What car do you use to haul your gear to games?

Recommended Posts

I've got a Jeep Grand Cherokee and all my gear fits perfectly in the back. 

Whenever I am new car shopping, the car will have to easily fit my gear in!

Subaru Impreza hatchback. Doesn't matter if there's a blizzard, the goalie is showing up to the game

Not much of a car guy at all, but playing goalie has always ensured that my weird love for station wagons will continue. Much like my gear, I prefer the older stuff, even if I fully acknowledge it's less safe, functional, etc.

I grew up with a Volvo 240 in this exact blue (!), and it had a super-roomy trunk for my gear (and a teammate's). It was beautiful. Well, I didn't think so at the time... but everyone in town sure knew who I was!

I've driven Subaru Foresters since ~2012. My wife and I just leased a 2019. The trunk isn't much compared to that Volvo, but I fit my big bag, pads, and sticks just fine. I always drive to hockey by myself, anyway.

Now if we're talking which cars I *wish* I had to take my gear to hockey...

Santa Fe XL.

I fit my gear, my sons gear, my wife and daughter's stuff, as well as presents and luggage for our Xmas trip out of town  - with myself and 4 passengers seated comfortably!

well... comfortably before playing, at least...

Used to have a dodge ram quad cab. Everything fits in the cab. The current gen F150's have plenty of room in the cab (4 door), which is my dad's.20190110_105532.thumb.jpg.d15551bf6405b2ccb160a235fdbcd2c3.jpg

Yay for bright colours. 2004 GMC Jimmy is our official play vehicle. I actually lived out of this vehicle when I first started my career. We've been inseparable, she took me all over the continent in search of employment and roots. People often ask me why I don't dump the ol' shitbox for something nice and I ask them why their nose is broken. The Armadilla is in there because of a similar attachment.

18 Jeep Wrangler unlimited, fits nicely with 1/2 of the back seat folded down.

Either of these do the trick for me with room to spare. One has creature comforts and lots of tech, the other has an engine and seats and not much else.

At one point I had a 2006 Volvo XC90 that was just used for hockey and IKEA trips lol. 

After I got my Tesla, we traded in that car and our i3 for a 2018 Volvo XC60.

2015 Malibu

I put my leg pads in my bag, believe it or not, but the bag fits easily into the trunk of this thing.  The trunk is VERY deep.  4 Sets of golf clubs easily.

Used to be this... 2012 WRX... stage 2 for those who may be gear heads...

Then we had twins so I went for something slightly bigger... 2015 Forester XT. No engine mods but the entire suspension is aftermarket (2” drop roughly)... and a bunch of other bits as well. Pictured in the OEM wheels for the winter...

Bag fits in the trunk... sticks & pads go in the back seat. Actually worked out that way with both cars... but the Forester XT has a taller and slightly deeper trunk.

BMW X5

I've also got an X5, sometimes me and my son practice on the same team together, and it fits us both together with gear as well.

I'm thoroughly surprised that so many people have pictures of their vehicles, ready for quick posting!

You're just jealous we have cars.
