Gone are the days of having to fit all your gear into that smelly, dark abyss that was your old hockey bag. The industry has really stepped up it's game in recent years and given us a bunch of great options to choose from that offer tons more usefulness and functionality than we've ever had before in a hockey bag. It doesn't matter if you are a pro or a beer-leaguer, you'll love the latest bags.

Needing to get yourself a new bag and not sure how to compare them correctly? What is the best hockey bag? Take a look at our comparison sheet below to best inform yourself to make the best decision. Two things: 1) We only evaluated carry bags (If your bag has wheels, you probably don't.=) and 2) Perhaps obviously, you can expect to see our Legend Player Bag in the sheet as we believe it's the best one out there for your hard earned money. But, go ahead and read on to make the best choice for yourself.

(Tip: If you're on a phone then change it to desktop mode or at least rotate your screen to see more of the comparison table.)
