Drishti Yoga Tote
the only bag you need for a yoga class
I bought this bag in "tides up opal/deep coral" online back in June. When I received the package (very quickly I might add!) I immediately fell in love with the colours. They were much more vibrant than I saw from the pictures online.
This bag has proved to be the only one I really need to take with me to yoga class. In the bag I can fit my Mat, yoga towels, water bottle, phone, keys, etc. I love that I can just pack all I need for class in that bag, throw it in my car and know I have everything for a yoga class.

Cute and functional
I adore this bag. It's extremely easy to slip your yoga mat in and out, as well as store a few extra shorts or clothing in the mesh pocket. The price and fabric is great as well, and I love the little side zipper to store headphones, my gym card, and phone. I love slinging this baby over my shoulder every time I work out!

This bag is perfect for carrying a yoga bag, towel(s), water bottle, clothes, wallet, etc. It makes it so easy to be hands free. It was definitely worth the purchase.

I've had my Drishti tote for several months now and I absolutely love it! I originally had the camo version but after a couple days of people telling me that I looked like I was carrying around a rifle, I decided to get another color instead. Hahaha. I now have the opulent stripe version, which is no longer available because I like to wait a few months before writing what I think. That way- I can write a proper review. I am pleased to say that not only do I love my Drishti yoga mat tote but also I have not had any quality issues. I continue to get compliments all the time because it's so bright and colorful. I carry it as a crossbody on my back making my hands free. I can fit 2 mats, my studio shoes and extra clothes in the main compartment. I use the outside mesh zippered compartment to store my towel, accessories and much more. I was surprised as to how much I can fit in the tote! It unzips open really wide, making it easy to store or take your mat out. Another bonus is that you can take the carrying strap off to use as a stretching strap. Prior to this I was using my Loop It Up Strap or I would attach my mat to the handles of my Happy Hatha bag. This is so much more convenient! I hope Lululemon comes out with more colors because I think black bags are boring and since I have several mats, I would love to get another one. At $48, it's affordable considering how functional it is! Great job Lululemon!

Switched from yoga strap to this bag and I love it
I switched from a lululemon yoga strap to this bag about 6 months ago when the camo version of this bag came out. I'll be honest...I bought it mainly because it was camo, even though I didn't "need" it. But I'm so glad I did. Here are the reasons why:
- No more struggling to snap my yoga strap around my mat and roll it up to the perfect width.
- Plenty of extra space. I have "the mat" which I adore, and I can pack my yoga towel inside the big pocket with the mat. I've also put a bangbuster, yoga mat cleaner, and water bottle in the outer pocket. It fits soooo much!
- It protects my mat, which I leave in my car, from getting dust and car particles on it.
I'm really happy with this purchase!

Great Bag for Hands Free Commute
I bought this bag so that I could easily bike to my hot yoga class in nice weather. I use a relatively smaller yoga mat so there is plenty of additional space within the bag to store my yogitoes towel, hand towel and a change of clothes. Very practical bag for an affordable price.

WOW JUST what I needed
So I have a Namaste yoga tote 2 and let me tell you, the drishti bag was worth every penny. I was so sick of "fighting" my mat into that bag. This bag open all the way so you can calmly place it in the tote after a nice shavasana. Plus bonus points for other pockets to place my keys and towel. Now I can just roll with my bag, instead of my bag with all my other items in my hands. Good job LLL!

I originally chose this bag in camouflage. I switched to Secret Garden print. Of course I was freaked out that the print would be too "showy". Instead it's a fabulous print on a fabulous bag. Before today, I'd carry my mat with the Lulu strap with my keys, phone & water bottle all flopping around. This makes much more sense.

better than the namaste iii
1. Much easier to get your sweaty mat into the opening- zipper opens almost like a duffel bag.
2. Like the Namaste iii, I can fit my "The Mat" and my towel in my main compartment, but that was it. I like to bring a change of clothes to my class and I was unable to fit all of this in my Namaste bag. However, in this bag, I am able to fit my change of clothes in the mesh pocket.
3. I like the idea of my sweaty clothes and towel, being able to "air out" just a little before I bring them home.
In conclusion- on the fence about which bag? I'd go with this one :-)

Love this bag! Bought it in black. Very well made and hold my mat and more!!! I have a larger Prana mat and it's hard to find bags for the larger mats.
