Work It Out Duffel
I work out at home, so I don't need a gym bag. I got this to use for traveling as my purse on the plane. It is larger than I need, but I couldn't find anything else I like as well. This has all the pockets and space I want and then some. What would be perfect for travel would be a larger version of the wonderful DTB duffel with an outside pocket for a boarding pass. I know you aren't a travel company, Lululemon, but please consider it.

Love the bag- Hate that the strap is gonna rip off
I fell in love with this bag, as I was looking for something that travels well as a carry-on for air travel. I bought it in September and have used it three times. I noticed yesterday that the anchor that holds on the shoulder strap is ripping off. I could feel it unraveling as I stood in line to board. For a bag that costs $150+ with tax, this was NOT the quality I was expecting.

I love this bag!! I have been waiting a while to get a duffle and I'm really glad I did. This bag has so many pockets and is very sturdy. So far I've only used it to and from the gym but I plan on using it as my carry-on for an upcoming trip and think it will be perfect!
Great job lulu!!

Great everyday work / gym bag
i had the lulu "move it" messenger bag which i loved but this bag holds a lot more stuff and it is easier to get at everything. i can very easily fit my laptop, sneaks, gym outfit, water bottle, and a couple of cosmetic cases inside. the zippered pockets on the outside make things like keys and subway pass easy to access, and i've been using the open pocket above the two zip pockets for my cell - i agree with a prior poster that the phone pocket on the end of the bag isn't conveniently placed. the double straps snap together and easily fit over the shoulder. one con is that i have a large laptop which doesn't fit into the padded pocket - i would say that pocket isn't big enough to store much beyond an ipad or possibly one of the smallest mac laptops. but my laptop fits fine in the bottom of the bag and with the large zipper it is easy to open and find everything. definitely recommended. one question though - what is this weird little strap for?? i can't figure out what it is or how i'm supposed to use it!

Great quality, but a bit on the heavy side
I just got turned on to Lululemon this summer. Although I love Lululemon apparel, I have always been a bit skeptical about Lululemon bags.. They all seemed a bit "plasticky" or cheap looking and I am also a bit of a bag snob... However, I have to say that this duffel (which I got in Iris) is gorgeous and is made out of a very nice quality material; it's like Prada meets Lululemon... It's feminine in a subtle way, but not overly floral. (I also got the scuba in Iris, which I adorbe).
The only down side is that it is on the heavy and bulky side. I wouldn't feel comfortable using it as a bag for daily public commute on crowded subways.

I love this bag! Use it as my gym/yoga bag. Fits my gym clothes, shoes, pool stuff, yoga mat and everything else I need seamlessly. I love that the straps are large enough to wear it over your shoulder or you can use the actual shoulder strap. I have gotten many compliments on it!

A lot of bag. Not a lot of room.
My old gym bag's zipper recently broke and I was so excited to splurge on a nice lulu bag to replace it. This bag is really well made, but there's so much fabric to hold all the pockets together that there's not much room for all the stuff that needs to go in the bag. Maybe my problem is that I wear a size 11 shoe so my sneakers take up more than half the volume of the bag itself, but it's just not big enough for a gym bag. Lulu needs a bigger selection of bags of all sizes and could do a better job describing what the bag can hold. There's no way I could fit sneakers, pants, a top, a sports bra, and shower stuff (I don't usually carry that with me, but the description claims that shouldn't be a problem). I can't imagine how you could fit 50 lbs of stuff in here unless you literally put bricks in it.

I like it
This is my first lululemon purchase, which I was hesitate about getting. But, I eventually bought it. I really like the quality feel of the bag and the look. The only problem I have with the bag is that the clasp holding onto the center straps is so hard to clip! I realized after 30 minutes that I had to position the clasp in a certain way in order to get it to securely clip in. Otherwise, the clasp button just separates without much force. That is the most annoying part IMO.
design & style
clasp button is so difficult to push together (a part of it actually chipped off because of the attempts I made to get it to stay put).

Great Duffel bag for Traveling
I am a frquent business traveller and like to pack light. With a carry on luggage I can pack formal wear, but then have very little or no room left for workout/casual clothes and shoes. This duffel is the answer. I like the fact it has many pockets so it is easy to categorize things when packing, and more importantly - a PADDED laptop compartment that is very easy to get the laptop in and out at airport security check. The main zipper goes around the bag so it is easy to take stuff in and out of the duffel. The size is perfect and the black duffel looks formal enough (not simply like a gym bag).

Great bag for gym and school
As an athlete i purchased this bag for going to the gym and school. It has plenty of room for me to keep me cloths, training whose, laptop, notes...etc. This is pretty much the perfect bag that i had been looking for and it can hold up to 50lbs.
However for only having this bag for around a month with regular use, the small pockets in the inside of the bag is somehow starting to unattached(Coming off).
