Massive in size, the [mageProductLink sku="14764-001-ns" title=""]Shuttle Wheeled Gear Bag [/mageProductLink]features a plethora of compartments, but what we like most are the separate boots and helmet sections at either end. Both have small perforated areas to allow the sweaty gear to air out. The main closure is a U-shape and features two zippered pouches, one is full mesh, again good for breathability. Inside against the sidewalls are three more mesh elastic storage compartments. Storing boots and a helmet does eat into the center compartment; however, the bag is pretty deep and provides plenty of room to stack pants, a jersey and other gear in the main section. The bright blue interior makes it easier to find your gear. Outside there's two zippered compartments to store smaller items. Other than the bottom the bag isn't really reinforced, so it makes it rather floppy when not filled, but it also makes it much easier to compress into tight areas or store away when not in use. The long retractable handle and large, sturdy wheels make it easy to drag the bag through airports or from pit to pit.

It might be the priciest of the three, but the [mageProductLink sku="tl-603003220" title=""]Troy Lee Wheeled Gear Bag[/mageProductLink] delivers in size, functionality, and features. The largest of the three bags, this bag sports a large micro-fleece lined side compartment to house your moto helmet and an even bigger boot compartment at the opposite end with large rubber mesh panels for ventilation. The main opening flap has three pockets, one of which is a fleece-lined storage area to keep 3-4 pairs of goggles safe and secure. The main storage area is very spacious and the rigid sides of the bag help it keep its shape making it easy to dig around for your gear. There are two zippered storage compartments inside, one of which is mesh to keep sweaty gear separated from fresh gear. Unlike the other two bags which have colored interior to help you find your items in low light conditions, this bag's interior is all black. The bag comes with dividers in the main area to organize your gear, however the dividers can be a little annoying to deal with-thankfully they are Velcro so you can adjust them or completely remove them if desired.

One of the most annoying things about air travel is trying to identify your bag from everyone else's in the luggage carrousel-that won't be a problem with the [mageProductLink sku="254-3512-0154" title=""]Hi-Viz Wheeled Gear Bag[/mageProductLink] from American Kargo. This bag features one large main storage compartment, has two mesh pockets under the lid, and two zippered pouches inside. If you carry a lot of goggles this bag is great because there's a micro-fleece lined compartment with adjustable dividers to fit up to six pairs of goggles. The light grey interior can be zipped out for cleaning after extremely stanky moto sessions. While this bag doesn't have separate helmet and boot compartments you can fit both into the main section along with riding pants, a couple jerseys and what not. A very convenient feature is the 22"x 22" padded changing mat that you can lay next to the bag as you swap your boots for street shoes. Another unique feature that the other two bags don't offer is the ability to add a customizable Velcro number plate (sold separately) to the exterior.
