Gym To Win Duffel *Nylon
Very functional and light
I just decided to splurge on this bag in the purple haze. The bag is very versatile and more functional than the two times a yogi bag which I first considered until I saw it lacked all the pockets and yoga mat carrying straps. The only reason I did not give the bag five stars is that the bottom lacks metal "feet" to protect the fabric. I expect the bottom will get trashed from setting it on rough surfaces. I like the outer pockets on this bag and the two water bottle holders. It is very stylish with the rose gold colored hardware and checked lining so it doesn't look like a gym bag.

I have spent a pretty penny at lulu over the years on run/gym gear and casual wear. However I always hesitated to spend the money on a bag. It's just something to carry stuff in, what's the difference I thought. I finally splurged on this bag and I'm so glad I did. I was using a typical gym duffle bag from one of the big box sports store brands. It was one big opening and thus smaller items like phone, ipod, etc. would get lost. It was also uncomfortable and awkward to carry. This bag is amazing. Light weight and easy to carry but still fits so much stuff. I can easily fit a couple options of gym clothes, towel, running shoes, cosmetic bag, etc. and it fits well and stays organized. So many pockets for my phone, lock and all those little odds and ends that used to get lost in the bottom of my bag. And it is compact enough to fit into a small locker easily. I could also easily see myself using this as a weekend/carry on bag for travel. The colour (purple fog) is gorgeous. All the little details like the pockets, hardware, zipper pulls, emergency hair tie and bag to stow your wet sweaty stuff really make this bag worth the investment. Thank you lulu.

Better than expected and so happy I took a chance!
I purchased this bag to replace my current bag from a few years ago. I previously bought the "Two times a yogi" but the center compartment catered more for a mat in between than actuial storage so I returned it.
I bought this bag in the purple fog colour and it is gorgeous! I like black and grey and this is a purple grey. Not such a fan of purple but this colour almost feels like a neutral. The fabric is really great than the poly versions of other bags.
The bag is such a convenient, packable size. I can fit all of my yoga towels, clothing, lotions etc and more without the bag turning cumbersome and oversized. I can see myself wearing this bag out too. The pockets and carry strap are really great.
I wish it had a better saying inside than "sweat love". The saying in another bag "when in doubt, flow it out" registered more with me. But whatever.

I travel a lot for work and have been looking for the perfect, simple travel bag for years. I was resigned to having to spend a fortune.
Then I saw this bag and it is perfect! It's roomy enough for a few days, has intuitive pockets, long straps, and a shoulder strap. And -- very important -- it will squish under seats or in tight overheads on small planes so you don't have to wait forever for your rollie bag.

LOVE THIS BAG!
I have the previous version of this bag (almost identical) in a deep purple and it is AMAZING! It keeps you very organized whether you are going to the gym or possibly using it as a carry-on. I love the outside pocket for your phone-- super convenient. The cross body strap is also super comfy (even for long hauls like for a carry-on). Also super nice for weekend trips, plenty of room for everything. The quality of the fabric is very nice as well. Definitely worth the price. Love that Lulu decided to add yoga straps to the bottom! I'm ordering it in black right now! Basically- go get it :)
