  1. Thanks, these are great choices for a yoga mat bag/sling. I haven’t actually bought a yoga bag so this comes in handy. Choosing between the Gaiam yoga mat or the Manduka Go Play. Both seem easy to carry and have some pockets. Are they also easy to clean? Thanks a lot!

    • Thank you for your feedback, cleaning could be an issue, that is why i personally use a sling. 

      I will check with the manufacturers washing care instructions if you like, and I can get back to you? 

      Kind Regards, Shane.

  2. thanks so much for this information – I think of the bags and slings you have showcased here, the one that would suit me best is the Manduka Journey ON Commuter Yoga Mat Strap as I don’t need the extra storage and this looks lightweight and easy to slip the mat in and out of. What other yoga accessories are available? Cheers, Karen

    • Thank You Karen for your feedback really appeciate it. The Manduka journey on Commuter is a great choice. 

      I have recently reveiwed Yoga blocks and Shorts and about to review Yoga pants. 

      Yoga apparrel market is a multi million dollar industry and growing every year. 

      Kind Regards Shane.
