    Default Help with a catchers bag

    Ok. I have looked all over the net when I should have just asked here first. DD is a catcher that also pitches and plays first so we haul a lot of gear. She also carries 3 bats (the one we are trying to move up to, the one we are moving up from, and BP bat). The bag we have now is big enough but I cringe at the thought of that much money spent on bats and there is no protection. They are getting beat up without leaving the bag. What bags would you recommend that has the bats on the side of the bag in their own pockets or at least have individual sleeves for the bats inside the bag.

    Check out maxballbags.com cobra xl catchers bag.

    DD uses a boombah brute and nothing gets beat up.

    Look at a Tanel 360 and see what you think. DD loves hers.

    Our team used Maxball bags for a while. Every Cobra XL came apart very quickly. I suspect it was a materials issue with the red fabric. Same issue on at least 8 bags over the course of 2 years. We switched to Boombah, and didn't have an issue. My DD liked her Brute, and had no issues for the 6+ months she had it.

    DD has had 2 Boombahs over the past 3 years. The only reason she has gone thru 2 is because her team changed clubs/colors. It has held up well. She hauls around catchers gear, 3 gloves, countless water bottles and bags of seeds, hoodies, 3 bats and who knows what else!

    ETA: DD has the Boombah Beast

    I am a catcher and I use a Boombah Beast catcher bag. I bought mine about half way through our high school season and I love the bag. It seems like its going to hold up very well. I carry 4 bats in the bag along with my catcher gear, catcher mitt, regular mitt, fielding facemask, hat, spare jersey, softballs, spare hair accessories, seeds, hoodie, braces elastics and a small first aid kit with wraps and athletic tape as well as bandaids and anti bacterial cream.

    Here's the link for the bag...

    I got mine in black/pink.
    I am a catcher. The plate is my castle… and I am the queen of that castle. To beat me… you have to out play me and want it more than me. You think your up for the challenge… then bring it and try me.

    Base runners… beware of catcher. Those that try to steal, will be thrown out at their base!

    My DD is rather brutal with hers, no pun intended. It is holding up rather well.

    Thanks for all the replies. I am definitely leaning toward boombah.

    My DD preferred the Brute to the Beast. Most of the other catchers I have talked to who have used both have the same opinion.
