5 Most Instagrammable Gym Bags
Because sometimes your supermarket bag for life just won't cut it.
Most of us are no stranger to snapping gym selfies in the name of #fitspo, yet when it comes to a place to store all our gym wear we end up using the nearest carrier bag. But who’s to say gym bags can’t make a fashion statement all by themselves? If you’re looking for a gym bag that’ll do just as well for the office or double up as a fashion accessory, here’s our pick of on-trend bags that won’t look out of place on your Insta feed.
Want to take the ultimate Instagram pic? Queer Eye's Tan has you covered:
1. Charli Backpack
This leather Charli Backpack is super spacious and super stylish; containing a separate ‘anti-smell technology’ compartment for your trainers, a spill-proof water bottle holder, multiple zip compartments and plenty of space for a laptop to boot. It's ideal if you’re gymming it straight from work - Mary Poppins would be proud.
2. Domyos Fold-Down Fitness Bag
Spent all your money on protein shakes? This bright and colourful Decathlon number will brighten up your day (and feed) without lightening your wallet. It’s designed for those wanting to carry cardio equipment so there’s tons of room, and once you’ve finished using it you can roll it into a lightweight pouch to pop into your regular handbag. Genius.
3. Cushty Bag
Monochrome lovers can still get their fashion fix with BoudaVida’s gym bag. With compartments for your wet kit, trainers and a dedicated space to slot your yoga mat, this bag ticks a lot of boxes (and let's take a second to appreciate the rose gold zip detail too!). For each bag sold, BoudaVida donates 5% to support projects that help women in sport, so you can get your sweat on whilst helping others do the same!
4. Navy and Cream Barrel Bag
There’s no reason why male gym bags can’t compete in the fashion stakes. British brand Jim Bag offer a range of duffels, barrel bags and rucksacks in every colour under the sun. This British-made navy and cream canvas barrel bag doubles up as a stylish travel bag. And if you’re one of those couples who just love to match, you’ll be pleased to know that Jim Bag’s women’s range is just as on point.
Jim Bag, £39.99
5. Squat it Like It's Hot Gym Tote
Are you even on Instagram if you don’t love a cheeky slogan purchase? Hey Holla specialise in slogan gym wear and, while we pretty much want EVERYTHING from their site, we’d settle for this neon pink, Fairtrade sustainable tote. At only £20, you can treat yourself and upgrade to the gift box version (£34.99) which comes with a bright pink gym towel and hair ties.
Hey Holla, £20
