Bauer Premium Goalie Wheel Bags 42"
Comments: I got this bag over a year ago, I'm 53, short fat and play 2-3 times per week. The
excellent: the retractable handle. Every other wheeled bag uses drag straps and the bag
uncomfortable hits the back of my legs. The bag also fits into the truck of my Honda Civic
though if I dont take care the bag will get stuck on the truck lip. Even with a lot of use, the
zippers (except one, discussed below), seams, handles and corners are in very good shape,
way outlasting my last Brian's bag that didn't last six months with less use.
The not so excellent: one of the pull tags for the zippers on the side pouches somehow
spread itself enough so that it came off, and that pocket has only one zipper. Unless I take
care how I pack after a game, the bag seems to be fussy on how it distributes the weight and
the bag will be unsteady even with three wheels.
I've never used the pad-carry system, but I know one goalie who tried it and didn't like it, it
threw off the center of gravity too much, and another who was able to remove the side
pocket dividers (they're apparently attached with velcro, I keep them in and they've never
come undone) and can fit his pads into the bag. I can't fit my 32' Browns in.
Under the top cover is a zippered compartment to keep sweaty stuff, but you can roll it back
(there are velcro closures to keep the cover rolled back) to improve the ventilation in the bag,
which I do. There are no interior security pockets for keys and wallets and such, but I've
never had a problem.
All in all, a solid 4-1/2 star bag. The fussiness with how it's pack cost the half-a star.

Comments: i just recieved this today for my son and i'm glad i got the 42"-his xl int to small sr size gear fit just fine with a little room left as his gear grows.i don't see the bad rap with the top heaviness/unstabilty this bag has with the pads strapped on top. as long as you take a moment to pack things evenly you're fine,and even my 13 yr old son figured that out. materials seem heavy duty the only issue i see is the plastic frame/strips on the bottom stop a few inches before the wheels start leaving that area a little weak.but this is the first day with the bag so i can't report on long term effects.overall seems well built and my son loves it.

Comments: This bag is too long for wheels and bends just above them after the first use. It also becomes very lopsided and tips side to side. If you consider this bag you should be a very large goalie who will have gear that totally fills the bags or go to the smaller version maybe. Material and zippers hold up fine. I'm very disappointed in spending so much for this bag.
