Yoga mat bags typically fall into two categories: ultra-crunchy or perfectly functional but not very stylish. Look, I understand that yoga mat bags are a niche market, but when you invest so much in the rest of your workout attire, you want your accessories to match. I so happen to prefer mine without screen prints of Buddha, Ganesh, or the words "om" and "namaste."
After a long search and a few years of sub-par nylon models, I came across LeSportsac's asana yoga bag. Its black patent fabric goes with everything and it retails for just $62. It's like the Alexander Wang of yoga mat bags: sporty, sleek, dare I say sexy? I've had mine for at least four years now and it shows no sign of wear and tear, plus it garners compliments every time I trot it out.
