Best Gifts for Squash Players: Racquet Bags & Eyeguards
Squash Racquet Bags
Squash racquet bags make great gifts: every squash player needs one and you don't have to try them on! When choosing the right bag you want something that has enough room, is comfortable and can store smaller things separately.
Here are some of our favorites for 2014:
Harrow Dynasty Racquet Bag
Perfect for the serious player, this racquet bag has a temperature-protected section just for racquets to shield them from heat and keep them in perfect playing condition. The padded, adjustable shoulder strap is comfortable and removable. Plus, this racquet bag has padded handles if your player prefers to grab and go. The Harrow Dynasty Racquet bag has a variety of sections for convenient storage: an additional zippered section large enough to fit more racquets, two zippered tunnels for shoes or wet gear, and a side, zippered section for storing smaller, personal items. Fits 9 racquets.
Tecnifibre Absolute Green 12 Racquet Squash Bag
If you need a bag that holds 12 racquets, check out the Tecnifibre Absolute Green 12 Racquet Squash Bag. Additional zippered compartments include a special protected space for eyeguards, an extra clothes section, smaller accessories compartment, separate shoe compartment and 3 neoprene pockets to hold 3 squash balls. There are ventilated compartments to help your wet items to dry faster. The straps are padded and adjustable.
Tecnifibre Absolute Green Squash Backpack
If a backpack is preferable then the Tecnifibre Absolute Green Squash Backpack is a winner. It has a separate racquet section, pockets for extra balls, a protected space for eyeguards, zippered shoe tunnel on the bottom and an elastic pocket on the side for a water bottle or can of balls. The straps are perfectly padded and adjustable for enhanced comfort.
Harrow Havoc Backpack
The Harrow Havoc Backpack comes in a variety of colors: black/grey, black/green, black/pink/black/royal (bluish-purple). It holds two squash racquets in the back section, zippered side compartments for accessories, bottom section for shoes, and mesh pockets for water bottles or balls. The straps are padded for comfort and mesh for breathability.
Squash eyeguards may all look alike, but they are not. You want something durable (anti-scratch), comfortable, and, of course, something that will protect the eyes from elbows and balls traveling at high speeds.
Harrow's Rudy Project Kerosene eyeguards
These are everything you could ever want in a pair of eyeguards. The arms and nose piece are adjustable for a better fit. The QuickChange™ interchangeable lens system lets you easily and quickly change lenses (important: extra lenses are not included). The lenses are lightweight with anti-scratch treatment and a replacement lens guarantee. The Harrow's Rudy Project Kerosene eyeguard lenses also get a hydrophobic treatment that facilitates runoff of water droplets from the surface of the lens so sweat or water will not affect your vision.
Wilson nVue Eyeguards
Anti-scratch lenses provide clear vision and ventilation holes reduce fogging. The arms are soft and bendy so they won't slip off. The nose bridge is padded and adjustable for superior comfort. The Wilson nVue Eyeguards are approved by the USA Racquetball Association and United States Squash Racquets Association for use in all sanctioned tournaments.
Ektelon RX Flips Eyeguards
These innovative Ektelon RX Flips Eyeguards come with outer lenses that flip up and out of the way for easy ventilation. The frame is lightweight and comfortable. If you wear glasses regularly then you will be happy to hear that a prescription adaptable lens insert included.
