I Love My New King Kong Gym Bag

Just What’s in my King Kong Gym Bag?

I adore my new King Kong bag. After two years of basic black, this grey is appealing and handsome. Of far more importance (I’m pretty hard on my gym bags), the new model is tougher, seems to be constructed of slightly thicker material, with stronger zippers. I like the overall feel of the King Kong bag. Even empty it seemed to sit up straighter.  And these sturdier zippers; this is a big deal for me, as I can easily try to jam more into a pocket than is intended. As far as my right shoulder is concerned, padding on the shoulder strap has been improved, too.

My only quibble with the set-up are the two pockets designed for sweaty clothes, knee sleeves, etc. I don’t utilize them in this way (I wear my sweaty clothes out the door, or toss them into the car), so the interior of the bag has extra material from those pockets getting in the way of my three pair of shoes! A little thing to me; I’m confident many people use those pockets in the manner they were intended.


Everything I could possible need for an expedition to CrossFit fits into my King Kong bag. Believe it or not, mine contains all this:


Reebok Nano shoes, Reebok Power shoes, Nike Romaleos Oly shoes, Rehband knee sleeves, Schiek lifting belt, NutriForce Creatine, NutriForce Carnosyn Beta-Alanine, NutriForce Glutamine, NutriForce BCAA, Shootnshake Scoop, half dozen packets BioFreeze, “Bacon” knee socks, Rogue knee socks, compression knee socks from Hylete, Stronger RX gloves, Strength wrist wraps, Infidel wrist wraps, BlenderBottle, Progenex Recovery, Vitargo, Lara, Rx and Quest Bars, FringeSports One-Fit Wonder Gloves, Elite Fitness elbow sleeves, SmartShake shaker, Schiek heavy-dute wrist wraps, two Rumble Roller Beastie balls, cloth athletic tape, random packets of BCAA powder.

Am I missing anything?
