Under Armour Trainer Backpack

words_Nick Engvall

Fitting your workout into a busy schedule of work, school, family and fun, usually means we end up taking workout clothes and shoes and a host of other things with us to the gym. Finding the right bag to take that stuff can be fairly difficult. Especially considering the average size of a locker leaves about enough room for next to nothing.

Under Armour has created the Trainer Backpack to help ease these annoyances. The Trainer Backpack comes with a multitude of pockets, all of which are zippered to make sure nothing finds an escape. It also features a sneaker pocket, and a detachable mesh pouch to carry your game ball, glove, or other things. The honeycomb design adds a touch of style, and padded shoulder straps and back panel gives it comfort. Coming in a size that easily fits into lockers, the Under Armour Trainer Backpack might just be capable of making your life a little easier.
