These Gym Bags Are As Stylish As You Are

We count on our gym bags to do a lot for us. We'd like them to be lightweight, but we also expect them to hold all of our gear. We love it when they're water-resistant and weather-proof, but it's probably important that they look nice, too. Once we determine which features are our priority, then comes the matter of wading through the countless options on the market.

Any gym-goers who understand these woes can rest easy now. We've gone ahead and done the hard work for you. (Shopping-wise, that is; you'll still have to do the workout yourself.)

Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite gym bags that are available right now, from totally functional, mesh drawstring sacks to leather-look duffels. No matter your style or your preferred workout, there's something here for you. You may even look forward to your run more if you can toss your leggings into one of these beauties afterwards.
