    Where is BAG802AI manufactured??? Surprise surprise, it is Made in China. Fake? I doubt it as in the original Yonex Japan website, this bag is clearly mentioned by Yonex JP it is manufactured in China.
    Conclusion ? Under YY Japan strict QC policy, China does able to manufacture super high quaility product for the Japanese market. (Just like Toyota, Honda cars manufactured outside Japan)
    Some JP bags are manufactured in China while some JP models are manufactuered in Japan. How they divide , i really don't know.
    yes, i understand regarding bags, heck they can make A, B or C grade categories with LVs, right? speaking of cars however, top model Lexus 460 i doubt will be produce in cn anytime soon (or soon enough). yeah, low end bimmers are produce in cn already.

    the point is, i trust the jp (even sp version...well, i got previous models that are made in cn...so far so good.) version bags that are cn makes shouldn't disappoint. the fact you pointed out bag802ai's odyssey for nearly 45 minutes under light rain w/o a droplet of water seepage is testament enough that they know their craft well.

    normally i'd go for blue or black but the white bag you have is like a bling-bling bag. girl magnet? i am not sure about that, eye candy perhaps but definitely it is S-L-I-C-K!

    MetalOrange

    p.s. my custom-built vantage racquet is an all white w matte finish! comes with black bag though, colour contrast i guess.

    p.s.2. i'll try to check it out if there's a jp make next time i'm in jp. but normally i am never picky w regards to bags. blame it on you tc ha ha ha, thank you very much, for showing that slick bag.

    Upon reaching, my Adidas windbreaker is completely soaked, so is my Nike Dry Fit Track Bottom...To my surprise, my new BAG802AI is only wet on the outside. When i unzip both comprtments, surprise surprise, there is not a single droplets of rain inside my beloved bag

    Conclusion: This JP BAG802AI is Water Proof!
    Personal Exp : under medium rain pour (totally uncovered by umbrella or anything) for 45 minutes continuously. Not a single water breakthorugh into the bag.
    I am really surprised, and well satisfied.

    Can not resist, but...

    Maybe get 2 of such bags, and use one as umberlla...

    Well, I don't think the word BAG802AI actually was used in my own thread heheh.

    Lets see, I think I got mine for around < $100 USD at the time of the exchange rate.

    After one year of use, some of the material is beginning to show a bit of fuzz but other than that, it's good.

    Just sharing, you just need to send them an enquiry and from there on communicate with him via MSN or QQ.

    Usually they will ship to oversea buyer but the buyer will bear the shipping cost and the transfer fee where applicable. GST u also need to take into account if exceed SGD400.

    There is some risk but if you could source for reputable seller then it should be fine. The package is sent by EMS with tracking number and handle by Speedpost in Singapore. You can trace ur package in EMS China website and once it arrive it Singapore, trace it in Speedpost website.

    FYI, Speedpost is suck, no advance notification will be given prior arrive at ur place. You need to wait at home till they are arrive at your door step.

    Hope this help you.

    Hi there,

    Thanks and glad you like tha bag. It is quite hard for you to buy from Taobao as you need to open a taobao account (free of charge) but normally they need a local Chinese bank account.
    The other method will be to bank remittance (from overseas). Basicallt taobao do not accept credit cards or paypal.
    As for shipment, louislkw has mentioned them clear enough above.
    For this particular shop (where i bought my bag) he is normally quite reluctant to ship overseas. But you can try.
    Another alternative will be to buy it from shuttle house, which are easier

    Good luck

    I don't know of a list, but tckang has generously shared his 'supplier from taobao. Shd be trustworthy as he knows the supplier personally.

    Shipping cost from China is a bit expensive than US. You can refer to this website for the shipping charge. First 0.5kg is RMB190 and subsequent 0.5kg increment is RMB45.
