The performance of your bag depends on the material used to make it. If you’re looking for a durable, water-resistant product, then cotton probably won’t cut it.
If hot yoga is your thing, then aim for a bag that doesn’t absorb sweat and odor so that your inner peace has you smelling the roses and not smelling your bag instead.
The size of your mat is probably one of the most important factors to consider when shopping bags. Based on the length and width, you want to find a bag that leaves a little extra room so that you don’t have to worry about rolling the mat up super tight and having to shove it into the bag.
You should also take into account how much extra room you want to have so that you can include other yoga gear such as blocks, straps or towels.
Bags come in all shapes and sizes. From the sling to the tote, how you want to carry your bag is essential in deciding which you want to buy.
If you commute by foot, then you may want to opt for a sling bag with adjustable strap so that you don’t feel bogged down on your way to class.
Totes offer a lot of space and are often versatile so you can use for yoga, the gym or even as a carry on when traveling on a plane.
Last but not least, determine whether or not you want your bag to fasten at the top with a Velcro or zip closure. The last thing you want to do is buy a bag that’s open at the top especially if you’re big on keeping all of your things tucked away.
So, with those few things to keep in mind, it’s time for us to show you the yoga mat bags that we gave a ten out of ten…or should I say…a ZEN out of ten:
