This bag is just the size I was looking for to carry to the gym. I use a full sized gym bag to carry my clothes to work and change before I leave. I use this bag to carry my towel, ear buds, sweat beanie, lifting gloves, etc into the gym without having to carry my full bag. I like the thickness of the straps, they are just the right diameter to make them durable without them being too large for the bag.
Love, Love, Love this bag! I bought 2; one for myself and one for my husband and we have been sporting this for over a month before commenting. I used to carry a purse that would take a lot of effort to carry and now with this backpack I can fit all of my "just in case I need it" items as well as my needed items. Plus, it's made of very good material and the construction is solid. It's also very easy to clean as the material pretty much repels light liquids. Highly recommend.
