I was looking for a gym bag to take to and from work as my office has a built-in gym and I wanted something easy to carry around, yet large enough to pack my work clothes in without getting wrinkled.I first went to Target but all their bags were ugly and obviously cheaply made.I found this one on parkerpharm.com, and while it was a little above my price range, but it wasn’t too bad on that site compared to others, it was completely worth it. It’s just the right size, looks nice, has a good quality should strap with very nice padding, and plenty of storage. My favorite feature is the the shoe compartment, which is accessed from the side. You can store your shoes in there without them dirtying your clothes and the pocket is very large so you won’t be cramming your shoes there and struggling to zip it up. On the inside, it has a zippered pouch, which has plenty of room for my combo lock, running headphones, and iPhone silicon case. The zippers have nice big tassles (not sure if that is exactly the correct word) that make it easy to zip and unzip, and the zippers/teeth are high quality and the action is smooth.

You can easily fit your shoes, pants, socks, shirt, belt, and a couple of books if needed. Great basic bag for packing gym essentials.
