Triathlon Gear Bags
Packing gear for a triathlon can be a huge deal. You definitely don’t want to forget anything but you don’t want to have to be slugging around lots of bag. This is why it can be a great investment to purchase a triathlon gear bag. They are made for this purpose and designed so that each pocket should be filled. If a pocket or pouch is empty you may have forgotten something important. Plus your new gear bag can be used for other purposes when you are not competiting.
Nathan Quick Change Triathlon Gear Bag
This gear bag was developed by the president of Nathan, Jon Reichlin, who participates in triathlon competitions himself. The bag was designed with top competitors in mind and mindful to the quick change concept of a triathlon event.
Features of this quick change gear bag include:
- Combination handles/shoulder straps for easy carrying
- Mesh bottle holster
- Ventilated, waterproof wetsuit compartment
- Nutrition/organizer pockets

This is a large bag with dimensions of 21.6 x 13.8 x 11 inches. The wet suit compartment will hold a large full sized wetsuit. The fold out transition pad is very practical and means that you can pack one towel less.
The lined pockets are appreciated by customers who say they are perfect for holding items like your glasses or cell phones, items that you don’t want to get damaged.
Whether you are just starting your triathlon career or are a seasoned pro this bag will help keep you more organized. The only complaint with the bag was that it doesn’t have a chest strap. Other than that the reviews for this product have been fantastic.[DEAL_OF_THE_DAY]
