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.
This backpack is excellent. I love using it for working out and traveling. Only issue I’ve had is the straps can become unattached while traveling with heavy loads. I love this backpack.
Given the challenges that 2020 presented, getting this EmPack has been a great alternative to going to the gym. I wish I would have gotten it earlier in the year! The only thing that I am having a problem with is one of the c-type clasps is constantly coming unhooked.
So many exercises can be done and I'm very excited to be able to take this and workout outside when the weather gets nicer! Highly recommend this product.
I love the idea. When I run one or both pouches seem to leak. Leaking near the mouth of pouch. I tightened the caps ...more testing needs to be done to see if the problem was solved.
I’ve been wanting to buy an empack for a while now and finally did it. So glad I did. It’s very well made and cute too. I’m so excited to be able to use this in the summer when I’m away from home much more and can continue my workouts wherever I am.
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.
