Rated 3 out of 5 by JJJJJ Well organized. Poor quality.
For organization & looks this should get 4 stars but because of the price and quality I can only rate this average.
I'll start with the disappointing. As others have mentioned, the quality control on this bag is definitely lacking. Out of the packaging I could see along the top the fabric had been cut so terribly that it was too small to meet the seam under the handle. You can easily see the foam lining under it. Any sort of quality control inspector should have seen this, it is dead center on the top of the bag and a good 4inches long. I've used craft glue to tack it down, b/c in the end this is a gym bag and I'm not going to be too precious with it. But I did spend a bit on this bag expecting it to last. Now I'm not so sure it will.
Ok. So now the good. Obviously, despite the above I kept this bag. It's just too well organized. I love the mesh compartment for my gym shoes. It's big enough I can put shower flip-flops and light weight running shoes in there. The inside leaves me plenty of room for my workout clothes, change of socks/underwear, a quart size pack of toiletries and a make-up bag. Plus some days I stuff a hoody in there too. It is larger than I expected to take on transit, but the amount I can fit in here is just amazing and it makes packing for the gym so much better.
Bottom line: don't expect perfection and buy it on sale if you can.

Love the size, the color (black), the compartments in the bag and outside of it. I saw this on a Youtube video, being used as a carry on bag, and I thought- what an excellent idea! I've used it to travel with and it travels really well. I'm not worried about spilling liquid on it, as it's so easily washable. The shoe compartment is a great addition. I hope this bag lasts my travel time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rossemary Great Bag!
I purchased this bag after reading the great reviews online and I must say they are spot on! The bag is versatile and spacious. I love the section for shoes, that's were I stuff my shower sandals and lufa. The bag also maintains its shape regardless of how much i put in there. I didnt rate it excellent because some of the stitching is coming off the back pocket but its super minor - will continue to monitor it though and let the Gaiam team know if it does fully come apart. Otherwise great bag!

Rated 3 out of 5 by DeeLJ Just Ok
The bag is roomy and yes everything fits but in an awkward sort of way. For example the yoga mat 'carriage' underneath needs a bit of improvement. Perhaps a Velcro strap mechanism would be best. Having to slide my mat in and out of this bungee like cord is just to much work. Secondly the pocket for the shoes impedes on the bag's internal space therefore decreasing what can fit inside. I feel this bag is worth it if using for an overnight trip or you are carrying just your studio clothing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cara22 Not worth the price
When I first got this bag, I loved it. It's cute and fits a lot. However, after using it for a few months the bag went downhill. Pockets started ripping, the snap on the back pocket fell off. The shoe pocket ripped, making it useless because it doesn't actually keep the shoes separated from everything else in the bag. It's cute, but really not worth the money because of how quickly it breaks.
