Gym To Win Duffel *Polyester
This bag has everything!
I saw the pictures of this bag and immediatly fell in love with it. I debated getting it over the price, but finally just did it, and I'm sooo happy that I did. This bag is amazing, and Lululemon has literally thought of EVERYTHING!
From the pockets labelled perfectly, to the extra shoe bag it comes with, I'm extremely pleased with this bag. It's the perfect size for a gym bag - easily fits a waterbottle, toileties bag (I have the Mind And Body Kit which is a fair size), lotion, perfume, shoes, clothes, and even my yoga towel. With room to spare!
I brought this to the gym for the first time last night and was worried, because when I went to go hang it up in the locker, it appeared to be too long to be able to close the door! I was SO disappointed. Then of course, I look on the bottom and theres not only yoga mat straps, theres a strap to hang your bag from a locker hook! Like I said, Lululemon thinks of everything.
So happy with this bag, the rosegold details and pattern are beautiful.

Lovely pattern, great sized bag!
I received this bag as a gift, and love the floral pattern - it makes me smile every time I look at it - I usually buy black, and would have bought black if I had purchased it, but I really like the floral.
The size is perfect for me -it fits my gym shoes, socks, locks, ipod, lifting gloves and water bottle with no issues, and is not as bulky or large as my last gym bag. This is a good bag if you only have your gym things to carry - if you need more room for an ipad or school books then this may not be the best bag for you.

Pretty nice, but not sold
I'm an avid runner. In the winter months, I need to take my run to the treadmill in the gym before work. I end up getting ready for work in the locker room. I've been using a shopping tote for 2 years.
I took home 3 bags to determine the best fit for my needs, and packed all three. The bags I tried were the Lulu Gym to Win, The Res Hobo and the Ivivva Got Game.
I packed a sweater and pants, hair dryer, pair of shoes, iPad mini, DVD, two hair brushes, full size shampoo and conditioner, mini bottle of gel, deodorant, mousse, mini hairspray, energy bars, socks,wallet and some sweat bands in the main section. Hair elastics, earbuds and iPod.
The bag zips open pretty wide. But due to the location of the water bottle pockets and straps, it doesn't open completely open. It stands nicely, and doesn't tip over. Lots of pockets. I would probably leave them unzipped, for ease of finding stuff and making it less fidgety. The shoe bag is a nice touch, but my gym shoes are indoor shoes, so they really aren't that dirty. And I'm lazy enough that I wouldn't use it. The outer sweaty stuff zipper area is cool, and I would have to just open that pocket when I got home from work to ditch the stinko gear. But then again, I usually empty the main section to take out the wet stuff, and replace it with clean, and new snacks at night, but whatever.
The straps are nice. I like the ruffle detail around the zipper. I like the outer water bottle holder. The Atomic flower pattern is BEAUTIFUL.
I did not keep this bag. The vertical height was an issue. I struggled to get the bag zipped up. I bet if I had 2cm more in height, it would have been mine forever. I did not need that 2cm in width, I need the height for shoes and clothes. I wish it zipped wider a tiny bit. I really is a shame, it is so pretty and feminine.
I bought the Ivivva Got Game. I reviewed it too.

Atomic Flower Silver Spoon
Love. I wanted to hate this bag because of price but it is so pretty. Every time I walk by it I smile. I love that it's smaller than my other duffel style bag, I love all the pockets, the rose gold detail, the liner bag and the loops on bottom of bag to slide my mat through. It does have a lot of nice detail that make the bag special. Could be a bit cheaper though. I've seen this bag in other prints and passed but this print is a Winner for me.

Bought this bag to replace a previous Lulu bag that was more of a tote/purse. I use it for university every day, and it fits my Chromebook, my textbooks/notebooks & lunch, with a bit of room!
Although it is smaller than your usual dufflebag, it's good for being compact and non-clunky, and I love the amount of different compartments it has for easy organisation. I used this to travel as well, and it was perfect.
If you're looking for an all-in-one for gym, work, etc. I fear it might be a smidgen too small (shoes take up a lot of room, imo) but as a alternative to a backpack, it's fantastic.
Additionally, the two big side pockets are actually very secure, and I shove my 750mL water bottle in there without it falling out, even without the elastic to hold it down.
The only thing I'd really warn about is to not overload (in terms of weight) not because the bag can't take it, but because the straps will really dig into your shoulder if you don't live in a cold climate where you have a thicker jacket/sweater to pad your shoulder. I've definitely had a few red marks from a textbook too many before.
I didn't pay full price for it (yay, gifts!) but would consider it a 5/5 if it was a bit more affordable for interested parties. It absolutely has become an essential in my everyday life.

Bring back the black!
Love the size of this bag- its perfect for a city girl on the go! Not too big- not too small. Any shot we can get this bag back in black for the winter season? Would make the best gift for me and the rest of my family!

I ordered this bag last month and I love it. Fast shipping took no time to recieve it which was great. For the bag itself I love it! I love the color all of the pockets and especially how there labelled!! I am very happy with this bag it does everything I need it to do for the gym. The only thing I would have to suggest for this bag is to have it a little bigger as it seems its a bit smaller then standard gym bags. The other thing I would love would be if the bag had a built in pocket along the bottom for a yoga mat, so the mat is completely covered. I seen a lululemon bag like this once before on lulu's website in the UK or something and I looved the idea. If it was a bit bigger I would have given it 5 stars. All in all the bag is great and of course beautiful!!
