Top 11 Best Chess Bags For Storage And Travel

A travel chess bag can be very useful and effective. A travel chess bag makes it a lot easier to carry your board, clock, pieces, and other equipment. This is especially important for tournament players in the United States. In Europe, tournaments provide players with all necessary equipment.

The deluxe chess bag is my recommended way to carry a complete chess set and clock. Almost any club size chess set or even wooden chess set will fit along with a roll-up board.
