    anyone have any comparisons to the TF monster bag? these seem to be the two highest quality bags out at the moment.

    wondering if I should wait for different colorways...

    If they do a 6 pack, I might have to pull the trigger.

    It really feels big, but it does not have a lot of room, but as of right know its great for my needs.

    Great quality, I used to have the TF Monsterbag, wilson BLX black,the new Prince 12 green...and this is better that of all of them.

    My only concern is the size and I would probably if this had more pockets...

    I rec'd my bag last week, so far it's a keeper.

    To compare, I've been using a Wilson Tour 9 pack with the thermoguard pocket for a couple years and the zipper on one of the accessory pockets hasn't worked in a while.

    I typically carry 2-3 sticks with a ton of extra clothes, etc., so I feel as though I'm always digging and looking in my current bag.

    A friend had mentioned that he didn't like the looks of it and thought it was a bit big and bulky, but it doesn't see as if it is larger than the Wilson 9 pack.

    First impressions. . .

    Love the top accessory pocket . . it's there, right in front of you, knee height and super convenient.

    Thermal type pocket, plenty big enough for me and will work well.

    Insulated "water bottle" pouch. . . would have liked to see this a bit larger or deeper, but not the end of the world, bc I usually have a cooler for tourneys nevertheless.

    Compared to the other bag, which had 1 main "other" large zippered section, this one is essentially similar type space, divided in two. . .you still the large "other racquet" compartment which has been my "catch-all" pocket" with the Wilson. With the Nike, it's a small locker section and then a large side pocket. Although it's not a much room as the 15 packs, I think it's as much as the 9-12 packs. I like the "locker" part, but wish it was a little wider.

    Overall. . it's stands up nicely and think it will work well.

    I also appreciated the earlier comment regarding the "neutral" bag. . .I recently switched racquet brands and have been looking to get a new bag that "matched" and almost didn't get the Nike bag bc I wanted a matching set, but that's a good outlook . .. to keep a neutral bag so you can use any racquet brand.

    The nike tennis graphic on the front of that is nice!

    I love the fact that the bag stands on its own and the compartment on top is great. Rode my bike in to work today because I plan on going to practice after and it did not hinder me at all.

    I'll hold out for another color, but no question this is a better bag than my current Wilson Tour Red. I'm just not a fan of the volt accents, I'd want something more neutral/less trendy/more classic.

    Haha we are both in the same predicament. Ugly color way but great functionality wise.

    after handling the technifiber bag I can truthfully say its the best quality and strongest bag I have ever seen. everything else feels kind of flimsy. i have had a lot of bags through the years (wilson, babolat, prince, head, fischer etc. ) and have never seen anything on the tennis market as good as the technifiber bags. the only thing that I have with that kind of durability are banker bags for carrying money in or very high grade firearms cases. I am probably going to buy the whole technifiber series and use them for range bags and travel luggage.

    I like the blue one because it has a Nike logo on a tennis court. Pretty neat.

    And just like that.

    Been only a month. Sucks. Returning to Nike. Debating on getting another one, hoping it is an anomaly.

    A bit late to the party, looked it up on Nike UK (since I'm in UK) and I was surprised - the bag is only £75 whereas it is 150$ in US. I expected it to be the usual 150$=£150 conversion.

    So, I'm selling my Wilson Tour 12 bag and getting this one for sure. I hate that I have to dig trough that massive compartment and never find stuff.

    Tbf I'm using the court tech back pack... into the fourth week now and it's holding up well, the racket compartment is a bit of a tight fit though so I hope it stands up and doesn't rip like this, which it def shouldn't do after such a short period of time. Don't know how hard The Isomotion31 is rocking his bag but it shouldn't be ripping so soon.

    That's probably an anomaly. I carry over 1 gallon of water to the courts and that kinda stuff doesn't happen to me.

    I'd say the most annoying part is accidentally stepping on the strap adjustment piece when picking it up and haing the strap tighten super hard...

    If you chat with Nike customer rep and send them a picture they may just refund you, happened with a friend and his pair of air max 360's that he blew out.

    I have been rocking it pretty well. However, the seam is on the top compartment which is weird. Waiting to hear back from nike now. Not too sure if I am going to get another one yet. Found my old nike duffle that is built like a tank. But I am in love with backpack style straps for carry.

    Call Nike Support and they will take care of you. We tested dozens of these bags without any issues like this.

    ^ Thanks!

    I received an e-mail from them and am getting a voucher for the full price of the bag.

    Still not sure if I am going to get another one....OR Lunar Ballistecs. lol!

    Or wait until Nike does their additional clearance sale and just go ape.

    Just ordered the bag. $150 is steep, but I've had a $130 voucher for a while. Will give feedback ASAP.

    The bag is very nice. :)
    The water bottle pocket is too small. It holds one bottle. Who takes one bottle to play tennis? :(
    My son initially complained the backpack straps hurt. But he had them too tight and they were riding on his traps. Once lossened a bit they're fine.
    The standup feature is great. With the 'locker' pocket my son is taking way too much stuff with him. We'll work on that.

    As my son plays with a copoly/SG hybrid, so we're not too worried about racquet temp and he's putting his racquets in the non-insulated racquet pocket. He's been putting some drinks in the insulated racquet pocket. I have this on order (http://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00IZCWS3W/ref=pe_385040_30332200_TE_item) to put inside that pocket to keep any moisture in and keep drinks cool.

    Worth $150? I would've never considered it if I didn't have that voucher to use. I suppose if you compare it to MSRP on shoes, it's not bad. Everything is too expensive. :oops:

    I'll get some photos soon.

    I agree, everything IS too expensive!

    I've enjoyed this bag so far, but I'm really curious about how durable it will turn out to be.

    for those who have this bag, does having a cold drink in the insulated compartment affect the temperature of the rackets/strings?

    also, how has it been keeping shape over time?

    The beverage compartment is quite thick with padding so I haven't experienced any issues with moisture getting out of the pocket and into the main racquet compartment.

    The bag holds it's shape fine - the key is to not put much weight onto the middle shelf and to use the base of the bag and spread your contents across the three compartments.

    Hope that helps! :)
