The Tyhoon8 dragonboat paddle bag is one of the nicest bags I have seen around and offers many colours and sizes. As I own one myself and have seen these bags in the dragonboat market, it’s safe to say these bags are good quality and definitely very practical for dragonboaters. Though, not everyone will want one of these paddle bags. The people who would want one, has to meet three strict criteria in order to qualify in my opinion for wanting to purchase. First, they must be dragonboaters. Second, they must be dragonboaters who own paddles. And third, they must be dragonboaters who own paddles who commute. Because without these three-tiers of qualification, you really wouldn’t be very interested in a bag like this and hence why you are reading this.
Over the years, Typhoon8 dragonboat paddle bags have evolved and changed with the market. Currently Typhoon8 offers a range of dragonboat paddle bags:
- The Basic Dragonboat Paddle Bag
- Standard Dragon Boat Paddle Bag
- Full Length Multi-Paddle Bag
The Basic Dragonboat Paddle Bag
This is the really basic, budget dragonboat paddle bag. It does the job to hold your paddle and allows you to carry it on your back. The only downside is that it doesn’t cover your paddle completely so if you happen to hit your paddle into something it will mostly likely dent. The bag comes with an adjustable Velcro shoulder strap and various colours to choose from:
- Grey with Red Trim
- Grey with Orange Trim
- Grey with Lime Green Trim
- Grey with Pink Trim
Standard Dragonboat Paddle Bag
This is the full length dragon boat paddle bag, which holds a single dragonboat paddle. There are additional pockets for carrying your wallet and keys and also a water bottle holder as well.
What makes this bag different is it has a Chinese “Dragon Boat” character embroidered onto the shoulder strap and each zipper has the Typhoon8 logo on it. There are also many colours to choose from:
- Black with Red Trim
- Black with Orange
- Black With Lime
- Black With Pink Trim
- All Black
Full Length Multi-Paddle Bag
As the name suggests this dragonboat paddle bag can hold up to multiple paddles of 1-2 paddles in the new Black and Camo colours. The original Grey multi-paddle bag could store up to 3 paddles. This bag was designed to be the larger version of the standard dragonboat paddle bag, allowing more room for storing other items, such as towels and shoes.
