This bag is much bigger than I thought with all sorts of pockets, mesh pockets, etc. It expands to fit all my items. I am very excited to use it at my next race!
I love the backpack and its lots of compartments, but I was disappointed at the quality of the inner bag zipper. At the first try to put the wet towel inside the bag the zipper just ripped apart at the seams.

Just received this bag in the mail. It looks like it will be great for tri's. I used to have to bring a few bags when I was using a smaller back-pack, but now I should be able to fit everything comfortably for race day. Problem is that I wanted an everyday gym/pool bag and this is way to much for that. Not even sure it will fit in the locker. It looked the same size as the other tyr swim bag, but should have checked the dimensions - this thing could have an extendable handle and wheels!
Transition Back Pack

It is a good pack. I bought it for a friend. I have one and have used it for the past 2 years and it is as good as the day I got it. Only issue would be that it needs some more outside pockets to put small things.
This is a great bag. big enough for everything you need. 2 big inside compartments for shoes, a bag for wet/dirty stuff (a sleeveless wetsuit fits in there kind of snug), a smaller inside compartment for gloves, goggles or other things that size and another bigger compartment for fins , clothes or whatever. The outside is just as nice. A big compartment on the bottom for a wetsuit or other clothes. 2 mesh bottle holders and 2 smaller compartments for food, gu packs or iPod. The helmet holder rocks and there is another mesh compartment behind that. This is a really great bag. I'm basing my judgments on this bag alone; I’ve never owned another bag before.
Tyr transition backpack
This has become my favorite way to carry my sports-related items. It is large and has an expandable section on the bottom of the bag to store additional things if you need the extra space. If you do not need the space, it just stays compressed. This backpack is much easier for me to carry than those large swim bags I used to haul around. The only complaint I have is that I wish the small outside pockets had a better way to stay shut other than Velcro. Zippers would provide more security from losing the small items stored in these pockets. Still, when this bag wears out, I will order another just like it.
