Sold me, but upon further inspection...Full disclosure, I'm a bag fiend and have purchased from Bravo, Tumi, Duluth, Herschel, M0851...etc. and this Lulu bag caught my attention for suiting my needs as a carry-on companion.
I literally bought it 4 hours ago and was really impressed with how well thought out the compartments are. However, when I brought it back to the office, I found that my Asus Zenbook (ultrabook) doesn't fit in the laptop sleeve, the shoulder strap doesn't have a shoulder pad, and the canvas keeps attracting dust and lint.
Unfortunately, the sales associate asked if I she wanted me to cut the tag (which I stupidly agreed to) and I feel i'm stuck with this.
It's a really nice bag but upon further inspection, it could've used a couple extra improvements to make it actually worth the $158 price tag.

Good Bag But The Shoulder Clasps Are FailingI like this bag and have the gray colored one. Not as big as the other gym bags you see from other competitors like Nike, Adidas etc. but the bag has a more upscale look and feel to it which is why I chose to buy it.
I've owned the bag for just under a year but the should strap clasps are beginning to fail on me and the little spring that keeps the clasp closed is now loose and doesn't securely keep the clasp shut at all times.
I have had numerous instances where I put the shoulder strap on but the edge manages to wiggle itself out of the loose clasp and my bag falls on the floor as I'm walking.

Decent, but not the best for priceFirst off, good positives on size of bag, shoe compartments and laptop compartment.
The Bad? Bag doesn't hold shape well, and shoulder strap is very narrow, and if fully packed, bag really digs into your shoulder. What I didn't realize is that the stitching on the strap at the carabiner is very abrasive, and this actually ruined a brand new jacket of mine as it wore away at the fabric. I don't expect anything to be done about this, but very upset that an expensive new jacket was ruined by an expensive new duffel bag.

mehAlready own the Assert Backpack but wanted something a little bigger to hold my work computer and gym stuff. This bag's laptop pocket is way too small I can't even get my laptop in with the pocket unzipped... I have a Lenovo ThinkPad which is one of the most sold business laptops and very average sized. Pretty disappointing.
Other than that, bag looks nice and seems well built.
Kinda funny, the photos on the website show a laptop sticking half out of the pocket. That's what mine looks like if I try to fit it in.

Poor Quality BagI purchased this bag to replace my old lululemon bag which I bought three years ago. A month after I purchased the bag the carabiner which attached the bag to the strap broke when I was carrying it. I took it back to the store and the sales associate replaced it for me no questions asked, but the exact same problem happened again after a few months later. It's really unfortunate because the bag is designed really well and has some great compartments, but the quality is lacking.

Sac intéressantJ'utilise ce sac depuis maintenant pratiquement deux mois.
La dimension est parfaite pour différentes activités sportives. La poche pour les souliers est d'une bonne grandeur (Soulier taille 11). Les différentes poches rendre les items dans le sac organisés. Il se transporte bien.
Le point négatif, mais vraiment non négligeable, la matériel ramasse toute la poussière. Je n'ai toujours pas trouvé un truc facile pour l'enlever. (Mon vieux sac de 10 ans n'a jamais ramassé la poussière.)
J'ai acheté celui de couleur noir.

Fantastic Bag - Poor Strap DesignI use this bag for traveling. I can easily fit a weeks worth of clothing in the bag as well as toiletries. There are many different pockets to assist in organization and the shoe compartment is a bonus. Utility wise, this bag is fantastic. The downside which I would personally categorize as significant is the shoulder strap. The strap is quite narrow (about 1.5 inches thick) and has no padded sleeve. After carrying the bag around for a while it starts to dig in to your shoulder and become uncomfortable. Bag is still useful for traveling but for the price paid, I would have hoped for a bit better of a shoulder strap or at least a bit of padding.

Stylish and spacey for my needsI usually do not leave reviews but I noticed that there were not many when I purchased this bag. The reviews seemed black and white so I wanted to create an authentic response that will hopefully help someone with what they are looking for.
In my bag I have:
2 pairs of shoes - size 9.5 (in the shoe compartment)
a lunch bag - which is the small Lululemon bag you get when you purchase something, a towel, and change of shorts, underwear and top (in the main compartment around the shoe compartment)
my showering stuff - travel shampoo and body wash, travel toothbrush/toothpaste, deodorant, travel size hair product (in the inside zipper pouch found in main compartment area)
my electronics and charger mini case (in the mesh pockets found in the main compartment area)
1 protein shaker bottle (on the outside side pocket, opposite of the shoe compartment)
my laptop - pixelbook which is in its own case too (in the laptop compartment)
my wireless headphones, locker lock, and asthma inhaler (in the small outside zipper pouch opposite of the laptop pouch)
Overall, I love this bag, Looks very aesthetically pleasing, I got the grey color and it is very modern yet neutral to be either masculine or feminine. I will say that when i got the bag it looked a lot smaller than I thought it would. However after fitting my numerous things into it, it stands up to its name of being 37L. I really liked that I could fit 2 pairs of shoes into the shoe compartment (my foot size is a mens 9.5) and I still had a bit of space in the shoe compartment. with that being said however the shoe compartment does take up quite a bit of space. like I said I have 2 pairs of shoes in mine and I would say that it takes up about 1/3 of the main compartment room. With space being left on the opposite side of the shoe compartment and a good amount of space left above. I would assume with only one pair of shoes you would definitely have decent area. I do have my shaker bottle in the side pouch and it did pop open while in it (thankfully I only had water in the bottle), needless to say I can attest that it is water resistant material, not sure if it was a bag thing or a "me" issue causing the water bottle to open, you could definitely fit two small water bottles, not sure if it would fit 2 protein shake bottles though..... I will attest and say there is not a lot of padding around the laptop area so be cautious if you do put yours inside the pouch, hence why i have mine in a case for extra protection...
The only two things I will say that I do not like about the bag is that
a) it does not hold its shape (I used the bottom liner of another bag i had to fix this issue)
and b) the two mesh pouches inside are awkward sizes... I feel like they are too big that things might move around and fall out, I also feel they are too big to use them as a drink holder (like most mesh on bags are used for). However I will admit that I do not have any accessories that many some other people may have and this could potentially be a great pouch to be used for that purpose. Instead I use it to hold my electronics pouch (which containers my chargers and such)
Either way I personally believe the pros outweigh the cons by far, Hence the 4/5 stars, however, the cons are minor enough that I will get over it (haha).
P.S. I forgot to mention how I also like that I can strap my yoga mat between the handles while I carry it with the shoulder strap!
Hope this review helps!

Stylish but not functionalI really wanted to love this bag. I eyed it for months before purchasing it. It looks great, stylish and appears to be well made.
However, thats where the positives end...
It does not preform well to say the least, it lacks function as it holds no shape. (possibly missing a more structured bottom), the bag is always lopsided from the shoe pocket being too small... ( i am size 11) The shoulder strap could use some some padding at nearly $200 a bag... The laptop section doesn't really fit a 13inch Macbook.. even if it did, its so poorly padded i wouldn't trust my computer in it... Ultimately this bag is close but still comes up short when it matters me...

Excellent Travel/Day bagI've been in the market for a new travel duffle that also doubles as a day bag. This bag is truly a great product. It fits enough clothes for a weekend trip and the dedicated laptop sleeve is extremely convenient.
The only downside is the material of this bag. I got the black one and it seems to catch a lot of lint very easily. Besides that, it's a great bag overall!
