I have started working out, and avoiding using the gym equipment like skip ropes, or their tattered whiteboards + crappy markers is becoming something that I'm slowly wanting. As well, things like grip guards, knee stuff, and shoes ... I'm looking for a generic compartmentalized gym bag, ideally made of a lot of mesh. Doesn't even need to be all that big; 2 pairs of shoes @ most, a small towel, and some internal compartments so I'm not digging for stuff.
It seems everything is pretty sad, and I'm noticing my Google searches of "highly rated gym bag" or "best gym bag" are coming up with those "5 best bags" type lists, and are chock full of referral links and obvious bias. The best bags I've found so far are "Crossfit" bags, but as soon as you put the word Crossfit on it, it's 2x as expensive.
I apologise if this is the wrong forum, but figured I'm working on looking better, and getting more healthy, so thought I'd give it a shot. Otherwise, I'll probably just do like I do with my camera stuff and cut up foam to hold stuff, but that's not exactly ideal for sweaty gear.
