The best ice hockey equipment bag comes from Grit

If you’ve been to an ice hockey rink lately, odds are good you’ve seen a Grit HTSE Hockey Tower Bag.

You know the one. Well made and durable, rolling wheels, stick holders on the side and plenty of space for all the gear.

Much more than a regular hockey bag, the Grit Tower Bag is truly a locker room on the go.

It’s the best ice hockey bag on the market and it’s almost unfair to compare it to conventional hockey bags. What Grit has done has built a portable hockey locker that you can take anywhere.

The Grit hockey bag is at is best when it’s standing straight up – a break from tradition with normal bags. It essentially contains shelving inside that gives you space to put all your gear. It’s great for when you get to the ice, but it may be even better when you’re leaving the house and making sure you have everything with you. The top shelf contains compartments for your skates and helmet. The second level has plenty of space for your elbow pad and gloves, while your shin guards, shoulder pads and hockey pants can easily fit below. Everything is clearly in view to leave little doubt that you’ve got all the equipment you need for a game or practice. No more showing up with one skate or elbow pad because you assumed the other was stuffed beneath your pants. The simple organizational elements will make sure you’re prepared every time you leave the house.

Ventilation holes in the plastic and a mesh back keep your Grit bag from smelling like a locker room.

Another great feature of a Grit hockey bag is its air flow, essential for keeping your portable locker from smelling like, well, a locker. The reinforced plastic that makes up the back of the bag has holes punched in it and a mesh covering to promote air flow. It also features several removable mesh compartment and two mesh compartments on the side that are great for holding a pair of slides, socks or any other items that need to be aired out before or after play.

A zippered front pocket increases storage space and includes straps for two water bottles with enough room left for tape and other small personal items. Another extra feature is a carpeted pull out piece for standing on while you’re changing. It beats standing on a wet, slippery floor.

Two stick holders on the sides of the Grit hockey bag allow you to transport your main stick and a backup very easily. There’s even an attachable shoulder strap if you prefer to go old school and not take advantage of the wheels.

Available in a wide array of colors mirroring the schemes of the NHL’s top franchises, the Grit Hockey Tower Bag is a great choice for anyone looking to find a better way to get their gear to the ice. The bag comes in both a 33″ version and a 36″ size, with additional options for large goalie bags and medium goalie bags. There’s even a Grit Youth Hockey Tower Bag available.
