Let’s review the new Brick Bag from Rogue. This mini sand bag is versatile and convenient for any sort of fitness use.

Spoiler alert – you don’t fill this with bricks.

So why the funny name? The original way to add weight to your rucksack (backpack) for fitness was to tape together 2 or 3 bricks.

The Brick Bag is a better option though – It’s really a miniature sand bag.

Fill it from 0 lbs to 10bs (or 0 to 20 lbs with the bigger version) – and you’ve got a pretty handy little sand bag.

Even better, the integrated handle keeps it secure – and lets you use it like a dumbbell or kettlebell too!

Here are some of the styles you can buy now:

Rogue Brick Bag (10 LB) Brick Bag- The 10 lb size is perfect for use in your rucksack - or by hand. This is great for travel too - because when it's empty it packs down to virtually nothing.
Rogue Brick Bag (20 LB) Want to go heavier? Go with this bigger size. You can fill these with sand or pea gravel - thanks to the tough 1000D Cordura material they are made of.

Overall, it’s a winner, and the price is right.

I like to use these to supplement the ruck plates I use in my GORUCK Rucker 3 backpack.

Brick Bag – Overview

Rogue Brick Bags are designed from a durable 1000D Cordura fabric, with a handy Velcro closure that’s rolled down and secured using a 2” nylon webbing strap. This strap can be used as a grip-friendly carry handle.

The Brick Bag is a small sack meant for everyday workout use. It is a fillable small sandbag made to fit into your backpack but you can use it in other ways too. There are two size options available and these can be ordered separately or in pairs.

Let’s take a closeup look at the 1000D Cordura:

1000D Cordura is very densely stitched – and that makes it a great material for a sand bag. All the good sand bags use 1000D.

10 LB Brick Bag measures 10.5” long x 6” wide x 4” tall (when filled), 0.25 LB unfilled – approximately 10 LB capacity dependent on the type of filler material used. In contrast, 20 LB Brick Bag measures 12” long x 8” wide x 5” tall (when filled), 0.35 LB unfilled, approximately 20 LB capacity dependent on the type of filler material used.

Rogue Brick Bag 10lb Review Overview
Here’s my 10lb Rogue Brick Bag. It’s filled with pea gravel and is right at the 10lb mark as filled here.

What can you fill it with? Sand or pea gravel are recommended.

Here’s what 10lbs of pea gravel look like in the Rogue Brick Bag.

Athletes can use Rogue Brick Bag for dumbbell movements. They can fill the Brick Bag to their aimed weight and execute an array of traditional dumbbell movements: thrusters, cleans, curls, and shoulder press with its securing nylon strap serving as a handle. Their small size is advantageous as the bags also fit perfectly into a rucksack and can be used as custom, additional weight additions for rucking workouts and training.

It’s got an integrated handle that also helps secure the contents. This is very versatile!

Brick Bag Review – In Summary

That’s our review of the Brick Bag from Rogue.

Rogue Brick Bags are excellent for on-the-go training, especially in a beach setting. Store one or more (empty) mini sandbags in the pocket of a gym bag, then use the naturally available sand, pebbles, etc., as momentary fill material. Empty the bags when you’re done, store them back into a side pocket, and you’re good to go.
