Hi,

I often walk to gyms and community centers to do my juggling practice sessions – plenty of room and very high ceilings!

Can you recommend, perhaps with links, bags that you have used and are happy with?

My typical practice session requires room to carry at least:

3 clubs
6 four-inch Dube stage balls
6 Juggle Bug Ribbed balls
5 2.25 lb (each) Dube ExerBalls
5 Rings (13 inch diameter)

I need something that can withstand the weight of these props – so am seeking a good quality combination of ease of mobility and tough durability.

Thank you in advance and again – any links to products you like is deeply appreciated.

I have an over the shoulder mesh bag that I bought at the beach, they are made to hold towels, and it carry all the props I need for either for a show, or for practice. When I found them on the boardwalk in Ocean City NJ I boutht 8 of them, I now have enough mesh bags to last longer than I will.

I will be in Atlantic City this summer.
Al, do you have any photos to share?
with thanks,

Actually the company who makes these bags is in New Jersey, so I would think that all NJ beach communities cary them. If you PM me your email address I will send you a picture of mine this afternoon. I haven't the computer skill to post it here or I would. These bags come in about 6 different colors, and I have one in each color. When I do a show I carry my brief case, my jump stool, and this bag over my back. If I don't need my PA system I can do it all in one trip. I believe the bags cost me under $10 each.

I use my bag to hold all of the juggling props that I need for a show. I wear a bag over my shoulder when I do walkaround, and for parades. Most of the times I use a black bag, but for holidays like Christmas, Holloween, or 4th of July I change my bags to match my costume. The boardwalk kite store owner thought I was crazy the day I walked into her store, and bought all of the beach blanket bags she had.

Canvas grocery shopping bag might fill your requirements. Very similar to what Al is using, I suspect.
If you Google "duffel" you'll find more options than you can shake your devil stick at.

Hi All,

I started this thread with a plea for feedback about “informal” prop transportation bag recommendations.

Since that time, I have been practicing, experimenting and exercising with a wider variety of juggling props.

I just discovered the “Mister Babache Big Pack.”

According to the official description, this Bag:

“…is specially designed to hold all basic types of juggling equipment. Special pockets hold 10 clubs, 10 rings, 6 torches, personal papers and other small items, and as many other things as you can fit into the roomy main pocket. The Big Pack is constructed to allow you to clip on a Ball Pack, Diabolo Pack, or Devil Stick Pack (each sold separately). The shoulder straps and adjustable tops straps are embroidered with "Mister Babache JUGGLING" to declare your favorite hobby.
Colormix 1: blue, green, and navy blue
Colormix 2: red, blue, and navy blue.
$150”

My journey to my local gym is by foot and quite the walk…can you recommend any other Bags/Packs specifically designed to hold several clubs, balls and other assorted Juggling items?

Thank you!

I don't think there are any specifically designed packs other than the Mr B one.

Although your standard gym bag will work fine.

What do you guys and gals think of this?:

<<Zeekio's Josh Horton Bag meets the needs of even the most hard-core jugglers!

Lots of serious jugglers weighed in on just what they'd like to see in a heavy-duty, oversized, all-purpose juggling bag. This brand-new edition bag is double-stitched for durability, and has compartments to fit practically any and all of your juggling stuff.

Clubs, rings, diabolos, balls .... you name it, there's plenty of room in these bags. And the durable shoulder-style straps allow for easy carrying on the back or in hand.

The Josh Horton Signature Series Juggling Bag comes in three great colors: Classic Black, Blue and Light Red.>>
