Sports bag: one term, several models

When you think of sports bags, you think of the classic black polyester bag with a shoulder strap. Of course, these models, which usually have a large storage compartment, are still very popular. You can use them for all kinds of sports. Keys or smartphones can be stored in the smaller compartments of the bags. They are often made of breathable material that prevents unpleasant odours from developing. But there are other designs. Duffle bags shine with plenty of storage space and are the perfect, hard-wearing companions for longer outdoor adventures. Tennis bags, ski bags and bike bags are specially cut to offer enough space for the respective sports equipment. Fanny packs have storage space for essential valuables, mobile phone, money or keys. These small miracles of space offer you enough room to store your most important utensils when jogging, for example.

What makes a good sports bag?

A sports bag should have space and offer enough storage space. On the other hand, a training bag should not be too big and bulky. Equally important is the weight and, of course, the material: if a sports bag is water-permeable, its lifespan will most likely be shorter than that of waterproof models. The material used should also withstand adverse conditions and other stresses. Duffel bags meet these criteria. The bags, which are reminiscent of duffel bags due to their design, not only exude a certain retro charm. They are also particularly suitable for trips into the countryside. Durable water-repellent DWR impregnations protect your belongings from moisture and are extremely hard-wearing. The special thing about duffel bags from premium manufacturers like The North Face, Douchebags or Deuter is that you can also wear them comfortably as a backpack thanks to the compression straps. However, it doesn't always have to be the really big solution. For the jogging session, a fanny pack, for example from Fjällräven or ASICS, is also sufficient to store all the essentials. But even in this case, you should look for robust, durable models so that you don't have to worry about your mobile phone and co. in bad weather. Most fanny packs have adjustable straps, internal and external pockets and key holders.

How do I pack my sports bag?

It's simple: pack only the essentials. Put heavy items on the bottom: Since bags don't have sturdy sides like suitcases, you should pack the heaviest items at the bottom (shoes, drinks, dumbbells, other sports equipment). Always remove used sports clothes or sweaty clothes from the bag immediately and pack them for the next training session when you get home.

Checklist - a well-packed sports bag contains:

  • Drinks
  • Sportswear
  • Sports shoes
  • Other sports equipment (rackets, balls, dumbbells, etc.)
  • Towel
  • Shower gel, shampoo, deodorant
  • Spare clothes (to change after training)

Your valuables (mobile phone, money, keys, watch, cards, jewellery, ...) should be stored safely (locker) and not just left open in your sports bag during training.

Types of sports bags

Training bags: The classic among sports bags. Training bags come with a functional design, two carrying handles and a carrying strap. The ideal companions for going to the gym or the fitness centre.

Duffels: If you want to escape the urban jungle and head off on your next adventure, you should have the right bag with you. Duffel bags not only defy wind and weather due to their nature, but also surprise you with enormous storage space.

Fanny packs: They are the ideal companion when you leave the house for a jog with just your keys, mobile phone and money. Fanny packs can be easily adjusted to the right size and offer enough storage space for your belongings.

Bike bags: On two wheels, storage space is limited. Bicycle panniers are a remedy for this space problem. You can store necessary tools as well as valuables in them. They are available both as saddle bags and as handlebar or frame bags.
