This bag STINKS. Literally.
on January 8, 2013
I purchased this bag for my wife for Christmas because she wanted a basic gym bag to put her stinky clothes in after a work-out. Well, I would probably not even put my stinky clothes in it because it would quite possibly make my clothes stink even worse than my sweat!
I put (hid) this behind my clothes hanging in the closet for a couple of weeks before Christmas and a few times I decided to wear a shirt from around that area in the closet. As soon as I put the shirt on, I noticed a foul oder. I thought my shirt had gone sour, so I washed it and grabbed a different one from that area. Same thing. I noted that the smell was only on the left side of the shirts... Right next to where the bag was sitting. I kind of shrugged it off and got it out to wrap a few days before Christmas. It was at that time (when I took it out of the bag it came in) that I really couldn't handle the smell. I'm a dude and quite used to foul oders, but this was bad. So, I contacted Amazon and returned it (hassle free) and purchased an Adidas bag instead. SO GLAD I DID. For the price, there are FAR better bags out there. Don't get me wrong.. the Ensign bag had a great array of pockets for various things, but the build quality was poor (and apparently by random, it smelled). Go with something else. Or you'll be washing all of your clothes.
