Generation Iron KNKG Backpack Review

A versatile piece of equipment to transport your gym gear

When it comes to going in the gym, you don’t want to carry all of your belongings by hand. Your weightlifting belt, your shaker bottle, maybe some weightlifting shoes, plus your wrist straps and wrist wraps take up space, and it is too much to carry all of that in at once. Now that you see the problem, the solution would be to get a gym bag to put your belongings in. However, duffel bags can be a lot to carry, which is where backpacks come into play, and luckily Generation Iron has teamed up with KNKG to deliver the best backpack for all of your gym gear needs.

Let’s take a deep dive into the Generation Iron x KNKG Backpack.

KNKG Apparel Origins

KNKG Apparel was founded in 2011 with the idea to make the most functional gym bag while still being of the highest quality so athletes everywhere never had to worry about their bags. By working to reinvent the vision of what a good gym bag is, KNKG challenged the status quo and successfully put top tier products on the market. Valuing intelligence, performance, and community, KNKG seeks to better the lives of their consumers by giving them gear that works for their benefit only.

Now, Generation Iron and KNKG have teamed up to give you the best bags on the market for a limited time only.

How is it Different?

Generation Iron x KNKG

First and Foremost, when it comes to comparing the Generation Iron x KNKG Backpack to other KNKG bags, there are a few things to look at. While much of the material is the same, the main difference is the unique weightlifting belt attachment that can be found on the Generation Iron x KNKG Backpack. This bag can fit a belt up to 6.3″/16cm wide. The belt can loop fully around this bag. And yes! Lever belts will work with this bag. This feature allows the bag to be used as normal, but you can also consider carrying a pretty hefty lifting belt on the outside. Other things that make this bag stand out are the volume (25L) and the layout.

What it Holds

Now, standard backpacks are not always the friendliest when it comes to storage space, and this may cause you to refrain from using one as your primary gym bag. However, the Generation Iron x KNKG Backpack is made for you athletes and gym goers that have tons of equipment and supplements to carry around. 

The Generation Iron x KNKG Backpack can hold:

  • Weightlifting belt
