You may have seen their beautiful bags on the courts, but probably never heard of the brand, at least I hadn’t – until now.
VESSEL began as a company that originally catered to golfers, making luxury golf bags and travel bags and other accessories. But, now, they also have the fabulous “Baseline Collection” just for us tennis players – and it’s a winner! VESSEL carries the entire Baseline Collection on their website and on their Amazon page (use your Amazon gift cards!) and both come with FREE shipping within the US. And the prices are amazing for the quality of craftsmanship, ranging $215 to $265
Each VESSEL racquet bag is crafted using the highest quality microsuede synthetic leather and features waterproof, insulated and thermal-lined compartments that protect your equipment from the elements. There are different styles to choose from as well – the tote, backpack, and multi-racquet bag which can be carried as a backpack or duffle – each bearing a sleek V-shaped logo made to represent a vessel, which, by definition carries its treasure and purpose from one destination to another.
That being said, let’s check out these beautiful bags!
The Baseline Racquet Bag
The Baseline Racquet Bag is my absolute favorite! It has tons of storage for players like me who bring everything but the kitchen sink to the courts, lol! It’s super spacious, with room for up to six racquets, as two can be carried in a thermal-insulated compartment and four in the main compartment which can also be used for clothes an/or other essentials. The shoe compartment is waterproof and ventilated, all zippers are waterproof, and your water bottle will stay cool in the special thermal-lined water bottle pocket, one of four exterior pockets in this design. The shoulder straps can also be removed for carrying by hand.
It can be carried two ways, too – by using the handle or being worn on your back when the padded shoulder straps are attached.
The Baseline Racquet Bag comes in 4 colors: Black Tech, Grey Tech, and two-tone Neo Mint and Rose Gold (my fave color combo).
The Baseline Tennis Tote
For those who prefer a tote, there is the Baseline Tennis Tote, made from the highest-quality microsuede synthetic leather and waterproof lining. There is a spacious main compartment for your clothes, towels and other essentials, as well as a separate compartment that can hold up to two racquets. There is even a nifty drawstring nylon shoe bag so that your tennies won’t get your stuff dirty.
There are also three exterior and five interior pockets, and even a “trolly sleeve” so you can easily carry this tote on top of your suitcase when you travel.
The Baseline Tennis Tote comes in four colors: Black Pebbled, Stone Pebbled, Neo Mint and Rose Gold.
The Baseline Tennis Backpack
The Baseline Tennis Backpack is the tennis version of VESSEL’s best-selling backpack. Its durable construction includes an exterior thermal-lined racquet compartment that holds up to two racquets and two exterior expandable pockets with magnetic closure and a quick-access front pocket. The interior boasts a spacious compartment with four interior pockets, two of which are velour-lined to safely store your valuables. On the bottom is a zippered ventilated shoe compartment.
The Baseline Tennis Backpack comes in two colors: Black Tech and Grey Tech.
