Have kettlebell, will tote

| filed under: , , , ,

I don't have a car—thank god—but I like the idea of bringing a kettlebell outside to do some swings, cleans, presses, and snatches.

Have kettlebell, will tote

My small tote with my 16kg kettlebell

Some days I just want to be outside. So, I brainstormed as to what method of conveyance would best both fit and handle and port a kettlebell just down to the community park I share with the rest of my building. Just to be outside.

I thought to myself: the LLBean canvas tote! They have small ones with extra long steps, made for ladies to use as convenient shoulder bags. And Chris Abrahams.

What's even cooler is that it is bombproof and:

  • Heavy-duty 24 oz. cotton canvas.
  • Double-layer base.
  • Handles tested to hold up to 500 pounds!
  • Reinforced flat canvas bottom.
  • Overlapped seams are double-stitched with nylon so they won't rot or break.

So, I ordered one—accidentally with a zipper, which I didn't need or want—and I chose green (the color of the 24kg kettlebell) and I had it monogrammed with kettlebell on it in green thread. Cool.

I started schlepping my 16kg cast iron kettlebell in the bag but it's just not versatile enough for me—and I still find it heavy and very difficult to enjoy schlepping—you'll see it in the lovely photo to the right.

No, however, I have relegated the 20kg bell to a GoRuck Bullet 10L backpack and my oldest kettlebell, my old CFF Fit 12kg Competition kettlebell, now lives in the tote bag.
