I may not be toting around the Denver Broncos with all of the logistics of transporting an NFL team around week after week, but triathletes have a lot of crap to carry around to workouts and races. They probably travel MORE than an NFL team when you consider daily workouts traveling from home to the gym, from work to the gym, from the gym to work, from the gym to home and wherever else a workout may take us. I also don’t get a personal locker at our workout facilities to house our crud while not at the gym. Those NFL players are so pampered… but I digress. Lets not also forget transporting swim, bike and run gear to destination races.
TYR, Nike, Reebok, Louis Garneau, Zoot, Orca, Xterra, 2XU and more then I can list here make very sufficient options for triathletes to get all of their gear from point A to point B, but not all bags are created equal. When you need to carry gear for swimming, biking, running, strength training, yoga, pilates or whatever else you incorporate into your training and racing regimen, you need space, you need functionality and you need convenience. What’s the point of all of the zippers and pockets if you can’t get to your stuff quickly, the bag catches on everything when you walk around with it and it won’t fit all of your stuff?
