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…

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!

I purchased the Gofit extreme sandbag from Groupon and again Groupon fucked up! It specifically states in the Groupon that it comes with a DVD which was a big reason I purchased it, as I have no idea what to do with it (thank God for YouTube!) i contacted Gofit and they claim there is no dvd there was supposed to be a workout poster, but they don’t have that either and they offered to send me a free tshirt to make up for it. When I told them I was an XXL they said sorry we only have XL 😒😒😒😒

WTF!

That will not discourage me! I will still figure out how to add this to my Crossfit cardio circuit!
