What to Look for in Yoga Mat Totes, Carriers and Straps What you'll want to look for in a yoga back depends on what you need in your bag. Minimalist yogis might like the idea of yoga mat slings that include just a strap - creating a wearable way to pack your mat around. Other yogis, espically hot yogis might look for something with a little more room to carry their hot yoga towels, a water bottle, and a sweat towel. No matter what you're looking for or how much space you need in your yoga sling, bag, or tote we have you covered.
Brands to Look Out For: Brands like Sol And Selene features cool styles like backpacks, totes, and yoga mat carriers that provide plenty of room. Manduka is always a gold standard of yoga accessories and their Go Light Yoga Mat Carrier is no exception featuring awesome pockets for all your accessories and enough room to hold even the Manduka Black Mat Pro.

Manduka Be Series Tote Bag: "This bag is perfect for carrying all kinds of things. My Manduka Pro Lite mat fits comfortably where the little buckle is on the inside and doesn't make the bag difficult to carry like I thought it might. Even without the mat in it, this bag looks great and easy to use. I've gotten tons of compliments since buying it. Any kind of dust or dirt wipes off easily from the outside, helping to keep it look beautiful and new. The only problem is that if the bag is already full then it's tough to shove the mat in. I'll just have to work harder at keeping my bag junk-free!" (via Amazon.com)
Gaiam Yoga Mat Tote Bags: "I love this yoga bag! It is machine washable and therefore easy to clean. It also snaps fully open, so I can easily put my extra long, extra thick, sticky yoga mat in the bag. It's plenty big to toss my towel, tee, and water bottle on top of my oversized mat. Plus the outside, zippered pocket is great for keeping my keys, wallet and cell hand" (via Amazon.com)
