Most of the time you will find higher quality items with this brand than you will with many others. Their reputation is constantly on the line and they strive to make their customers happy. It is likely that once you start investing your time and money into this brand you will not be disappointed.

Materials

The majority of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is made from polyester. Polyester is a common material used in items from this category. We see it frequently due to the fact that it is durable, looks great, and resists water. Not all polyester is created equal and this brand has chosen one of the better options available.

While the straps are made from the same polyester as the outer body, they are also padded. This is going to provide a better level of comfort while you are carrying this bag. It is important to note that many customers have stated that the shoulder straps are not overly bulky. This is going to give you a streamlined fit which also helps in terms of comfort.

There are two mesh pockets on each side that are perfect for carrying your water bottles. These are the bulk of the materials being used in this item. You will come into contact, naturally, with zipper closures. Consumers love the simplicity of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 because it means they can simply throw it in the washer when it is soiled. Taking care of it is truly simple.

Pockets

The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is going to give you a good variety of pocket space. Easily finding a spot for each of the items you need to carry will no longer be a challenge. As noted, there are two mesh pockets on each side for easy access to your water bottles or smaller items.

Obviously, there is a large center section that is going to hold the majority of your things. It is broken out into two separate pockets to promote easier organization. Having the ability to find your items quickly can get you to your training session faster. Additionally, can cut down on the frustration of digging around for certain items.

There is a zipper pocket on the front that is excellent when you're searching for the perfect place for your cell phone, keys, mouthguard case, hand wraps, or other small items. The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 also has an added a pocket at the bottom so you can separate out your shoes or gloves from the main compartment.

Comfort

If you like to walk or ride your bike to the gym, how comfortable your bag is can play a pretty big role. When you pack it full of different pieces of gear and equipment it could weigh you down. So, having straps that are going to sit comfortably on your shoulders is a pretty big advantage. This is especially true if you have quite a long commute.

The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 backpack is going to keep you quite comfortable. They have added padding to the shoulder straps to make sure that they don't dig in. Consumers have noted that while they offer ample padding it does not make this bag overly bulky or uncomfortable to wear.

Under Armour has also added a handle to the top of the backpack. This makes it very convenient to simply grab it while you're at the gym or hang it up in your gym locker. Overall, they have done a good job at working padding in where customers needed to maintain an optimal level of comfort while carrying this bag around.

Breathability

The Under Armour Hustle 3.0 really does not have any features built into it to help promote breathability. Typically, when you are looking at a gear bag it will have mesh panels built into the design to help promote air flow. They do this so that your items will dry out more quickly and you won't be left with his many foul odors.

Many people use this as a standard backpack and not a gym bag which is likely why it doesn't have much breathability. Due to the fact that it doesn't get much airflow, you will need to empty it out after each use. If you don't you will be left with gloves that aren't completely dried and ready to go for your next training session.

It is likely going to be advantageous for you to invest in some deodorizing products. While you absolutely can throw the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 in the washing machine over the course of time this can hurt its durability. So, using deodorizing products can help ensure that you get excellent longevity of use out of this bag.

Style

There are basically two styles of gym bags available. You can invest in a duffel bag which tends to be quite a bit larger in a bit bulky. On the other hand, if you're looking for something a bit small or you can go with a backpack style bag.

Obviously, the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is styled like a standard backpack. It does offer extra pockets that are going to work exceptionally well for spiders and their gear. In addition, it is very easy to carry when you are finding a green way to commute to the gym.

Many people find carrying a backpack styled bag to be more comfortable. You may not be able to fit as many items in it, however, it will sit more comfortably on your shoulders then the shoulder strap of a duffel bag will. You will also be able to fit it into your gym locker much more easily than you will a large duffel.

Durability

Unfortunately, what we're seeing in reviews is that the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is not the most durable backpack available to you. Many customers have had complaints about durability issues. If these crop up quick enough you can get ahold of the brand and they will get you a replacement. However, there is a limit on how long you have to return or exchange it.

It has been noted by consumers that they have issues with the durability of the straps. Where they are stitched onto the bag, they tend to rip. This is showing up a lot when people are trying to carry a lot of gear inside of their the Under Armour Hustle 3.0. If you weigh it down too much it is likely are going to have problems with the stitching near the straps.

Consumers have also stated that they have seemed durability issues in general. It does not that the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 has reinforced at the seams so when you're carrying a plethora of things this can be an issue. You may notice that the thread starts to break and the seams start to separate. Obviously, this is a pretty big disadvantage if you plan on using this bag on a daily basis.

Advantages

One of the big advantages associated with the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is the fact that it's very comfortable to carry. Regardless of where you are headed or how many things you're carrying is not going to dig into your shoulders. It will stay securely on your back which makes riding your bike or going for a walk with it extremely easy.

Another advantage of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is the fact that it's going to help keep you organized. You will have quick access to the items you need most like your water bottles and smaller items like your hand wraps. Staying organized can get you to your training session more quickly which, in turn, can help improve your performance, overall.

Consumers also love how convenient it is to care for their Under Armour Hustle 3.0. Throwing a deodorizing product into it can help reduce the foul smell of sweaty training sessions. In addition, you can simply throw it in your washing machine when it becomes unbearably smelly. This is easy and fast.

Disadvantages

There are a few big disadvantages is associated with the Under Armour Hustle 3.0. When you're making an investment into an item you want to know that it's going to hold up. Many consumers are having issues with durability in regards to this product. Obviously, this is a pretty major downfall.

You don't want to have to worry about your seams bursting or your straps ripping off. This could cause damage to your gear or even cause you to lose items. We believe that durability is an issue with this item that this brand really needs to work on.

One other thing to keep in mind about the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is the fact that it's totally lacking in breathability. This is not a major downfall, however, it is a bit frustrating. Having to purchase extra deodorizing products can be a burden on some budgets. Overall, this is a pretty mine or disadvantage but it is certainly something to take under consideration.

Value

I believe that the value of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is slightly less than average. When you are dealing with some serious disadvantage is like durability issues it does decrease the overall value. If you are not carrying a whole lot of items around you might not have issues with durability but most people try to pack quite a bit into their gym bag.

Looking at the price of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0, it's also adding to the reason we think it is a slightly less than average value. You'll be paying a bit more for this bag but you won't be getting the same durability you would with others. Don't get us wrong. It is likely that most people will be able to fit this into their budget. We aren't sure, however, how long you'll be able to use it.

Looking over all of the different aspects of the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 there is a conglomeration of pros and cons. The cons that are associated with it are pretty heavy. It definitely takes away from the value of this product. It was a bit surprising to us to see that this bag had such durability issues considering that this brand is usually exceptional at providing high-quality options.

Bottom Line

If you are looking for a backpack style gear bag, the Under Armour Hustle 3.0 is a decent option. It makes getting a hold of your water bottle in finding smaller items simple. In addition, it offers quite a bit of room on the large inside compartment so you can fit items like your sparring gear inside.

You won't have to worry about your items becoming wet when you decide to go with the Under Armour Hustle 3.0. It is made of a material that is resistant to water. In addition, they have added abrasion resistance to the bottom of the bag. This means you won't have to be as careful with it when throwing it into the locker.

Overall, there are definitely worse choices and gear bags. If you don't overstuff this one you should get a decent amount of use out of it before it starts to break down. Most customers are very happy with the design of this bag and they appreciate the fact that it comes in so many different colors.
