Geau Sport was launched with the idea that tennis bags should transcend equipment transport, to be a coveted piece of gear. The Greenville, SC family-owned brand focuses on refined looks, durable materials and intelligent designs without overt branding or loud coloring. Their initial foray into the market—the Axiom 9-pack and Backpack—were impressive and lauded debuts. In fact, the response was so positive that several times during the past year they sold out of inventory. Building on that success, Geau has introduced three new bags to their expanding product line.
The Stance Tote ($150) has a sleek, modern appearance, but with the functionality needed for a dependable tennis bag. Capable of holding two frames with the handles exposed, the wide base and sturdy construction prevent the tote from slouching or tipping over. The main compartment, which has an internal padded sleeve and slide-in pocket, is secured by a magnetic lid for easy access and a clean exterior. The front face pocket has several felt-lined slots for protecting valuables, and also has a magnetic flap closure. An exterior slide-in pocket is perfect to hold a water bottle or can of balls.
