The tree is nice. I was checking them out at the hockey shop, but ended up grabbing a couple of these Pro Lockers instead.



I'm anal retentive like a mofo, and everything needs to be in it's place drying out after every skate. Game days I have very little cognitive function that doesn't have to do with hockey, so it makes it so much easier for me with the locker. Plus it looks so damn cool.

I got one for my son too, so he can organize his gear. His pride level jumped tenfold with the pro locker, as he now feels like a big time hockey player.



It makes it easy for me when I don't have to yell at him to dry out his gear.

As for forgetting pieces of gear, I always pack my bag ahead of time and I pack it exactly the same way every single time so I can see immediately what's missing.
Hahaha, you and me both.
From toes to head, everything has it's place. I run the biggest Brian's bag there is though, and my bag weighs in at just under 75lbs. It's a beast, so big I can't fit it in my Subie. But it has everything in it, including my pads and mask.

I just jumped on the bandwagon, but I'm guessing the gayness factor is the simple fact that the bags are strict with organization, take up a lot of space, and cost a fortune. I wanted to get one for the boy, until I saw they were $300! That's a grip of cash.

Those pro-locker stalls are cool, I looked into making one but nowhere to put it in our condo. I just lay my gear to dry on a wire rack and it works great.

I like the idea with the Grit bags, especially for those who are lazy to pull their gear out to dry or have limited living space at home. I don't really see the gayness, my bag is always packed in the same order anyways and everything has its own place to fit the best, it'd be awesome if my bag had compartments for stuff. I'd just never spend >$100 on a bag, let alone $150+, and they are bulky to fit into a small car. I like wheeled bags. I'm carry my gear, I'm just lazy.

You can get the stalls for $150: ****Hockey Players****Sports Stall / lockers****
www.playerstall.com

I figure it would probably cost you $50 in materials and your own labour, but you could design it to whatever specs you need/want.

My wife bought me one of those tree's. Works great since we live in condo. I stick the gear in my storage locker and my wife doesn't complain about the smell.
But in the winter time, I usually end up playing late and can't get into the storage locker thus I have to leave it on the balcony. This is where my heated bag comes in.

It helps dry my gear in the winter and fall when it is cold and humid and warms up my gear for me before my game.

It ranks up there with stick bags. " Oh hey, let's protect your sticks from the elements after your game where it just took a beating for 60 mins".

That's where i got mine from.
The quality of the lockers is awesome. I figured there is about $100 worth of materials as they use good hardware and nice wood. Cyclone Taylors is selling the same locker for $300, so $150 is a great price.

Hey now, don't knock stick bags. I run 3 sticks per game and transport them in one bag so they don't beat up my car.

The fact that you wheel your equipment around like a stewardess.

To me grit bags just fall under the wheeled bag category; and those are like Pink shirts to me. I have nothing against people wearing it, but it's just that there's no escaping that there will always be some associations to femininity with it.

Goalies excluded of course; but it's usually because I see most goalies sling their pads over their shoulder instead.

Honestly though, if any of you were to approach me at the rink and talk shit about my equipment i would knock you out. Lets get off the whole "yohr bag is ghey" talk. Its embarassing and belongs in the fashion thread, not this one. Are we bitches, or are we men?

+1, I honestly didn't see any kind of issue regarding the look of Grit bags until explained, and to be honest it's a pretty fucking stupid and insecure reason.

If this is a gear thread, why not talk about bags?

If your some roller fag who comes over and plays Ice with pink gloves, I'm gonna call you a fag on the ice, of course I wouldn't say anything to anyone just randomly about their gear bag, I really couldn't care less but it's just an opinion that obviously others share regarding the bag

This is a gear thread, not a hockey thread.

Honestly, I have a wheel bag but I never use the wheels although it does come in handy in the narrow hallways at RIC when there are several people walking by..

What's wrong with stick bags. I want one but i'm just to cheap to by one. I bought a bag for my goalie pads so its much easier to hull around and they go into the back seat of my car a lot easier.
Is that gay too lol?

I upgraded to a wheel bag ever since I hurt my back, nevertheless, I don't see what's gay about those Grit bags or any other type of bags. They're also space savers so the locker room doesn't get too squeezed in.

What's gay is people with people always buying new gear but still suck at hockey (not applicable to newbies obviously).

Applicable to newbies who buy top of the line gear when they are just starting out. a few guys on the Div 9 team that I subbed on had Total One or APX skates, RS sticks, S19 helmets etc...

good skates and sticks make a difference for everyone imo..

and if you buy totalone skates, odds are they are gonna last a long time for you if your at a low skill level

although if your "just starting out" its kinda pointless cause your probably at the point where you dont even know if you like hockey yet, but for an average player i'd say high end gear does make you a better player

+1 or better yet, spend the money on a good power skating program and buy some mid level gear.

Nothing wrong with high end gear when you know what you are doing.
Tone's for sticks, 9k skates, pro-return pants. Really, I should have nicer shin pads since i block a lot of shots, but mid/low level shins will suffice for now since I am playing in lower divs. For sticks, I know what I like and what works for me. When I try a different curve or different lie or flex, I can tell the difference.
When I get my skates sharpened, I try to get the same person and cut a certain way. Anyone else or anything more or less than what I like, I can tell the difference.

But these guys are total noobs. If they took the money on their high end gear and used it on power skating and stick n puck, they'd improve a lot and to the point the higher end gear may actually help.

What good is a light pair of skates when they drag their skates.

I meant that as advice toward noobs, which I pointed out quite a few pages ago. As for using high end gear, I've only started to get into those now after 6 yrs of playing ice. My so-called nice ops is now my warrior dolo and my Base OPS. But my real first high end gear will be my newly purchased S19 helmet.
