2015 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Transition Bags

Nathan Flight Control Bag


$160, Nathansports.com
The draw: Travel-ready

Flying to races is made simpler with this bag, which fits inside an airplane’s overhead bin. It features one main top-loading compartment, two side mesh pockets and a mesh pocket underneath, which pops out to hold a helmet (it has no dedicated wetsuit pocket). In addition to holding the essentials, the lightweight bag, with 45 liters of storage capacity, includes some thoughtful details, such as a protective iPad pocket, a triathlon gear list, a quote from (Nathan-sponsored) pro Andy Potts and Velcro straps to hold a bike pump.
