nice bag for the price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Gaiam Embroidered Bag-Koi Fish Print (Sports)
I'm really happy with this bag. Its good quality for the price, I have a bag almost just like it that cost twice as much on one of the more prestigous yoga sites. The embroidery on the shoulder strap matches even (which you also can't see in the pictures). I like the fabric because it feels durable like canvas but soft like a well worn pair of jeans. The color is nice and warm and I love the fish embroidery. The only complaint I would have is the bag should have been an inch or two deeper, which is where I took a star off for. I bought the hugger mugger natures collection standard size mat(sunset of course, which matches quite nicely) to go with it and even with the mat perfectly rolled the drawstring does not close the bag all the way. Which isn't a problem, unless its raining when your headed to class then you've got a mini funnel going on with your mat. Also there is some wiggle room for your mat while inside this bag, but not enough for props other than straps or a very thin rug or towel. I think the thicker sized mats would be a very tight fit as well.
The pocket also, decent sized to fit a few things like an ipod, change purse, or very thin wallet; but I wouldn't expect to cram too much in there. Basically if your looking for something to simply carry your standard sized mat in this would fit the bill, if you need more room you may want to pass.
