For the longest time I used my old Condor Tactical Mission Pack as my gym bag. It’s a great bag but as I got more into MMA it became troublesome to use. I developed a need for a duffel style bag but I didn’t want just any bag. I’m very picky when it comes to packs and bags as I’ve tried to many of them over the years. From cheap to expensive. I had been eye-balling the 3V Gear Smuggler for quite a while but the business kept me busy and I just kept putting it off. However, recently I finally got in contact with Kirk over at 3V Gear and struck up an arrangement on a couple smugglers, range bags, and other packs and gear.

As I said, I’m very picky when it comes to packs and from my experience you tend to get what you pay for. Which is true for most things. So I was hesitant on the Smuggler simply because it’s in a very affordable low price range. I was a little worrisome that the quality would be subpar, but I was definitely proved wrong. It’s made out of a quality canvas/PVC base material, so it’s like a thick field tarp. Which is awesome because it makes it super easy to clean, and incredibly water resistant. It’s also got some optional backpack straps that provide you an extra method of carrying over traditional duffel bags.

I’ve been using my new smuggler now as my dedicated gym bag. I needed something that was easy to clean, and had large enough space to accommodate my irregular MMA gear, as well as some basic organization for my smaller items. The Smuggler fits the mission perfectly, and it’s got a pretty sexy price range as well. It’s not just good for a gym bag though, the smuggler has a rugged design that allows for it to be useful in almost any environment for just about any purpose. But even better is the awesome deal we worked out for you guys (our fans/members)!
