Perfect fit for my extra thick Pur Earth mat, even when it isn't rolled tightly. Nice design, pretty, sturdy and a great side pocket for a yoga strap and other incidentals. It might be a tight fit to squeeze in yoga blocks with the extra thick mat, but if I rolled it better, it would probably fit a block or two. Blocks would fit fine with a regular/thin mat.
The magnetic snaps on the top are nice, although if you're looking for a tight, secure seal along the length of the bag, the edges slightly gape. Not a problem for my purposes (just want to keep it dry in a rain or snow shower!).
You know a product exceeds your expectations when you squeal like a little girl when you open the box, and feel compelled to do yoga just to take the mat out of the bag, and put it back in the bag; walk around the room with the bag; show your husband the bag...you get the picture.
I have been going to yoga weekly for over a year and I just had a mat strap. first one was really thin and broke, then I got a lululemon mat strap that was Velcro and hated it, so I had to find something that worked for me, as I needed to pack my towel (for hot yoga) and my water as well, so my hands were always really full. This bag is amazing ! I can put my mat, towel, and water bottle no problem o ! its the best bag ever !!11 and It doesn't cost a million dollars ! and the straps are perfect to sling over my shoulder ! LOVE LOVE LOVE it ! BEST YOGA TOTE BAG EVER ! and its very natural looking , and pretty. extra awesome!
I have tried so many yoga bags, straps, slings... None compare to this yoga bag. I can fit my mat, towel, water bottle and still have room for clothes and some accessories without the bag becoming cumbersome. I don't have to roll my mat super right and struggle to squeeze it into a narrow opening. The straps are the perfect length and I love the tree design. Pockets are excellent for keys, locks, wallet.
The only draw back is that the inner lining is loud and crinkly, giving the appearance that it's cheap, which is in complete contrast to the embroidered canvas outside of the bag, but that is really so minor. Awesome bag. Namaste.
Just received the bag in perfect condition. Nice thick, long straps to carry on shoulder, can rest arms on. Very detailed embroidery on zipper side which is large enough to fit bottle water, etc. Lined insided with waterproof fabric, also has large zipper pocket. My Yoga Mat is very thick because of knee problems and I was able to put it in the bag with no fuss. Perfect for anyone who has a thick yoga mat like myself. Can't wait to bring it to my next class! Thanks Amazon for selling this great item :)
I really like the size of the bag and it can hold my mat, towels and water bottle. I also like the zippered front. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the magnets don't stay closed and would prefer a zipper.
