If you are likely to stash gym clothes and other workout equipment in a random fashion and stuff it in the back of your car, it’s time to change that. With gyms and workout studios fully functional after two years of the pandemic, the need for a spacious, high-quality sports bag with optimal functionality will help you get back into the routine with more ease. Plenty of space is an absolute necessity to fit in all kinds of sports apparel and for those who head to the gym straight after work, perhaps everyday essentials and valuables, too.

A good gym bag should also feature side pockets for bottles and a variety of separated pockets for smaller items to be kept in an organised fashion. Additionally, the bag should be durable and water-resistant, with straps that provide a high level of comfort. Your post-workout muscle ache deserves that. Most regular, day-to-day bags do not come close to providing the appropriate level of room or compartmentalisation for this. From a gym duffle bag to backpacks, find your perfect fit from this list.

Coach

An elevated take on a classic gym bag, Coach’s Duffle bag is a sporty choice that comes with a roomy design. It features inside zipping and multifunctional pockets to keep small gear, cards, and a phone within reach, alongside an outside pocket detailed with the brand’s iconic turn-lock closure. If you wish to make a statement, this one’s for you.

Emporio Armani

Made of nylon, this bag from Emporio Armani is a practical-yet-functional item that comes with multi-pocket styles, giving it an urban feel. The thick print is inspired by the address of the iconic store at 31 via Manzoni in Milan, making it extra special for those who are obsessed with logos. An easy-to-carry bag with double handles, detachable shoulder straps and die-cast zips, makes it for an ideal option to replace your current gym bag with.

Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s classic Keepall series comes in various signature prints. This Keepall 50 Bandoulière is made from glitter leather, which is a part of the Glitter capsule collection, Virgil Abloh’s homage to the nightlife of the 1990s. If you are someone who adores everything metallic, you need to get your hands on this piece.

Michael Kors

Featuring its signature print, Michael Kors’ Hudson weekender bag is designed in a structured silhouette with notably spacious interiors. Equipped with top handles as well as a detachable crossbody strap, the bag has a structure that makes it easy to carry. It’s perfect for storing all your workout essentials, and especially in cases where you hit the gym right after work. Plus, it’s great for a weekend getaways.

Bottega Veneta

For those who want a classic leather duffle, this piece from Bottega Veneta is a great choice.
