Default Grit tower Bag

My daughter (9) and my son (7) have got to the point where the dress themselves well, except for tying skates. The only issue they have is finding their gear in their bags and then getting back into their bags. This is especially hard for my daughter because she also has goalie gear in her bag.

I was thinking of getting each of them a grit tower bag. The goalie gear will stay in the old bag.
I was thinking of going ahead and getting the large one so they will just grow into it. Any thoughts on which size?

Also, any thoughts on the bag will be great as well.

thanks,

Ernie

Works great; had mine for a couple years now. Plenty of storage space for my stuff. I used to get razzed for using a wheeled bag but not much anymore... in fact more and more around here are using them now. When you get older you get wiser... it's a lot easier on your back to use a wheeled bag. ;)

Just to add my 2 cents...I initially thought these Grit bags were a bit pricey for their purpose, but went ahead and bit the bullet for one. I can say say now that they are are DEFINITELY worth every penny. These storage compartments work very well for storing all the gear in their proper places so organization is a snap, and the ventilation holes to dry the gear is actually functional, and not just some cheap gimmick. The fold down foot pad and the stick holster on either side is really handy too. I don't think you will regret the purchase. I just wish inline/ice warehouse carried these...

thanks, we actually just received them yesterday. Kids put their stuff in them. We will test them out tonight in the locker room at practice. I am looking forward to only having to tie skates instead of help digging in their bags to find their stuff.

Ok, so the kids and the wife love them. I am not completely sold yet. They are huge and tough for the kids to get up and down stairs. We play at a civic center.

It is a cool idea but they are huge.

I must be the odd man out 'cause I actually ditched mine to go back to a cheap Reebok Pro bag (32"). Tower bag(s) were just too big/bulky, imo.

I got one and getting everything to fit is a pain. Granted I just got it. The main selling point for me was the replaceable wheels. It is built very well and it has nifty features. I just wished it was a little bigger.
