Having gone through 6 hockey bags from the big brands in 10 short years, I just about had it with low quality bags that costed too much. While most of these companies made great sticks, they really didn't focus too much on bags at all. I felt this was a great opportunity to contribute to the game I love, and took a stab and designing my very own bag.
I spoke to dozens of players and coaches to get their feedback on what they would want in a bag. They shared some great ideas, many of which were included in the the bag you see here today. The foot mat came about after observing many players who struggle with the wet locker room floor, and rolled up their dirty rug into the bag. The interior organizers were inspired by my friend's camera bag. Launch models included a cooler bag that hooks onto the wheeled bag's handle, inspired by a business traveler I saw walking about with his briefcase hooked onto his luggage.
When it came to durability, common complaints were failed zippers and tears, I addressed these issues by sourcing the best materials I could find, and ensuring stitching is top notch. The resulting bag is what you see here today.
I am thankful for this great game of hockey, and forall of you, who has afforded me the opportunity to leave my desk job and and turn a small hobby into something that can support my small family! I am proud of this bag, and I am proud to have contributed to the game in a small way, and will continue to do so!
Thanks for reading.
