Sport bags provide a way to tote miscellaneous clothing, objects and equipment needed for various physical activities. Some bags are designed exclusively for a specific category, such as skiing or snowboarding, while others are appropriate for many different types of recreation including camping, hiking, yoga and golf. Rugged materials that will not puncture, rip or tear, such as nylon, polyester and canvas, are important because sports paraphernalia often has sharp edges, like spiked shoes and tent poles.
Roomy duffel bags are ideal for bulky items, like a helmet, sneakers, body pads and gloves, while a lightweight backpack is most suitable to carry survival gear on treacherous hikes and mountain climbing expeditions. Cyclist can mount small daypacks, with mesh pockets for water bottles and zippered compartments for snacks and a cell phone, to the rear of the bicycle. Sport bags in bright colors will be easy to spot, while neutral shades will blend into the surroundings.
