Gym Bags for Real Men


#41

OP would fit in very well in a judgement-free zone.


#42

Can you imagine a bunch of machines sitting around bs’ing about their day?

“You wouldn’t believe what this guy did to me…”


#43

Not making a joke I actually would use that as a gym bag


#44

@bulldog9899 You just reminded me that my next gym bag is collecting dust in my parent’s attic somewhere.


#45

That’s the DPKR ruck (or close to it). There’s a silhouette in every military Hogan’s alley (shooting gallery) that is wearing one of those.

Muscle memory might cause some ex-military guy to shoot you.

(I’m joking, but my first reaction looking at the picture was “enemy”.)


#46

Sadly, in our modern places of warfare, the wive’s beards are thicker than mine. Never saw one I’d be willing to fuck, even with a O-7’s dick.


#47

Well to me Guinness screams manly


#48

Not exactly sure of the actual negative impact of not having the proper gym bag would have on ones progress it the gym.


#49

Imbalances and less than optimal progress.


#50

oh yes…how stupid of me.


#51

Pics or it didn’t happen

North Face Duffle Bag,

It’s “water-proof”, meaning that it won’t matter if it’s pouring rain which is a feature to me as I bike to-and-from work after the gym and I sometimes have my work laptop in it. It’s also easy to clean the insides, which matters a bunch when you take a fall and one’s lunch box gets crushed into glass shards and mushed food.

The color might not match your requirements, but when it’s dark it’s more visible than a black duffle. Also, since most people tend to avoid owning bright colored items here it makes it less likely that you’ll mix yours up with someone else’s which is, again, a feature for me as I bring it with me to the climbing wall as well and if I had a black duffle I’d be one in 50 people with the same bag.

Got this free about 10 years ago and it’s still going strong.


#54

You don’t get to say when a thread concludes. Once you start it, it is no longer yours but belongs to all of humanity.

Or, you can end the thread with the purchase of this bag:


#55

I moved back to the 70’s a few years ago so I like retro looking simple things. I just bought this.


#56

Quality luggage is a small thing, but important.


#57

Without quality luggage you’ll really limit the amount of progression available for bicep curls.


#58

Ha.

In seriousness, there are a couple of material items men need to be an adult. In no particular order:

a bank account and a retirement fund

a quality suit, dark (Even if not needed at work, you go to funerals once or twice a year as an adult. Show respect.)

a pair of nice dress shoes. No, not Johnston Murphy. A pair of Allen Edmunds or above.

a matching set of quality luggage

decent tool set, including drill bits and a nice drill, one for wood and one for metal. +1 for a battery charger and an air compressor

(depending on location and temperament) a firearm of your choosing

a reliable means of transportation

Etc.


#59

Why must it be matching?


#60

I like pockets, pockets are cool, or an Aldi plastic carrier bag.
