The Patent-Pending Gear-Klip, exclusively designed for Easton Baseball/Fastpitch backpacks, allows players to hang their gloves, helmets, cleats, and other gear on the outside of the backpack. This unique feature conserves valuable interior storage space and prevents dirt and odor from cleats and gloves from entering the main storage area of the bag.
