Track Bags Or Cases?

So to the last couple of track days I throw my stuff in a big tupperware box that I got from Target.. After walking around the paddock I see gear bags and cases that have really struck my eye.. The Box takes up a ton of volume in the truck and trailer and is very awkward trying to carry in the paddock. So post up pictures and link ill be investing in either a rolling case or a soft bag pretty soon.
Thanks
Nick

I have one of those track side bags from CG. Carries my helmet, boots, warmers, surge protector, beacon and gloves. I am sure I could get more in there if I needed to.

No matter what, if I grab my leathers and THAT bag....I can ride. As long as I didnt forget my bike and it's key.

I like the bags on wheels! Makes it so much easier trying to lug all your gear around.

We got ours at Target. It fits two helmets, to pair of boots, my neck collar, two back protectors and several other odds and ends. We just leave all our stuff in there and then we are ready to roll it out at the next trackday. One of the best things we ever bought.

I have an Ogio 9800. I got a pretty good deal on it, otherwise they're really expensive. It'll store my underarmor, boots, gloves, suit, back protector, and helmet with some space to spare. It has a plastic back so I can toss it around, and wheels so it rolls. GREAT investment.

They're great bags, if bit pricey. If I really tried, I could probably fit everything I needed for a trackday in it....short of my spare parts bin and box fan.



I'll give you a warning though: TAKE YOUR SUIT OUT AS SOON AS YOU GET HOME. My lazy buddy decided to "unpack later" which turned into 2 weeks, and when he finally pulled his suit out it was moldy. Gross.

yeah even some of those big duffle bags at sports authority and what not were 30 bucks. and if that was the case I was just going to spend the extra cash on a fly motocross gear bag with separate compartments.. The tupperware boxes are alright for about one or two track days but are awkward to carry and take up alot more space... hey swat check out my track bike paint thread what do you think about a nicky hayden replica? with the star
