5 Things To Consider When Choosing A Badminton Kit Bag

Planning for your first, or next Badminton kit bag can be difficult. Regardless of your playing level, consider the following essential factors when choosing a badminton kit bag: shape, size, mobility, ease and safety.

Know your weight class

Before purchasing a badminton kit bag, it is important to know which weight class you will need. The four main badminton racket weight classes are:

  • Featherweight (up to 80 grams): These rackets are designed for players with a fast swing speed. They are lightweight and offer little resistance when swinging.
  • Lightweight (80-85 grams): These rackets are a good option for players who want a balance of power and maneuverability. They offer more power than featherweight rackets but are still relatively easy to swing.
  • Mediumweight (85-90 grams): These rackets provide more power and stability than lightweight rackets. They are a good choice for players who want to generate more force with their swings.
  • Heavyweight (over 90 grams): These rackets offer the most power and stability of all the weight classes. They are best suited for players who have strong arms and can generate high speeds with their swings.

Choose the right size

Badminton racket bags come in a variety of sizes. It is important to choose a bag that is large enough to accommodate all of your gear but not so large that it becomes cumbersome to carry. The following are some general guidelines for choosing the right size bag:

  • One-piece rackets: A small or medium-sized bag should be sufficient.
  • Two-piece rackets: A medium or large-sized bag will be needed.
  • Shoes, clothing, and other accessories: A small or medium-sized bag should be sufficient.

Consider the features

When choosing a badminton kit bag, you should consider the following features:

  • Number of compartments: Badminton racket bags typically have one or two main compartments. Some also have smaller pockets for storing smaller items such as shuttles and grip tape.
  • Racket compartment: Many racket bags have a dedicated compartment for storing rackets. This helps to protect the rackets from damage and keeps them separate from other items in the bag.
  • Padding: It is important to choose a bag that has adequate padding. This will help to protect your gear from bumps and scratches.
  • Shoulder straps: Shoulder straps make it easier to carry your bag. Some bags also have a carrying handle for added convenience.

What size should the bag be?

The size of the bag is an important consideration when choosing a badminton kit bag. A smaller bag may be easier to carry, but it may not have enough space to store all of your equipment. A larger bag may be more difficult to carry, but it will have more space for your equipment. Choose a bag that is the right size for you and your equipment. 

What’s the best material?

Badminton bags are made of different materials like polyester, nylon, and canvas. All these materials have their own pros and cons. It is important to choose a bag material depending on the environment where you will be using it the most.

Polyester is a synthetic fabric that is known for its durability and strength. It is resistant to tearing and stretching, making it a good choice for carrying heavy equipment. However, polyester is not as breathable as other materials and can trap heat, making it uncomfortable to use in hot weather.

Nylon is another synthetic fabric that is often used in badminton bags. It is lightweight and strong, making it easy to carry around. Nylon is also water resistant, so it can protect your equipment from the elements. However, nylon is not as durable as polyester and can tear easily if not handled carefully.

Canvas is a natural fabric made from cotton or hemp. It is durable and breaths well, making it a good choice for hot weather. However, the canvas is not as water resistant as nylon or polyester and can be damaged by exposure to moisture. 

What size badminton bag should I get?

The size of the bag you need depends on how much equipment you want to carry with you. If you only need to carry a few items, a small bag like our Yonex 0130W will do the job. For larger loads, our Yonex 0170W or Victor V6001 is a better choice.

Waterproof or not?

When it comes to choosing a badminton kit bag, one of the main things you need to consider is whether you want a bag that is waterproof or not. There are benefits and drawbacks to both options, so it’s important to weigh up what is most important to you before making your decision.

If you choose a waterproof badminton kit bag, you can be sure that your belongings will be protected from the elements no matter what the weather is like. This is especially important if you often play outdoors in wet conditions. However, waterproof bags can sometimes be more expensive than non-waterproof ones, and they can also be less breathable, which means your equipment might get more sweaty during use.

If you opt for a non-waterproof badminton kit bag, you’ll save some money and your gear will have better ventilation. However, you’ll need to be extra careful not to expose your bag to the elements, as this could damage your equipment.

Should there be a zipper or not?

There are a few things to consider when deciding if a zipper is necessary for your badminton kit bag. The first is the size of the bag. If the bag is large enough, then a zipper may not be necessary. A second consideration is how often you will be using the bag. If you are only using it for occasional tournaments, then a zipper might not be worth the extra expense. However, if you are using the bag on a daily basis, then a zipper can help keep all of your gear together and organized.
