Recommendation: The “Classic Court Traveler” pickleball bag is great for transporting your pickleball gear. It can hold 3 paddles and multiple pickleball related items. The bag itself is very durable and also, is very comfortable to carry.
I think the goal of being “vintage” yet functional has been achieved with this item. The bag has great storage capabilities, but also, has the style factor. The bag is definitely more stylish than your standard athletic bag. A huge positive is that the item is animal friendly and cruelty free. These are sure to turn heads on the pickleball courts!
The sunglasses are very sleek looking and I am surprised at how well they held up while playing. They were very comfortable to wear and stayed in place even with heavy sweat in the FL heat. I also used these glasses to run in, and they functioned great for that as well. Outside of being functionally great for blocking the sun during athletic endeavors, these are very stylish and could be worn around town outside of the courts. I always enjoy an item that has dual purpose! They come in a variety of colors, which can be found on their website.
Both of these items were really high quality and I believe are fairly priced. They shipped quickly and their have been very responsive as well. I really enjoy not only the style of these items, but the functionality as well.
