The SmartBags Ice! The goal was to develop a bag for both the recreational and the competitive speed skater. The skates are stored inside the bag, safe and tidy, thanks to the cut-resistant neoprene skate compartments on both sides. The drying cloth is connected directly to the bag using a clip and has its own compartment. The bag features firm grips and handles for the backpack mode. The elastic bands for skate guards and the helmet net come in handy too: Plenty of space left for clothing!
