Giveaway: Win 1 of 4 King Kong Apparel Bags!

Posted by

King Kong Bag 19Anybody that has been CrossFitting for a period of time, knows first hand how much equipment is required.

From weightlifting shoes, to minimal shoes, grips, speed ropes, tape, shorts, gloves, chalk, wraps, weight belt, lacrosse balls, foam rollers, compression clothing, protective socks, towels, grips, water bottles, protein, post workout meals and all the rest, means you’re often lugging around a whole shop worth of supplies.

With so much equipment to carry you need a bag that is going to suit your cause. Enter King Kong Apparel. King Kong Apparel is the brainchild of Australian CrossFitter, Stefan Gehrig who saw the need for a purpose built bag.

“Necessity is the mother of invention, and this was the driving force behind King Kong Apparel”, says founder Gehrig.

“Finding a gym bag with the right combination of pockets, shoe compartments and free space to fit all the required gear was impossible. You had to make compromises on what to bring, often finding that you didn’t have what you need. That’s how the King Kong Bag was born”.

King Kong Bag 110

Now in it’s second iteration, and made from an even heavier duty canvas construction, the King Kong Bag retails at $89.95 and comes in three colors – Black, Grey and Red.

At 20 inches long and 12 inches wide, it has a total of 5 pockets, a specifically designed dual shoe compartment, eyelets to ensure fresh air circulates through the bag, YKK Zippers, and a mobility pouch for storing lacrosse balls or any other pieces of equipment you require.

It truly is a bag that will suit any CrossFitters needs. Yet you don’t need to take our word for it, because over the next week we are giving 4 lucky readers a chance to win their very own King Kong Bag!

    As a new crossfitter this would be WAY better than my current gym bag. At my old gym I only needed a water bottle and maybe a change of clothes. Now I’m collecting things like my own speedrope, wod book and oly shoes. But the best thing by far would have to be all the small pockets so I can put my chalk in one of those separate from the rest of my stuff. I had a chalk disaster last week and ended up with chalk all through my bag and all over my stuff! In fact – after I finished cleaning the mess I jumped on the net looking for a new gym bag and found the King Kong bag which went STRAIGHT to the top of my list! I need this bag!

  • BballConditioning

    All 4 done! I would put my basketball gear in it, sneaks, bball, gumshield, Under Armour gear, shorts and jersey or put my gym kit in it, inov8s, oly shoes, shake, Sigg water bottle, straps, wraps, skipping rope and iPod for some beats! Hell what couldn’t I put in it!?

  • Wayne

    My wife and I attend our wods together, so we usually share 1 bag.
    But I would need to put in another set for both of us. But my bag consists of 2 each of oly shoes, jump rope, wrist wraps, tape, towels, headbands, knee sleeves, water bottles.

    As a student still in college and working full time, this King Kong bag will be perfect to fit all my crossfit gear such as weightlifting shoes, belt, workout clothing, and even my protein w/ food. Not only that,I will be able to fit my change of clothing to go straight to class after the gym. This bag is big and will do the job to fit almost anything I want in it.

  • John Quidgley

    Foam roller, Oly shoes, sweet potatoes, progenex, wraps, belt, fish oil, bio freeze, my sons bottles and diapers so I could leave him at daycare at our box and do my thing!!

  • Nick Slabaugh

    I’ve had my eye on one of these for over a year now, but the wife wouldn’t let me pull the trigger. :-) I’d fill that monster up with my Olys, Nano 2.0s, clothes, lacrosse ball(s), RockTape, Toast topical analgesic, Rogue Rx Jump Rope, water bottle, and last but certainly not least – my post-wod KILL CLIFF!!!!!!!

  • Nick Slabaugh

    I’d love to own one of these bad boys. My normal gym bag just can’t handle it anymore. I’ll put in it my nanos, olys, foam roller, wraps, speed rope, resistance bands, lacrosse ball, tapes, shakers, towels and spare t-shirts..

