Leather Bags for the Gym

Table of Contents

    Whether you hit the gym regimentally each day, every few days, or whenever you’re in the mood for a good workout, one thing that you’ll need to take with you every time is a quality gym bag. Not only will you use it to carry your exercise essentials – such as trainers, towel, and toiletries, but the right bag can also be double up for weekend getaways or carrying around town.

    When it comes to buying a bag for the gym or a yoga or dance class, don’t skimp. You want it to last you a good number of years before needing to be replaced. For a gym bag you can depend on, your might consider MAHI's duffles, backpacks or totes. The great thing about leather is that it's incredibly durable and able to withstand plenty of wear and tear, leather bags also look great, and are ideal if you’re heading from the office to the gym or an exercise class.

    A stylish and Practical Solution

    The Columbus 100% leather holdall is a great choice, as not only is it easy to carry, with its extendable shoulder strap, but it’s very deep too, which means it can easily accommodate everything you need for your workout. There’s a large external zip pocket for your trainers, gym kit and towel, as well as a smaller internal pocket for keeping your valuables safe whilst you’re exercising.

    Another leather holdall worth taking a closer look at is the Eckhart. With two buckle straps securing the main zip opening of the central compartment, it’s one of the securest leather holdalls on the market, making it ideal for use at the gym where you won’t be able to keep constant watch over your possessions.  

    Leather duffles are an equally good choice of gym bag, not least because they’re incredibly spacious, as well as sturdy. The Classic and Armada duffles are made from 100% leather and feature a hard base to protect their contents, making them as practical as they are rugged and stylish. These leather duffles are very much built to last and won’t let you down after just a few months of use.

    Leather backpacks also remain a popular choice for gym-goers. They’re easy to carry with their extendable back straps, and are deceptively spacious too, offering all the space you need for your gym kit and valuables. The Classic Backpack has two internal compartments as well as two zip pockets whilst the Nomad backpack has a large central compartment secured by a leather drawstring and an internal zip pocket, as well as two generous-sized front pouches. If you do opt for a leather backpack, you won’t need to worry about there being enough room for your gym essentials. Leather backpacks are very versatile and can be used as a book bag or overnight bag as well as for use at the gym, which is worth considering if you’re seeking a multi-use bag.

    For a gym bag that’s as fashionable as it is functional, a leather tote is also well worth considering. The Classic Tote is very feminine but robust enough to withstand heavy use, which will be important if you like to work out regularly. It’s also great for professional environments, so if you tend to hit the gym straight from work, this could be the ideal choice. The Classic Bucket Bag is another leather tote worth taking a closer look at, particularly if you want your gym bag to come with an extendable detachable shoulder strap and leather drawstring fastening.
