Get fit, look fit: Some of the best gym bags and backpacks around

No more plastic bags.

You can imagine the shame of having to go to football training as a child carrying a plastic bag from Tesco with your boots in it.

True, the Rubberbandits made plastic bags cool again, but forgive us for going down the more conventional route and picking out some of the best looking sports bags out there.

adidas Medium Duffle Bag - €57

What we love about adidas is its simplicity. The no fuss, simple designs are a big plus for us and this bag is just that.

Padded straps, lots of pockets and a simple black finish.

UNDER ARMOUR Hustle Lite Back Pack - €32

In Ireland we are at the mercy of the elements so a waterproof bag is a must. Under Amour are big hitters in the sports brand business and we like the look of this simple backpack.

Jack Wolfskin Royal Oak Backpack - €71

We love this one. Looks like some sort of man-bag/backpack hybrid, but no less cool because of it.

Plenty of storage on board with adjustable straps makes this one to be desired.

The North Face Bardu Bag - €38

When you want to travel light and look pretty fantastic, look no further than this little gem from North Face.

Adjustable shoulder straps and the key fob attached ensures you'll never lose your keys again. Just take our money now!

Converse Standard Duffle Bag - €35

It's a bag for all occasions, if your occasions happen to be going to the gym and weekends away. A nice roomy bag, again with adjustable straps and topped off with the classic Converse brand logo.
