Excellent, extremely high-quality product backed by exceptional customer service. Highly recommended for fitness enthusiasts or even if you just want a cool, stylish, uniquely designed backpack.
The EmPack Nomad
As a weight bag it’s great but the strap won’t stay tight as a backpack.
The Nomad is amazing! It’s my favorite backpack I’ve purchased because of its comfort, durability, functionality, and design. No backpack has ever felt better while running with weight. The quality of this thing seems like it will last a lifetime. I have the OG Empack which stays at home for strength training and workouts and then I have the Nomad that comes on runs, hikes, and trips out of town with me. I LOVE THIS THING!
Customize your weight and your workout
Filled with water: 13-14 pounds
Filled with sand: 21 pounds
Unfilled, 21" long and 1/2" thick, 5 ounces
How much weight does each reservoir add?
15 pounds when filled with water and up to 20 filled with sand. Remember that water is an unstable weight and will automatically feel heavier than your general static weight that you use in the gym. It adds a new element of stability training and proprioception (teaching your body to adapt to new surroundings) that will challenge your body in a whole new way.
How many reservoirs does a pack hold?
OG Empack - 4 (comes with 2)
Wander - 2
Nomad - 1 + a hydration pack
You can always buy extra reservoirs!
Is there a workout guide that comes with my pack?
We want you to use this baby! With every purchase we send a WORKOUT PDF GUIDE that you can use right away. We also have weekly workouts sent on our newsletter. Looking for more? We offer a 6 Week Get Strong Program on the website that was written specifically for the EmPack. It is great for traveling, in-home workouts and making the world your gym.
How durable are the packs?
The Empack uses the highest quality military grade 1000D, water-resistant Cordura with double backed bindings, straps, and handles to make this pack long lasting and fit for all your needs.
How do you transition the EmPack from a backpack to a training pack?
The transition is simple: take off the shoulder straps (unless using as a weighted vest) and tighten the front area by pulling the straps snug. Hold onto the pack's handles and use it like dumbbells or a kettlebell.
What are the best ways to use my Empack?
The packs are super versatile! Use it for work or travel and easily transition it to a weightlifting tool for strength training. The smallest pack (the Nomad) is also a great sized pack for trail running, hiking, and mountain biking.
Are there any how-to videos?
