"I bought this to use as a gym bag as I wanted good structure and also not the%*$!bersomeness of the usual duffle. The Lug Life Puddle Jumper is the best bag I have ever used for this purpose. It is so well organized with useful pockets galore (I actually have a couple that are empty because I just did not need them which is a good thing)- The lug bag fits well into any locker and holds so much stuff.
I wear size 10 running shoes and I am able to fit my shoes plus flip flops into the shoe compartment and still have enough storage for 2 work outfits, a warm up jacket, socks, swimsuit, goggles and all my beuaty essentials without the bag bursting at the seams. The bag lets you pack for good weight distribution and it also stays upright easily.
The bag may look small but don't let that fool you (and I am a pack rat) I will be purchasing another one to use exclusively for travel. In addition if I have another baby I will so get this to use as a diaper bag; it would have been so much more useful as a diaper bag than any of the ones I had utilized prior.
Cannot say enough good things about this bag"
"I am a grad student and music director, so I am constantly hauling things around. This bag has been the end-all bag for me - not sure I will ever buy another! The quality is top notch, and I get so many compliments on the striking red color.
The long handles are extremely comfortable to carry and perfectly support the weight of the things in the bag. I love the little feet on the bottom that help it to stand up on its own (and protect the lovely fabric from icky floors).
The organiation of the bag is great - the bottom compartment is perfect for gym shoes (I can also fit my clothes in there) and leaves ample space on the inside of the bag for the typical three textbooks, assorted papers, and iPad that I carry.
Front pockets are excellent as well - store my wallet in the front for easy access and chapsticks in the top parts.
One of the great things about this bag that may not be obvious when scoping it out online is that there's an internal waterbottle holder that is fantastic - I routinely put my insulated LL Bean canteen in there and although that is a spill-proof model, it keeps it from rolling around inside my bag and potentially leaking all over my stuff. The waterbotte holder is elastic and secure and still maximizes the space.
If you buy one bag to carry your hoard of stuff but still be chic and organized, make it this one!"
