    Don't let these guys talk you out of a sensible idea. There is simply no good reason NOT to have a bag with wheels. Just because it is not an absolute necessity, doesn't mean you shouldn't get one. A backpack isn't an absolute necessity either, you could carry all your crap in a paper bag, but not quite as convenient, is it? I never quite understand why some people feel that making their life more difficult than necessary is a badge of honor. Just see if you can get one with wheels and a strap so you can carry it when necessary - best of both worlds. Also, if you ever decide to travel to a tournament, a wheeled bag is a virtual necessity.

    Even if it is true that wheeled bags don't last as long (I have not noticed this to be the case), I'm willing to invest $60 every 2-3 years in exchange for a drastic improvement in convenience. Hockey is an expensive sport, $20-$30 a year is peanuts.

    EDIT: As for the Shock Doctor bag, the thing is HUGE, expensive and I have no idea why you would need it in California. Just take your stuff out after every skate, in this climate it dries in no time at all. If all you had was a dank basement in Wisconsin somewhere, yes, it might be a good idea.

    So true. Seems like 20-30 bucks on any piece of gear gets you quite an upgrade. One with wheels and a strap would be pretty handy.

    The CCM vector 3-wheel bag on hockeymonkey.com looks pretty sweet. Only $60 and looks pretty sturdy. 3 wheels must help a bit durability wise. It's only a 36", but im sure that'd be fine.

I still live with my folks so i dont exactly have an abundance of space to just have stuff scattered about. I even keep my skates in their boxes while theyre in my room just to keep the clutter down. The big bag with the fan would be great (if it actually works) cus i can just roll it into my room, plug it in, and leave it till i use it next time (besides things i need to wash and etc).

    Sure is a jump in price though... it's a tough call....
    The bag costs about $50-$60 now. And when I said, "when you get home, just open the bag", I meant do that inside your house not still in the bed of the truck.

    For example, I roll my bag to my truck. I lift it up (pretty heavy for a equipment bag, I'll give you that) and put it in the bed. Get to the rink and pull it out. After I'm done, I put the equipment in the recommended manner, roll it to truck bed again and take it home. Once home, I take it to the garage, pull my gloves, leg pads, shoulder pads, jock out and air them. I leave the bag open for the rest of the stuff. In heavy skate sessions (tournaments, etc)... I'll power the air dry blower which will dry the inlining of my skates and dry the rest of the stuff inside through the ventilation holes.

    That's about it. I recommend it if you don't mind the weight and size of the bag. I personally dislike using backpacks as I never found one as effective as airing my stuff out as much as my bag. I'm telling you, if you have problems with stinky equipment, my bag will solve your problems.

    IF you're nearby, stop by the game Saturday night. I'll be playing. I can show you in person how everything works, and you can get a visual of it. And for the folks that make fun, well I got razzed a bit when I first bought it but not anymore. My teammates appreciate the fact that my gear & jerseys don't smell like *******.

    As long as it's got wheels weight doesn't bother me, i lift 90lb cement bags most of my work day so im not a weakling. Justifying the cost of the blower and blower bag is my biggest concern, and it better work well and last a good long time too at that price.

    You don't need the blower since you're just starting out. I've played in a couple of tournaments the past few months and at the end, my skates are pretty well soaked. So, I need it. So, all you'd pay for the bag is about $50-$60. Like I said, if you don't mind the size and the weight, it's awesome and keeps your **** from stinking it up.

    I have never, ever, ever, ever used Febreeze or any of that stuff. I used to wash my stuff ALL the time to avoid the smell but my gloves and helmet still stunk. Then, when I got this bag, none of my stuff smells and I only wash when I start seeing dirt. So I don't NEED to apply anything to the bag except for the occasional wash (which I've done twice in 2 years).
