5 Gym Bags For People Who Love Pockets

Let’s get technical, practical and down to business. We’ve got a thousand things on our agendas and we need a gym bag that can keep up with our lifestyles. Just like life, packing a gym bag can get hectic, so we’ve found some of the most convenient and easily organizable bags for even the most disorganized lady.

We’re talking compartments galore! Laptop sleeve? We got you. Yoga mat straps? Obviously a must. Secret compartments that hide your sweaty unmentionables? Of course we found the bags that have that. These gym bags will change the way you plan your day and give you more freedom to run from every appointment, event and sweat that you have on your agenda without the stress of wondering if you had another pair of shoes to change into, or if you would know that your laptop is safe and stored away.

If you don’t just love pockets – but you need them, here’s what to buy:

Lululemon’s Go-Getter Bag

Notorious for their love of secret compartments, pockets and fun features, lululemon has once again created one of the most functional gym bags that will get even the most disorganized gal knowing where she put her phone (of course, there is a compartment for that!)

Whether you’re a sweaty spinner who needs the separate compartment for your post-sweat workout gear or a yogi running from the office who not only needs a safe space for your tablet but straps the tuck away that will hold your mat, this bag is always an amazing choice. There is so much space for a change of clothes and even a heat-safe compartment for your straighter or curling iron that you can through it right after getting ready for drinks with your girlfriends once you’re all cleaned up from your sweat-sesh!
