    For price the Wilson bags are better than the Yonex counterparts, bigger and better organised.

    I think the shop is called Centralsports.co.uk

    It can be found in the thread on online shops in the UK in the Market Place forum

    I can vouch for the Wilson bags.
    I use a Wilson tennis racquet bag which must be 8 years old now.
    I overstuff it most of the time, cramming up to 8 racquets + a 12 shuttle tube in one side and shoes, clothes, water, other rubbish in the other side. It still looks like new.

    I've never had a badminton specific bag.

    I moved up to the 3 section Wilson bag a short time before I got my Yonex 2224, the good thing about the Wilson is that you have a section for shoes and clothes, a section for rackets and one for your liquids.

    It may seam trivial but there is always something about having your own liquid section in a bag so your clothes remain dry and your rackets are not comprimised if the bottle should leak

    when i look for a badminton bag, i look for the following

    delicated racquet section
    section of shoes
    separate section for wet cloths

    i found the wilson pretty good too, however, they are a bit too big for my daily use

    Toaster, I have been able to get three seperate Wilson bags:

    i One section, one main section with no shoe storage (£25)
    ii Two section, one main for rackets, and the other split for clothes and shoes (£30)
    iii Three section, two main sections and the third split for clothes and shoes (£35)

    The first two only have a single shoulder strap and the big one has a shoulder strap and two on hte back so you can carry it like a rucksack, you need this because when the biggest one is full it is very heavy. But the big one was the best purchase bag wise I have ever made.
