More than a transition bag! Thank you to Sigma sport who reviewed the very first Kitbrix, assessing all aspects of the product as a transition bag, cycle rain bag, swim kit bag and more!
Owning a vast array of cycling kit, swimwear or running gear is great; transporting it around, maybe less so. This is where KitBrix comes in. It offers a handy, rugged, versatile kit bag for storing your sweaty jersey, wet trisuit and smelly shoes. Designed by ex-military officer Rob Aldous, this bag means business. KitBrix allows you to organise your kit with military precision. I checked out a rather attractive looking bright blue and a dynamic white option. The big draw of KitBrix bags is their eye-catching styling and graphics. These bags come in a range of designs, differentiated by colour and logo on the bag’s side. The run and cycling logos adorned my bags and would be perfect for those competing on training for a duathlon (transition bag) where they wanted to keep their running apparel separate from their cycling gear. These cavernous bags offer plenty of storage options with a netted side pocket, ideal for keeping dirty and wet items in. A single KitBrix has a 20-litre capacity and weighs in at a mere 1.3 kilograms.
Inside, there are waterproof pockets, with two zipped side pockets perfect for storing valuables or small items, such as energy gels and bars. The inside, clear lid pocket provides a snug fit for documents you want to keep easy to hand. The large, reinforced main section is deep and well proportioned. My helmet and cycling shoes fitted in perfectly. Every eventuality and need is catered for, with a neat, clear window pocket on the outside- a great place to store your race licence, contact details or just a personalised nametag. The zips feature loopholes to secure a mini padlock on and each zip has a handy, highly visible, red pull-tab, making opening and closing the sections quick and simple. This is a bag that can weather the worst conditions. A tough tarpaulin material lines the inside, making it easy to distinguish your items and easy to clean, in fact you can even hose it off after an especially muddy run or ride.
Transporting this bag around couldn’t be simpler. It is supplied with a long, adjustable, padded shoulder strap and a military inspired, rubberised carry handle at the top. Never again will you find yourself struggling to get your bag in and out of your car. If the ‘over the shoulder’ look is not your thing the exterior zips add a further twist to this ingenious bag. If you are an owner of two KitBrix bags you can zip them together, keeping all your items together and also, with a bit of careful strap placement, you can transform your two handy KitBrix’s into one large backpack. If the bright colour schemes and dynamic logos were not visible enough, reflective KitBrix graphics and reflective detailing add a nice finishing touch and really set this bag apart from the competition. KitBrix’s inspiration from durable military kit bags and the similarities are profound. A grippy, sturdy base reduces wear and adds to this bag’s water resistant credentials. Whether you are looking to kit out a sports team or organise your race day apparel the KitBrix bag is a great, multipart organiser.
Always prepared. No fuss, just organised kit #keepittogether
