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

well I currently use a Yonex 724 and I love it.... carries everything for me inside the bag, shoes, clothes, racquets and etc.... I think it is a great investment, check it out....

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

How does 724 compare to 524? I like the look of 524 alot more....

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 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

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!!

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 =)

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..
