What's the deal with 30"x15"x15" bags?


Inside our gear truck we have shelves (left) that allow us to keep bags inside, dry & protected in case (no, don't say it) it rains in the afternoon.  Also, it's easier for you to find your bags each day; you don't have to pick through a ginormous pile.  We're all in this together.  If everyone packs 30"x15"x15" bags they stack better & we all win.

None of these exact bags are required.

These are sample duffel bags that meet size requirements & will pack well in the truck.  Please avoid bags with the name "Monster on Wheels" "Supersize" or "Circus."   These samples show that there are plenty of 30"x15"x15" options available.

Stores are in alphabetical order, no preferential treatment implied  :-)
