    I got mine from Zara 6 years ago and get compliments on it frequently. Only cost me 60€.

    Zara is being investigated for child slave labor in South American countries.

    That's not a gym bag, however I also use my leather duffel at times. What features do you want?

    1. Leather for durability - buy once cry once
    2. Perforated so its breathable
    3. Lined or unlined? The lining should also be breathable
    4. Design- sporty or versatile (gym and weekender)?
    5. Shoulder strap required?
    6. Sets? I also got a dop kit that hangs in the gym shower so I can shave there
    7. Logos/Branding - is your gym safe? Someone will cut the lock for an monogrammed Gucci bag but not for the one you've posted.

    Well, I just need a bag that looks good with my work gear (business casual). I dont really need it to be breathable; I hit the gym after work, go straight home and stick my stuff in the wash. My sweaty gear would only need to be in there for 1 hour max. I would prefer a shoulder strap and the bag to have very minimal branding. No need for a set.

    These are the things I carry everyday:

    1. Shorts, T-shirt, trainers, 1 litre water bottle
    2. 2 slim tupperware (lunch and pre-workout)
    3. 13" laptop

    Currently I use this(below); it looks faded and worn now.
