Equipment bag thread


Recommended Posts

I'd used the Eagle bag (40 x 24 x 20") for about 10 years (even moved countries with it) and it developed a few cuts and a couple of wear holes.

It was great, could throw everything in with realtive ease - 34+2 pads, L CCM pants, M Brown 2400CA, Mask, Glove and blocker, skates, sweats etc

Got a True bag (40 x 20 x 20") - Its a very, very tight fit compared to the Eagle.  When its late and im tired after a skate, the last thing i want is to play a giant game of tetris with my bag and have to force it to zip up.

Most bags are aound the 40 x 20 x 20" dimensions (some have 1 side thats 22")

Cant find anywhere to order the Eagle bag!

How much space does the bag take in the change rooms on the floor given its shape?

It takes up about 1 and a half of a normal adult-sized player bag if put on the big flat side, but it isn't as high due to the bag being like a foot tall in the one dimension. That being said, it can be stood on the long and skinny end and the U shape opened up toward you which conserves quite a bit of space. I usually do this until i have to get the pads out and then i quickly put on my stuff and wad the bag up toward the bench i am sitting on. It has never been a problem with my team and we usually skate about 10-14 in a small-medium-ish sized room.

This is what I've been using the past year.  First bag I've had thats big enough to fit my pads into as well.  Couldn't care less about the wheel argument as its way more convenient for me.  Although I did love that scene in Letterkenny this past season which is being filmed funny enough in the rink I grew up playing in Capreol, Ontario.  If they moved the camera to left you'd see old team photos from back in the 80s and I'm in one of those when I was in tykes.


This is the same bag I've been using for 3+ years. It has plenty room for all my gear, pads included. I've gotten used to it not having the U-shaped opening, but other than that I have zero complaints. Been very durable for me, too.
