Do It Up Duffel
The BEST Bag!
I have a number of lulu bags, all of which I love, but none compare to this one! The pockets are perfect, and the colour great! I got it as a gift for my birthday, and wanted to give it to someone else because I liked it so much, but can't seem to order the colourful one from the Canadian site! Help??

I purchased this bag before going on a trip to Montreal. Initially i was disappointed as a more sturdy bag i was eyeing up sold out quickly. I frequently dance, go to the gym, play ultimate, do yoga and this bag has exceeded my expectations in every way. It's comfortable to wear, has pockets for everything (except a water bottle), and really develops a shape when you load your gear into it. I would recommend this bag to anyone who's on the go all the time.

I love everything about this bag BUT the seams started coming apart after only 2 weeks of use (and I'm not carrying anything heavy or over-filling it). I brought it in and exchanged it for a new one. After a month, the seams in the new bag started falling apart! I'm very disappointed with the quality of the bags although the size, weight and look of the bag are awesome! Wish it was more well-made.

I am a Spin and Body Pump insctuctor and have everything from A-Z in this bag!! I LOVEEEEE IT!!! I love all the cutie pockets with captions on them-- I rarely lose anything now!
I too have the mint/sping color and it is absolutely adorable.
I do not have any complaints about the bag whatsoever.
I don't use the laptop pocket, however another reviewer stated she put her shoes in it-- great idea!

My fav lulu product to date
I don't know how anyone could rate this bag less than 5 stars. It is an excellent product and has a space for everything. I bought this to replace my flow and go tote, which doesn't have enough space for all of my things. This bag can store 5 days worth of gym clothes, shoes, toiletries and several towels. I have my gym shoes in the laptop compartment, underneath the bag. The bag has pockets for everything on the inside and 3 pockets on the outside to organize even more. This bag is perfect for someone who wants to pack a weeks worth of gym clothes and shoes, toiletries, towels, etc. it's lightweight, yet durable and tough. I see no issues with quality whatsoever and I am one hard to please person. I have the gorgeous mint/spring bag and it was worth every penny. Lots of thought went in to making this bag the perfect gym bag ! Great job lulu! THANK YOU!!!!

I love this bag! I will admit, the price was a bit steep but my boyfriend bought it for me as a surprise :)
This bag is super roomy, definitely more than enough room for everything you need to bring to the gym. I could fit my entire week's worth of workout gear in there if I wanted. I love all the pockets and the labelling in each pocket is a cute and humorous touch.
I don't mind the laptop pocket; under certain circumstances I would put my laptop in there but it would be in another protective case as well but I would definitely use this pocket with caution. I haven't experienced any of the quality issues that other people have; to me, the bag looks well manufactured and sturdy. I have the spring has sprung/mint combo and I absolutely love the colours! Overall, I am definitely in love with this bag and would recommend both as a gym bag and a travel bag.

This bag is super-cute, light and just the right size for carrying my yoga stuff around - also a great carry-on size for travel. Has the perfect number of pockets, located in the perfect spots no matter how you carry the bag. It's not shown in the pictures, but you can easily fit a rolled-up mat in the bag if you leave a gap in the zipper for the mat to poke out (where it zips around the end of the bag). Or, if you have an Un Mat or other foldable mat, a folded mat fits perfectly in the laptop slot. Also, not sure why so many complaints about the location of the laptop slot - if you carry the bag vertically/zipper-side out over your shoulder, the laptop slot lays right against your back rather than on the bottom of the bag, which makes perfect sense to me. The bag expands to fit a lot of stuff if needed, but folds up easily and is light as a feather when empty. I got the light flare/inkwell combo, which I love and makes me feel very safe on the street due to the bright colors!

Perfect lightweight bag for the gym
I bought this to replace my 5 year old Lululemon bowler bag that I was using for the gym but was far too small. The mint moment/Spring has sprung combo was odd but it really caught my eye so that is what I purchased.
The bag doesn't have much structure but that is why it is so lightweight and roomy. When it's full the bottom does sag a bit but it's no deal breaker. I love all the pockets outside and inside for organizing my stuff...I especially love the inside mesh zipped pocket, which I use to store all of my hair ties, hair pins and head bands. The removable pouch is great as it can be used as either a dirty laundry bag or a shoe bag; I use it for my runners since I have the laundry bag from my old bowler bag.
I think the laptop compartment is oddly placed on the bottom, but that doesn't bother me since I would never need to bring my laptop to the gym. The zipper pull for the laptop compartment was dangling at the bottom and bothering me so I tucked it in and now it has been completely forgotten.
I've never converted it to wear as a "backpack" but it's always good to have the option. The top handles are a bit short but it works just fine for me.
Lastly, I love that this bag doesn't scream lululemon. There aren't any obvious logos anywhere, and the only people who know it's lululemon are those who have seen the bag or the patterns they used for this bag. This may be a problem for some people (based on the reviews of other bags that also don't bear any large logos) but definitely not for me.
Overall, great buy! I see only the black/black combo is left, it is really nice too! Hopefully lululemon will keep this style and keep making it in upcoming color combinations.

Could be a useful bag
I bought this bag from the Evanston store on the last day of my vacation to Chicago. I liked the bag because it is spacious and light for carrying my kit to the gym. Unfortunately when I arrived home in the UK I discovered that the security tag has not been taken off so I am unable to use the bag. I am awaiting a response from the store as I am unable to return to get the tag removed.

Not Just A Gym Bag
Bought this bag for to and from yoga, gym and school.
The pocket at the bottom of the bag for the laptop is actually quite useful if you change the way you carry the bag. Its all about manuvering people!
When I started travelling from Canada to the States multiple times a month again this bag came in handy yet again as an amazing carry-on. It can fit a weeks worth of clothes, two pairs of 5-6" heels, a pair of riding boots, 6 t-shirts, 3 dresses, 2 skirts, 2 pairs of jeans, a pair of runners, and various other items (laptop, ipad, camera, chargers, toilettries, snacks) all in an over-head bin or under the seat of any airline (US or Canadian)
It's easy to carry, and doesn't dig into your shoulder if you wear it properly.
It's definitely waterproof, the snowy weather of Winnipeg can testify to it.
Definitely one of my favorite purchases thus far.
