Racing is a glamorous hobby full of beautiful sights, sounds and speed. But toting the required gear around certainly isn't.

Funny... I've been using the same Specialized gear bag for my XC and road riding stuff since the mid 90's. 

DH gear is closer to moto and driving gear as far as taking up space, so that's been more of a challenge.

A friend who works in the photo biz passed along nice words about Think Tank's bags.
