    the Victor BR390 has 3 colors:

    BR390-F - blue
    BR390-E - yellow
    BR390-D - red

    to my eyes, the F/blue is the best looking followed closely by the E/red. i am not into the yellow color, esp when accented with black. i chose the blue for two reasons. i already have a red themed bag, and also the gold accent of the red bag shows up too much.

    yes. badminton bag, like women's handbags, is as much about look as it is about functionality. suck it up.

    ok. so look aside, the BR390 is a 3 compartment bag of medium large size. it is larger than the Li-Ning AJBE032 but not as large as the Yonex 7829 . despite that, i think i can comfortably fit at least 21-24 rackets solely packing in just racket alone. it will be sufficient for everyone except the ones who see the need to bring their whole living room along to the gym every time.

    the BR390 is a triple strap bag. on the underside are 2 backpack style straps which are super comfortable as the backside is flat and fits to the flat human back really well. being close together also means that the straps won't slip off the shoulders. for those who prefer a more traditional strap the 3rd strap runs across the middle of the top side allowing the BR390 to be carried in the more traditional one shoulder way.

    a single handle at the top of the bag, centered in the middle of the bag means that it can be hand carried. another single handle at the end of the bag allowed it to be drag out of the back of the car or from the passenger seat.

    the build quality of the bag is superb. there are many places that show exquisite attention to detail. the zippers are molded metal which are eye shaped with victor logo on it. the feel of those are just quality. the thermal padding is very thick which means it will be great for cold weather users. each compartment is marked with its intended use. the side compartment for racket, the middle compartment for clothing, and the other side compartment for shoes. which is kinda strange as there is a dedicated shoe compartment as well. i do prefer the end loaded shoes compartment of the Li-Ning bag as that gives a wider opening.

    on one end there is a generous sized accessory compartment with extra internal compartments. the internal compartments are large enough to hold a wallet as well as a smartphone. a zippered mesh compartments will hold coins and other small items without then going all of the bag. a nice touch there.

    another nice feature is the curved opening of the out main compartments, the curve forms a flap which allows for a wide opening for the handle to exit.

    as mentioned, this is a medium large bag that is probably slightly less spacious than the largest of Yonex 3 compartment bags. i had reservation on the size as i usually prefer the largest of bags. but in the end, i was drawn in by the nice material, build quality and design. time will tell if i will be able to bear with this short comings.

    i only acquired it yesterday, straight from the US distributor racketsupply.com . when i manage to spend more time with it in the courts, i will post more reviews.

    Great pics and review! Looking at Racket Supply's website I agree that the 390F looks the best by far. I especially love the purple interior and the metal zippers with rings to lock the compartments. My BR309 has the same lock rings but the zips are made of plastic, not as nice as these. The bag doesn't look that thick from the front, I guess it just packs its weight in well. Congrats on the new bag, sounds like a competition is brewing between you and your wife to see who can have the most bags.

    here we go. i managed with stuff 30 rackets in there, starting to get pretty tight but can probably fit a couple more but i stopped at 30. this give it around the same storage capacity as my old Yonex 7829.

    Kwun, when you go out to play do you place your rackets in the bag with either those single-racket covers or cloth sleeves, or do you just put them in the bag like this? I'm worried that they'll cause paint chips or other damage when I put my rackets in without any sort of protection, I hate the clanging noise when they rattle around or when something presses against the bag..

    good question but i am afraid i don't have the answer...

    hopefully not purple as purple + red definitely don't work.

    Yes I believe they are the same bag - for some reason the european market do not adopt the same codes as in Asia - these bags are nice - I have one in stock and trying hard not to buy it for myself.

    Tis juz arrived @ M'sia market and manage to secure the blue one.
    As reviewed by Kwun ... the quality, finishing and attention to detail is superb.
    Love the cushioned strapes and overall build quality of the bag.
    The compartments do seem to be a bit narrow, pretty cramp if too many rackets chucked in
    Still initial impression is ... LOVING IT !!!
