I like going to yoga classes, but I never really loved hauling my mat in and out of the yoga studio each time I went. That’s when I decided to look into yoga mat bags. The problem was, how could I find the best yoga bag without spending an arm and a leg?
- Shopping for yoga mat bags by price alone can be a huge mistake. Yes, there are five-dollar mat bags out there. Chances are they won’t last more than a month or two. If you want to get your money’s worth, buy a bag that is well made instead of the cheapest one you can find.
- On the other hand, don’t go spending a year’s salary on a yoga bag, especially if you’re not sure you’re going to stick with yoga classes. If you’re new to yoga you shouldn’t spend more than fifteen or twenty dollars on a bag. When you decide yoga is something you want to do long-term, you can invest in a more expensive bag.
- Unless you have your heart set on specific brand, avoid paying for a name. There are hundreds of waterproof yoga mat bags on the market. You don’t have to overpay for an expensive brand name to get a bag that looks good.
- Before you make a purchasing decision, research the different types of yoga mat bags out there. Some bags are simple sling designs that will only carry a yoga mat while others can carry one or two mats along with your personal accessories. Figure out which type of bag you want before actually taking the plunge and purchasing one.
- Shop around for discounts. While local sporting goods stores do offer yoga mat bags, they don’t always offer the best prices. Online stores often have deep discounts and you can find a wider variety of bags to choose from.
- If you really don’t want to spend more than five or ten dollars on a bag and you don’t want something that is going to fall apart after one or two uses, consider buying a used yoga bag. Used sporting goods stores, garage sales and classified ads are great resources for finding like-new yoga equipment at rock-bottom prices.
There are hundreds of yoga mat bags to choose from nowadays. By researching the different styles and shopping for the best prices you can find a bag that you’ll love without putting too much of a dent into your wallet.
