Title: Half-mesh minimalist gym bag
Post by: Jorvik on January 18, 2015, 01:36:08 PM
I made this a while ago, and it's still going strong. I wanted a new gym bag which had a mesh area to let my shoes dry so they wouldn't smell horrible, and hopefully stay good for longer.

One half is 500D Multicam cordura, lined with pack cloth, the other half has a mesh base and side panel.

Inside has storage pockets for organization. It's fairly compact, so it fits comfortably in the small gym lockers, but big enough for my gear.

Since I made this I added d-rings for a shoulder strap, and a matching strap. It gets a lot of use, and it still looks great. And most importantly my shoes still smell fine!

Great idea for the mesh, and I really like the chunky straps.
In a place where 1 1/2" straps would do the job, those 2" straps make the bag look very stout.
