Yoga was never really something that I thought I would get in to. I always thought it was, for lack of a better word, hocus pocus. It really is just fancy stretching, I never thought that it was going to help me. But, then I was lucky enough to receive a yoga mat to review and I absolutely fell in love with it. It's not that it helps so much with losing weight but it is very relaxing and can help with muscle aches.
The only problem I had was that I did not have a yoga mat bag! Yes, my yoga mat has a little carrier strap on it but it never worked all that well and usually just ended up slipping. So, I was excited to receive this bag. It would make it a lot easier to carry my yoga mat and I wouldn't have to worry about the strap slipping and dropping it in the middle of the sidewalk or something. When I got it, I was impressed as soon as I opened it! It's very nice and a lot sturdier than I thought it would be.
However, as you can see in one of my pictures, I have an oversized yoga mat so I was worried it simply wasn't going to fit in the bag. But, after some adjusting, I did get it to fit! I even had a little extra room to put my hot yoga towel inside and even with all my pulling and tugging, the bag didn't shown a single sign of letting loose. The zipper is a little hard to pull up and down when you have the bag really full but it didn't seem stressed. It's a nice quality zipper that I'm sure will last a while as long as you don't purposely try to destroy it.
The only issue I can see with this bag is that it doesn't really have any ventilation. For regular yoga, that's not such a big deal. But, if you're someone like me who tries to do hot yoga, it can end up with a very stinky bag. Even if that does happen, though, the bag is washable! Now, I would suggest being a little careful, use cold water and hang to dry so it doesn't shrink but it will be as good as new after that! I would definitely give this bag five stars! It's very sturdy, easy to clean and can even hold an oversized yoga mat! On top of that, it also has a very cute design that anyone would enjoy! It definitely gets my recommendation!
