Organizing your racquet bags

#1
I was wondering how you all organize your compartments in your bags. I'm pretty anal retentive and need to have all my wrist bands together in one section, my exercise bands and skipping rope in another, my dampeners and wraps in another, etc... But I'm still finding tough to sort through it finds things quickly. Anyone suffer from the same problem and/or have ideas to organize? Cheers!

I use large zip-loc freezer bags and separate everything with those. Works perfectly, and I can grab what I need easily....

doesnt look like there is a lot of room for spare shirts, etc. there.

my biggest design peeve is the complete lack of any bag on the market that I can find that has an external attached mesh bag to stuff sweat soaked tshirts, wrist bands, bandanas, etc. in

If you put the sweaty stuff in the bag, everything else gets real stinky real quick. If you put the sweaty stuff in the bag in a bug sealed bag, the stinky microbes or whatever will ruin stuff real fast.

Just a simple poly mesh zipper bag that clips on to the outside of the bag with a couple of clips. Would probably add less than $1 to the cost of the bag.

I'm sorely tempted by one of the Tecnifibre Rackpacks next time I'm looking for a bag. No idea how well they perform, but they look like next level compartmentalisation.

Those bags are great for organization and the durability is second to none. One of my teammates works for the local sporting goods store and the rep gave him one. It's the same materials they use on all their other bags. I have one of their book bags from stringing and the build quality is second to none. I've found that the 'smaller' companies like tecnifibre and solinco use higher quality materials on their bags. I also try to organize everything in an efficient manner which is why I carry a 15 pack from Solinco. I use one of the external top pockets for my phone and keys, the other one for a koozie, gum, and sunglasses. I use the lower outer pockets on one side for overgrips (wilson, solinco heaven grips, tourna) depending on time of year. The other lower pocket is wrist bands. I use one side (left ) if you're looking at the bag standing up against a wall for my rackets (always 2, maybe 3). The middle pocket is for towels, hats, bandaids (in pocket) tape (in pocket). The right large compartment is for shoes, extra clothes, and water bottle on the way to court and flip flops and wet clothes, hats, towels on the way home. It also has a shoe pocket on the underside but I don't use it as it goes into the middle main compartment on the underside. When I used the Wilson 15 pack It had a 'wets' pocket on the side of the bag and I used it frequently. Other than condensing my grips and wrist bands into the same pocket to accomodate that the set up was similar.

+1 on the tec bags, I've had their 25L backpack and it's been used for everything at this point. I think down the line I'll buy that rackpack but in interim I was inspired by that and it made me think of photo bag inserts, (or a diaper bag inserts). Might see if this helps

I have it, and you can pack a lot in it.
- Racquet slot can actually fit 5 racquets if you can layer the handles
- The pocket holding the water bottle up there? It's actually deep enough to fit two 40oz thermals (hydroflask or other)
- Shoe compartment is large enough to fit a warm jacket + another sweater

Wow, that tecnifibre bag is awesome. I have a basic 3 racquet bag now which works, but I don't like the lack of compartments and uneven weight distribution. I would like one that is smaller though with maybe 50-75% of the same space.
