    Current hockey bags suck!  Let me know if you find a good one.  I'm currently on the prowl so I will let you know if I find one.  My friend has a Labatt Blue bag that has a beer cooler compartment and it's awesome, but I don't think it's for regular sale.



    Dang vendor reps get the best toys first and way before the cool product hits retail.

    Anyone use one of these:

    http://www.gritinc.net/canada/hockey/ht1.html

    I'm leaning toward one in Bruins gold or a red/black lumberjack combo that's not shown on the the site.  Kinda pricey, but it's got great storage room, dividers and a front beverages holder.  I like the idea of just opening it up and letting the gear air out and not having to empty and reload every time I get home/leave.

    I tried that idea on letting stuff air out in the bag with an Easton bag that unzipped so that it was all mesh  - it didn't work.

    Check where it's manufactured, if it's made in China, it's junk.

    And it's worth repeating - the JRZ bag I've just bought is the most substantial bag I've ever picked up.  Everything in it and about it is at least twice as thick, at least twice as strong as any of the other bags I've seen.

    Did the Easton bag have shelving like the Hockey Tower? I think that could really help drying in-bag.  I think of it like having shelving in a dedicated team room.

    Maybe a little late, but a colleague just mentioned this company to me that he's happy with.

    http://shops.firstarsports.com/category-s/128.htm

    They're out here in Surrey, BC and their stuff is all Canadian made. Their client list is a pretty good selection of NHLers. (Reimer, Kesler etc.)

    No, no shelving.

    They look similar to the JRZ bags, same idea, canvas, 1 zipper.

    Stop playing hockey and play bowling the little bags to carry the balls last longer...

    To follow up on this, the JRZ bag is still in perfect condition after nearly 2 years.

    Thanks for the update BadHab. I have been losing sleep since 2012, wondering how the new bag was working out. I just didn't know how to ask

    You should start a hockey equipment thread over at bruinsnation.proboards.com.  I'll probably need a new bag in the fall and I probably won't be able to find this thread here because it will be buried in garbage.

    Hey how about this? 

    Deep net search. ..you'd be surprised what you can find

    Going to sports stores and  asking a qualified rep...

    Ask ur buddies that play hockey

    If it all this fails... buy one like bhabs....no thread required 



    1.  I'd rather talk to somebody who actually used one rather than do an internet search.  BadHab says he's hard on his hockey bags and has found one that lasts.  I think I'd buy one.

    2.  Going in a sports store and asking for help is useless, well in Moncton anyway.  There are basically two or three (if you count Sportcheck) sport stores and they wouldn't have a clue what bags last longer.

    3.  None of my buddies who I play hockey with are as hard on their hockey bags as much as I am.  I don't know why, but that's the way it is.  My team bought all the same bags two years ago. Some look like new.  Mine is torn up in a few spots and one of the zippers is gone.

    4.  I might want to buy one like BadHab's.  But I'm not going to buy one now.  In the fall when I'll want one.  This thread will be buried behind hundreds of useless threads.  The other forum has categories, so it will be easier to find because it won't be in the Bruins category where most threads are.

    There's plenty of hockey talk too.  The Kemppainen thread, for example, has nineteen posts there.  The one here has four posts.

    A "best recipe" thread could be interesting though.