  • Kiara Margison

    This would be so handy, its the last thing that I need to make my crossfit journey just that little bit easier! It would save my nanos flying around in the back seat and my tapes and grips hiding under my seat in the car :)

    Give my busted old back pack and rest and carry my food. Oh, and my gym gear. Oly shoes, belts, ropes, long sock, spare strides, wraps

  • JJ

    I would really like a red one to match my car and skipping rope – so important! then I would fill it with my shoes, long socks, wrist wraps, skipping rope, water bottle, blue dinosaur paleo bar, stop watch, tape, roller, rumble roller, lacrosse ball, jumper, pawpaw cream (for those nasty rashes), can’t believe how much stuff I got – shall I keep going – get the idea? – I have lots of stuff – and I’m getting older which means I lose stuff, so need one place to keep it all. A lovely big bag with lots of pockets would generally reduce family stress!

If I had a King Kong bag I would fill it with all the usual crossfit things, but I would dedicate one of the pockets to hand tears, keeping a pair of clippers in there and storing the clipped off skin (gross i know, but it’s a way of measuring how hardcore I am).

  • Firas M

    My answer will be a bit boring but i would just have more space and can now take my racer to work without having to bloody gymbags on my back. I need space for a rain coat in case it rains, gym clothes, oly shoes, regular shoes, gloves, tape, and sometimes paper for work (if i did work at home).

    One bag instead of two makes alot of difference when biking 13km everyday (work-box-home)

    Liked the article, liked on Facebook. I would exchange this bag for my ratty bag that I got at the local thrift shop. While the bag I currently have is cute (polka dots) it is nowhere as functional as the King Kong bags are. There is only one pocket in my current bag and all of my workout gear gets jumbled around when I travel. I have to pull everything out just to find tape. Not to mention that my bag is overflowing as it is with 2 pairs of shoes, roller, jump rope, tape, hand balm, caulk, wrist wraps… You know the typical crossfit gear. A new King Kong bag would make my life simpler and would allow me to focus more time on WODing!

    This bag is much coveted by my partner who would not only keep his training gear in it but various items for our toddler and infant who help (or is it hinder?!) run our box. There’d be food & supps, drinks & towels, programming & client info, training records & athlete profiles…I’m sure there’d be a pic of Chad in there too ;)
    This bag would help ME as the man is notorious for losing things from spoons to ropes…please help him get organized & keep his stuff in one spot!!!! Liked & followed thank you x

  • Chad Cumming

    After liking on Facebook and Instagram, here is the list of what I would put into my King Kong Bag:

    Lots of shoes (WOD, Oly, flip flops – More than my teenage daughter and wife combined, it seems);
    My jump rope;
    Water bottles;
    Fruit for pre-workout snacks;
    Recovery supplement;
    Suit hanger, because I hit the Box right after I leave the office;
    Shorts & shirt for the workout;Wrist and knee wraps, because I’m getting freaking old and I sometimes need them;
    iPad, so my son has something to play with until I finish and he gets a turn to play;
    Dog treats (I don’t have a dog, but there’s always a dog somewhere around a CrossFit Box, and you might as well have it like you);
    Athletic tape, because I’m a delicate flower that needs tending sometimes;
    Foam roller and lacrosse balls;
    Clean shirt for post-workout (Because I smell bad afterwards, Seriously. It’s bad. I mean, damn!);
    Related to the foregoing, having a spot in my bag to place my befouled clothes would be an excellent feature!;

    bug spray and sunscreen;
    in cold weather, a hoodie and some sweat pants; and
    finally, a sherpa or a pack mule who can help me carry the damned thing once it’s full!

    I’m basically a hoarder and this bag would make my crossfit gym visits much more efficient… I’m always running back and forth from the gym to my bag trying to find crap and change shoes while at the box. I’d have all the normal stuff packed in along with some new additions…my ankle brace, cooling towel! Bag looks sweet….

    there is no other bag that can compare! it has the perfect amount of space to fit all your crossfit gear. My collection is slowly starting to grow, and as a result has outgrown my old bag and I am in desperate need of a new one. Therefore, my bag would include, two pairs of wrist wraps, 2 pairs of hand grips, rock tape, trigger point ball, water bottles, shakers, RPM rope, towel, strength wraps, nano’s, spare shirts, socks (long and short), shin skins … the list could go on forever!

    As a total gear whore, this bag would make my CrossFit life complete and I would not be stuck digging at the bottom on my backpack looking for essential gear. I particularly love that it houses more than one pair of shoes since depending on the combination of the day’s workouts I often need more than one pair.

