Transition Bag
POSTED: 6/16/13 1:47 PM

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what a good transition bag would be? I just finished the NTP program and a couple friends have suggested getting a transition bag to help keep things organized for the race. Any thoughts?

I've been pretty happy with my De Soto bag:

It's GIANT. I was able to stuff everything I needed in there when I did Alcatraz last year and needed to carry an extra pair of running shoes and a wetsuit. My only complaint is that the backpack straps are a little too close together and rub a bit when you're wearing it.

I spent quite some time last year during NTP 2012 researching bags and found this article helpful: http://triathlons.thefuntimesguide.com/2009/03/triathlon_equipment.php

BeginnerTriathlete.com also offers rock-solid gear review such as this one for the Rocket Science tri bag: http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=820

Ultimately, it's just up to personal preference and your budget. I ended up going with the Louis Garneau Race Day Revo Bag and have been VERY pleased with it: http://www.louisgarneau.com/in-en/product/310737/1493807/Triathlon/RACE_DAY_REVO_BAG

Good luck!

Thanks for all the input. I ended up buying the Desoto Transition bag that night. I was able to find a good price and based on doing some reading on the different transition bags. Kenn, thank you for the response as well I know someone who is looking for a bag so I will see if they are interested.
