    Default Looking for a badminton bag...

    Lately I have been haging around with 3 plastic bag, one containing my bridies, the other my cloth and the third one my shoes :S And I was also holding my racket over my shoulder...
    After a year, I have decided to buy a badminton bag and I need your help. There are so many badminton bag and I dont know which one to pick. It is simple I need a bad that will be able to contain about 2-3 rackets, 1 pair of shoes, clothing (short,shirts...) and finally tubes of birdies. The thing is that I was going to buy it online:

    but I am afraid to end up with either a super large bag, which will make me look like a professionnal, which I am not. Or a small and lame bag wich will break my racket.

    So far I was thinking to buy either this one

    or this one

    personally im using the 2420 bag, only cuz the 2424 was out of stock. i think the 2424 is better than 2420 because it has 2 straps, so you can carry it around easier. the 2420 only has 1 strap, so less options.
    otherwise the 724 is also another great bag. you probably wont need a 3 compartment bag, but a 1 compartment bag wont fit ur shoes, rackets, AND birdies. 2 compartments is just right

    I just realize I will have to put 3 nets in this bag, do you think 724 is good for that??

    The bag should be large enough to carry 3 nets if you roll them up neatly and not just try and stuff them in the bag.

    i'm not sure how long/thick your nets are. some nets might be able to. keep in mind that he's putting his shoes and shuttlecocks in the bag too. maybe try it out first.. borrow a friend's bag or something. i'm guessing it will be a slightly tight fit unless the nets are huge or something

    according to the yonex catalogue, they are the same size. i see that one end of the 524 is skinnier than the 724 though, and the 724 is more "rectangular"
    another thing is the 724 has 2 carry straps, whereas the 524 has only one. sometimes that can make a difference... personally i would choose the 724 cuz of the extra strap and bigger model number but thats just me

    The 2 straps allows you to wear it as a backpack. It's stylish so go with the 724

    The reason why I choose 524 over 724 is because of the shape. 724 look so... blah, in my opinion because of the 'rectangular' shape... while 524 has a unique shape to it =)


    One strap or two, I'm still gonna only be using one arm to carry it...

    I guess I'll be looking at the 524 then

    if you're going to be putting nets in the bag, then don't worry about the bag being too large, giving the impression that you're pro or something.

    forget what people think and do what you think is right.

    a bag can't be TOO large. and obviously even more so when you have to carry three nets in addition to your own playing gear!!

    sorry for the late reply, i think the 724 is quite universal... and I like the fact that it has 2 straps... cause my old Fleet bag broke right at the belt area... so I switched over to a 2 strap Yonex 724 and I think it is great... and if you are planning to put nets, shoes, racquets and etc... go for the extra mile...

    I like the 724. I have it in Navy and it carries everything I ask of it.

    With that being said, its not perfect. My old Yonex bag had a dedicated pouch on one side specifically for shoes. The 724s shoe compartment is inline with one of the 2 large compartments, essentially robbing you of usable room. I use that compartment for my clothes. Its fine when Im coming from the house and dont have to put my streetclothes in it, but its a tighter fit when im coming from work.

    With that being said, I still bought the 724. The dual strap is nice, again, its not perfect but anything bigger would indeed look like a sack.

    If any Yonex reps are reading this, put an external shoe compartment on the 724 and you will have the perfect design =)

    i believe that the "padding" on the strap is immobile, like the ones on 2424 and 2420. those straps are at the top, so you'll be carrying your bag like a backpack with 1 or 2 stripes. i thought it made no difference initially, but the more i think about it now the more i regret not waiting for the 2424 and getting a 2420. cuz the way 1 strap carrying works.. feels kind of awkward.

    edit: the 2420 has an "inward" shoe compartment as stanstan described, but i never use it. partly because i have a plastic bag containing my shoes. what's the shoe compartment for though? is it just to prevent your dirty shoes from dirtying everything else? i dont use it because its a pain opening so many zippers maybe i'm just lazy

    Oh, and while Im at it, another feature I would like is one from one of my older racket bags. It has a detachable pouch on the side where I can put my valuables so I can store them somewhere safe or take with me if I have to leave my racket bag somewhere.

    Sorry for not being clear, I meant ....

    If I were to get a badminton bag, I'd only need one strap for carrying it like a backpack with one arm..
