    I'm in deperate need of a new gym bag, my current one having been in service for 4 years now, which is probably 3 too many.

    I'm looking for a rather smallish duffle style bag - say 20" or so in length. I want something cool looking, but no messenger bags please:)

    I swim 3/4 times a week, so it needs to hold a towel, bathing suit, goggles, shampoo and the occassional book, and lend itself to being stuffed into a locker.

    I looked today (while in woodbury) at kipling (all were very large), nike and adidas (cheap looking) and, ahem, ghurka ($495 for the smallest).

    Any recommendations?

    Try Holabird. I get my racquetball stuff from them and have always been happy. Of course if you are looking for designer stuff its not gonna work but its definately worth a gander and they have an easy return policy. Always found them to be headache free. JJF

    FIH - thanks. great resource. I'm not looking for a designer bag - just something a little more upscale and presentable. I think I'll get either this one - Head or this one - Wilson

    No Problem

    I would go with the head as I am not a big US OPEN fan.

    They have very competative pricing as well. And if you jog or do any other sweating in sports I would go with the Under Armour stuff as well. They are unbeatable and amazingly comfortable.

    Take this opportunity to order some of that stuff now as they dont charge a higher price for shipping multiple items.
