KitBrix CityBrix Review

CityBrix Review Before

I first became aware of Kitbrix back in 2016, where I gave the standard Kitbrix Bag a glowing review, and published this hilarious and informative video.  I’ve been using these bags ever since, and got another one for my wife to use as her gym bag.

Since I had such success with the sport version of the KitBrix, I wanted to give the “business end” of the brand a try with the KitBrix CityBrix.

KitBrix CityBrix Features

Large Laptop Carrier  – Separate side loading section for laptop/tablet up to 17 inches.

Gym Locker Section – Ability to keep your hardware (work) separate from your software (play). If you know what I mean. And I think you do.

Sturdy AF – Just like it’s predecessor, it’s a workhorse that stands up to race day abuse. The outside materials are made from ballistic nylon outer material. The aqua seal zippers never leave me with a doubt, and the base is actually waterproof.

KitBrix CityBrix Usage

I often carry this bag with me to race locations. I need a bag that can hold all my gear, and allows me to stay the nimble fairy that I am. It has the ability to store my laptop, chargers, extensions, podcast recording equipment and more on any given day. You may have even seen me wearing this on race day, zipping by to grab a mid obstacle Instagram post or snag a finish line interview.

Since it’s black and sleek, I can also use this bag for everyday office use.

KitBrix CityBrix Durability

Kitbrix products are nothing if not solid. As stated in the features, these things are built to last. Even with everyday use, I predict this bag lasting a long time.

KitBrix CityBrix Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Lots of roomy compartments. If in a hurry, I can shove everything in at once, or if I take my time, I can organize like crazy.
  • Work and play capability. Can leave your house for 12 hours and would have everything you need for a physical activity, plus all of your work stuff.
  • Even more compartments. Yes I am listing this twice, as there are so many ways to separate and keep track of things.
  • Standup waterproof base. It can stand up on its end, rather than laying flat. This is safer for my equipment, and also saves room when need be.

Cons

  • Can think of something I don’t like about this bag. I suppose if you want a color other than black, it’s not for you.

KitBrix CityBrix Conclusion

I love the CityBrix, and it has been my go to “work bag” since I first received one two years ago. At $135, its $130 less than a GR1, a bag that many in the OCR/Ruck community use for similar situations. It will be going on our next “Gear To Have List”.
