While dragging your gym clothes around in a plain-ole plastic sack is just fine—after all, the point is simply getting to the gym!—sometimes it’s fun to have a new bag to tote around all your vital workout gear, especially one that doesn’t scream GYM BAG when you’re carrying it or having it do double duty as a work-bag.
So, with the turn of a new season, here are two new options that don’t have a telltale Swoosh or other logo, nor are they too gargantuan. While a new sport bag isn’t a critical item of your workout arsenal, if you’re anything like me, having just the right gear (in a fun color or pattern) just might get you to hit the gym a bit more often!
1. The Cinda B. line of bags are soft, stylish, and versatile, and come in a wide range of feminine fabrics and shapes, but the Overnighter (below) happens to be the perfect size for carrying all you need for a trip to the gym. It’s also machine washable and water resistant—great for getting rid of sweaty smells or Gatorade spills. Plenty of pockets to keep everything organized and within easy reach.
2. The Lug Puddle Jumper Overnighter/Gym Bag (below) also has tons of great features that make it a super workout bag. Plastic-coated bottom with little metal feet with help it balance on a wet locker room bench; a special, ventilated, zippered compartment keeps sneakers separate from clothes; a detachable mirror for putting on your makeup; the entire bag is water repellent. Hey, there’s even a little slot for an ID card—just stash your gym ID right there and no more fumbling through your wallet to grab it upon entry to the club! Comes in 8 cool colors.
