First off, if you're seeking a yoga mat bag large enough for one of today's larger mats -- the 26" or 28" wide mats that are so hard to fit in many bags -- you've come to the right place. This bag is perfect for that. It will actually fit both of my 26" wide mats (one thin, one thick and sticky) at the same time!
The design of this bag was clearly thought out from beginning to end. It's basically an outdoors-y "stuff bag" made large enough to accommodate your mats and with a few extra perks. The exterior cinch straps are the absolute bomb for securing that wet towel so it can air out or even that whole mesh laundry bag of stinky hot yoga remnants. The exterior mesh pocket can handle or two damp things or just hold your water bottle.
In case you can't tell, I highly recommend this bag. Get one!
Only issue I had was the inside zipper to a pocket on the lining was missing the pull tab. No big deal...I'll just glue on a button to pull it. I didn't want to waste time to send it back over a zipper pull issue when I mainly purchased it to carry water when I take the dog on long hikes.

I have the Kickstand Messenger bag and I am really pleased with it. The bag is light, water resistant, and really roomy. I like that there is ample velcro to keep the bag securely closed whether the bag is mostly empty or super full. The strap is a nice width that feels comfortable against my shoulder and skin. I like that there is only one piece of hardware to adjust the length of the straps which reduces further future waste with hard plastics but I would have liked it more if the excess strapping would be on the inside of the strap instead of hanging out. A small rubber loop could then hold it in place like a snug belt buckle. I personally love wearing the bag across my shoulder but one of my cycling buddies borrowed the bag and said she would have liked to have the option to switch straps since the bag is also perfectly sized to carry as a backpack.
