    Hi TW,

    I have a few questions on the Wilson Super Tour 3 InfraRED 15 Pack Bag... https://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Wilson_Super_Tour_InfraRED_Bags/descpageBGWILSON-WSTIR12.html

    1) Is the bag that the Wilson touring pros will be using?
    2) Does it have a somewhat rigid outer construction as many of the previous Wilson Tour Bags have?
    3) Does the zipper hardhard, as opposed to the zipper pull itself, look like it would be able to support a luggage lock?

    Thanks for your time and insight!

    Best,
    John

    Hi John,

    I will try my best to answer your questions -- I'm not 100% sure if the Wilson players will be carrying this bag, I would assume so, yes.

    It does not really have a rigid outer construction. The material holds shape well, but it doesn't have that "molded" shape or "shell" construction like other bags. It is a matte-coated PU material.

    I'm not sure what your 3rd question means exactly. I'm not sure it would be able to support a luggage lock.

    Hope that helps though -- Hoping to film a product video on it next week!

    Michelle, TW

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for your reply, I much appreciate it! I think I’ll likely be giving this bag a try.

    As for the zipper, on a previous bag, I had the zippers themselves replaced, so that the opening on the zipper itself (as opposed to the zipper pull if that might make sense) could support the luggage locks for the times that I needed them. That might end up being the case here as well.

    Hi TW,

    I have one follow up question. Do you plan to do a video review of this bag? I do see there is one of the small model of the bag.

    Best,

    Hi John,

    Yes, as I mentioned above, I plan to film it this week. We hadn't received our larger versions when I filmed the small one.

    Stay tuned,

    Michelle, TW

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for that info on the video, I am unsure how I missed that info on your first reply.

    If possible, one topic I'd be interested in seeing is on the bag it seems that the grab handle, which is usually located on the side of a bag, is underneath the bag if seated down horizontally. If you could give your insight if that is a pro, con or neither, that would be ideal.

    Best,
    John

    Hi John,

    Hoping to have the video on this shoe up and edited next week, but let me try and answer your question. There are the elongated grab handles on top, then the bottom of the bag has the backpack straps and a grab handle. Now, if you aren't interested in using the backpack straps, there is a sleeve that has some velcro (the black back panel) and you can unclip the backpack straps and stick them in the sleeve, so they are essentially out of sight and out of mind. The grab handle seems to be easily used and accessed. I didn't have any issues or notice it to be at all hard to access.

    Hope that helps,

    Michelle, TW

    Hi Michelle,

    I appreciate that insight.

    That said, I would be wanting to use the backpack straps when carrying the bag. My question, which I don’t think I am doing a stellar job of explaining, related to when I have the bag down flat when playing. I’d typically use that grab handle on the side of the bag to transition that bag north/south in a standing position so that the backpack straps are accessible.

    All in all, I think it will likely be a case where I’ll have to see and use the bag in person to see if it works for my specific use case.

    Thanks so much for your time, as always! I look forward to seeing the review. Thanks again!

    Best,
    John

    Hi John,

    Yea, I think it would be best to get it in your hands and pack it up and see if it works for you!

    Good luck!

    Hi Michelle,

    Many thanks! I see what you mean on the back pack straps being able to be tucked away. I think for many that will be a nice feature.

    My current bag of choice is the Wilson Tour Molded 2.0 Red 15 Pack Bag, so I'll have to compare to this model, and see which works best for me.

    Best always!,
    John
