Every team has a different point of view when it comes to the “essentials” of cheerleading. Whether that is having a specific shoe, preferred style of uniform, or standard bow. However, one item that is up for debate is… BAGS!
Duffel bags, backpacks, totes, drawstrings, fanny packs, gear bags, etc (Oh, my!)
With so many different options, you begin to ask questions like, “which is the best function for my needs?” and “does this fit my style?” Which bag should I choose??
We know it is a tough question, so here are a few examples of some of our favorites, and why we think they’re GREAT:
adidas Small Issue Duffel – $31.95
As a leader in the athletic apparel, anything that has “adidas” on it is guaranteed to be great quality (plus they have a lifetime manufacturer’s guarantee, so that’s awesome!). This adidas Small Issue Duffel has great pocket options for lots of storage, and if you need something even larger, there is the big-brother to this bag, the adidas Medium Issue Duffel that give you more room to pack.
This bag has the Hydroshell coated material that keeps your gear dry when the elements get sketchy. The shoulder strap is adjustable and removable, and there is even a side haul handle (which is pretty convenient, if you ask us!)
Holloway League Duffel Bag – $25.95
Made from a heavyweight, water-resistant Oxford Nylon, this duffel bag can withstand a lot of traveling wear and tear. It features a large main compartment with a two-way zipper and bellowed front zippered pocket which is perfect to hold items you need frequently. The League Duffel comes in 11 different colors and has an adjustable/detachable padded shoulder strap and padded handle. The bag stays open because of a removable hard base, remove the base to fold up the bag when it’s not in use carrying all of your important gear!

Made of a durable denier polyester, this is a great low-cost option for a budget minded cheerleader.
