The Best Gym Bags For 2023...
Discover a variety of our favourite gym bags this season:
But first... let's introduce you to the new colorways that some of our workout bags come in...
Holdall and Barrel Bags
Bold Collection Bags
The Bold Collection arrived this year with three of the best gym bags you can get your hands on. Coming in 3 different sizes, we have the Bold Gym Bag (large), the Bold Barrel Bag (medium), and the Bold Bag (small).
Our Bold Gym Bag is a one-stop solution for all your gym kit needs. Big enough to take from the gym to the airport, you can find this bag in new coastal blue and black colorways. With a carry handle, shoulder strap, water-resistant design, and separate wet compartment for your sweaty garms, this holdall bag is the gym bag you need in your life.
The Bold Barrel Bag is a step down in size but not in functionality. This gym bag has a three-way carry design and is spacious enough for all your workout goods and has been designed with your commute in mind - featuring a separate mesh compartment for your shoes. Covered in a matte coating, this bag is durable enough to survive you throwing it into the trunk of your car after demolishing leg day.
Small but mighty, the Bold Bag is one of our newest gym bag designs and one we're highly fond of. When you want something small and practical to throw your resistance bands, wrist wraps, and lifting gloves in, this is the gym bag for you.
Everyday Holdall Bag
Look no further than the Everyday Holdall Bag with its open compartment, zipped wet pockets to keep the rest of your clothes dry, and mesh compartments for all your daily needs. For those who have a gym bag always packed and ready to go, this bag will be your new essential. With a sleek and stylish design, this is your hybrid work-to-workout bag. Redesigned for 2022, and coming in two sizes (medium and small), this is the bag that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle.
Studio Gym Bag
Beautiful, and practical. If you want an elevated gym bag design that focuses on the small details and special touches, you'll love the twist front design, shoe tie bow detailing, and satin finish of The Studio Gym BAg. Featuring a handy mesh slide-in pocket to the front, and bungee cord to change the shape of the bag to suit your 'fit, keep all your stuff safe and secure while you're on the move.
We love the hands-free practicality of a backpack, and our Sharkhead Backpack might just be one our favourites. Minimalistic in its silhouette, but loud in its graphic print, this is a simple no-fuss backpack designed to fit all of your essentials for the gym, so that you can head out the door with ease.
Everyday Mini Backpack
Part of our Everyday Series, the Mini Backpack features a sleek silhouette and tiny dimensions (10.5L to be exact) for your on-the-go needs. This is the city girl backpack, made with an ultralight build for total comfort throughout the day; whether you use it for a last minute workout session or a class that requires minimal kit - it's mini, so pack light!
X-Series 0.3 Backpack
Our popular X-Series Backpack welcomed new colorways to its third rendition in 2022. The style was met by the new mercury purple and core olive, two fresh tones for fans of the more muted color palettes. This is the bag for everything; from training gear to tech, food prep to textbooks, you'll feel confident and secure with this backpack on your shoulders. Complimented further by multiple compartments that allow for easy organization and a buckle harness that provides additional support and comfort while traveling.
If you like the design of the X-Series, but would rather have a hardwearing duffel bag, look no further. Explore the best duffel bag to take to the gym, and beyond.
A brand-new design for 2022, and we've decided to make it old-school. For that school sports kit feel, the Sharkhead Gymsack is a lightweight drawstring backpack with a single compartment to house your gym gear. Drawstring designs have long made the best gym bags, and we're excited to bring our version of a classic to the table.
Cosmetic and Wash Bags
X-Series Toiletry Bag
Your essentials deserve the best; they wouldn’t be called essentials if not. The X-Series Toiletry Bag is a leader in travel, with a multi-purpose, collapsable design, secure waterproof exterior, and stealth-like aesthetic. Match your toiletry bag to your X-Series 0.3 backpack in the two soft new hues for a seamless and stylish look to your accessories.
Social Club Cosmetics Bag
Carrying your cosmetics is much easier when you have a dedicated bag that is just the right size for the job. Especially one that boasts a design you can't help but be drawn to, with a collegiate-style color and unique graphic Social Club design. Carry your cosmetics and facial products in style for freshening up after training, you'll be wondering why you didn't purchase this earlier!
Everyday Tote Bag
It's the bag you've all been waiting for, our Everyday Tote Bag is here. Featuring a hardy utilitarian design and coming in three colorways to suit your preference, this is the Mary Poppins bag of Gymshark bags. Infamous for being able to fill to the brim with every possession you own, this tote bag transitions from the best gym bag to an everyday bag for shopping trips, running errands, and commuting to work.
Sharkhead Crossbody Bag
Little bag, big business. The Sharkhead Crossbody Bag is our tiniest addition to the bag department this year and provides a lightweight, practical storage solution for everyday wear. This simple yet stylish cross-body bag is perfect for storing your keys, wallet, and phone and comes in two colors to match your look wherever you go.
