Many thanks to those who have made recommendations!

Do you have this bag? My current one is a smaller Phantom which is a couple of years old. The zips went within a year so just curious to see if theyve got any better

Yes. No issues with zips so far.

GM original came the other day.......checked zip and the main zipper is dodgy already so being returned in the post today and opted for refund not replacement. Tempted to just stick with my medium sized Aero wheelie bag and Newberry backpack combo now!

Had a few outdoor nets already this year so my 1 season plus two net old Phantom has just thrown a boot cave zip.

Also I put my hand in to rummage around the bottom and I caught my fingers on a fixing bolt for the wheels. They must stick out about 2cm.

That and the fact I have to be gentle when putting the bats in the sleeves otherwise they hit the hard plastic covering the wheels then I'd have to say it looks well built but is lacking in the final build quality.

If I were looking for a bag, I'd be looking at a B3 (no relation).

I believe most, if not all wheelie duffles have the issue of the wheel casing bumping into the bats. They are also substantially heavier than non wheel duffles. This prompted me to switch to the non wheel phantom from last year - its a great bag, though with the curtailed season, hasnt really been abused much yet.

Good brand. Were sold out of Just Sport in Newcastle. Had bat, pads and gloves from them a year or two back, really good quality and good prices, would recommend. Would imagine the bags are of a similar quality.

Thank you - the bags look decent and not paying a premium as per some bags. Guess issue is there is no such thing as the perfect bag.

Odd then that you pay a premium for a bag that is specially designed to protect your gear and that hasn't been thought of.

I had a Aero tour bag. Protection was fine but while pulling it along it would become unstable and fall over. I'm 6ft'ish but not the first impression you want to make while travelling from the car park to the oppo clubhouse.

No bag is perfect for individual needs, but you'd hope they would get the basics right.

While I don't think Kookaburra have a wheeled duffle. Nobody seems to mention them, yet they seem well put together.

Most do, just depends if the brand has really had any input in the design or has just used the bog standard off the shelf option - for what it's worth the rear bat compartment on mine was specifically designed so that the wheels don't come into contact with the bats and I'm yet to have any issues to date
