First Look: Wilson Federer Elite 12 Pack Bag

rsThe new bag that Roger Federer debuted in Basel last week is now available at Tennis Warehouse, and boy is this thing SWEET! It’s unique “torpedo-style” design maximizes storage space and allows for the bag to be used both laying down or standing up. Even the most elite players will find there to be plenty of storage and protection with all the technology and features that Wilson has packed into it.

So, how exactly did Wilson maximize the capacity and functionality of the bag? Instead of using three main compartments (like most extra large racquet bags), they’ve placed the third pocket underneath the area where your racquet handles will sit below one of the two main compartments. This pocket is accessed from the side of the bag and is great for storing shoes, cans of balls or any of your other gear.

Wilson’s new Thermoguard 2.0 technology.

The bag also features Wilson’s new climate-protection technology, Thermoguard 2.0. Along with the standard metallic-looking lining that comes in most high-end racquet bags, it also includes a specially designed desiccant pack and a pocket to place it in to wick extra moisture away from your equipment. Similar to moisture-absorbing packets you see in the packaging of many common household products, the desiccant pack offers twice the level of moisture-protection compared to regular Thermoguard technology.

In addition to the space-saving third compartment and improved moisture defense, the bag is made of super high quality, heavy duty 900D Ballistec fabric to hold up to the rigors of travel. EVA padded shoulder straps and back panel make carrying the bag over your shoulder or as a backpack easy and comfortable. Furthermore, retractable grab handles won’t distract from the sleek-modern look of the bag.

Complete with Roger Federer‘s endorsement AND signature, the new Wilson Federer Elite 12 Pack Bag is sure to offer the protection, capacity and durability for any level of player!
