Gear Review: J&P Yoga Bags (Good For Smiles)

Gear Review: J&P Yoga Bags (Good For Smiles)

If you're looking for a new bag for your Yoga mat, but you don't want it to look like your average mat or gym bag. Then you're going to love these adorable J&PYoga bags. The initials stand for "joy" and "peace" (aww). The woman who started this business wanted her company to be socially responsible, so part of the proceeds of each bag is donated to The Smile Train, a charity that provides cleft surgery for children who otherwise can't afford it. Her hope is that her bags will bring smiles to the people who use them, and they'll smile even more knowing they helped a child smile, too.

The bags come in four styles, and the Abigail ($89.95) is pictured above. I love the pink and mint green modern fabric inside the bag, and the fact that it has a key clip sewn in (I can never find my keys when they're loose in the bottom of my bag). There's a big zippered compartment inside too so you can stash a snack, wallet, or cell phone. Each bag comes with an eye pillow (perfect for Savasana), and a strap to modify poses. This bag is super roomy and lightweight; it can even handle a heavy Manduka Black Mat inside with room to spare for a water bottle and change of clothes. I like how the straps are long, so it feels more like a purse than a mat bag.To see the other styles, click the images below.

My friend has this bag and I bought the 'Jared' style. LOVE the way they are made and we do smile every time we use our bags.

Note cute enough to pay $90 for one. My Gravis one was like $50 and I think it's cuter/more functional than that. It is nice that they donate to charity, though.

How great that part of the proceeds go to The Smile Train. And I love that they come with an eye pillow and matching strap. Very cute.

Great charity, I would definitely consider buying one of these on that basis alone.
