Sweat Once A Day Bag
same thing happened to me
I also purchased this in the blue color about 9 weeks ago. I too have received MANY compliments on my bag. BUT in the last 2 weeks my color has also begun to chip away. Very disappointing. yes, I purchased on WMTM but it should still last longer than 7 weeks. It is odd, as the bag still looks brand new except for little white dots where the paint came off..

loved the bag....at first :(
I work in a gym and use this bag daily to carry a change of clothes and my laptop. I loved it at first. The colour (deep zinfandel) is perfect and I received lots of compliments. However, after normal, daily use the bag is starting to wear at the handles and the piping on the bottom. I was once a proud lulu addict but I'm tired of being disappointed in the products. At this price point I expect to get more than 3 months out of it.

I just received my bag today so can't speak for durability but cuteness I can definitely comment on--love it!!! It is unfortunate that when spending 128.00 you need to be concerned about durability-for that much money, I expect a bag to last. But obviously I am willing to take the chance. I really hope that mine stands up better than some of the reviews I read. It was the few recent new positive reviews that made me decide to try one. I wanted something bigger than the bucket type Lulu bag I bought last year, but not as big as a duffel bag. I think the size is exactly right for what I am looking for--day bag or travel bag mostly. I read bottle holder in the description and assumed it was the size of a small water bottle, but it actually holds my large stainless steel one. I was already in love with the bag then realized I hadn't even unzipped the main compartment all the way--unzipped it is wide open, easy to access inside. I love the old school feel too--reminds me of my old Adidas bag! I don't think the photo actually shows how cute this bag is.

Not built to last
When I saw this bag I thought it would be perfect for me and was so excited to order it, as there is no lululemon close to where I live. I do a lot of travelling for work, so I thought it would be a great carry-on piece, as well functional from going from the office to the gym.
I literally used this bag once on a trip. All I did was carry it on my shoulder and place it in the overhead compartment of the air plane and there are chips in the polyurethane-covered piping already. Not a nice look. I can't imagine what it will look like with normal use!

love this bag!
I bought this bag as a Christmas gift to myself, but never felt compelled to review it until now. I read a lot of negative reviews about durability, but I can honestly say mine has held up really well. I have used it consistently 3-5 times a week to go to the gym, and it was worth every penny. It still looks brand new to me. I've been able to fit my runners, towels, phone, weight gloves, plus multiple water/shake bottles in it. And there's still lots of room for smaller items. After 3 months of consistent use, I can say it has performed extremely well - and done everything it's meant to do!

The perfect bag
I bought this bag in cobalt blue. I have used it, and no paint chips have come off the bag. It's still in mint perfect condition!! I was a little worried as reading some of the reviews, stated that the quality of this bag is poor. But in my experience, I have had no problems at all with it.
I love the color, the style, and the functionality of this bag. I use it to and from the gym.

I decided to add my review after reading quite a few of the ones posted because I absolutely love my Sweat Once A Day bag. I purchased the white/black and did have reservations about the white becoming dirty but fell in love with the pink highlights. (All my previous Lululemon bags have been black.) I use my bag almost daily either for the gym or yoga. After 2 months of it being in the back of my SUV, stuffed in gym lockers and sitting under my desk at work not to mention commuting on the train, this bag still looks brand new. It fits more than I thought (2 pairs of shoes, clothes, water bottle, resistance bands, towel, wallet, keys and room left for more!). Either I am more careful with my bag than others, or the other colours are made of a lesser quality material. I am so happy with my bag I will be putting it to a weekend test on my next getaway.

The quality needs improvement, REALLY.
I don't remember when I gave only 1 star to Lulu product reviews, or maybe never? But I have to say the other reviews about this bag's quality issue were right. I got my Deep Zinfandel bag the day it was uploaded, and excited for the whole Christmas. I started to use it about one and half month ago, with greatest care (is it sounds funny that I put a big clear plastic bag in my Lulu bag, so I can put my Lulu bag on it wherever I have to leave my bag)? However, the stitches of this bag's zipper started a big open about 3 inches, I am so sad that happened this soon, because I love my bag very much, I tried to fix it by myself, but I really don't know what will come next. I would give 5stars for its fabulous color, size and design, but zero star for its quality at this price point. Why, because my $40 gym bag had no this kind of problem after 2 years of hard use.

Please make this bag come in pink! Ive been watching this bag for months waiting for it to come in pink and I don't want to miss the mint green if it is never going to be made in pink! :(

Wearing Terribly After 1 Month
Do not buy this bag. Yes it looks great & the functionality of it (laptop sleeve, water bottle holder, zipper pockets, etc.) seemed smart, but the exterior construction is atrocious. I used this bag for about a month, taking appropriate care of it - I never set it down on a dirty surface and never tossed it around. I was careful with it, which, in retrospect, is kind of silly being that at the end of the day this is a GYM bag, not a designer leather bag.
That being said, after only carrying it here and there for about a month, the corners and polyurethane-covered piping on the bottom are completely chipped away and wore HORRIBLY. The corners and bottom of the bag no longer were covered by the black polyurethane, they were exposed to the off white color that the bag/piping material is constructed of. Also, the seams by the zipper somehow came undone and began fraying.
It seems frivolous to write a review of a product when you first buy it, because obviously you like the aesthetic or design of the item you're buying. I am sure that the star rating of this item will plummet if people wait a month or so to write their reviews. I was elated when I received this item as a gift a month ago, but this was one of the poorest wearing items I have ever purchased.
I returned this bag today and exchanged it for the Om For All bag; I hope to have better experience with that one.
