Introducing you all to my brand new companion – my JimBag holdall! If you’re anything like me, you’ll know that venturing around from work, to home, to the gym, to friends houses, to weekends away and to literally just about anywhere, a good roomy bag is needed. I’m terrible for carrying my life around with me on a daily basis. I mean, I just don’t know what I’m going to need or where I’ll end up popping to. I bring my make-up bag with me, my uber heavy diary (swear it’s the heaviest hardback diary out there), fragrance, and not forgetting my gym kit. You never know when you get that spare hour to hit the gym!
I wanted to invest in a large size hold all which is ideal enough for going to gym, but spacious enough for those nights away too. Sometimes I’ll head away for a night away from my home during the week, so it means having a practical hold-all with me during work. This is where my new grey on grey Jim Bag holdall has ticked all the boxes. How stylish and gym-friendly is this accessory?
I think it’s a little bit more special to me too because the JimBag brand are actually Manchester based, which is my home city. I love the way they have incorporated a little Union Jack label on the bag too, giving it that British feel. Apparently, the holdall version of the Jim Bag is one of the most popular choices, and I can totally see why. It is made from 100% cotton canvas for a sturdy finish, yet is super lightweight and durable. It is the largest and most spacious in the JimBag range, with plenty of room for extra sports equipment, supplements or lots of toiletries (which I’m terrible for). I love it because I can pop my gym towel in the bag too and it all manages to squeeze in!
Whilst the holdall is the perfect gym bag, I make extra use of it as an overnight or weekend bag, as mentioned above. Its just really easy for me to transport around, with strong side handles for easy pickup and an adjustable detachable shoulder strap.
The bags come in a range of shades, so there is one to suit everyone’s personality and likes. Of course, I’m such a grey girl, so it was inevitable I was going to chose this one. They also have a fantastic selection of barrels, duffels and rucksacks too, in case you prefer a smaller option.
This holdall costs £49.95 and is available at the JimBag website here. I totally love the style and feel I have found a new daily companion …
