Giveaway: Win a Sherpani Duffel Bag!

By , SparkPeople Blogger
*Contest Closed. The winner is: AMARYLLIS8. Congratulations!*

Going to the gym straight from work can be a hassle, but sometimes it's the only way you can squeeze some fitness into your busy day. Wouldn't it make things a little easier if you had a cute, functional bag for carrying your workout gear? We thought so, too-- so we are giving away a Sherpani Blaze Sport Duffel Bag!

One lucky winner will receive a duffel bag (in light blue or light green-- your choice!) that's perfect for on-the-go storage of gym essentials. Here are the details from the manufacturer, as well as our thoughts on the product:

What we thought*:

I at first thought the bag had too many handles, but I soon realized how useful each set was. I use this bag daily to tote my work clothes and lunch to work, then tote my yoga clothes and other odds and ends home with me. It easily fits my purse, cosmetic bag, a change of clothes and my breakfast and lunch, with room to spare.

In the morning, I slide my yoga towel in the elastic part on top along with my water bottle so I can easily remove them when I get to the yoga studio. I carry the bag by the shoulder strap or the two handles to keep my food from spilling.

At night and when I travel, I use the backpack straps, and they’re super cushy. I used this bag as a daypack and carry-on bag during a 10-day vacation, and I loved it. There is an inside elastic pocket where I stored a change of clothes, side pockets for things I needed quickly, and a double zipper for easy access. There are elastic side pockets inside, too.

The only thing I don’t love is the contrasting colors, but I do love purple, so I’m willing to overlook the style.

all the lockers at my gym are generally too narrow for most bags. I'd like one that was a little more vertical, so i could set it in the locker easily. Report
I really need a new gym bag. I have a very large bag right now, which is perfect, but I wish it had more than one strap because it gets very heavy to carry a mile to the gym slung over one shoulder. Mine only has 3 pockets but I wish it had more because I currently have to jumble up all my hair products with my shoes and/or clothes. I keep clothes and shoes in separate pockets and my jewelry and electronics in a separate pocket. I would like to have at least 5 pockets for different purposes. Report
The poll needed a choice of "all of the above" as that would have been my pick! My current gym bag has a pocket for dirty shoes and socks and a small mesh pocket for keys. It is just the right size for all of my gear and fairly well made. I do wish it were more versatile so I could use it for short hikes or overnight camping trips, which is why I chose the option of having detachable traps to use the bag as a backpack. Then I could use it to carry my dog's water bowl and and some water for us both on our hikes. I love gear that is multi-functional, then I don't have to buy too much! Report
I'm to frugal to spend $79.95 on a gym bag, but I'm sure lots of people will. Report

Recently saw a gal at the gym with one of these bags...First thought was "How cute.". Then I saw her removing lots of stuff from it to ready herself to change into workout clothes; then I thought "ALL that stuff fit into that bag?". Loved the rounded top; makes it easy to access everything without digging around. Thanks for the article, now I now the brand name...Sherpani! WooHoo! Report
Sherpani is right up there alongside Le Sportsac on my list of form-function-FUN bags. I have two smaller green ones, so don't you think I "need" the duffel to round out the set, lol? :D Report
Love it! I voted "lots of pockets." I like to put my smelly shoes in a separate compartment. And because the gym I go to has a pool, I like a separate pocket to put my damp suit into also. Add a spot for my post workout munchies and a water bottle. Plus my gym has shower facilities, so I need lotion, hair care products, a hair brush, etc, etc in ANOTHER POCKET! Yah, lotsa pockets are definitely a plus.
My cat threw up all over the zipper of my current gym bag, so I could really use a new one ;) Report

This would be perfect to have to go to the gym or even as an overnight bag Report

I'm getting tired of silly stuff like this! lol! Report
Love the light green one!! Report
would love to have this the BLUE!!!!!
I love the look of these sherpani bags! I voted lots of pockets but a close second would have been convertibility to a backpack. I was surprised more didn't value this! Hurrah for sherpani for making this pack versatile! Report
This duffel bag would be so nice to have. I currently switch out reusable store bags like you get from Target and the grocery stores. :) I have one I think from every store I shop at. Report
