Gym Duffel Bags | How are you going to carry your stuff around

A gym or duffel bag is an important piece of equipment for every gym member. It can carry everything you need for a workout or even for a night away and depending what size you buy, you can get away for a weekend. For me, myself and I, I have owned 3 gym bags at once.

I know. You say to yourself. “Why does this buffoon need three gym bags?” My reply to that question would be, “Why not three? Do you have something against gym bags?” Then you would square up to me and sneer and say, “I don’t like your kind with or without a gymbag.” (Slap!…Okay, I’m back. I’m back.)  The reason I had three bags was because depending on what I was working out  on and what I planned to do after working out. I had a small, medium and large gym duffel bag.

On days when I just went to the gym I used my small bag. In it I carried my keys, wallet, weightgloves, straps, wraps, a Met-Rx 30g protein bar, my smartphone and my headphones, which I got from my other site (Shameless Plug Here) Check it out. Come on, I dare you…Muhahaha!!!

For my medium bag I would pack everything I put in my small bag plus a change of cloths and a towel. I enjoy spending time in the Jacuzzi and sauna and take a nice cool shower afterwards. It also made a great overnight bag when I went out and knew I would be in no condition to make it back home..Because…I was studying for…a test…That’s right, I was studying for a test…On the weekends?

Anyways, I would use my large bag for more bulky clothes for after the gym. Especially during the fall and winter months. I also used it when I was taking a weekend trip somewhere. Just pack it up and throw it in the car…And it makes it easier to carry 6 kgs. of high grade cocaine…Noooo. I’m just joking. I was never a drug mule…Or was I? Nope, nope I wasn’t…I swear!!!

The gym bags I used for years were a Adidas, a Puma and a Nike bag. I do like the look of Under Armour gym bags but I have to wait until one of my other bags is no longer serviceable..Totally destroyed. Kaput!

Now within these four what I call mainstream bags, there are dozens, if not hundreds of styles amd colors. They make them for men, women and they’re are also unisex bags. Most, if not all have zipper enclosures, pockets of varies sizes, straps and have water proof or water-resistant polyester shells.

I’ll tell you one thing. The prices have stayed reasonable for all sorts of gym duffel bags. So enjoy perusing the bags I have showcased. There are plenty of gym bags to shop for.

    Moreover, I’ve been using it for months now and no sign of it going bad any moment from now. I love it!

  5. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with owning 3 gym bags. I mean, you can never have enough, right? I used to have two some years ago and also used them for when I was going back home on the weekends from college. They can be used for whatever thing you want, it doesn’t necessary have to be uniquely for the gym and that’s really convenient for a lot of us who work out and also are constantly on the go.

  6. Have you tried all of these bags before? If so, which one is your favorite? Do you have any negatives about these bags? I like all of them and they seem within my price range, but I don’t want to get one with some flaws I don’t even realize are there. Thanks for all the help, and sorry for all the questions!

    1. I’ve used a Puma an Everlast and a Nike bag. They were all different sizes so it depended what I was doing after my workout. My bags are old so they are built well. These are brand new. But, I really like the design and the look of the UnderArmour bag if truth be told and when one of my bags dies I will buy one.

  7. I found your article to be very informative and useful. I work out when I can but have never given a thought about taking a duffel bag with me because I was only going to be there a short time. I then had to start to find creative ways to store my keys, wallet and other goodies. I took notes on the ones that you had on your site to give me a starting point for my search of which one would be best for me. 

    Your site was laid out very well. I had no problem with navigation and all of the links I tried worked well. I truly enjoyed the site and the information you provided.
