Mine has different compartments. It is a Nike and about 8 years old.

The one from Walmart is $30.00 and I got my OGIO at a thrift store for $5.00. My partner is now threatening to "liberate" my bag for her use.

Zorbs, that bag is beautiful! But I would have to decide whether I really want to spend $150 on it :)

SEARGENT MAJOR, a gym bag with ventilated pockets for shoes seems like the way to go (and I'm sure there's one that I can use that's not too aggressively manly :) I can put my shower stuff in the ventilated pocket and it will dry!

With apologies if I may intrude with a male view on the topic. Many of us male type critters use a purpose designed gym bag, mine is labeled OGIO. These are stand up bags with a full opening front, internal shelf, pockets on the "door" for various items and an external zipper pocket on the door. They are not "cute" but are functional having a shoulder strap as well as handles. Other bags have a separate opening for shoes or a lower compartment for shoes. My partner uses ziplock bags to carry her necessaries when going to the gym or traveling.

The OGIO ones can be a bit dear but you can often find them at thrift stores. Here is a similar one from Walmart.

Just a couple of suggestions.

I have a waterproof cosmetic bag that my grandma got for free - I put everything in there. I don't use a body puff, just the body wash so that I don't have to worry about things being wet. I do dry off the outside of my bottles with the outside of my towel and wash my towels with every use. As for the flip flops, I keep mine in a seperate pocket but they are always dry by the time I'm done getting ready for work.

When I go to the gym, I bring my own shampoo, conditioner, body gel, body puff, and flip flops. But after I take a shower, everything is all wet, and it's not easy to dry effectively (I don't want to towel off gross flip flops, and I can't get my body puff completely dry). Any tips for keeping my gym bag fresh and dry? Also, any tips for carrying shower things while wrapped in a towel without exposing myself inadvertently?
