The big companies don't have weightlifters or powerlifters on staff designing packs for your gear, but we do.
I've bought every backpack designed for the gym and all were found lacking.
Where do I put my belt?
My shoes are supposed to fit where?
So at 1Kilo we decided to solve that problem.
I went to a custom backpack designer who has competed in functional fitness, weightlifting, and powerlifting. The result is the Lifter's Pack.
With spaces for the things you need (shoes, belt, sleeves, etc) and none for the things you don't (no one needs their laptop at the gym), this backpack is the most complete one created for real lifters.
-Dedicated shoe pocket
-Belt loops on the outside
-Ventilated interior pockets
-Lay flat, full zip to access all your stuff
