It’s in the Bag

It’s Abbie, and I’m back with gym bags. We need them. We need them to carry our mats and sweaty clothes.

Because who are we if we don’t have pretty bags? I have a couple different options.

Patagonia is where it’s at for product options that are made ethically. They monitor all of the factories, and do their best to conserve water and material in the production process. I like this Lightweight Yoga Sling, which also comes in purple and black ($49; Duc Hoa, Vietnam). Warning, though–reviews seem to indicate that the bag does not fit a 26 inch mat.

This bag is from Lo & Sons, one of my favorite bag companies. I contacted them, and they confirmed that they monitor the production on all of their products and pay their workers a fair wage. This O.M.G. bag (which stands for Overnight Medium Gym bag) is a great size for, shocking I know, a gym bag ($275). Check out their other products, too. Also, take a look at Everlane’s weekender bag ($95; Dongguan, China). It’s a great size for packing things to the gym.

I really like this Manduka sling ($32) that is minimalist but also has a zippered pocket for storing things (like treats). Manduka is committed to sustainable manufacturing, both in the materials used and by utilizing fair labor practices. The company has many great options for transporting yoga mats.

Enjoy!
