I like the product. However, wasn't happy with the lack of communication and time it took for delivery. After I received a tracking number and was told my item had shipped on February 15, there wasn't any information provided for over a week. My wife ordered a bag the same day I did on February 12 and has yet to receive hers. Provider explained to my wife that it was lost in the mail and they would send another however, she has not received it either. Great bag just wish the communication and promptness was better.

I can not share information as I have not yet received my empacks
Pack is well made and will be great to use, but the straps don't get as tight on the top as I would like them. It ends up either clipping on my boobs or hanging off my upper back.
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?
