Here’s another great gym bag from King Kong Apparel – the CORE51 Duffel.
King Kong Apparel uses only the toughest materials from buckles to pockets to ensure you have the toughest gear for your tough workout. Though King Kong’s initial intention was to make the best quality and most functional gym bags, they continue to change the expectations of the gym bag. The CORE range is one of the pieces of evidence, including the CORE51.
Here’s some of the styles we are going to look at:
CORE51 Duffel – Overview
Most of the materials used in CORE51 Duffel are the same as those used in other King Kong bags – the durable YKK zippers, heavy-duty buckles for ultimate security, nylon lining, and webbing. One of the most significant differences between CORE51 from other King Kong bags is its unique weight belt holder that assures functionality isn’t compromised. It is made of lighter 600D Polyester outside and a new Velcro logo feature that enables you to go ‘incognito’ with your own patches.
You can wrap around your lifting belt outside the duffel through the Nylon webbing. CORE51 is 46% bigger with heightened support and performance designed especially for lifters. At 51L, this duffel weighs 1 kg and measures 32cm x 50cm using only high-quality materials backed up with a warranty.
This bag can fit a belt up to 6.7″/17cm wide 51.5″/131cm long. The lever belt can fit, but you should count the lever into your measurement. It has more pockets and compartments for your shoes, pre and post-workout gym clothes, toiletries, towels, laptop, two water bottles, cables, a small lunch box, and more.
CORE51 Duffel Review – In Summary
That’s the CORE51 Duffel.
CORE51 allows you to sort your gym stuff inside the bag with proper organization keeping your shoes and dirty clothes away from the clean ones. Your lifting belt will not get in the way as you can wrap it around outside your bag through the Nylon webbing. With King Kong Apparel making high-quality and functional gym bags, you can be sure CORE51 will perform as it should, as tough as it should.
