- King Kong
I decided to try this backpack because I've always had a beef with storing my lifters in the main compartment. Shoes dominate the space, and they need air circulation to dry out. My old backpack had a shoe specific pocket which I initially thought was a great idea until I realized it still limited the space for all my other gear. Plus my bag stunk after awhile. I've had this bag for a month now and it appears like it's going to solve that issue. The material seems sturdy and durable, and the strap and buckle that secures the shoes is tough as ****. I actually like the dual water-bottle pockets because they are vented and work great for holding things like sweaty wrist wraps and gymnastic grips. The top pocket is on the small side, but perfect for your keys, phone and wallet. The inner top pocket is also a bit tight and barely fits my rope, but it's workable. The only issue I have is that the bag tapers towards the top, so the storage space is tighter at the top than the bottom which could be limiting come winter when I want to carry cold weather clothing. I'd like to see some higher-gauge zippers too because sometimes you have to finagle the zipper to get it in line before you pull. Overall, after shopping around for a few weeks and weighing multiple backpack options, I'm very happy I went with the King Kong!
Well made so far so good
I just recieved my backpack 2. I must say since i own there original duffel I knew the quality of the bag would be good. My duffel has held up for years with the exception of the strap rusting out. The rest of the bag looks brand new. The one con I have about the backpack is if it going to be a gym bag and you market it as such. Why put a laptop sleeve in it? Also I would only make the one side a waterbottle compartment and maybe turn the otherside into 1 long zipper compartnent or make 2 smaller zipper compartment. Most people dont carry two water bottles. Well thats just my two cents take it for what it is worth.
I love the size of this backpack. It has more than enough space for all my gym stuff without being too bulky. I had a duffle bag before, but I love the freedom this backpack allows for my arms.
I’ve gone through a lot of backpacks trying to find the perfect one and I finally found it! I can fit all of my gym gear and my clothes for work in one bag. I’m very pleased with my purchase!
