with a much smaller bag. Problem is I'm in too much of a hurry to go for a pint after the game that I throw everything in

So what really does stand up - and what flatters to deceive?

I once had a bag from Prosport, Prostar?  Didn't look promising, but stood up straight like a trooper!
