I bought this bag so I could go to yoga class, and also bring my gym shoes, extra yoga accessories and still have room for my car keys, phone, etc. I like the bag, but I do have troubles fitting through doors and am a nuisance to other people around me, as I am always hitting them with my yoga mat! I am using the Manduka Surf Pro yoga mat, and as it is a larger yoga mat, I'm not 100% surprised at this. The one other negative thing about this bag, is that with using a larger and heavier yoga mat, it does block off the bottom portion of the bag (on the inside) so you can't really use the bag to maximum capacity. If you are using a lighter and smaller yoga mat, this bag would be perfect. I, however, am not. The quality and construction is 5 stars, the functionality of the bag is more like 2.5 stars.
I saw this bag in red at my yoga studio and had to have it; that was sometime last December. I love the idea of being able to go hands free. The bag is very functional, it holds everything I need for my practice. including change of clothes. You have total access to everything within the bag; simply back the things you need at the top. Once the bag is packed and the yoga mat is in place, it is impossible to retrieve items at the bottom of the bag without unstrapping the yoga mat.
Yes, you have to remember to turn sideways when you are going through the door but that is of little consequence when compared to the ease of travel. Several yogis have this backpack and we all practice backpack etiquette; at first we may be clumsy but then we know that if we are in a crowded space, we may need to remove our backpacks and carry it by the strap.
I use this backpack for personal use as well (without the mat); it works well when I have to go to the library; it adequately carries my laptop. Well done Manduka. five stars
I love this backpack! I got in pewter/yellow and I love how bright it is inside! There were a couple of loose threads on it when received, but nothing to be too concerned about.
My only complaint - which I kind of can't believe it's not there - is that there isn't a side pocket to hold a water bottle! The waist straps just dangle and hit the back of your legs if you don't use them/adjust them, too.
But the backpack is durable and has a lot of nice compartments. Love it!
