Drishti Yoga Tote
This bag is perfect for carrying a yoga bag, towel(s), water bottle, clothes, wallet, etc. It makes it so easy to be hands free. It was definitely worth the purchase.

I've had my Drishti tote for several months now and I absolutely love it! I originally had the camo version but after a couple days of people telling me that I looked like I was carrying around a rifle, I decided to get another color instead. Hahaha. I now have the opulent stripe version, which is no longer available because I like to wait a few months before writing what I think. That way- I can write a proper review. I am pleased to say that not only do I love my Drishti yoga mat tote but also I have not had any quality issues. I continue to get compliments all the time because it's so bright and colorful. I carry it as a crossbody on my back making my hands free. I can fit 2 mats, my studio shoes and extra clothes in the main compartment. I use the outside mesh zippered compartment to store my towel, accessories and much more. I was surprised as to how much I can fit in the tote! It unzips open really wide, making it easy to store or take your mat out. Another bonus is that you can take the carrying strap off to use as a stretching strap. Prior to this I was using my Loop It Up Strap or I would attach my mat to the handles of my Happy Hatha bag. This is so much more convenient! I hope Lululemon comes out with more colors because I think black bags are boring and since I have several mats, I would love to get another one. At $48, it's affordable considering how functional it is! Great job Lululemon!

Switched from yoga strap to this bag and I love it
I switched from a lululemon yoga strap to this bag about 6 months ago when the camo version of this bag came out. I'll be honest...I bought it mainly because it was camo, even though I didn't "need" it. But I'm so glad I did. Here are the reasons why:
- No more struggling to snap my yoga strap around my mat and roll it up to the perfect width.
- Plenty of extra space. I have "the mat" which I adore, and I can pack my yoga towel inside the big pocket with the mat. I've also put a bangbuster, yoga mat cleaner, and water bottle in the outer pocket. It fits soooo much!
- It protects my mat, which I leave in my car, from getting dust and car particles on it.
I'm really happy with this purchase!

Great Bag for Hands Free Commute
I bought this bag so that I could easily bike to my hot yoga class in nice weather. I use a relatively smaller yoga mat so there is plenty of additional space within the bag to store my yogitoes towel, hand towel and a change of clothes. Very practical bag for an affordable price.

WOW JUST what I needed
So I have a Namaste yoga tote 2 and let me tell you, the drishti bag was worth every penny. I was so sick of "fighting" my mat into that bag. This bag open all the way so you can calmly place it in the tote after a nice shavasana. Plus bonus points for other pockets to place my keys and towel. Now I can just roll with my bag, instead of my bag with all my other items in my hands. Good job LLL!

I originally chose this bag in camouflage. I switched to Secret Garden print. Of course I was freaked out that the print would be too "showy". Instead it's a fabulous print on a fabulous bag. Before today, I'd carry my mat with the Lulu strap with my keys, phone & water bottle all flopping around. This makes much more sense.

better than the namaste iii
1. Much easier to get your sweaty mat into the opening- zipper opens almost like a duffel bag.
2. Like the Namaste iii, I can fit my "The Mat" and my towel in my main compartment, but that was it. I like to bring a change of clothes to my class and I was unable to fit all of this in my Namaste bag. However, in this bag, I am able to fit my change of clothes in the mesh pocket.
3. I like the idea of my sweaty clothes and towel, being able to "air out" just a little before I bring them home.
In conclusion- on the fence about which bag? I'd go with this one :-)

Love this bag! Bought it in black. Very well made and hold my mat and more!!! I have a larger Prana mat and it's hard to find bags for the larger mats.

Functional, compact bag
I chose this bag because it was more compact than others I looked at. I don't carry much to the studio, so I didn't need all the extra space offered by the other bags - for me, it was just excess fabric. One time I did have to change at the studio and this bag did hold all my work clothes, though it was tight, but it was fine for every once in awhile. The bag is light and comfy to carry over the shoulder or cross-body. The small pocket on the side is great for my hair ties and card. The main compartment J-zipper makes it easy to put the mat in, though I find the short portion of the 'J' sometimes comes open.
My one big complaint is that it cannot easily store a water bottle. The side mesh pocket is slim. The bottle fits, but seems like it will eventually ruin the mesh. It can also fit inside the large mat pocket, but sticks out awkwardly and is not easy to access later. Could another side pocket be added, similar to the older-style bat?

Best mat bag
Love this bag. I have an old lulu manduka mat (basically same as the current "big mat"), and was so happy to find out this bag fit it. Pricey for just a mat bag, but worth it in the end for me.
