Rated 2 out of 5 by Tonytone68 Does the Job but I'm NOT 100% Sold on this Bag
The bag is nice. The material is sturdy and the print is bold which is great. My primary problem with this back is the sling strap. I"m a big guy (250 pounds big) and I find that the straps do not accommodate people like me. I walk to the yoga studio from my condo (4 blocks) and I wanted something to throw my mat, my towel ans water into. This works except for the strap. I'm left handed and when I sling it on my left shoulder, it doesn't sit right. When I sling it over my right should it sits fine but feels awkward.
Overall this is a great bag but it's just not for me. I'm going to keep it because it was relatively inexpensive. I'm just going to find something that works better for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rosefine Too small, poorly made
I really wanted to like this bag. But only one of the three pockets is big enough to use. The central compartment isn't really big enough to put much else in it other than the mat. And today I washed it for the first time and the seams at the zipper split. I've already bought another bigger bag - let's see how it does.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Susan3228 Sturdy and functional pockets
Got this bag in purple and glad I did. The lighter, neutral color will pick up "dirt" when laying bag on floor in gym, car floor, etc. Gaiam- please make this bag in darker colors. Also- zipper is nice feature as it secures mat and anything inside but zipper does break , as mine did, so needed to get a new bag. Front pocket roomy enough to carry several CD's for yoga music practice, which is not a feature on many of the other yoga bags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PupuPlatter Wish it came in a dark color....
I wish I'd bought this bag instead of the Batik Yoga Mat Bag (which is very attractive, but which has a drawstring closure that doesn't allow the bad to close entirely). I just wish the Damask Bag came in a dark color(s). These items are always placed on the floor and I'm concerned that the beige canvas fabric will show the dirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lexandra Great choice
I debated between this one and the bags with drawstring tops. I'm glad I made the choice I made. This bag is easy to get into and roomy.
