Rated 5 out of 5 by Nando Great for "from work to gym"
It is a great gym bag that allows you to move from work to your workout in style. The quality of the product is really good. The handles and the zipper pieces are really well made. There are two outside pockets on the extremes of the bag that are very helpful. It does not have an internal pocket, which you can live without it. The size is perfect as well. It is not too big, so you don't look odd in the subway going to work and not too small. I was looking for a canvas bag since I have my concerns on the typical unattractive nylon bags, but this nylon is really subtle and pretty good on wet days. I bought the green color and it adds a great accent to your outfit, while matching with pretty much any color pattern or style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DBNYC Great Gym Bag
After my daily gym bag from another certain popular bag producer had it's zipper break, I took a chance on this bag. It is the perfect size and style for the gym. There are four extra pouches that help keep me organized, my earlier bag had zero. This is a small detail that really, really makes a difference.
Quality so far seems great. Design is classy, and understated, which is what I feel like a gym bag should be. Also will be perfect size for when I start biking to work again. Could also work as a weekend bag if you're a light packer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stolenbikes Great, stylish, multi-purpose bag
Just picked one of these up today in blue. I'm happy I did. It's super classy, understated, and has just the right amount of J Crew details. I'm not sure what other reviewers expected about the size...the dimensions are listed in the description. I think it's a great size, more than adequate for work-to-gym travels. I'd have to agree, it's probably a long-weekend bag at most, but if you were going on an extended trip, why not just use more of a suitcase? Anyways, very excited to start using this more! Also, the color is a bit different than the pictures...it's most similar to the last one, although you can't really make out the rich camel color of the strap. It's more of a subdued blue. Not what I would call "dark navy" - especially considering J Crew's affinity for using indigo dye in many of its menswear products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robert Time to retire your backpack
This bag is as at home in the gym as it is on a weekend trip to DC or Philly. The build is high quality, the nylon water resistant, and the bag plenty big to be used for everything other than multi-day travel.
If you have to wear a jacket or blazer to work, you can't wear a backpack, but most bags either look cheap, or are too big to bother hauling around. No one likes a floppy nearly empty bag that's a black hole for keys and other necessities. I was looking for a multipurpose bag that is a nice complement to whatever I was wearing for some time. I saw the Harwick duffel bag and knew it was immediately what I was looking for. I have no doubt that its timeless design will serve me well for many years. As others have mentioned, it is a good size, and the construction is very solid. I went with blue and couldn't be happier.
