    Currently I use a messenger bag for (hand towel, tissues, lip balm, ipod, headphones, psp/ds, book) and a duffel bag for (boxers, rashguard, cup, belt, soap, wipes etc)

    I want something that can fulfill both needs.. plus something that can carry back dirty wet clothes without it mixing with my ipod etc..

    I would also prefer a backpack because the duffel bag thing is getting annoying.. any suggestions?

    check out ogio brand. its very high quality and they have alot of space.

    your gonna want a 20"+ duffle/sportsbag that features a "wet pocket" or shoe pocket for your sweaty shirts, cup, wet towel, and shit like that.

    yeah, i used to sell for a manufacturer of travelware and luggage.

    and im not sure if your training striking as well... but how would you fit allthatshit.jpg into a convenient sized backpack?

    im thinkin you just find a duffle with a ton of pockets.

    My coach actually uses a hockey bag cause it was WAY cheaper than most big duffels, and he can fit all of his gear, pads, clothes, etc and still have plenty of room.

    I use a duffel bag, but it's pretty cramped. I need a big gear bag. Probably be hitting up TitleMMA for a big one after christmas.

    The biggest bag I've ever used for training was an underarmor hockey gear bag, and that shit looked like a body bag with hand straps lol. That fit all the sparring equipment I have. It was also very cheap.

    I use a small duffel bag with a lot of pockets. I dump my dirty clothes (usually just a shirt / rash guard / and shorts) into it but I immediately take them out when I get home.

    I usually just wear my gi pants + tshirt to the gym and hold onto my gi top. The only things inside my messenger bag is a bottle of water, towel, belt and some change in case I need to buy a drink or something.

    I just wear a gi most places, that way most people are scared of you as you are crazy and potentially know some form of martial arts.

    I have a pretty big nike bag, since I carry a lot of gear. One day's gear is normally: gi, belt, mouthpiece, water bottle, towel, shin pads, bag gloves, boxing gloves, focus mitts, head gear, jock/cup, shorts, and extra shirts/rashguard. I leave my Thai pads at the gym so I don't have to carry them every day with all my other shit.

    I don't carry much in. Gi, belt and water bottle. I tie my belt into a loop and hook it over my wrist or around my water bottle most of the time.
