Until recently, I looked like a crazy bag lady at work. I’d carry one or two reusable tote bags of gear in addition to my work bag, barely squeezing onto crowded buses and the office elevator. I never saw myself as a “gym bag” person, but have realized how simply practical they are. While I have an old REI gym bag that is excellent for car camping and weekend trips, it is far too large to commute with on a daily basis. My fiance (now husband!) offered to let me borrow his simple Adidas bag – but it was too large as well. So, I began my hunt for a small, functional gym bag at a reasonable price.
