Shock Doctor Power Dry Hockey Bag

The folks at Shock Doctor have officially revolutionized the hockey bag business!

PowerDryCoreGearBagOver the past several weeks, I have been using the Shock Doctor Power Dry hockey bag.

Admittedly, I was a skeptic of this technology at first.

However,the Power Dry bag provides a great method of carrying (complete with wheels) and protecting your equipment, while including a system to dry, deodorize and keep your gear fresh.

The Shock Doctor bag accomplishes this through a patented airflow technology that combines the bag with a blower system (sold separately). The system provides not only controlled heat and airflow throughout the bag, but also utilizes ozone technology to deodorize the equipment at the same time.

Cool stuff… but does it really work?

How Ozone Works

Ozone is a natural substance that kills growth such as bacteria, mold, mildew, and fungus from sporting equipment. Once you place your equipment in the system, the ozone is released and attaches to airborne and surface contaminants. It destroys them and then reverts to pure oxygen. Ozone oxidizes impurities in the air, which destroys mildew and mold.

Other Uses For Power Dry Technology

PowerDryOctopusAttachmentIn addition to being able to quickly dry and deodorize your equipment in the bag, there are very cool attachments (sold separately) that allow you to dry your skates, gloves, helmet etc. outside of the bag using the Power Dry Octopus Attachment.

The Octopus attachment (seen on the right) will also come in very useful for drying those winter boots and gloves that get wet from use in rain or snow.

To Buy or Not To Buy

While this technology may seem unnecessary to some, it is certainly very convenient for tournaments to quickly dry equipment between games and for those who may not have warm space to dry equipment without stinking up the entire house between games!

The Shock Doctor Power Dry system is certainly technology that provides value and does what it says it will do.  The Large bag is necessary for a full set of adult hockey equipment and the drying/deodorizing process can take a couple of hours. If you’re worried about the noise of the blower, don’t be. That was a concern of mine too and it is honestly much quieter than a hair dryer.

That said, the versatility of the Power Dry system to work for other sports gear as well as household uses makes it more valuable than just a “Hockey Bag”.

The Power Dry System can be purchased on for $200.00 (including bag and blower) or the bag can be purchased separatley from Total Hockey for $79.99. Click here now to go to

    these bags are great, older models had wheel issues but the customer service is great! recommend with AAAA rating.

    too expensive unless they are on clearance. so search for a deal!

    One trick you might wanna try to deodorize/sanitize your pads before you put them in your Shock Doctor Power Dry Hockey Bag is by using Vodka. It’s a quick and easy way to not only get your pads clean, but it will help aid in the removal the stench. Pro players in Russia (and I’m sure America too) have used this trick for years. Let me know if it worked for yours too!

    I wonder if that’s one of the reason that people don’t post comments? That even though you might like what someone writes, you’re not sure how to reply?

    The ozoneing caused my son to get a bad rash in all his sweat areas on his body, be carefully some people are allergic to it.
    and we found the added heat when drying the equipment broke down the plastic, rubber, on his equipment, made it hard and brittle long before it’s time
    We have since Purchased a drylocker hockey bag, it works great,no added heat or chemicals and dries in the bag with no odor released from it.
    Best product we have ever bought.
