Intro: As most of you have realized by now I have an obsession with gear: shorts, shirts, kimonos, pants, supplements, anything at all. You name it and I’ve tried it or know someone who has. Shortly after I was introduced to the Ranger gi by Modern Flow I realized that they also have a cool new backpack. As an owner of Origin’s Mundial backpack I wanted to give this one a try and see how they compared.
A very cursory look is all that’s needed to see that this backpack is built to take abuse. If you’re familiar with packs used in hiking or high-end messenger bags you’ll recognize a lot of the same features. There are compression straps all over the place, an extra side compartment and extra red webbing. The pack has padded shoulder straps, a sternum strap and padded waist straps all to make it more comfortable with heavy loads.
Skull, Angel Wings, and other dark image insignias seem to be the theme choice of today’s MMA clothing line genre. With so many simplistic styles to choose from it puts the buyer at a standstill when picking a favorite brand. One company hoping to break away from this cycle is Oregon based clothing company STAYONFLUX. Created in 2011, STAYONFLUX is a brand that proudly represents for the hard working people with its message of staying positive, focused, and never giving during the arduous pursuit of accomplishing your vision.
Aspiring to outshine the competition, from their fight shorts to their stylish urbane designed shirts, STAYONFLUX brings a different yet unique style to MMA fight wear, providing the user with the ability to not only brandish a new cutting edge appeal but also a motivation inspiration.
