The great thing about Sunshinejing’s Travel Duffle Gym Weekend Bag is that it has all the necessary compartments and features of a quality gym bag but it doesn’t look like one. This stylish design makes it easier for you to transition from work mode to gym mode.
Nike Radiate Tote Bag

This bag is designed to carry your gym gear from clothes to water bottles, but it has a sophisticated professional appearance. It’s perfect to bring to work in preparation for a stop at the gym on your way home.
Aer Duffel Pack
This product was recommended by William Chin from Pickfu
By far, the best bag I have ever owned for day travel or business use is the AER. They are not as pricey as Tumi bags, are extremely durable and have a lot of travel space. I usually carry my personal laptop, work laptop and an IPad which this bag handles with ease. You can also carry a change of clothes and a pair of shoes as well and a water bottle on the side! This means that in-between flights that you can go to the airport gym and get a workout in. Overall, the back-support, multiple sleeves for laptops and 4 different compartments makes it easy for you to carry a lot of different stuff. The best part about the bag is it has internal compartment liners so your gym shoes don’t have to touch anything with the main compartment!
Kuston Sports Gym Bag
This product was recommended by Osama from Outfitrs
It has everything I need for my morning gym routine, as well as a change of clothes for 2 jobs. I work in an office then go to teach college courses after on some nights, and the shoe compartment, waterproof pocket, mesh side pocket, and sample space make it an ideal bag.

Excellent design and adorable features like space to put your sneakers separately, a side pocket, central big zipper compartment and waterproof material that make it durable for lifetime use.

This product was recommended by Tim Bigknee from SightsAndInsights
This backpack features a minimal and professional design so that you can transition easily between the office to the gym. The best part of this bag is the hidden shoe compartment that allows you to store your sneakers for your workout without causing your backpack to get too bulky and unprofessional. The bag is made of water-resistant, durable material and has a built-in charging cable so you can charge your work tech on the go.
