The 10 Best gym bags
You've got the trendy trainers and the high-performance kit, now its time to get to and from the work-out in style
Wednesday 10 April 2013
This reliable rucksack has practical pockets, durable fabric, plenty of storage space and design-conscious detail. And because it enables you to just bung your fitness gear on your back, it’s particularly good for commuters.
Like to appear fashionable even when sweating it out down the gym? Get there in style with this heritage bag from Nike, which has main and side zipped compartments, strong shoulder strap and large logo.
Made from a durable laminate nylon and beefed up with extra bar tacks and double stitching, this bag is as resilient as they come, as well as being available in seven colour options. It has super-comfortable shoulder straps, as well as twin haul handles, and a transparent slot for your sports membership card on the top.
This is a stunner of a sports bag and well worth the extra dosh if you’ve got it. Spacious and sleek, the timeless barrel bag features both a main and side pocket, plus two leather carry handles and detachable seatbelt webbing shoulder strap.
This kit bag can be instantly personalised with up to three initials and/or a designed patch. It’s generous in size and is made from fully lined, leather-look fabric. Both the grab handles and adjustable shoulder strap are robust.
The brand new Newton bag from Fila is made from textured faux leather and boasts a D-shape opening for easy access. There’s a built-in shoe compartment at one end and an opening at the other end for smaller bits, and it’s available in red, white or blue.
This anti-smell sports bag has been designed specifically to stop nasty whiffs from sports kits. It works in pretty much the same way that those clever insoles do for shoes, utilising an active carbon filter to help neutralise smells. It’s also available in red, yellow and black.
With an expandable section that allows it to double in size, the Ready-to-Dance nylon bag by Stella McCartney is adaptable, even when you’re on the go. It’s got two inner slip-in pockets – ideal for deodorant, shower gel or make-up - and it’s also incredibly stylish. Available in black or white.
This is a bargain for a bag of such quality and style. There’s enough space for your fitness essentials, including zipped inner pockets, and it doubles up as ideal luggage for an overnight or weekend stay too.
Sometimes even the larger sports bags on the market don’t come close in terms of space required. So this huge three-stripes essentials team bag with wheels, separate wet/dry compartments and shoe compartment, is a great find.
