    My buddy sent me these pics. He told me that they are coming out next week. He doesn't have any details since his friend got it as a gift. Anybody else have any info on them? Price, color ways, exact date of availability? The bag looks nice and well built.

    Tennis Warehouse peeps, do you know if you will carry them??? Take my money please!

    ServingAcesSince1995,

    Yes, we will be receiving that bag in the next couple weeks. It looks like we will be getting it in the color shown below, Black/Volt. The price is $150.

    Wow... I wish I hadn't seen this. I just bought a bag from TW a couple weeks ago.

    This one is so sick, how many rackets does it hold and is the compartment insulated?

    Maybe I'll just be ridiculous and buy it anyway.

    Yup, nice bag. Hopefully this signals Nike fully getting into the market, eventually with different styles and colors?

    While the bag looks real nice, I'm still more pleased with my TF bag than I would be with this NIke bag, at several dollars less. I'm confident that the construction on the TF is as good as one can find.

    Enjoy the bag, it does look sweet.

    $150 for a portable shelf... I don't know, kind of a hard sell for me.

    But I may get one when it's all said and done. I mean, bag designs kind of went to s*** lately. What, with Wilson hiding their accessory pockets INSIDE the main compartment. And my current Babolat Aero 12pack is just a giant bag with 5 big compartments, and things just slushes around inside.

    Very nice looking bag. It is a take off on TF's original Stand Bag, which is superb in both form, function and build quality.

    150 for a tennis bag? Too much. Stick and RF logo on the side and I'm sure some mugs would buy it

    Do a search for "Nike Tennis Bag" and went to Nike's page and looked up some details... Says it'll hold 12 rackets and "pockets" are insulated. One cool thing is that it can stand up vertically on it's own due to its design. But at $150? Hmm, that's a bit steep.

    I'm getting one, I'll let you know if it's worth $150.

    I've been jealous of my friend's babolat bag for a long time. He's got an insulated beverage area. When its 90/90 temp/humidity it can be a lifesaver.

    It's a start... Reasonably well thought out. But Nike is just sticking it to the Tennis players with the outrageous pricing. Look at their $150 Golf bag...

    Just a guess.........that quality will not be reflected by the price as is often the case with many Nike products. What can be seen of straps in the pic already appear to reflect that.

    I'd be interested to see one up close and personal.

    Previous generation's Babolat Aero 12 pack bag had a portable cooler big enough to fit four 24oz bottles. I've got one and it still works as of today.

    Also, those Prince Tour bags have a cooler in it too.

    Bought one. Sold my old bag and used a gift card. Should be here tomorrow or beginning of next week.

    Nike has their hooks in me. I have no shame.

    +1, I like my Nike stuff. But recently purchased the red Babolat bag, so I am sticking with that. Will have to see what everyone has in the way of feedback on this bag.

    First impressions:

    • I think describing it as a mobile locker is pretty accurate.
    • The top pocket seems to be designed for easy access to keys/wallet/phone (no digging in your bag)
    • Beverage pocket is good for 1 nalgene/32oz powerade bottle
    • Lining in the "locker pocket" can be used to separate dirty clothes
    Overall it's a very well designed bag.

    Keeping with the outdoor equipment theme, I use a Sea To Summit wet/dry sack inside my tennis bag to hold my beverages. Just freeze one of your water bottles and everything stays cool and dry.

    That is a joke! A big a** bag like that and you're telling me you can only fit one bottle in the cooler?!

    Look at what my 1st gen Babolat Aero Pro 12pack supplied me with:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's 3 24oz bottles (don't have my 4th bottle at the moment), along with 2 more bottled water.

    Yeah, way to charge people $150 for a shelf of a bag.

    Well, my puppy gave me the opportunity to buy this. But I got another Babolat Aero 6 pack. Ultimately, I did not need the 12 pack, wish they made it in a 6 pack.

    The puppy chewed through the strap on my 1 month old red Babolat Aero bag. Needless to say, it lost some functionality.

    LOL. I had my boxer puppy chew up the handle of a mint dunlop 200g pro. He chewed though the leather to the foam handle and everything. that one kind of ticked me off.

    D'oh!

    Hope you put your V9.5s somewhere higher.

    Well laid out bag. $150 is a little much for a bag. I'm sticking with my Head - it's still GOATing.

    Got the bag in today. Not that much bigger than the wilson tour 9 bag I used to have. I like that it stands upright and holds it shape very well. Going to try and have it as my only luggage for districts in a few weeks since I will be staying overnight. Going to pack it tonight and put all my gear in it to see.

    the beverage section isn't as big as I had hoped. However, my previous bag didn't even have an insulated compartment for my beverages (just rackets)

    Pretty happy with the purchase so far. Will come back after some wear to see how it holds up.

    $150 for a bag that can only hold one 32oz bottle in the insulated compartment is sad.

    I got this bag earlier this week and here are my initial thoughts:

    It seems to be well-made, but its impossible to judge durability without seeing how well it lasts over time and use.
    I had been interested in the Standbag, but didn't get it because it had no thermal protection, which this does. :)

    Pros:
    -The layout makes it easy to organize your clothes in the locker, your small items in the top pocket, etc.
    -Seems well-made
    -The backpack straps are well padded and comfortable

    Cons
    -The biggest con for me is the small size of the water bottle pocket. They really should have made it much bigger!
    -A minor point is the colorway. It looks too similar to the Babolat Aero.

    I've been very happy with the bag. It's well made, stands upright and definitely an upgrade from my Head Monster Combi bag. I like the simple graphics. I use Babolat rackets but I hate the Babolat bags. The graphics are all over the place. This one is just plain good looking.

    The only thing I'm not happy about is there's only one colorway. Three of us in my league team have one. Needless to say we all get confused which bag belongs to who. The insulated drink pouch can carry my 40 oz Lifeline7502 water bottle.

    As far as the price? Well, a lot of people buy $200 rackets just because it is endorsed by their favorite player where a $90 racket will suit their game better. Same with tennis clothes, you can buy "dri-fit" shirts and shorts at Walmart for $10. I don't see anyone complaining about the cost of tennis clothes.

    Anyways, if you like nice things, you can't go wrong with this one.

    1 week mark

    So an update, after about a week of owning/using this bag

    Gets tons of compliments, everybody eyeballs this bag. Probably because there are not a lot of upright stand bags and because the design is so "clean"

    The beverage area started to sweat after a few hours. I filled nalgene with ice and you could feel the sweat from the outside. Ice hadn't melted much though so it still worked.

    Main compartment also keeps beverages very cold.

    Top pouch is great for keys/wallet/phone and can also store at least one featherlight hat.

    Overall, the bag has lived up to my [high] expectations.

    Keep the reviews coming guys - glad to hear that many of you are happy with the Court Tech 1. Those that have the bag can you post some pictures of how you are using it?

    Thanks!

    I got mine, and I would echoed what everybody says...great quality bag.

    My only issue is that it feels heavy and big when carrying as backpack.

    I just put inside my 3 100T ESP raquects and a couple of tennis balls and feels heavy, so it feels a little heavy.

    But nothing to worry about...its just a great bag...

    I´m those crazy guys that likes to have match logos, if I´m using Prince raquects I want a prince bag and so on......but I do not want to keep doing that, is very expensive, so I want a "neutral" bag when I change raquects, and this is the answer to that.
