    I'm trying to decide on which bag to purchase and was wondering if people who have these bags could give insight on the pros and cons of the bags. As I see it, they are pretty similar, but the tecnifibre bag does not have the thermal lining which I am not sure will be a huge issue since I live in Orange County California. Anyways if anyone has used these bags and could give me some advice, I would appreciate it greatly. If anyone had a suggestion they think may be better just let me know as well.

    I am looking for a 6-12 pack because I store between 4-6 racquets in my bag for different people I play with. In addition I would love room for some clothes and my shoes without having to cram everything in a tight fit. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again in advance.

    I just bought the adidas barricade iii tour bag.

    Only one of the side pockets is thermal lined, and you can fit 3 racquets in it. The shoe pocket is roomy, fits my prince t22's with room to spare. the middle pocket is half a can of tennis balls wide, so plenty of room there to shove clothes, extra balls, cans of tennis balls, water bottles, food, etc. Then the other side pocket is the same size, so 3 racquets, but no thermal lining.

    build quality is pretty high. zippers are metal. The actual zipper teeth are attached to meshy like fabric (the yellow part) so sometimes its hard to pull because it gets stuck on a bend. also, shoulder strap is attached with plastic, but fairly thick plastic. we'll see how that lasts. top handle is thick with lots of padding. backpack straps are actually pretty thin, have only a little padding, and seem kind of low quality. think a step above jansport backpack straps. wearing it is still fairly comfortable, the straps were placed in a good spot.

    all in all, I think it was worth $80.

    Tecnifibre 9 pack

    I have both the tecnifibre 9 pack and the black back pack and like them both.Previously I had a Prince 6 pack bag(green one) it was ok but The tecnifibre bag is laid out much better.I like the handle better and the compartments are just set up much better and seem to have more room then the Prince I was using.I feel it also looks better.I don't feel you would go wrong with that bag.

    Just got a new Technifibre Monster ATP (15) in the mail today.

    It looks to be quite nice, smooth zippers, seems mostly well thought out.

    I couldn't see toting 15 sticks in it, but it'll be great for 4 or so and gear.
