Sports shoulder bags are universal and can be used for any type of sport. Their ingenious system of pockets and compartments will hold sports equipment of all different sizes. The small pockets can be used to store small pieces of equipment, such as mouth and ear guards. The large pocket can comfortably hold a head guard, boots, kimono and other equipment. Men’s and women’s sports shoulder bags are made from high-quality materials and are very durable. Some bags have back straps, so they can also be worn as a backpack.
Choose your sports shoulder bag according to the sport you plan to do. For combat sports, which require a lot of small equipment, choose a bag with smaller pockets. These can hold your mouth guards, tape or equipment for treating injuries. A gym bag, on the other hand, might have just one large pocket, to hold your sports attire, sneakers and towel. Before buying your bag, spread your sports equipment out on the ground and think of the things you most often have to search for in the bottom of your current backpack.
Large sports bags generally have a mesh pocket, which is great for storing wet protectors. They are well ventilated so protectors dry naturally in these pockets. If you plan to carry heavier loads, pay particular attention to how the straps fasten; metal karabiners can withstand far greater load than plastic ones.
All you need for basic training in the gym is a smaller S or M sized bag. If you’re planning to go into the ring and need a lot of protectors, you’re better off choosing an L bag. Every manufacturer uses a slightly different system for sizes, which are stated for each particular product. The table below shows the approximate sizes of sports shoulder bags, although these may differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. You should therefore always check the size stated for a particular shoulder bag.