    Liked on facebook + Instagram. I don’t currently have a bag for all my gear so it’s scattered on my front seat and I just grab what I need for the WOD that day. It’d be great to get my shoes, apparel, nutrition and shaker as well as tape and, of course, band-aids. Gotta take care of those box jump accidents. Please pick me!

  • Lynnie

    I have liked King Kong apparel on Facebook. I would put every crossfit item I own in this bag. I would even put my partners stuff in there just to bulk it up.

  • Tim

    Start with the most important, AdiPower lifters, Reebok Nanos, Shorts, Socks, Wraps, Tshirt, Shaker, Protein powder, Bait Box, Rx Rope, my Peanut, Foam Roller, Hockey Ball, Wrist Wraps, Kineseo Tape.. Work stuff after changing.

  • Trav

    liked on FB, What would i put in the King Kong bag = stuff to help make me a greater Crossfitter + work stuff for after + protein + other not necessarily required bits + a kitchen sink and anything else that im sure it would still fit.

  • Ken

    Liked on FB. Followed on FB.

    I would put into the bag all of the items I currently carry into the box. The difference being I wouldn’t need to hand carry in half my stuff. Shoes; rope; wraps; water bottle; towel. It would all fit into a single bag. The bag won’t change my life. My goals won’t change. It won’t increase my snatch. I won’t be able to perform a strict muscle up. It will make walking out the door to work every day, into and out of class at lunch, and then back into the house a bit easier. That and my iPod Shuffle would stop getting lost in my stuff.

  • Gwen

    If I had this super bag, I would pack it with all the stuff that current bulges out of my backpack: my Reebok CrossFit Oly shoes, Innov-8′s, wod book and pen, water bottle, bcaa caps, Rx jump rope, hockey tape, post-wod meal, extra pair of long socks and short socks, panty liners (for those brutal skipping and running wods), giant bandaids, lulu headband, bobby pins, mobile phone and car keys. Wow, until now I hadn’t quite realized why my backpack is about to die…

  • Tobi

    I’d be happy to finally separate my workout-clothes from my post-workout-clothes. And not to get eveything covered in protein powder and chalk would be a nice bonus. =)

    Liked on Facebook. Follow on Instagram. Like article. The King Kong bag would make life so much easier. I use a gym bag but it doesn’t fit everything I need: Reebok Nanos,wrist wraps, collars, extra socks, tape, water bottles, shakers, protein, inhaler, first aid kit, gym clothes and work clothes, towel, grips, mobility gear, post-workout food, etc. I’m usually having to lug my gym bag and juggle extra stuff. I also LOVE the organization aspect of the King Kong bag! I’m a neat freak and so it can get annoying not having pockets for easy access.

    Ok, I liked the FB, followed the instagram, liked the article and telling here what I would put in my new bag… EVERYTHING! My oly shoes, my inov8s, my nanos, my rope, wrist wraps, a crap ton of tape, extra socks, gloves, blender bottle, post workout snacks, lacrosse ball, headbands, towels, and maybe the kitchen sink!

  • Fiona Alford

    Wow! This bag would be such a God send, the bag I’m using now is so small everything falls to the bottom so to find something, have to empty it, biggest pain in the *ss! Lol!!
    I would have my Reebok training shoes, skip rope, towel, water, WOD journal, tape, post WOD snack, extra socks , headband, hairband. Bag looks amazing!!

  • Josh Brown

    I usually have to jump from the box to work or somewhere else. (Don’t worry, I use stuff like Action Wipes after!). So, a change of clothing is usually required, along with storing all my crap. I am pretty minimalist when it comes to what I bring, but shorts, shirt, shoes, and socks are the basics with some wrist wraps, a spare rope, and a trusty wrist band for when I sweat. I started packing a water bottle filled with an electrolyte tablet and some hand sanitizer in case I start to bleed at any point. All of these are bare essentials, and I could fit a lot more in a King Kong bag!

  • cablebfg

    Oh, and I did all three things!

