    Just one more question, is 100L big enough for wing/drysuit/rockboots and regs? I'm looking at the 100L lomo bag just because its good for price and its go backstrap straps on.

    The eaglecreek looks nice, but its a little bit pricey, and I can't find anywhere that sells the akona in the UK

    Has wheels but only weights 2 kg so much better than a suit case style bag.

    I think that range has been replaced by "Migrate" they are not cheap but I cant see why I wont get anoter 10 years out of it at the moment...
    Is your location the three bridges in crawley? If so you're just down the road from me.

    I have an old 120l bag from Northern Diver which easily takes everything dive related - including an O3 neoprene suit & jet fins - so I imagine 100l will be OK. SDS ( https://www.sdswatersports.co.uk/ )sell Akona gear - I have some of their bags and they are pretty good

    I've gone for the Lomo, just because its 50 quid and has backstraps. Hopefully it will be alright

    The akona's look nice and it will be one for me to remember if I suddenly start travelling.

    I'm sure it'll be alright :-)
    We have four of the 40L holdall drybags - two for drysuits, one for regs and one for most of the rest of our gear. Just realised they're six years old and still in great nick!

    Arrived today and I’ve managed to wing, drysuit, regs and rock boots in. Mask, computer fins etc are all in a mesh bag ready to go on a boat anyway, but I think with some careful packing I could fit everything except the fins in. So for £50 I’m pretty happy

    Hard case suitcase for dive gear that doesn't have any dive branding on it. Works great for travel. I wouldn't have anything without wheels.
    For UK stuff I have a Beaver multibag (a copy of an old Scubapro classic dive bag) that takes abuse.
    And a Big LGBTQ+ Rainbow ikea bag that Iain would probably pop a knocker if he saw (if he wasn't banned from here).
    I have nothing to do with BSAC any more apart from being a muggle member. So anything I write on here is likely to be complete bollocks. Hooray!

    I use a Scubapro twin bag that's over 20 years old.
    Taken all over the place including Pacific islands, Indian ocean, Atlantic islands, Hong Kong, Caribbean, and Med.
    Off to Indonesia soon just starting to pack it
    Zips still good, just starting to delaminate the on the material.
    Always goes inside a Gelert rucksack cover which is a snug fit for flights.
    After having items pinched from a pocket.
