2 Ball Tote Bag, with shorter shoulder strap?
« on: April 10, 2009, 03:18:43 PM »
Trying to replace a Brunswick 2 ball tote bag, but want the shoulder strap short enough so the bag is about even with my rib cage.... not my hips. Even the new Brunswick bags have too long of a strap.

Anyone know where I could find such a bag?

And no... I am not a midget or particularly height challenged. Approximately 5'8" tall. I just prefer carrying the bag higher which allows me to walk faster and not be bouncing it off my hips.

Thanks for any input/suggestions.

Yes..  it is/was adjustable (already returned it). But even at the tightest setting, it was too long.

I believe it's one of those things where for one reason or another the styles have changed and the bag is designed to rest on the hips. I just don't like it.

Limits speed I can walk at, and feels like I'm carrying someone else's bag for them. Like a someone else who is much taller than 5'8".

Try the Vise totes. The construction is bulletproof, too.

Found one from Storm in the Pro Shop. Reasonable price, separate compartments  for shoes and accessories, and the shoulder-strap is just right. Actually is a little more compact/less roomy than the older Brunswick tote it's replacing.

Remains to be seen if it's practical in useage--due to less room, but definitely an improvement over the ones I've tried with too-big shoulder-straps that would bang against my hips while walking. It's comfortable to carry. (As comfortable as 32+ pounds of ball slung over your shoulder can be.)
