Pros: Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Comments: This is a great bag. While not quite as roomy as the Reebok 10K, it still has plenty of room for all your gear. The skate pockets are especially nice - very roomy. There's easily extra room for jerseys, socks etc., just in the skate pockets alone. The straps have a wide range of adjustability, and you'll quickly figure out the right fit for carrying in comfort. The main 'grab' top handle is very sturdy and well-built. No worries about tearing or fraying. The telescoping handle is hidden by a zip pocket, but easily accessible too. Seems like a minor thing, but personally I'll always carry it like a backpack and will probably never pull it like luggage. So, I appreciate the sleek look that a hidden handle provides. Another great feature is the bag bottom - completely waterproof, so no worrying about wet locker room floors soaking through the bag or ruining the fabric. Inside the main opening, there's a vented pouch for wet clothing - very handy for post game transport. The skate pockets are also vented and the main compartment also has vent holes. Personally, I will still pull out my equipment to 'air out', but the venting allows it to stay stored in the bag, if you prefer.
Final thoughts: Bauer knows hockey because Bauer IS hockey. A lot of thought and great design effort went into this bag and it shows. I look forward to many seasons of use out of this bag. Very happy with this purchase, highly recommended.
