I have a gymtote bag (it was a birthday present) which I use during the week - looks like a normal capacious handbag but the bottom half of it is a gym bag in which I can chuck trainers, water bottle, gym kit and a small towel if needed. Is v handy as means I can head to gym from meetings and vice versa.
A capacious 99p TK Maxx bag for life - can keep all my gym kit in there (perfect when you can't predict the temperature of the studio or is it just my gym that veers unpredictably between arctic and sub tropical?).
Got a brilliant microfibre towel fom Aldi this week too .
Don't laugh, but I have just bought one out of the Avon book. Quite well made, various pockets, including a zip-off one, and a section for gym shoes which is separate. Fits nicely in my locker, and looks pretty good not like it came from Avon
I like that one too. It goes well with my laptop bag.
You see the thing is right now I have 3 bags. My handbag (large birkin kind of thing) my laptop bag which is not one of those massive ones, but still another bag to carry, and then - now with the gym - another bag for gym stuff. Immediately the gymtote appeals as I could go down to just one bag - and I may be able to put my little macbook pro in there too but it is alot of £££ when - let's face it - the gym may last as long as some of my other 'intentions'
mine was Â£6 quid from sports direct a purple Lonsdale one, it fits in the locker, my clothes fit in it and it has a bag for my trainers inside. What an earth does a Â£150 quid gym bag do that another one won't lol
Kato I do like the wet bag idea and using a large tote - good thinking! . But yes, there may be scope to get a sleeve for the macbook and put that in a gym bag (one that has a closed off bit for wet stuff)
I used to have a lovely Adidas Stella McCartney bag, but it was just too big (& only had a shoulder strap, no grab handles). I've switched to a (black) kipling erasto: http://m.kipling.com/uk-en/erasto-n-k1239058m00-999.html which is ideal for me. I have a wet bag inside for wet/sweaty stuff and if I didn't have a stupidly bulky towel (hate the feel of microfibre) I'd have room for a laptop, etc.
