McCartney Zutan Gym Bag

Stella McCartney is well known for her line of luxury clothing and accessories, but her Adidas collaboration offers something much more practical and affordable. Since 2009, she’s released affordable and stylish active wear for the brand including the Zutan gym bag (which was even spotted in the arms of Cameron Diaz). Its neutral tones, top snap closure, and shiny adjustable straps make it a standout among more traditional gym bags. It also has four interior zip compartments and easy-to-clean material (nylon and polyester), and will definitely rack up the compliments as you make your way to the gym!

2. Lug Life Jumper Gym Bag

The Lug Puddle Jumper gym bag is one of the most practical bags around, thanks to its slew of useful features that include a cosmetic holder, removable mirror, water bottle holder, ID window, wipe-able bottom, and water repellent material. It’s large enough to hold all of your gym essentials with ease, and can also act as a weekend bag.  It was also specifically designed to fit upright in a gym locker for easy in and out access.
