Product Review: Gray-Nicolls GN800 Duffel Bag

Gray-Nicolls GN800 Duffel Bag

This is a good bag, but the fact that you can’t get two adult (SH) bats in rules it out as an option for the senior player in my opinion. Another weakness is the lack of a separate pocket for your helmet so whilst you can get two bats (just) and a helmet in the straps are really hard to fasten and the bag loses shape and becomes very bulky.

Those issues aside for players with smaller bats and helmet this is a really good bag.

My Review

Pockets, lots of pockets, which means that you can get a lot in, but you will need a good memory as to what goes where.

I like the colour and like the front loading zip, although it not being full length can make getting pads in particular in, and there is not natural place for your helmet.

It is comfortable on the shoulders and would be an excellent bag for the younger player.
