Swimming Backpacks Are a Necessity

Swimming Backpack
A swimming backpack is essential for any swimmer.

With all the back and forth to the pool for practices and meets alike, you will find a good swimming backpack is a necessity. You don’t want to entrust all your swim gear to just any backpack you can buy in your local department store. Instead, you want to choose a special one that is designed to be a swim backpack. These backpacks offer features that were designed with swimmers in mind.Arena Swim Backpack

Arena is one of the big names in team swimming. This is why they have taken the time to design a swim backpack that will fit your needs. With a section for your wet suit and towel after the meet and a water-resistant bottom, you don’t need to worry about getting everything else wet. The padded straps ensure your comfort as you head to and from the pool.

Nike Swimming Backpack

If Nike is your brand of choice, the Nike swimming backpack has a large, waterproof bottom that allows the backpack to sit up on its own for easier access. The mesh pockets allow you to store your wet items after the meet. Other great features in this bag include a section for your shoes or other footwear, a pocket for your cell phone and one for your sunglasses as well.

TYR Backpacks

TYR offers two different swim backpacks that will provide you with everything you need to transport your swim gear from home to the pool and back. If swimming is just part of your talents as a triathlon star, the Transition swim backpack provides you with the room you need for all your gear, from your swimsuit and goggles to your bike helmet and running shoes. If you don’t need space for all these items, the Alliance team backpack 2 may be a better choice. This backpack features pockets for your wet gear, as well as an mp3 player.

If you are looking for a

to make it easier to transport your swimming gear to and from your practices and meets, you don’t need to look too far. Many of the biggest names in swim gear make backpacks that have separate pockets for your wet gear after you are done swimming, as well as your dry clothes and shoes while you are in the pool.

Speedo Pro Backpack

Speedo Pro Backpack

By far the most popular swim backpack is the Speedo Pro Backpack. This is the best selling swimming backpack on the market. So what makes it so great? First off the styling is great with the 100% polyester dobby fabric that gives you that shiny new look and the color choices that will work great with any swim team outfit. The Speedo backpacks have been a great option for many years now and the Pro Backpack continues to take it to the next level with the anatomically shaped shoulder straps, cell phone and goggle pouch, media pocket, wet pocket, ventilated side pockets, and front webbing towel straps. The towel straps are one of my favorite features on a good swim backpack. They are obviously perfect for your towel but they are also great for drying your wet swimsuits after swim practice. I also see a lot of swimmers that will attach key chains and bag tags to the towel straps. Don’t worry about setting your Speedo Pro Backpack on the wet pool deck since it has a water resistant rubberized bottom to keep your stuff dry. Another great option with this swim backpack is the large flap at the top which serves two purposes: easy access to your gear and a great place to embroider your name and swim team logo. Don’t worry if the Pro Backpack is too big because is also has a little brother the Speedo Small Pro Backpack.
