Gym Gear: Oakley Icon 3 Backpack

IMG_5107
I have to say it is made extremely well! Furthermore; it fits really well on my back and is super comfortable! For a guy who is 6′ 270lbs that wears a 3XL jacket it fits remarkably well!

However; I absolutely hate the pocket configuration! Whomever designed the inside of the bag deserves a giant punch in the face and should refund me half my money as this bag is expensive!

The outside look of the bag is awesome it looks badass and the 3 buckle system is cool!

The media pocket on top not really a media pocket, but a felt lined pocket is great for sunglasses or as I use it for change!

The inside configuration starts off not bad, a padded pocket for your laptop or tablet! Awesome! But then the front configuration has some stupid bullshit Velcro folded flaps and the media pockets inside are much too small for anything! There are no pen or pencil slides and nowhere to put a shaker bottle or water bottle! There are two small side pockets but they are too small to be practical. They are good for snacks or some small items on both sides.

Maybe the bag will grow on me, but right now I am missing my military rucksack…

**Update** February 26th 2015

The bag is starting to grow on me as I see which way I can pack it. However; Oakley should take note of six pack fitness! 


Product Review: Oakley Stretch-fit Hats

20130829-202252.jpg
METAL GAS CAN CAP
RED LINE
91220-465
Mesh lining and moisture wicking material make this a performance piece.

The metal gas can cap is really comfortable and well made! The o is larger than I thought it would be, but it is nicely made and attached securely. I have been really sweating in it at the gym and it dries very quickly! I am really happy with this hat.

The inside of the hat is lined with a weird material and maybe that has something to do with it drying quickly!

These 2 hats are a little different. They are a little smaller and a little tighter and sit higher on my head, there is a little gap between the hat and my ears. They take a little getting used to. But they do hold up well as I have washed them numerous times to get the salt marks off. They take a little longer to dry.


Product Review: Oakley Toomey Pants Warmups

20130829-201919.jpg
Designed as a warm–up layer, the Toomey Pants are ideal for cold–temperature workouts and keeping muscles loose before competition. The multi–sport athlete who wants to train day and night benefits from UV–protective fabric and reflective features that stand out, and side pockets keep valuables easily accessible. Made with an elastic waist and drawstring, these versatile pants fit just right, morning to night.
Reflective elements provide high visibility in low light

It’s starting to get cooler! Stay tuned for this review and the Under Armour pants I previously ordered already listed here!

They look like they run small, I may have to return them for a larger size.

The quality of the pants is amazing! they are thick and well made, almost like a neoprene material. The only gripe I have is the stripes and Oakley name are screen printed and with neoprene like material they are surely soon wear off, leaving the clothes looking like a generic product. I would have liked to see embroidery at least on the name and logo!

**Update**
Unfortunately, I had to send them back because they ran too small, but you can see the quality was second to none!
