from Houston, TX United States
In my mind, there are two types of derby skaters: those who pack really light and those have a huge rolling duffel full of anything they or their teammates could possibly want plus extras. I'm definitely the former; a true minimalist carrying only what I absolutely need. If you're like me this is the PERFECT bag. My chunky 187 Pro knee pads, elbow pads, knee gaskets, wrist guards and helmet fit perfectly in the central compartment of the bag, and (if you don't mind a tight fit) you could still fit an extra set of wheels if you wanted to. My skates are secured in the side skate straps on the exterior. Additional pockets still have enough room to carry small stuff like my mouthguard box, skate tool, extra box of bearings, etc. The side pockets fit a slim water bottle perfectly. Even with all of this stuff packed into the bag, it's very comfortable to wear with all the weight distributed evenly. An extra bonus is I get to channel my inner AV Club nerd by fastening the chest strap.
