Drishti Yoga Tote
Good bag I used often, needs water bottle holder
I use this bag frequently and it is a good way to carry my mat to class rather than using a strap, especially when you are on a bicycle.
It's reasonably roomy to fit most things in although sometimes I find it a challenge when I do a hot yoga class. It is hard to fit a cylindrical water bottle in it as well as my clothes, toiletries and shower sandals. Clothes are easy to confirm to any shape but water bottle cylinders are not.
What would earn it the 5th star is...
- pocket outside for water bottle/umbrella (gives more carrying capacity)
- put the mesh pocket INSIDE the bag to protect contents from rain
- make the overall bag a bit bigger for clothes, airplane-size toiletries
- add a daisy chain on the outside to strap on anything extra, or to make the bag strappable to another bag... so I can add a mat holder to my other backpack by strapping the Drishti bag onto it.
Still, I like the bag and happy with it. It was great to use when I was riding my bicycle to the studio (wearing it cross-body). It's still comfortable to wear on one shoulder + backpack for work gear. (I don't have a Cruiser backpack and it rains out here.)

I love love love this bag! I love that there is enough space to fit any size of mat. After hot yoga I like to roll my matt up with my towel still on it, which causes my mat to be slightly thicker and this bag holds it perfectly with still lots of room to spare. I like the little corner air holes that allows the sweaty mat to breathe and the front zipper pocket is perfect for the other loose odds and ends you need to bring to class. The zippers are so smooth and very durable and the adjustable straps are sooo nice!
I love the bag!!!

I Love It!
I have a crazy thick pilates mat and IT FITS!!!! I had the loop it up strap which was fine but this strap does nothing to keep my mat clean. I have 5 dogs and a very active lifestyle and keep my mat in the car so I appreciate having it zipped up in this cool bag ready to go when I need it. Thanks Lululemon!

Perfect yoga mat bag!
Amazing! I bought this to carry my LLL The Mat and I am very happy with it. Now I don't have to carry my mat in a sling/mat strap plus a gym bag to carry my change of clothes, towel, hairbrush and hydro flask cos I can fit everything in this bag. This bag is just enough size for all my basic stuff to carry around, don't expect to fit your shoes, hairdryer etc in here.

Must have for yogis on the go!
This is a tote of great quality! It is great for air travel - I used to have trouble lugging my mat around the airport. I use it to take my mat everywhere and holds up well as checked baggage.

I have quite a number of mat bags and I always like "larger" mat bags because I always bring tonnes of stuffs to yoga class... like my yoga paws, towels, bottles, keys, money, just to name a few.
Drishti Mat Bag provides sufficient room for all my items but I don't really like its material, as in, it has this "collapsible" feeling and not very sturdy for its weight.
The one extremely good point is the strap that can double as a yoga strap, just for that little bonus, this bag is extremely worthy to get. It fits my lululemon mat very well (of course) but I do need to roll it up very snugly if I want to fit in my yoga towel without looking like a pregnant bag.
The colours I got was a pink/red one (which I don't see on this site) and the colour is absolutely vibrant and aesthetically I felt amazing carrying the bag around.

Perfect weather-proof tote
Recently purchased this tote on a rainy day when my lulu mat was getting soaked before yoga. It was an impulse purchase, but worth every penny. My mat fits wonderfully into this tote and stayed dry! The tote has nice clean lines and the strap is extremely comfortable to wear across my chest (I wear the tote like a quiver diagonally across my back). Only downside is that I likely won't be getting much use out of the mesh pocket on the outside - rain and snow will deter me from putting dry clothes where they can be soaked. Solution? Keep them on the inside because there is loads of space!
Thanks lululemon, this bag rocks.

Best Yoga Bag Award!
And the winner is...the Drishti Yoga Tote! I just bought this bag in the petal camo fuel green color at the Little Rock store & hope it will last forever. It looks sturdy - has so many functional details that the fabric + features, & other reviewers have already pointed out. The petal camo fuel green pattern looks so elegant & has much more depth in person. And it's just the right weight, even with my mat & essentials in the bag. Fantastic job, Lulu design team!
(And a many thanks to the LR staff who always take their time to really educate & show me LLL products. They're also always ready to listen to my feedback!)

the only bag you need for a yoga class
I bought this bag in "tides up opal/deep coral" online back in June. When I received the package (very quickly I might add!) I immediately fell in love with the colours. They were much more vibrant than I saw from the pictures online.
This bag has proved to be the only one I really need to take with me to yoga class. In the bag I can fit my Mat, yoga towels, water bottle, phone, keys, etc. I love that I can just pack all I need for class in that bag, throw it in my car and know I have everything for a yoga class.

Cute and functional
I adore this bag. It's extremely easy to slip your yoga mat in and out, as well as store a few extra shorts or clothing in the mesh pocket. The price and fabric is great as well, and I love the little side zipper to store headphones, my gym card, and phone. I love slinging this baby over my shoulder every time I work out!
