LOUISIVILLE , KY – For years, baseball and softball catchers everywhere have had to cram shin guards and chest protectors in bat bags and duffels that don’t quite hold everything. In fact, many catchers have become as adept at carrying an over-stuffed duffel bag with a broken zipper as they are at smothering a pitch in the dirt.

Thanks to a new travel product from Louisville Slugger ® , catchers everywhere can stop cramming and keep their gear as organized as their pitch signs. The Louisville Slugger Catcher’s Gear Locker Back Pack brings the convenience, durability and organization found in similar locker bags to the work horse behind the plate.

From the stylish look to the compact organization of the back pack, when scouts, opponents and fans see a catcher arrive carrying his equipment in the Louisville Slugger Catcher’s Gear Locker Back Pack, they’ll all say the same thing:

“That catcher came ready to play.”

The Louisville Slugger Catcher’s Gear Locker Back Pack uses patented and patent-pending technology from Louisville Slugger’s famed research and development staff to keep catchers on the move and ready to go. The extra durable 600 Denier polyester makes the back pack unit strong and durable. The Rip Stop nylon accents give it the “ballplayer” look for style.

Each Catcher’s Gear Locker Back Pack (CGBPK) features two exterior removable shin guard sleeves, exterior clips for attaching the chest protector, two side bat holsters, a main locker compartment for a helmet, mitt and miscellaneous equipment, expandable drop pockets for added storage capacity, three front pockets for valuables and accessories, a padded back and ergonomic shoulder straps for a comfortable carry, a mesh-lined internal sleeve and durable fence clips and carry handles. The unit measures 14” long, 13” wide and 19” tall and comes in black, navy, scarlet and royal color choices.
