This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Getting buff is hard to do — and it requires a lot of gear. You can easily transport shoes, shorts, and more in these workout backpacks, as they're spacious enough to hold all your stuff on trips to and from the gym. Many can also prevent non-exercise equipment, like changes of clothes and laptops, from getting soaked with sweat, thanks to their water-resistant partitions. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best workout backpack on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 14, 2019:

While the majority of this list is dedicated to traditional duffel bags and backpacks, we felt the Gear Beast Running Vest and the One Savvy Girl Sling were worthy of inclusion, even though they might not hold as many of your possessions as their counterparts. We liked that they can go with you on outdoor excursions, enabling you to get a good workout in without having to leave any of your valuables behind.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
