“ Brand: Adidas / Type: Hand Luggage / Style: Holdall / Duffle Bag „
I've had this bag for a while now and use it for the Gym. I got mine from Argos and paid around £25 for it which for a large gym bag, let alone an Adidas one is definetly a bargain price in my opinion. There were 2 colours available, the usual black and white Adidas color scheme or pink. I have the pink one. It's not a bright, vibrant pink and is more of a subtle peachy pink. I was a little hesistant on getting the pink one to be honest as I prefer to keep my bags quite bland but I couldn't resist as it reminds me of the baby pink Adidas tracksuits lol. It has the Adidas logo which is quite large on the front of the bag in grey, which shows that it is an authentic Adidas product, and the bag has white and grey detailing on the sides and bottom - it's identical to the picture above.
The bag measures 50cm in length so it is not enormous but it is reasonably large and is just the right size for a gym bag - I can fit my trainers, a drink, a towel and my costume/shorts in the main compartment and there will still be plenty of room left over which I think is really good as I struggle to fit all of my gym stuff in my other bags. It is also quite a deep bag and has a zip opening which ensures the contents of the bag are secure and nothing can fall out. Other than the main compartment these is also a side pocket which holds a decent amount of stuff - my phone, iPod and a packet of crisps or small post workout snack. The side pocket also has a zip so is just as secure as the main compartment and it's really handy.
The material of the bag feels almost like a thick cotton, polyester or perhaps suede (?), i'm not entirely sure. It has quite a rough texture but it reasonably soft to the touch. I have never washed this bag as it is easy to wipe clean with a baby wipe with minor bits of dirt however if I spilt a can of coke over it/dropped it in mud by mistake I am almost certain it would stain. The bag is extremely easy to carry as there is a main adjustable shoulder strap and two carry handles which are strong and don't strain my shoulder or hand when i'm carrying the bag as the bag and handles hold the weight well. I love the fact it has the shoulder strap as it allows me to carry the bag hands free. Overall I would definetly reccomend this bag, it is practical and ideal to be used as a Gym or travel bag as it holds plenty of stuff and is secure.
I bought this holdall last year when I had started to go swimming regularly and I was sick of having to take shopping bags to carry my towel etc. in. I bought it from Argos and admiteddly the main reason I opted for this one was because it was pink! It also appeared to be a good size for what I needed so I bought it for £24.99 that it was at the time.
I was surprised first of all at how bright the bag actually is, I thought it was going to be a very pale pink but it was a lot pinker than that which might not be for everyone, but I didn't mind because I do really like pink. The other colours of the bag are greys which compliment the pink very well. The size of the bag was actually bigger than I expected and was certainly more than enough space than I needed for my swimming stuff, but I'm actually glad because I have been able to use the holdall for other things including 2 nights I spent away from home and I even took it to the hospital with stuff in when I had my son.
The zips on the bag are good quality and even when I've had the bag filled to the brim they have held up very well. As well as the main part of the bag, there is also a side pocket which again is surprisingly large and I can actually fit a pair of shoes in there if I need to, so this holdall more than caters for my needs. It is also worth mentioning that the bag isn't too heavy to carry either, even when it is full because the material is very soft thank goodness.
There are 2 different ways to carry the bag around, first of all there are 2 shorts handles which velcro together to carry the bag easily and this is the way I tend to use the bag the most. Then there is also a shoulder strap so that you have the option to carry the bag over your shoulder which is good if you have a lot more stuff with you. The shoulder strap isn't detachable though which is a bit annoying as it hangs there when I am just carrying the bag by the handles. Instead I tuck it inside the zip compartment to keep it out of the way, but the option to detach it would have been nice.
The size guide for the bag says 50cm which I'd say is the Width of the bag, the Height is about 30cm. Overall this is a decent sized and good quality bag - it is certainly very girly so not for those who don't like pink!
