Our HEMA gear bag is designed to fit all of your training equipment. The bag includes two internal Velcro straps to keep your swords together, while the outside features two zippered pockets and padded backpack-style straps. This bag should be able to fit all of your gear if very carefully packed, but we recommend not packing your jacket so that it can dry out more easily.
I used to strain my neck with the duffle bags I would use to carry my gear to practice, now I just have the bag and it is 10 times more comfortable. I fit all of my hema gear including 2 longswords in here. The only thing that doesn't fit with all the rest of my gear is my big fencing jacket, which I just mount on the top. Stop using your duffle bags and get this bag, worth every penny.
First of all, I love the bag itself. It saw me through a tournament, had just enough gear pockets to make moving things around much less of a hassle. It protected my swords, which was great. However, when I went to pull it from the van on day #3, I heard a pop. One of the toggles for the backpack straps had burst. I didn't have much in it at the time; my longsword, my saber, and my arming sword and buckler. While that's definitely a replaceable piece, it was a little upsetting. Make sure you have spare buckles before you go somewhere the bag is needed! Other than that, I think it's a perfectly fine sword bag.
That can happen with a heavy load in the bags. We have worked with the manufacturer to upgrade the buckles on the next batch to be steel and be able to handle more weight.

This bag is HUGE! It fits my daughter’s long sword, her helmet, chest protector, shin guards, elbow/knee pads, gorget, gloves and STILL has room for much much more. The construction is top-notch, and the price was AMAZING. SUPER fast shipping. Thank you!!!
This is a great bag for folks that need to haul their own gear around. It has handles and straps to carry easily, velcro to secure swords inside, and can fit pretty much every feder and rapier I've tried (including long one). The top can be secured shorter with clips, or opened up to allow for even longer weapons (so long as you aren't flying with them). I've taken this to events and it fit everything but my heavy gambeson. The only downside is that this bag isn't very breathable in places with high humidity, so make sure to open it up if you're keeping gear in there after sparring. If you're looking for a sword sized bag that also has room to fit other gear, this is probably the most affordable and convenient bag. Obviously its not rigid, so make sure you protect blades if flying etc.
