The main difference is the unique weightlifting belt attachment. This feature allows the bag be used as normal, while carrying a cumbersome lifting belt on the outside. Other changes are the volume (35L) and the layout.
Most of the materials are the same as used in other King Kong bags. YKK zippers, heavy duty buckles, nylon lining and webbing are all the same. In the CORE range, we have gone for a lighter 600D polyester outside and a new velcro logo feature that allows you to go 'incognito' with your own patches.
