Gym Bags

What do people use for gym bags? What's in it?
post #2 of 21
People use gym bags when going to the gym (see, that's how they got their name). It's used for transporting gym wear. Next week we'll talk about a newfangled device called a "wallet"!

I think he knows what a gym bag is. He was asking what people use for them. I personally use a Salvatore Ferragamo Italian Leather Gym Briefcase.

Seriously, I don't even bother with a gym bag. I go home to change first. The few times I did use a gym bag I just got whatever was large and under $30 at Ross. I like something with a large main compartment and two side compartments for putting shoes or dirty towels if you need to.

Ditto, except read "any discount merchant" for "Ross."

Because I do not have the luxury of going home, I use the bag for sneakers, gym gear, Gu packets, extra salt, band-aids, earphones (for cardio equipment), personal grooming stuff, lock, and a book.

I carry a nike gymsack. I put my water, workout notebook, mp3 player, gym gloves, face wipes, combination lock, wallet and deodrant in it.

And big gym bag if I'm taking a shower and going out or going back to work.
They got nike ones for cheap at Costco.

Don't use one. My gym has a laundry service so I can have my kit washed there. No need to carry stuff back and forth. I keep some stuff in the locker, like deo, talc, comb, etc. Five bucks a month and I never have to think about forgetting anything.

I use a one I got for free with broken zippers. When it starts to smell I'll throw it out and get another free one. Trying to be stylish and fashion conscious at the gym is an invitation for an ass kicking.

yup, agree. Go, sweat, leave. I have a canvas duffel bag that has followed for through four countries and still serves me well as a gym bag.

To each his own I guess...

If you have to carry you gym bag to and from work with you while wearing a suit and carrying a nice bridle leather briefcase you may not want it to be a sad looking beat to hell piece of shite. A humongous bright red or blue Nike bag just does not harmonize well with a business outfit.

My self I have some inconspicious black nylon duffel with no logos. I am looking to have it replaced with a smaller size Filson-type canvas and leather bag.

A guy's gym bag shouldn't be pretty. IT should be functional. However, you do want it to blend in with the rest of your quality clothing. So no Hermes leather tote bags and no tattered gym bags either. Something that's sleek, simple and gets the job done.

Right now I use my realy old school bag, but I'll be changing that in the coming months

I use a cheap bag that's big enough for sneakers, shorts, shirt, sweat towel, iPod and a few bottles of water.

I'm just looking for something functional, more so than just a duffel.

A chrome kremlin might do the trick for you. I haven't got one, but I'm planning on checking out some chrome bags as something more useful carrying stuff than my current messenger bag (it's sturdy, but not fully waterproof and I can't strap my umbrella to it.
