Two Times A Yogi Bag
Pretty bag and functional
I bought this bag in the plum colour and it is a gorgeous bag. I am between the gym and an office for work all the time and use this bag as an oversized purse/gym bag. It fits a lot of items and I like that it has lots of pockets for everything. I have had a lot of lull bags and they always stay in good shape so it may be a bit pricey but I hope it lasts a long time. Out of all of my lulu bags I had one that wore out on the leather strap and that is why I bough this one (to replace it).

Just got the bag today
I just got the bag today and even though I cant comment on how well it performs, I can say that it does look aesthetically pleasing. However, the one recommendation I have for lulu is a waterbottle holder for this bag. If this bag is truly meant for to-and-from, It MUST have a bottle holder. I drink tons of water each day and use a refillable water bottle. I have another lulu bag I use and it also does not have a bottle holder. Consequently, I end up putting the bottle in with my macbook, textbooks and so fourth which should NOT be in the presence of any potentially leaky bottle. Spending hours at the university & late nights at the gym, I really do need a bag that can do it all. #studentlife

Purple Fog is Gorg!!
This bag was love at first sight and I couldn't resist! :) I like that the color is not an over the top, obnoxious purple. The muted purple makes it ultra feminine yet classy. Aside from looks, this bag is functional and practical. Spacious for all my gear yet not too big. I also love that it is a multi-purpose bag. I will be using it for yoga class, the gym, over-night and week-end trips as well as my carry-on for airline travel. Its pretty AND practical. What more could I want... :) Love it! <3

I was soo excited to have this bag, as it accommodates school needs, as well as dance needs. I've used the bag for 3 days and purchased it just over 2 weeks ago and the bag is breaking.... the zipper has come off 3 1/2 inches or so on the one side of the bag in this short of time.... I'm hoping lulu will do something about it, because even though this bag broke, i want to give the company the benefit of the doubt that this was just a dud...

awesome for travel
I've always wanted a lulu bag, but kept waiting to find one that was right for what I wanted. I specifically bought this bag for airline travel and it's perfect. It's big enough to hold a lot of things- a couple outfits, my rain jacket, a warm packable jacket, flip flops, my wallet, passport, e-reader etc. My 15 in laptop also fits nicely into the padded pouch. I like to sleep on planes and the mat strap was perfect to hold a travel pillow. It also slid right under the seat no problems. The loss of a star is because I would have liked a cross-body strap as it can be heavy once loaded up. However to deal with the strap slippage I did as had been suggested by another person and just by crossing one strap over the other on my shoulder this was much less.
I now use it for my daily life and so far, it's great. I have the Bordeaux and it's a beautiful bag that I get many compliments on!

Before I bought this bag, I was trying to decide between this and the Gym To Win Duffel Bag. I commute into NYC for both school and work and go to the gym and workout classes while I am there. So I wanted a bag that would be versatile enough to bring to all those locations. I ultimately chose this one because of all the pockets that could store a laptop, books, etc; while other compartments could store my workout clothes. Although its very aesthetically pleasing, using this bag was sadly disappointing. First, the straps on this bag are extremely slippery because of the material. It is difficult to carry this bag and not have the straps falling off your shoulders when you're on the go. Secondly, the weight of the bag itself is pretty heavy because of the material, so I could not bring as many things as I needed because the bag was already heavy with just a few things inside. Carrying it around all day hurts my shoulders. I'm even too scared to bring my yoga mat around, because I know it'll be too heavy to carry with that on top. I wish I could exchange it for the Gym to Win bag, but the strict return policy will not allow me to do so. My advice is to try out the other bags in store before purchasing this one.

Although I love this bag, I would love to see a version that's shorter in length -- not necessarily for use as a yoga bag. A bag that can be used for everyday to and from and sweatiness, just not long enough to attach a yoga mat... e.g. Petunia Pickle Bottom bags!

BRING BACK THE PURPLE
My friend snagged the last of these in purple from our local store and I have been on pins and needles waiting for the purple color to come back! I go gaga over her bag every time she uses it, and I have been known to "borrow" it for long periods of time! PLEASE bring back the purple color so I can have one of these for my own!

Love love love this bag! It is exactly what I was looking for and everything about it is functional and aesthetically pleasing.
I was also very happy with Lululemon's customer service. I had originally purchased one of the All Day Asana Tote and really did not like it. It did not keep its shape at all when and it was very hard to get my mat in and out of the side straps. I purchased the bag from a Pure Barre location and no longer had the receipts. I had even used the bag but I was able to exchange the All Day Asana for this one no questions asked. Very impressed with the customer service and quality of Lululemon products.

Nice bag for traveling
I bought this bag specifically for airline travel, and for a more stylish option for carrying my kindergartener's gear to her after-school activities.
For traveling it worked beautifully. I love that the compartments are all top-zipped, which makes everything easy to reach if your bag is under the airline seat in front of you. One outer zip compartment was for my laptop and the other was for passport, book, etc. There is also a small pocket between the straps on the outside where my cellphone fits nicely so it was very easy to reach as well.
I only took one star off for:
- the removable strap that goes on top to hold a yoga mat or scarf. The strap hooks on at both ends like a bra strap, which is great, but lululemon did not include a replacement strap and I can see myself losing this strap eventually.
- the shoulder straps could have been a bit more comfortable (made slightly padded) given that the bag can get heavy once a laptop and other gear are in it.
Overall a really nice bag and I am glad I bought it. I bought one in bordeaux but I saw the black in person and it is equally as pretty.
