I just want to start this off by saying this is a review of the Apera Yoga Tote. I did get it for free, but I was going to buy it either way. So while I was compensated, my thoughts, opinions, mushy feelings and lust toward an inanimate object are 100% my own. And real. And a little embarrassing.
Now that that is out of the way.
After Ash reviewed an Apera bag on her blog a few weeks back, I fell in long distance love. I am an organizational freak, and my gym bag was leaving a LOT to be desired. It was huge, but it only had one big ass pocket, and lets be honest, digging around for your undies that seem to be lost in the abyss of your gym bag while NAKED in front of strangers who are way fitter than you are is NOT my idea of a great time.
I alleviate this by working out at home most of the time, but there are times where I venture out.
So anyhoo, after Ash’s review I was looking at their bags and I fell in love with the yoga tote. Most of the time when I leave the house to workout it is to go to yoga. And for some reason, the yoga strap I bought to carry my yoga mat is too big. So I have to carry it by hand and it gets unrolled and blah blah drama.
When I saw the yoga tote, I said “Wha??? A bag that will actually HOLD my yoga mat?? Take my money!” and I was about to buy it. Then I remembered that Ash asked if she could do the review so I thought I would to. And when they said yes, I was ECSTATIC because I wouldn’t have to have weird gym bag fantasies anymore- I could be weird with it in person.
The day it arrived on my door step (well apartment office, but whatever) was like Christmas! I couldn’t wait to
cuddle with it fill it up and take it to yoga! It just so happened the 9 News Yoga Open fair was that weekend so I had the perfect opportunity to test it out!
I loved how the bag didn’t feel bulky. Even packed (I put stuff in it even tho I didn’t need to change, I wanted to feel it full) it felt slim and light. And I LOVED the way it carried my mat!
On the inside, there is a divider for your shoes to be separate!
And there is a bag for wet clothes!