  • Cory Heimark

    Liked on fb, followed on instagram, liked this article and now posting the ends all of everything I would put in this bag. I always seem like I end up needing a different bag, I have several gym bags, but none really fit the bill for me as a crossfitter. If I wasn’t wearing my nanos, they’d be in the bag, the bag would hold my army uniform when I changed in to my workout clothes and was heading to do my WODs. Tape, bands, rocksauce, chalk, speed rope, wrist wraps, snack, water, lifting belt, sometimes collars, chains. toiletries, phone, keys and wallet while I was working out. You name it I could put it all in there and not have to need an additional bag. It’s the King Kong after all, it can hold it all. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.

  • Andrea Rogers

    I’m in love with this King Kong Bag! I really need one as the beginning of my crossfit lifestyle is taking off. My goal is to compete in the crossfit games open next year and head to regionals! In just two short months I have made serious gains and cut over 20lbs in fat. Plus being in the military I have many ties to athletes and would promote this product like no other! I want to tell you what would go inside my bag. Chalk, nano 3.0s, new balance minimus’, rogue fitness speed rope, reebok weighted jump rope, wrist straps, rolls of tape, homemade tape hand grips, knee socks, towel, Nalgene bottle x 2, shaker bottle, C4 extreme preworkout- pink lemonade

  • Heather Lui

    I love this bag! I would put my oly shoes, crossfit nano 2.0s, and my minimal type climbing shoes from inov. Also, knesio tape, water bottle, protein powder, bcaa, glutamine, and bcaa amino energy. Also, green tea packets, and essential oils. :)

    What would I put in this bag you ask? All my workout gear: a change of clothing, my iPod, wraps, tape, gloves, a towel, and stuff to take a shower since I workout in the middle of the day and then go back to work. It sure would make like easier for me!

  • Sean

    The better question would be what WOULDN’T I put in this bag?? Crossfit gear for the WOD, compression socks, Inov-8′s, strength wraps, tape, mobility roller, voodoo floss band, lacross ball, stretch band, water, knee sleeve, towel and gear to change into after I’ve sweat through the WOD.

  • JD

    When CrossFitting, I often realize I have excessive amounts of love for my community and their betterment, humbleness at the depth of others athleticism, and willingness to return to seek the next PB/PR! Of course I have a list of equipment to put in my bag and this clearly fits the bill to keep clothes to change into, protein to ingest afterwod, mobility equipment to stay supple, and so much more, but what truly separates CrossFit from other activities are the abstract items.
    The list of these abstract qualities SHOULD be in your King Kong apparel bag and should be alongside you for every visit to new boxes and your home one. I would insure when my King Kong bag was unzipped, there was more added to the community than just some cool swag.

  • Christie Putnam

    What would I put in this? It’s basically a running joke at our box that I need a gym bag because I use everyone else’s. A few months ago I put my wedding ring in my husbands coat pocket (without telling him), and then spent a full half hour making other crossfitters search the parking lot for it because he claimed it wasn’t in the pocket anymore (it was..just stuck down in the seam). I lose my lifting gloves about every other day there, have left flip flops, protein, kinesiotape among many, many other things. :) That bag would be amazing!

  • Daniel J

    What can I not put in a King Kong Bag? By the look of the size alone it looks like I can fit almost anything I want. As a full time student and a full time worker I would have not only all my crossfit gear, but I bet I can fit my school gear also. It will be neat to get this bag and not have to use plastic bags anymore. HOOK IT UP!

  • Melissa Barajas

    I would give the bag to my husband since he got my hooked on crossfit, then I’d make sure he bought me one & fill it with my nanos, jump rope, wrist grips, gym clothes, tape, foam roller, lacrosse ball, chalk, Oly’s, tampons, water bottle, protein & snacks for my kid since he goes to cf with me.

      And I did all 4 entries….

    As someone who travels a lot for work, this would save me from unpacking my crossfit kit everytime I go away.

    No more pulling out my five-fingers, nano’s, oly-shoes, RX rope, rocktape, protein shaker, JAW handgrips, speed-roller, lacrosse ball and spare gym clothes.

    Sounds like a dream.

  • Brad Hansen

    Oly shoes, nanos, weight belt, three sets of writs straps, shin sleeves, Tommy Kono knee bands, tape, x2 jump ropes and a towel.

    Wow…what a cool bag! I would have my gym shoes, clean clothes and shower stuff, ipod, water bottle.
