Say hello to your new training bag with the Medium Pro Backpack. This pack has all the compartments you need for your cell phone, goggles and gear on your travels to and from practice.
An update to my earlier review, after about two months of regular use: I still really like this bag, but I am definitely noticing some disappointing aspects. The wet compartment is great, but could certainly be more spacious. I have to squeeze regular sized shampoo bottles in because of the pocket''s width. Not much can fit in the side mesh pockets--definitely not regular sized water bottles, especially when the side zip pockets are filled. I would not suggest keeping a cell phone in the front "cell phone pocket" because I suspect it would be easy to fall out. Instead, I store my phone in the "media pocket", which does NOT easily fit an iPhone 5. The interior is spacious enough, but now that winter is approaching I wonder if I''ll actually be able to fit an extra set of warm clothes including a jacket inside along with my regular things (all equipment is in a separate mesh bag). I chose the medium sized bag because the small was FAR too small and the large seemed too large, but perhaps I should have gone with the large bag. The "medium" is smaller than expected. Perhaps the most disappointing thing though is the zipper quality! They feel very lose on the tracks as if compartments could easily be opened unintentionally with movement. One of the two zippers to the main compartment fell completely off a track! Especially after only a couple months of use, I expected better durability.
I''m not sure exactly HOW new this product is, but I couldn''t find any reviews of it before purchasing! Therefore I have tried to provide a fairly brief but comprehensive review.Many swimmers I know have the large and a few the small sizes, however I felt an intermediate size capacity would best fit my needs. Although this backpack IS smaller than I expected, it does hold quite a bit. I comfortably carry several caps, pairs of goggles, sets of clothes, suits, a towel, water bottle, shampoo and conditioner bottles, and tennis shoes. It is lightweight and both the rubberized bottom and water-beading outer fabric seem high quality and well thought out. The mesh "wet compartment" is VERY useful! It fits three soap bottles, a suit, cap, and googles post-practice well. I would not suggest using this backpack to hold equipment, though; a mesh bag would be better suited. Without taking out much of what I carry, I doubt a parka would fit. The pink color is gorgeous--bright and fun while tasteful.Overall, I''m very happy with this Speedo Medium Pro Backpack. I would highly suggest it for someone who is looking for a high-quality and well-thought-out swim bag but does not need a cavernous space to carry things, smaller swimmers with more to carry than fits in the small size but who are looking for a more manageable pack. I would appreciate a few more interior pockets; there is only a laptop pouch, and more pockets would facilitate better organization. I hope the backpack is durable, as I plan to use it a lot as a competitive swimmer!4+ stars
I bought both the large and medium bags to compare for my 7 and 9 year old girls. There is a significant difference in size, but I was able to pack 2 towels, a change of clothes, goggles, swim cap, a small shampoo bottle, and swimsuit in it, and there was still a little room to pack snacks and a water bottle. I am going to exchange the large for a medium; it''s just too big, and I can''t imagine them filling it up with swim gear in the near future. I do wish the medium was a little bit bigger, but really, it will suit their needs just fine.
This bag is great for the first years of a young, serious swimmer. It holds everything needed for swim practice. When the time comes, we will move up to the larger size, but for now ~ this size is perfect!
Just the right size for my 8 year old. Holds all of her swim gear.
I purchased it in Medium for a great price. The backpack is amazingly spacious inside. I am able to pack all my swim stuff, slippers included. The wet pocket is a nice touch - very very useful. What I carry in my backpack: goggles in a case, slippers, big fluffy towel, swim suit, shampoo & conditioner, wallet, keys, cell phone and water.
We bought two of these bags for my kids (1 and 8 years old). The medium size is just perfect for their age. There are many useful compartments to organize their swim gear. We recommend this product.
It's a small backpack, perfect for a youth swimmer. It holds 1 towel, 2 suits, goggles, cap, shampoo, and soap well. For a kid who packs a hairdryer or an adult I'd recommend the next size up. Nice quality stitching throughout.
I just returned from a trip to Costa Rica and this backpack is the best. Lots of space for all those last minute essentials and I took it aboard the aircraft as my "carry on" piece in addition to the take on suitcase. I loved the "padded" back against my back and its waterproof bottom outside. Easy to clean fabric on outside. An excellent backpack not just for swimming gear! Great value!
I had to return the Medium bag and then planning on buying the Large bag. My daughter is 13 years old and the medium bag was way too small for her swim gear.
