Drishti Yoga Tote
I love this bag! I bought the multi floral color and it's beautiful. I bought it for the 5mm mat, towel and to carry other a couple other items in it. It is worth it to buy this, since the 5mm mat is a little heavy (esp after class!) The lightweight material of this bag doesn't add any weight to what you are carrying which is a very nice feature.
The only flaw was one of the ribbon zipper pulls fell off before I used it. I'll be taking the one I bought back but will buy a replacement, as I'm hoping that was a one-time issue (which is why I'm giving 5 stars). The only other unfortunate issue has more to do with The Mat- the odor of the rubber has transferred to the bag since it has been in it. Hopefully it doesn't last.
Other than that I love it and it is something I have been recommending to friends

I can fit my Manduka eko mat and 2 towels in the main compartment rolled up and water bottle with room remaining lengthwise. The outside mesh holds a complete change of clothes. The zipper pocket holds phone, keys, change wallet.

I'm In Love
I love this bag! It is the perfect size for my 6mm mat, an extra change of clothes, my towel and all my other random things I bring to class with me! The fabric is beautiful, the color is amazing. I'm absolutely in love with this bag. So happy with my purchase.

Great bag for my Mat!
I think this bag is excellent! I am able to fit The Mat, my towel, my water bottle, a couple of cards (license/studio card), a pair of leggings, a tank and a small make up/toiletry bag in without any issues!
I usually fold my towel up and place it on top of my mat, slip my make up bag in there on top of the mat as well and put my clothes in the mesh pocket on the exterior. I use the small zip-up pocket for my cards and keys.
I love this bag. It's lightweight and convenient.

i wanted to love this bag - it says it "holds all your gear" - its turning out to be way too small for me. Its fits the mat of course, but add any other gym essentials (shoes, towel, small makeup bag) and its not working. I suppose if you just use it to go directly to yoga its fine, but if you're staying at the gym for any reason or have anything else to do afterwards, you'll need an extra bag.

This bag is to small to hold my THE MAT and The TOWEL with the rubber background. Really bummed. Tried it a few different ways. Doesn't work for the purpose it is made for. :( Not useful.

so cute and functional
I love the pattern of this bag and how easy it is to fit your mat AND everything else in it. I store my 3 mm lulu mat and my gym clothes and makeup wipes AND other misc items in here. It fits everything -- which is why I only gave it 4 stars. It is almost too long and too roomy for an avg mat. It's like it was meant to fit the larger mat from Lulu and the 3mm is just moving around in it.
Overall though I'm glad I got it!

Mobile training Bag
If you ever met me, you know I am often told "I carry my life with me" that being said I NEED bags that can hold a lot. I don't actually use this bag primarily for yoga. (Sometimes, when I make it to a class) I use it to bring gear to and from training sessions and its perfect! This morning I fit several bands, 4 pylons, 2 boxing gloves, an agility ladder, walking poles, and a few other small essentials. I do agree a water bottle holder outside the bag would be an amazing extra. I do like the smaller zipper pocket so I can quickly find my cellphone & keys. I also like how long the strap is because it is then able to fit over my backpack while I bike. Great bag, awesome colour :)
I do wish you would make darker colours for the waterproof bag because as a biker, I don't mind biking in the rain but white would get very dirty and gross looking very quickly, totally would opt for black or navy blue.

Good bag I used often, needs water bottle holder
I use this bag frequently and it is a good way to carry my mat to class rather than using a strap, especially when you are on a bicycle.
It's reasonably roomy to fit most things in although sometimes I find it a challenge when I do a hot yoga class. It is hard to fit a cylindrical water bottle in it as well as my clothes, toiletries and shower sandals. Clothes are easy to confirm to any shape but water bottle cylinders are not.
What would earn it the 5th star is...
- pocket outside for water bottle/umbrella (gives more carrying capacity)
- put the mesh pocket INSIDE the bag to protect contents from rain
- make the overall bag a bit bigger for clothes, airplane-size toiletries
- add a daisy chain on the outside to strap on anything extra, or to make the bag strappable to another bag... so I can add a mat holder to my other backpack by strapping the Drishti bag onto it.
Still, I like the bag and happy with it. It was great to use when I was riding my bicycle to the studio (wearing it cross-body). It's still comfortable to wear on one shoulder + backpack for work gear. (I don't have a Cruiser backpack and it rains out here.)

I love love love this bag! I love that there is enough space to fit any size of mat. After hot yoga I like to roll my matt up with my towel still on it, which causes my mat to be slightly thicker and this bag holds it perfectly with still lots of room to spare. I like the little corner air holes that allows the sweaty mat to breathe and the front zipper pocket is perfect for the other loose odds and ends you need to bring to class. The zippers are so smooth and very durable and the adjustable straps are sooo nice!
I love the bag!!!
