Rated 5 out of 5 by akkis Amazing bag!
It took me a bit to purchase this bag, since it's rather expensive and the duffel I'm using right now is passable. However, as soon as it arrived I forgot my trepidation! The bag is sturdy, a great size, and full of compartments for organization and storage. And when you put shoes or a sturdy item in the vented pouch, it creates more nooks on the inside for specialized storage! I don't understand reviews that say the bungee cord for the yoga mat is too loose. My mat (3mm thick) fits perfectly and is held quite tight! My only question: What is that shallow, snapped pocket on the front just above the vented pouch for? I can't figure out what to put in it!

The bag is a great essential item; I use it for Bikram Yoga and at the end of a hot and sweltering 105 degree, 90 minute session, its perfect for storing drenched yoga clothes; the various compartments make it a must for organization of all your essentials. The clean, compact, yet roomy design make it portable. The fabric is high-grade and will with-stand years of use. For the price, I think it's a great value and would even make an excellent gift for the yogi or yogini in your life! =)

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnSeeker Love this bag!
Based upon several reviews on the website, I ordered this bag in purple (my favorite color). I have used it for a few weeks as my primary gym bag and my back-up yoga bag for when I need to carry blocks and straps. It has performed beautifully and fits a ton of stuff. My only hesitation in giving the appearance 4 stars out of 5 is that the stretchy cords at the base of the bag for holding a yoga mat seem a bit thin and may stretch out & sag with a bit with use. I plan on ordering another bag, this time in black for my primary yoga bag - it's that good!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Latina8 Too expensive - Overpriced
I was looking for a gym back that was both good quality without looking too manly. Came across this one and bought it because it looks ok in the photo. Once I received it, it was not a good material for a gym bag. I went to see UA outlet and I could have gotten a much nicer, higher quality gym bag there for only $30, which is half of the cost of this one... Bad decision on my part, but you live and learn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnaK Great bag and very pretty.
This bag got a lot of compliments from my yoga teacher and classmates.
It is roomy. However, it is only a weekend bag if you are traveling very light. I stuffed my jeans and sweater and long sleeeved shirt in it after yoga class and still had room but . . .
I particularly like the mesh pocket that I plan to use for my swimsuit when I go to the gym.
It is such a pretty color that I hate to use it because I don't want to get it dirty.
It seems very well made. The Gaiam logo is attractive and not obtrusive -- I don't like advertising a product that I carry.
I like that it stands up when you set it down and the top opens widely so it's easy to put stuff in. I would like more pockets for toiletries.
Yes, it's not cheap but it's worth it to me.
