Great size bag for mounting off the floor tom (not too big) holds a few sticks, brushes, and mallets close at an easy reach. I use other stick bags too but I feel they are normally too big and bulky for having hanging off your drums (especially a 14" floor tom).

This small stick bag is just fine for occasional use, if you just want to pack a few pairs of sticks and maybe a pair of brushes or mallets. Not much space, but good enough for your basic trap playing. Not super sturdy, and the straps for hanging on the floor tom don't seem to be adjustable. Very basic, but if that's what you want/need, there you go.

        Comments about Vic Firth Essentials Stick Bag:

        I wanted a stick bag for a series of gigs where I need/want to be small and compact. This will force me to only bring what I need, and not the full range of extras I would normally bring to a gig. If you are subbing a gig and don't know what sticks, etc. you'll need, then this isn't for you. (And I always carry an extra-extra pair of sticks in my car anyway.)

            I'm playing different styles of music now which require brushes and cool rods as well as my traditional sticks. This bag keeps them neatly together and it's easy to transport.

                      I use three holders from Vic Firth. One is the double marching holder on one floor tom ( which can hold four pairs ) and this on the second floor tom. I also own the huge pro case that can hold all the sticks and mallets that I own and is probably is best used for storage for most people. These smaller bags can hang on your floor toms and not affect the resonance of the drum. This essentials bag will hold four pairs of sticks and small accessories . Pretty much all one needs on a daily basis and the price from Musicians Friend was well worth it.

                        Never had a stick bag before. Always just carried sticks, brushes, mallets, etc. loose or bound with rubber bands. This bag is super, has hooks and straps to attach to floor tom or wherever you need it. Very flexible solution to what I assume is a common problem. Most importantly, when you are transporting drums and sticks, makes it easy and a way to lose less sticks...

                          I gave it 5 stars because I haven't broke the zipper yet. I've had all VF bags and the big expensive one broke in no time. This one will hold 3 pairs, 4 pairs snug (5B). Nice to just toss in the car and go to practice.

                            Bought as a gift, but my friend was pretty stoked. Just big enough for a few pairs of sticks and brushes. He was happy with the hook straps to hang the bag. Every drummer needs a stick bag.

                            Great for holding 4-5 pairs of sticks (depending on size). The pockets on the one I got are deeper than what is pictured. The drum key loop doesn't hold most keys, only those that have large "wings". The floor tom straps can be troublesome to work with, but fits my 6-lug 16" tom fine.
                            Overall, great for storing the essentials.

                              If you need a great quality, enough room for 5 pairs of sticks without the bulk then this is it. Surely, we don't like hauling all our sticks to a gig. Arrived quickly and great value.

                                When I play gigs, I don't have a groupie so I travel light and I like to be able to set up quickly and simply. This stick bag is perfect for my uses. I don't need to carry my entire stick and brush inventory so I don't use my large stick bag, so it stays at home. This smaller bag is perfect for my uses. It even fits my smaller 14" x 14" floor tom without hitting the ground. When done, I just zip it and go. As far as I'm concerned it has no competition for the drummer on the go.

                                        I've been drumming for over 47 years and this is the perfect stick bag for a beginner to a pro.

                                          This small stick bag is just fine for occasional use, if you just want to pack a few pairs of sticks and maybe a pair of brushes or mallets. Not much space, but good enough for your basic trap playing. Not super sturdy, and the straps for hanging on the floor tom don't seem to be adjustable. Very basic, but if that's what you want/need, there you go.

                                            This is a great stick bag for hanging on the floor tom. It holds six pair of any size. Just what you need while playing.
