Shout Out To King Kong

screen-shot-2015-06-02-at-2.02.37-pm

As a token of our respect and appreciation, not only for their hard work in the gym, but also for their time as loyal users of our site, we wanted to send each BTWB user who placed in the Top 20 of their Open region a gift. The fittest athletes in the world require the best equipment in the world. More Rogue gear? That would’ve been to easy. Unfortunately, every CrossFitter in the world, especially the serious competitors, has their fill of Rogue gear already.

King Kong Apparel

In search of the most appropriate gift out there, I came across King Kong Apparel. Upon purchasing a few items for personal use, I immediately fell in love with their products, especially the 3.0 bag.  That’s saying a lot, especially considering my days as a youth soccer player. To say I’ve had my fair share of experience with lugging around big bags would be an understatement. The 3.0 bag was different; it was something we HAD to give to our users, too. We reached out to King Kong with our idea, and they welcomed us with open arms. We are super excited. It’s not every day you get to collaborate with the best. Some companies do gym equipment best. Others specialize in shirts and apparel. Several are competing for the top of the jump rope mound. In our opinion, King Kong’s 3.0 bag takes the cake when it comes to bags.

Features

Their 3.0 bag is tough, spacious, and easy on the eye. The full feature list includes:

  • Heavy-duty 1000D nylon construction – Tough and durable, the bag has been masterfully stitched with nylon thread to ensure it lasts the distance.
  • Dual Shoe Compartment – Unique dual shoe compartment design. Space for lifting shoes, runners, vibrams etc. Now fully constructed with water-resistant 1000D nylon construction which doubles as a wet bag for used towels, etc.
  • Durable Zippers – Bomb-proof #10 YKK zippers.
  • Adjustable, extra wide (2inch/5cm) nylon shoulder strap with reversible ‘King Kong’ shoulder pad
  • Mobility Pouch – Specially designed “mobility-pouch” for storing lacrosse balls and other mobility and stretching gear.
  • Eyelets – Signature ‘King Kong’ eyelets ensure fresh air circulates through your equipment and clothing.

My biggest complaint about the bag is I can’t decide which compartment I want to hold my voodoo floss band or my athletic tape. #crossfitproblems

Reception

We think the King Kong bags are awesome, and, so far, so do our Regional representatives. Many have turned to social media to show some love for the 3.0 bag. Some of the posts can be viewed below.
