    Hiya,

    I'm lookin to sexy up a bit and get a backpack style bag instead of a duffle type. I rather pack it on my back than lug it on one shoulder.

    I was thinking the Yonex 8112 style, but has anyone tried this bag before? Comments?

    I need to fit 2 racquets, shoes, 3 or 4 tubes of feathers, a T-shirt and shorts. (and maybe the odd left over candy bar).

    Does this have enough room for that? I'm dimension impaired so

    Thanks for your help!!!

    That pic shows 2 racket handles sticking out the corner. Compare a tennis racket with a shuttle tube to get an idea of size.

    There may be just about enough space for your 4 tubes and rackets and small amount of clothes when well packed and dry.

    Shoes maybe not - that bag looks a bit flat.

    In the past when I tried backpacks with racket handles sticking out like that after walking some while the rackets would start to lean over and make it a bit awkward. It needs a strap or something in the bag to hold them vertical, not just the zipper.

    I use an rsl explorer 1 bag, If you dont need to have a yy bag its a good choice.

    Thanks Johnv.

    Poo. I kinda like the square look. Good suggestion on the RSL E1. After poking around I think i'm now on the hunt for the E1.1 :)

    Thanks again for the help
