Why You Should Train with a Rogue Jerry Can Sandbag

The Rogue Jerry Can Sandbag just made its first appearance at the CrossFit Games, destroying athletes in the “Capitol” Event.

Developed for the 2021 Rogue Invitational, the JC-100S Jerry Can Sandbag is a new variation on a classic military design.

Rather than using metal or HDPE (as in our JC-40 Jerry Can),this American-made model features a durable 1000D military-grade Cordura construction and a 500D coated-nylon interior liner, all supported by triple-seam stitching and reinforced binding for max structural integrity.

These sandbags are more space efficient than traditional jerricans, while still offering substantial load capacities of approximately 100 LBS of sand or 40 LBs of crumb rubber.*

Each JC-100S Jerry Can includes a built-in funnel filler design for quick loading of filler material (not included) with a secure Velcro closure and a polyurethane-reinforced YKK #10 zipper to prevent leaks.

The silent zipper also tucks into a built-in pocket to help keep the slide stationary and the user’s hands free from abrasion.

The heavy-duty handles are built with American-made 1.5” nylon webbing, and stitched with vinyl backed, reinforced “X” box tacks. One handle includes a 5″ PVC tube, providing additional comfort under heavy loads.

A 1000D Cordua + Velcro wrap can be used to join the handles, creating a single 5” grip that’s well suited for balancing and carrying heavy loads.

*Please Note: Loadable weight of the JC-100S Jerry Can depends on the density and size of the media being used. Certain media may cause the overall weight of the bag to be greater than or less than projected weight capacity. Due to the nature of the fabric and the directed use, the Jerry Can bags may expand over time. Additionally, these bags are not prefilled.

Details of the Rogue Jerry Can Sandbag.

Made in the USA – Built for the Rigours of Training

The outside layer of the JC-100S Jerry Can is made from 1000 D military-grade Cordura with a YKK (polyurethane reinforced) #10 zipper, while the interior leak-proof lining is 500D coated nylon.

The heavy-duty, dual-handle wrap system features 1.5” nylon webbing, reinforced with vinyl backed “X” box tacks. The two handles are secured using the Cordura + Velcro wrap. With the addition of a PVC tube sewn onto one of the handles, a strong 5” single grip is created once wrapped.

The sandbag maintains a consistent wedge shape and includes triple-seams and binding reinforcement throughout, making it just as durable as traditional metal or plastic jerricans.

Built-In Funnel Filler

The bag’s built-in funnel filler design enables quick loading of filler material (not included) with a secure Velcro closure. Athletes can easily customize the amount of weight they want to train with, adjusting up to the Jerry Can’s load capacity of approx. 100 LBS of sand or 40 LBS of crumb rubber.

Please Note: The bag’s actual max capacity will vary depending on the density and size of the filler material being used.

From WWII to Modern Day Competitions

The earliest Jerry Cans were widely used as metal fuel containers during World War II. In more recent history, athletes have adopted the design as a unique strength training implement, with the container’s customizable weightload and top handle making it effective for farmers walk carries, squats, overhead presses, and more.

While Rogue has made metal and HDPE jerry cans in the past, we developed the JC-100S Jerry Can Sandbag as a new Cordura version of the same idea. It was introduced during the CrossFit “Chipper” event at the 2021 Rogue Invitational.
