Killspencer Racket Lots of folks will balk at spending this much on a backpack, but for those who enjoy lavishly high-end accessories, this one’s a head-turner.

Editor's Notes

September 25, 2019:

Several items on the list were no longer available, so we removed those. In our review of the existing items, we noted that while the Wilson Federer is a sharp-looking bag (Roger Federer’s signature adorns the exterior), reports suggest that the zippers don’t always remain locked, which can cause the backpack to open on its own sometimes.

We added four new items, including one designed specifically for females. The Glove It Women comes in a wide range of stylish designs, and users appear to appreciate its well-organized interior for making shoes, racquets, balls, and accessories easy to access.

Those who haul a ton of gear may favor the expansive Athletico Premier, which features multiple compartments, extra-large bottle holders, and a ventilated shoe area. It even has a built-in hook near the top, which can be used to hang the bag from a court fence, so you don’t have to toss it on the ground. The Lish Court Advantage, on the other hand, is a nice option for those who value a minimalist appearance.
