HOW TO PACK YOUR GYM BAG

Helena Searcaigh

Posted on August 20 2018

A stylish, multifunctional faux leather backpack or tote should be able to take you anywhere, from the gym to date night.   But how and what should you pack? Here's how we do it at Fact + Fiction! 

1. Shoes in first 

Only Fact + Fiction features a trademark antibacterial and anti smell shoe compartment in all our bags. We also recommend putting your shoes or meal prep in first for ease, and then packing the rest of your kit on top. The shoe compartment is also flatten out, so you can squash it down if not using it. 

2. Water or shaker

Fact + Fiction's range of multifunctional backpacks and totes all come with a separate, insulated, upright bottle holder (Lea has two!) Perfect for stopping spills and for easy access when you need it - no need to take the whole bag off if you're feeling thirsty or rummage around in a handbag to find your bottle :) 

3. Kit in the main interior section 

Pack your kit in the roomy, anti smell middle section. You can also add your wallet into the smaller interior zip pocket in here to keep it extra safe. This section will fit a full change of clothes, small towel and a make-up / toiletry bag - its also breathable and anti smell so you don't need to worry about sweaty kit going in! 

4. Laptop at the back 

Our range of gym perfect backpacks are all laptop friendly so  you can carry your laptop in style. Slip your laptop into the padded back section (we recommend using a protective hard case when carrying your laptop) once you have your kit or change of clothes in. 

5. Phone in the easy to reach side slip pocket 

Our unique phone pocket keeps your phone secure - just thread your headphones through the security loop and attach them to your phone! Its also each to reach and you don't have to take off the whole bag to access it. 

6. Keys, travel pass and snacks in the front zip section 

We don't recommend putting your wallet in here as its on the front of the bag - instead, use it for items you need to access a lot like a travel card, hand cream or lip balm.
