Drishti Yoga Tote
I have quite a number of mat bags and I always like "larger" mat bags because I always bring tonnes of stuffs to yoga class... like my yoga paws, towels, bottles, keys, money, just to name a few.
Drishti Mat Bag provides sufficient room for all my items but I don't really like its material, as in, it has this "collapsible" feeling and not very sturdy for its weight.
The one extremely good point is the strap that can double as a yoga strap, just for that little bonus, this bag is extremely worthy to get. It fits my lululemon mat very well (of course) but I do need to roll it up very snugly if I want to fit in my yoga towel without looking like a pregnant bag.
The colours I got was a pink/red one (which I don't see on this site) and the colour is absolutely vibrant and aesthetically I felt amazing carrying the bag around.

Perfect weather-proof tote
Recently purchased this tote on a rainy day when my lulu mat was getting soaked before yoga. It was an impulse purchase, but worth every penny. My mat fits wonderfully into this tote and stayed dry! The tote has nice clean lines and the strap is extremely comfortable to wear across my chest (I wear the tote like a quiver diagonally across my back). Only downside is that I likely won't be getting much use out of the mesh pocket on the outside - rain and snow will deter me from putting dry clothes where they can be soaked. Solution? Keep them on the inside because there is loads of space!
Thanks lululemon, this bag rocks.

Best Yoga Bag Award!
And the winner is...the Drishti Yoga Tote! I just bought this bag in the petal camo fuel green color at the Little Rock store & hope it will last forever. It looks sturdy - has so many functional details that the fabric + features, & other reviewers have already pointed out. The petal camo fuel green pattern looks so elegant & has much more depth in person. And it's just the right weight, even with my mat & essentials in the bag. Fantastic job, Lulu design team!
(And a many thanks to the LR staff who always take their time to really educate & show me LLL products. They're also always ready to listen to my feedback!)

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!
