Westcoast Tender Posted January 15, 2019 Share Posted January 15, 2019 I was able to snag one of these first run goalie bags from Pacific Rink. They produced a limited amount to have some of us tested them out and give feedback before going full run with them. Background: my preference is a carry bag. I have owned a wheeled bag but found it more of a nuisance and heavy if you get one with a good frame in it to lift in/out of the car. I carry my pads separate over the shoulder. I did purchase the Passau goalie backpack but didn’t find it worked for me. All my equipment plus pads made the bag too heavy for my 5’4” frame. I always felt like I was going to throw my back out. Removing the pads from the bag made the bag too empty and it didn’t carry properly. Ideally, I wanted a backpack bag but smaller than what Passau offers but still bigger than Player backpacks...so I could get through doors more easily but still carry my pads separately. I’ve used the Pacific Rink bag several times and so far it is exactly what I was looking for. These first 3 pictures show it fully loaded up. It has an outer pocket on one side and one small pocket on one end. The top centre zipper is actually a third external pocket that you can actually access from the inside through an internal zipper. I keep my jerseys in it. Picture 4 shows the carrying straps. I have them clipped together in the “backpack” config. If you leave them unclipped, the bag can be used as a regular over one shoulder carry bag. I will show the internals on a second post. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
