Some people just carry their swimming kit in a plastic carrier bag, but if you are a regular swimmer you'll probably want something more durable and specifically designed for this purpose. Here at Simply Swim we offer a huge range of swimming bags from leading swim brands, Speedo, Zoggs, Arena and more so that choosing the best one for you will depend on how much kit you take with you to the pool. Let's have a look at the main types of swim bags available.
Mesh bags are simple drawstring bags which are idea for carrying swimming kit to and from the pool. They vary in size from small to large and do not have any separate compartments inside, so they are really suitable for swimmers who carry around training aids such as floats, kickboards and pull buoys. There are also children's drawstring bags available which feature colourful fun designs, these are ideal for their swimsuit, towel, goggles and swim cap.
Waterproof dry bags are small bags made from waterproof fabric and feature roll tops that click shut, making them 100% waterproof. They are useful for keeping things dry at the poolside or for putting wet gear in to transport home.
Backpacks are large, sturdy bags which are also known as rucksacks. These are a great choice for anyone who takes lots of stuff to the pool. Most rucksacks come with a number of pockets so you can easily sort your possessions to help you find them more easily at changing time. Some also come with 'wet' sections, for storing your wet items away from the dry ones on the way home.
Duffel bags are another large, strong option which are ideal if you carry a lot of extra kit to and from the pool such as training aids or floats. They all have a number of separate storage pockets to let you sort your kit for easy access and come in a range of sizes and colours.
