backpack suggestions anyone??

Post by yorky55 » Tue May 31, 2011 4:49 pm

ok now decided i need a back pack to carry all my gear i want one thats light and strong, and around 2ft length capacity, as i dont have a motor anymore and i am going to have to "get on me bike" any ideas would be welcome, 20 to 30 quid bracket, over that i can't really afford; thanks in advance, yorky

I use my bike whenever possible and tried the XP backsack but it was far too flimsy, then started using my Babolat tennis backpack and then ended up looking at the fishing rods bags, still undecided but they are cheap and are long enough to take the machine stems and can be carried on the back. I tried lashing the machine coil/stem to the bike but it can be dodgy in traffic! Good luck, Liam B-)

A hockey stick bag works well lots of pockets

Got mine from SportsDirect mate, I have the Karrimore Orkney one which is great, but there is plenty of choice there.
