There are 5 external pockets, and one internal pocket so you have a place for everything, as well as extremely padded straps to make sure you are comfortable on the go, with no stress on the neck. The material is extremely durable, reflective, and it’s very sleek in all black.
If you have a 15” laptop, this backpack is not for you; it will only fit up to a 13” laptop. There isn’t a compartment for tennis shoes; however, most tennis shoes will fit comfortably (assuming you don’t wear size 15 shoes).
With a padded laptop compartment in the back, it ensures your electronics are extremely protected, but with no added bulk.
Inside, there are many pockets to hold a water bottle, a small zipper pocket to hold smaller items like pens, a large zipper pocket to hold your ”sweaty unmentionables,” a padded 15” laptop sleeve—and it’s wide enough to hold multiple notebooks or an entire gym outfit with ease. You can even throw your yoga mat in-between the handles and clip it in. They’ve truly thought of everything.
The 15” laptop sleeve is a tight squeeze. It does fit! But, it may take a little bit of finagling to get it in there. The other downside: the color options. Since Lululemon’s colors are usually seasonal and rotate frequently, there are sometimes only a couple colors at a time.
I hope you are ready to invest in a durable bag that suits every one of your professional-to-sweat junkie needs—because we’ve hit the jackpot with this bag when it comes to not only functionality, but also looks.
Not only does this backpack hold a 15” laptop, but it also has a fully insulated 3-meal compartment that keeps your prepped meals from spilling throughout the day. It comes with 3 leak-proof meal prep containers, a supplement organizer, and ice packs. There is enough space in the main compartment for shoes, change of clothes, and a toiletry bag. This bag was built for functionality and comfort.
The only drawback that we can find is it may not be as ‘professional’ looking as you’d like. If you are looking for a sleeker bag, this may not be the option for you. It was definitely built for function, although it does come in multiple color options depending on your preferences.
Now this bag is for our extreme sweat junkies that commit their lives to their health and wellness.

I used to find myself carrying 2 bags everywhere I went: 1 for work, and 1 for the gym. I never wanted to mix the two, because it felt so wrong mixing my sweaty gear with my work portfolio. But then I realized how much easier it could be if we could just combine the two and find a functional bag, or backpack, that had separate compartments for my computer, tennis shoes, and my post workout, sweaty gear. It had to be big enough to hold all my items, but not too bulky, and it was also important that the bag look sleek and somewhat professional.
From work to working out, these are 3 bags worth investing in if you’re a sweat junkie who often runs from work to the gym and back.
