    Wanted a backpack to hold all my gear and bought this one as it looked okay and was getting fed up of carrying a 6 racquet tennis holdall everytime I went the courts.

    Pros:
    • its a backpack!
    • 2 large compartments (racquet can go in either or both)
    • internal zipped compartment for wet gear
    • pretty big, can hold shoes, cans of balls, clothing, etc
    Cons:
    • Annoyingly it has no internal smaller zippped compartment for keys/phone/money etc
    • Pouches on side of bag supposedly for water bottles is way too small - it can only hold something the size of a glass coke bottle.
    Overall, it was 'okay' but I was underwhelmed. The most annoying thing is the lack of internal zipped storage for 'valuable' items.

    Anyone know of a backpack with all the above features PLUS a zipped 'valuable' items compartment?

    I basically agree with your review 100%. The Dunlop backpack is very bare bones, and is suitable primarily for beginners who carry one racquet and little else.

    If you want a nicer backpack, take a look at the prince racq pack backpack. Lots of tennis specific features. It can carry two racquets comfortably, has a shoe pocket, pockets for a can of balls, another for a large water bottle, and in general is very well organized.

    The main limitation for me is that most backpacks are designed to carry a max of 2 racquets.

    You may want to take a look at the Wilson eco or ksix bags (non backpack). They are designed to be significantly lighter than average.
