    I'm thinking about getting one of these bags since they both seem like a good deal at $35. The Volkl looks like it has more pockets and what not which I like but the racket compartments arent insulated and I don't really like the yellow color. The Dunlop looks better because it's blue and is insulated but it doesn't seem to have very many pockets, just the racket compartments. Neither would match my rackets but that's not really a big issue, I just want the better bag. Does anybody have opinions on these 2 bags?

    The volkl bag looks like a terrific value. It doesn't look like it's going to hold it's shape very well, but it is very roomy.

    The dunlop has the insulation for the rackets you are looking for however, so that's a factor.

    I have the Volkl mega bag in all black. Generally a big back, however there is only 1 small accessory compartments on the side. Then its just one racket pocket then one huge compartment. Backpack straps are ok.

    It says that there is an insulated water bottle compartment. How is that?

    I currently use a TW 9 pack bag, the old version. As far as size and compartments, it is PERFECT. 3 racket compartment. 2 side compartments for accessories (one on each side). And then a little zippered compartment which is perfect for wallet and celly. However, the actually quality of the bag is beyond pathetic. It has ripped on the inside and where the pick up straps are on top, which I quit using so I don't know how it even ripped. I haven't really used it that much and I never carry that much in it. Also, its not insulated. So that is why I want a higher quality bag but nothing that will break the bank and those are the 2 best options on TW.

    Since you want insulated racket compartments, Dunlop would be the way to go.

    If you want all the features you wanted/listed, be prepared to spend $90-$100 for a pro level bag.

    I didn't say that I wanted all the features that I listed, but that I want the better bag out of the two.

    I have a black Volkl 9 pack bag. I'd say they hold their shape on an "average" level. Not as good as some not as bad as some. They also do NOT have thermal protection. It has enough room to fit 5 racquets very snug on each side. I don't bother worrying about which side I should put my racquets in & which side should have my gear. Volkl bags aren't as roomy as some companies, but again, are roomier than others. I throw my accessories in 1 side & also in the reverse side's 'shoe pocket.' The accessories pocket is so small, aside from a wallet & phone combined you can't fit much else of substance.
