New for 2022: Packs perfect for the run

L ike a chipmunk with cheeks full of food, sometimes runners need to carry more than their hands can hold. While we can’t recommend stuffing snacks in your face — our lawyers told us that’s a choking hazard — we can suggest our latest storage gear.

Designed for distance

Our team has been developing running bags for a while. But as it turns out, “Bags are complicated!” says Brooks Product Line Manager Mike Orton. And these bags needed to be just right.

“We wanted to ensure that our bags achieve the same thing we solve for every day with apparel — distraction-free, bounce-free, chafe-free — in order to keep the runner in the zone and not thinking about what they’re wearing,” Orton says.

In other words, the bar was high. Luckily, our team was up to the task. The result is a brand new product line for Brooks, and a big asset to your miles.

Pick your pack

It’s a truth run-iversally acknowledged that no two runs — or runners — are alike. That’s why we have different options in our new line of bags. The Stride Pack is a running backpack that holds items you’ll need for work or for a workout later in the day. The Stride Waist Pack is perfect for pocket spillover. It can help store small essentials you want on the run. Take a look below and find the best running pack for your needs.

Stride Pack

With a laptop sleeve and multiple pockets for storage, this bag is great for a run commute. It also works well for a ride or walk to work — just take the Stride Pack into the office so you’re ready for a lunch run. Bring your shoes and workout gear and stash the pack in your car trunk or a locker until you need it.

Stride Waist Pack

Want to carry a few just-in-case supplies? This bag is built for it. Use the waist pack for a long run when you’ll need on-the-go calories or a hydration packet. And store gear for running in the dark or on the trail, such as a flashlight, self-protection tools, or first aid.
