I use this to go to the gym. You can use the end pockets for water bottles (holds 2 total, one on each end), and there is also a water bottle pocket inside the bag. I do wish there were just a couple more inside pockets for small items (like my reading glasses). There is only one smaller pocket, and the glasses fall over inside that pocket. There is a hook on the inside, which I like. The two outer side pockets are great for magazines, and I use the inside to hold my tablet, or my cycling shoe bag. Both items fit completely inside. The only other annoyance (which I find with many bags) is that the straps slide off my shoulder as I'm walking. So, if you try to put both straps on your shoulder, one slides off after about 30 seconds. So, a snap would be a nice addition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Michelle01 Not that roomy
Several reviews referred to all the ample storage space, but I wasn't that impressed. Worse, the side pockets for the water bottle are only large enough to hold a pack of gum, certainly not any water bottle I own. The toggle on the cord broke off after 2 weeks. My gym duffel bag I started out with is a lot more durable and roomy, plus it has a shoulder strap!

I got this bag in Chai (brown) ages ago and it's still going strong! The color is maybe just a shade darker than it looks above. Holds my gym clothes plus water bottle, phone, hair brush, etc.
If you want to get a better idea of what this bag looks like in real life, check out the photos of the Everything Fits Bag, which is a larger version of the Metro Bag. I have both :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by tosalsaholic How to fit the yoga mat in the elastic strap!
Beautiful colour and a wonderful size (amazing how
much you can get in such a small bag!).
My only problem is that it isn't easy to get my yoga mat into the stretchy criss-cross elastic straps under the bag Is there a special trick to do this without getting frustrated??!! I bought the bag to replace another yoga mat bag that had a small zippered opening. I figured a stretch cord would be so much easier to use. Not so .
Any words of wisdom & advice on how to get my mat in without having to enlist an assistant would be great!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by buckgilly Disappointed in cinch cord
The cinch cord underneath wore out after about two months. The cord to hold my mat was the reason that I bought the bag. I've since resorted to setting my mat on top of the bag and holding the straps over top. It's not a very elegant solution.
