My Hula Hoop teacher (at the local class) has one bag like the one in the website and she can fit tons of hoops in there!

Since I need to travel by train to my HH in-person class, I'd like to sew myself a bag to carry on, smaller diameter because I have to fold the hoops, otherwise I won't survive the rush-hour train ride ;)

Great! I have not seen the bags with the open center. Seems like a good price too. Has anyone tried the aerial silks? It looks cool but I haven't signed up for any classes. They offer it in the next town over but I don't think I would be strong enough. I am not sure if they are going to open again after closing for COVID. Maybe someday.

Wow! That is exciting. What color and size are they? I just put mine in the back seat but I like the idea of starting them together in one place just so they don't fall all over. You will love twins. Here are some videos from Deanne Love on YouTube. I love all her videos. www.youtube.com/results?sear

The move that really helped me the most was the 180 transition. www.youtube.com/watch?v=aD0-

I hope you find these helpful. It is best to just pick a move you think you would like and start there. It can be overwhelming. Let us know what you are working on. We would love to cheer you on.

Oh, new hoops! What fun!
I still say make a bag, if you can sew. Otherwise just use a strap and join them together, then throw them in the back seat of the car!

Thank you, Joanne and DJ, for the ideas! I guess I didn't clarify what I meant by travel, lol, as air travel doesn't even occur to me. I'd just be putting them in a car for going to a park or someplace else to hoop than home. So just a way to transport them, and by them I mean the group of 4 I'll have soon. (I've got a dance hoop and two "twins" coming Monday, yay!! :))

Hi Sue,
I am glad you asked this question. I hope we can help. I love the suggestion from Joanne about sewing a case if you feel you need one. I am not sure how you are traveling and where. We have always traveled by car and I just throw them in the back seat so I never felt I needed a case. You can just unjoin them and coil it down. Then just use something to tie around it in four areas of the little circle. If you will be doing a lot of traveling, then get velcro straps to go on them. When you get there, uncoil them and reattach so they don't get warped. I have seen people do this and then strap them to their backpack. I love that you are taking your hoops with you. Have fun and let us know where you go.

Hi Sue,
I have a weighted hoop that can be taken apart into six pieces. That is the one I travel with. It is heavier, but is my preferred hoop (as I mostly waist hoop anyway). That said, I only take it when we travel by car. It would add too much weight and Still take up too much room in my small suitcase, to bother taking with me when I fly.
You can get hoops that can be pulled apart at the join, and coiled into a smaller unit for easier transportation. But then it can take a while for them to regain their “roundness” once you return them to their original size.
I will try to remember to post a couple of photos later to show what I mean. (Everyone else is still asleep right now, and I don’t want to wake them byrummaging around...)

All that aside, I think it would be fairly easy to make a carrying bag, if you have some sewing skills. Hit the thrift store and buy an old duvet cover. I did this and made my daughter a four foot diameter cover for a circular chair she has. Basically, I cut two huge circles, and then used the zipper from the duvet cover for the zipper on the side of the chair cover. It was pretty basic sewing and worked a charm! You could easily fashion a carrying handle or shoulder strap out of the scraps.

I'm curious, how do you travel with your hoops? Do you have a "hoop cozy", as I've seen a few videos and for sale, or do you have some other method for carrying them around?

I just don't want to spend 55 bucks on something I may be able to make myself, lol!
