Best Bags 2021
« on: January 27, 2021, 02:19:51 AM »

Having been thoroughly dissapointed by my Shrey Wheelie Duffle, I'm in the market for a new bag. This time I'm looking for a Wheelie instead of a duffle.

The best wheelie I've ever had was a duplex GM bag that had a foam padded bat cave underneath. I got it on here for like 40! Is there anything that good left on the market?

Phantom's bags always look amazing. @hell4leather cricket bags this year look great too!

Can you tell us why you are thoroughly disappointed with Shrey, because I was literally going to suggest that when I read the title.

The new Scott wheelie duffle looks very nice and has pretty much all the features I'd want in a bag - https://scottcricketbats.co.uk/collections/luggage/products/pro-duffle-bag

I'd have got one in a second if I hadn't got a new bag at the end of last season.

Thanks Jimbo, appreciate the feedback! Another forumite has just purchased one and I'm led to believe there may be a review coming soon 👍

I've got a GM original duffle which is amazing, I'm sure they do a wheelie bag if you like the one you had previously?

Not completely on topic because I can't recommend a specific wheelie, but the thing that has annoyed me the most with the wheelie and duffles I've owned is the p!ss poor quality of the zips used. Each time it has been zip failure that's meant I've had to get a new bag.  Which is a shame, as my Kookaburra pro duffle was excellent apart from that.

If there is a brand out there that can specify in their design, or manufacture, good quality zips (e.g. YKK) then you will have me as a customer.

I take my kit to games on the back of a motorbike, so working zips are important. As a biker, I've also found out about quality zip makers and why it's worth paying a bit more for them because zips are everywhere on clothing.

I fell foul of this. My kook duffle zips split after five games. Bought the latest B3 black wheelie. The zips are heavy duty, I can definitely recommend it...

I think the best zips on a bag I've had was on my salix bag. Still one of my biggest regrets selling it

My Gn predator duffle went basically at every single zip at the same time. Had it for two years which is about borderline acceptable. Just amazing that 4/6 game up in the space of maybe a week.

On the hunt for a new, preferably non wheeled, duffle with as many pockets as possible. If anyone has any recommendations.

My Slaix Pod one lasted ages and the zips were solid, I have the B3 wheelie duffle - it too is excellent and has solid zips.

Most resilient bags I've had have been Salix and Chase.
