Gym Bag Recommendation

Hey All,
Just purchased some rings, skipping rope, dip belt, chaulk. Wondering if anyone has some recommendations on a good gym bag to carry all this stuff back and forth to my gym. I know I could probably just use a supermarket bag but thought maybe some of you CF'rs had some better options

What kind of stuff do you carry in it? If any future recommendations cold include what you stuff in it that would be great. Maybe one that holds an extra pair of weighlifting shoes would be cool

Re: Gym Bag Recommendation

Jeff,

I recently picked up a new medium sized duffle bag from Mountain Equipment Co-op for about 30 bucks. It holds my rings, skipping ropes, chalk bag, shoes, workout gear,etc...can't go wrong with this one IMO.

Re: Gym Bag Recommendation

I'm wonderign if this one might do the trick. I'd liek to keep my shoes seperate from anything that might be chalky like the rings and chalk (obviously)

How about one of the IronMind bags. Like the Tough-as-Nails Quarter-Ton trucker bag. I love the products these guys make.

You get what you pay for. The Ironmind stuff is tough, and personally, I'd support Randy Strossen. I checked the website and can't tell where he has his bags made, you could always give him a call. The small bag sells for $35 and would do the job.

I use a Best American Duffle to hold my rings, I've had it for years and have not had any trouble with it. I have several of them and use them to carry everthing fom cycling gear to firewood.

I have ripped a few of those inexpensive duffles in the past, or had them fall apart. I have no problem paying $50 for a bag, as long as I know it won't fall apart, or can be repaired or sent back. Both the Ironmind stuff and BAD bags fit that description, as does Patagonia. YMMV.

Re: Gym Bag Recommendation

I've used this: (safe link to Eddie Bauer bag):
http://www.eddiebauer.com/eb/product...&sc=&lp=w1i004

for several years. Bombproof so far, but all I carry are the "light" stuff (clothes, shoes, jumprope, bands). I have a very heavy vinyl bag I use for "heavy" stuff (paralettes, wallball, etc.)

Re: Gym Bag Recommendation

Fill the iron mind bag with sand and take it to the gym! That should turn some heads.
