Anyone growing up in the 1980s

will remember the immense

sense of style that came with

ownership of a Head sports bag.

We loved revisiting that school

playground cool with their 45L

Tour Swimming Bag.

It’s a roomy sports bag with a

large main compartment for swim

kit and training aids, waterproof

end compartments, small zipped

out pocket for keys and cards and

detachable shoulder strap. Cool.
