Carrybag vs. Wheelbag
Carrybags or carrying bags are field hockey bags, which - as the name suggests - are carried.
They have carrying straps and usually also a shoulder strap for more comfortable transport.
In addition to a large main compartment, better equipped bags often offer additional internal and/or external compartments.
Unlike wheel bags, carry bags do not have a fixed bottom, so they are lighter and more flexible, can be stowed more easily in the trunk or on public transportation, and are usually somewhat less expensive than comparable wheel bags. Different sizes ensure that you do not carry around too much bag for your equipment. If you can and want to do without wheels and extra weight, this is the right choice.
Wheelbags or roller bagse are field hockey bags that have a solid bottom with wheels for convenient transport. These are usually stored, some bags offer larger wheels with rougher profile for bad roads. Wheelbags often have additional interior and/or exterior compartments in addition to a main compartment. On most wheelbags, the wheels are on one side of the bottom panel, and a handle for pulling sits on the opposite side of the bag; the higher-end versions also have a retractable telescoping handle. With similar space requirements as comparable carry bags, roller bags mainly offer more convenience on the way to and from the cabin. Different sizes provide the right storage space for every age group. Especially children, who are not yet able to carry too heavy bags over longer distances, benefit from the relief provided by the wheels.
This form of field hockey bag is also available especially for goalkeepers, and special forms such as field hockey backpacks and tower bags with wheels are also available.
with wheels are available. Those who do not want to carry their bag, but pull it comfortably, should opt for a wheelbag.
