All Day Asana Tote
Very stylish, functional bag. Bought it as an airplane carry-on and it has become my daily go-to bag for work and working out. Holds a lot and holds up to being thrown around. I wish Lulu would use the waxed canvas from some of the old mens' bags instead of the polyurethane for the base and other places needing to be more rugged.
My main complaint is the snaps on the inside pouch: anything more than my passport and a pack of gum and the magnetic snaps wouldn't hold the pouch attached to the inside of the bag. Magnetic snaps are great for closures, but not so great when they need to be load-bearing.
Also, what is the strap on the inside of the pouch for? (Has "all day I dream about handstands" printed on it). One night on vacation in Mexico I used the pouch as a clutch, but turned it inside out so the strap could be, well, a strap. This was a great multi-purpose, but could have been better if it was a reversible zipper so the tassle could have been on the outside.

Perfect Carry All for Travel
I am so happy that I purchased this bag, especially for travelling. The lightweight flexibility means that I can fold it up small to fit in a suit case, and then take out for day trips to the beach, shopping, etc. I love that the bag zips opens very wide, and has tons of room inside.
The option to take out the inside zippered pocket is awesome as well. It's floppy and lacks structure, but that is what this bag is, and I wouldn't have purchased it if I wanted something structured. I read a lot of reviews that said theirs had glue stains, but mine did not have any.

Great for travel!!!
Love the straps outside of the bag to hold a yoga mat--or in my case, my travel pillow! Love how roomy it is--I can fit so much in it and it's so light that it's a great travel bag! When I travel, I can just place my purse in it and all my quick important travel needs while still have a rolling carry-on (the tote acts as my purse) so it's just great! But because it's so light, it doesn't stand on it's own. Which is fine... I was really looking for a super light travel bag and this fits the bill! It's a catch all for my travel needs. Especially the quick access outside pocket for my phone (and my boarding pass and i.d.). Just makes my life easier. Oh and I bet it's a great beach bag... the outside straps could hold your beach towel... i'll try that next! By the way... I got the all black. I'm happy with that because black goes with everything and anything--gym, travel, yoga, beach!

Got this bag, truly versatile, cleverly designed - especially for someone like myself who really at the end of the day just wants one bag for everything rather than one purse and then another book bag.
However, I had to return and then get another one because I noticed these glue stains on the bottom - bleh.
Finally when I got my bag, very thoroughly excited to get it going, but have noticed with the first time of taking it out, it collects marks very easily - especially anything white. I thought I could dab it with water, no can do. I'm pretty vigilant about belongings - especially when they cost this much!
Now all paranoid for it getting all white marked by the end of the month :(

big for a packed day without sacrificing style!
This bag was WAY bigger than I expected- but in a good way! For those days where I go from a 6am barre class to a full day with no time for bag changes-this bag will do it all. The bag itself is lightweight with a removable large pouch to store some items in. Also theres an outdoor pocket for your phone-love!! I like the fabric because if it gets smelly or stained I can just toss it in the washer. Great buy!

This bag is beyond what I expected. I needed a new travel/every day bad so I decided to get the solid black. I was originally going to order it but decided to go to the store. So glad I did because I fell in love with the black and coral strapped one. It is so light weight and great for everyday wear. Great for traveling as well as a gym bag. Might be the best Lulu bag I own!!! Extra perk...less pockets which is nice for a change!

I absolutely love this tote! Its true to its description of polyester fabric with a sturdy base, which i love because it fits anywhere and is easy to store. The removable pouch is also great for me since i like to store my gym lock and other small things separately from my gym clothes. For me, this is the perfect everyday/gym bag!

Love this bag but..
I ordered this bag online and Just received it 2 days ago. I was so happy when it came to me because the sheer lemon colour is too cute and it is such a lightweighted bag. I was in love with this bag until I found 2 glue stains on the bag! I immediately went to a Lululemon store to exchange to another one but they don't carry the sheer lemon ones in store. Now I have to re-purchase another one online again and wait for another week..

Great bag for multiple activities - love the detachable interior pouch for wallet/phone/etc. Perfect bag for the pool as it can carry a full towel and change of clothes. Yes the bag doesn't have a lining but the poly is sturdy and unless you carry around a ton of knives it shouldn't be a problem. The pink/stripe/floral pattern is super unique, which is obviously the main reason I bought it. Slightly overpriced for a tote but I love it.

Great lightweight bag
I had to have this bag after seeing it in the store. The pattern is very cute. I read one review about the bag being expensive for what it is. In my opinion, it is a great price for a lightweight bag. (Think Longchamp). It's functional, fashionable, and carries all of the essentials for a long weekend, after-work workout, etc. without looking like a gym bag or a duffel bag.
