Rated 5 out of 5 by Hilary The perfect gym bag
I was desperate for a great bag to take to the gym that was classy-looking, roomy, light-weight, and had a good spot for my shower stuff (damp flip-flops, shampoo, & other potentially leaky items). This is the best gym bag I have ever owned! The inside is huge, the mesh zip pocket on the outside is perfect for either shower stuff or smelly sneakers, and the straps are the right length to carry either on my shoulder or just in my hand. It's of excellent quality. I would highly recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mama2LoLa Love, Love, LOVE this bag!
I purchased this as I was going through yoga teacher training and am so glad I did! I use it EVERY day - really - and have since I purchased it almost 3 months ago. Be warned - it holds a LOT! Which means it's easy to overstuff and therefore, heavy to carry! I had flip flops, my 1.5" thick binder, 2-3 books du jour (for class), hand towel, sweater, extra top, plus misc. stuff (wallet, make-up bag, wipes, lavender spray, etc., etc.) and yoga mat underneath. There's an interior zip pocket and another bigger pouch type for the misc. stuff. There's a pen holder and also a ring to clip your keys on - LOVE that!! I put my water bottle in one of the outside drink pockets. As one reviewer mentioned, the other side pocket does get too tight for another bottle if the bag is stuffed, so I put my phone and Metro card (I live in NYC) in that pocket for easy access. (Inside the bag on the left side there is a little stretchy pocket so you can put a drink there instead.) I got the green and I swear, every time I'm out I always get at least one compliment on it! Why I didn't give 5 stars is for two small things. First, if you put sneakers in the front mesh, it takes up a lot of the interior room so you won't be able to fit as much as you'd like. Second, the front snap pocket (above the shoe pocket) does not stay snapped shut when you have stuff in the bag and it is also very shallow (about 3" deep) which then renders this pocket useless - my stuff fell out. No biggie though because there's more than enough other room/space/pockets for your stuff. It would have been nice to use this though for my phone and Metro card instead of a side pocket, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Oh well. Overall, I love this bag, I live with this bag and can NOT imagine Life without it! I highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by EmilyRC Functional Bag but less room for beverages!
I really like this bag and am glad I purchased it. It goes a long way in fitting multiple items and I certainly take advantage of this. I fit work stuff, sometimes my laptop, gym clothes, lunch, yoga mat, and water into this thing w/o much problem. My one complaint is that most mornings I have 2 beverages - my water & my protein shake and this bag doesn't do well fitting 2 containers on either side, despite having designated "cup" holders on each side. Once it is packed full, it seems like it can only handle filling 1 holder, since the other one becomes flush against the bag. It may just need to be broken in more, but for the time being, I have to carry one of the beverages when I'd like to be hands free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DivaPeach So happy I purchased this bag!
I purchased this bag since I was tired of carrying my yoga mat and purse and everything else that I thought I would need separately. The bag works great in that I can put my wallet, shoes, yoga mat and whatever else I may need into one bag. I had read some reviews regarding the mat fitting funny underneath and almost didn't buy the bag because of that. But luckily I did and noticed that you can adjust the tension of the straps underneath to make sure your mat is secure. I already had a yoga mat bag, so I still use that so the mat itself won't get dirty when I place my bag on the floor. I've gotten a lot of compliments on this bag and am glad I purchased it.
