Two Times A Yogi Bag
Almost a great bag, not living up to expectations
I need a bag that can tote my work items and double as a gym bag for my during or after work workouts. I sometimes carry both a laptop and an iPad, along with my phone and chargers. (All this, and my gym clothes)
What I like: the color, the double zipper and wide opening. Separate compartments for laptop/tablet and dirty clothes. The exterior pocket for the phone.
What I don't like: it hurts! With all that stuff in the bag, it is very uncomfortable to carry, the straps dig, and/or slip constantly. With gym clothes only, it is still awkward and the straps slip. My car is parked far from the office so this means a long trek to the building struggling with the bag. No matter what is in the bag, the straps slip. I used to use the vino to vinyasa bag and now I wish I had kept it, as I didn't have this problem. I don't want to have to carry a purse and a gym bag, and a laptop bag, so this seemed like a good alternative. I wish this was working for me because I get a lot of compliments on the style - it just doesn't look like a gym bag.
On a side note, I wish there was an exterior zipper pocket where you could stash easy to reach stuff, like keys or work/gym badge. I hate having to dig for this stuff at the bottom of a big bag, but there is nowhere else to put it. The interior mesh pockets are ok, but too small for much, and I can't fit my hand in the dividers so am constantly digging things out with my fingers.
And why would you combine a water bottle pocket with phone pocket? that just seems like an accident waiting to happen!

prefer the 2013 bags
those bags from last year - aubergine & cream coloured where much more sophisticated for city life. Can you bring something similar back? The colours where fantastic, but I did not act quickly enough.
Also, silly question maybe - but what is the name of the model of NB shoes on picture 7? I am trying to find similar shoes and loved this!

Could have been the best ever
It's just sad, real real sad. I wanted to disregard what other previous reviewers had said, but it's undeniable, this is only almost the perfect bag. It has all the right pockets, you can dress it up or down, really incredibly attractive overall...EXCEPT, the complete deal breaker, it's doesn't stay on your shoulders. I wanted to keep it so badly I went into my local store to see if anyone there had come up with some sort of creative solution. The two employees I spoke with said they just "deal" with it.
Nooooooo, what the heck lulu designers, are you so busy that you don't have time to actually use what you make? Well, take some time off so you can be as frustrated as I was using your product. Or at least read the reviews. Oh how I long for the days of old lulu

multi-purpose to-go bag
I love this bag! I have the "Two times a yogi bag" but made from the grey fabric material. I bought it because I needed something that was functional for me to use, to and from work. I also wanted something that was stylish and practical for work. I used to carry a purse, a gym bag and lunch bag and just found it to be too overwhelming. Because I go to the gym on my lunch at work, I needed something that would hold my wallet, keys, lunch and agenda but also have a separate compartment to hold my gym clothes. This bag does all of that! I can easily throw all my personal items in the middle compartment and use the side pocket to carry my gym clothes in. Once I'm done working out I use the separate laundry bag (which come with the yogi bag) to keep my sweaty gym clothes separated from my running shoes. The only thing I can complain about is that when the bag is on your shoulders it tends to slide down or off. Other than that the bag is amazing and let's me carry everything is one, very stylish yogi bag.

New favorite fall bag!
I fell in love with the burnt gold color, read a few not so good reviews but I wasn't going to let myself be deterred. I received it today and blew my expectations out of the water. Not only does it fit my laptop & yoga mat but it even has a water bottle holder! The bag has so many great qualities, my favorite being the cute sayings that can be found on different parts of the inside bag. This is by far my favorite lululemon bag to have whether its going to school, yoga or work it does it all!

Doesn't stand up to everyday use or weight.
I bought the two times a yogi bag in Bordeaux about a month and a half ago at my local store. Despite hearing poor reviews from others about lululemon bags I decided to take the plunge and purchase my very first one.
This bag has not stood up to everyday use (School, work and gym). The zippers keep sticking, and even my rose gold hardware has begun to rusk due to rain exposure. I was also told that it was suppose to be tested to hold up to 50 pounds, however, the straps are already ripping at the seams from just carrying my laptop and lunch. The sewing/threading has also begun to unravel.
I am extremely disappointed with this bag, and probably won't be purchasing another one from Lululemon for a while...

Let me start by saying I love lululemon. Except this bag. After a month the seems started to rip. And as I was getting hemming done the girl at the store noticed. She said I should e mail the company and let them know. 3 emails later and no response, I guess Ill write a review and upload pictures pertaining to the specific bag. Maybe mine was a lemon?? No pun intended.. ;) I am a flight attendant and get compliments on the bag all of the time, but unfortunately I warn them about the quality.

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
