Would your yopa bag hold a yoga mat plus manilla files, books, etc.?
Good question. The short answer is Yes.
The longer answer is that it depends on the size of the mat and books
and the weight. The bag is tested to 35 pounds, but I don't recommend
carrying more than 20-25 pounds. I packed an accordion folder file,
magazines, shoes and some miscellaneous things, to travel on the plane
with me yesterday. My accordion folder measures 9..75 wide x 13" x
1.5" deep, packed.
The back of the bag isn't padded, so you have to pack
accordingly. Smaller books, cds and magazines fit in the mesh pocket
behind the mesh pouch.
YOPA's lid and bottom are 9" in diameter. It measures 13" at the
opening. It's a stuff bag. It stuffs out to a 29.5 " diameter packed
with a sleeping bag. The bag is 30" long.
Will the yopabag easily fit a thick Pilates mat?
Will the yopabag easily fit a thick Pilates mat? Most yoga bags
won't. I do not want to struggle to fit a Pilates mat into what was
designed to be a yoga bag, but would love to get one if the fit is easy.
What all will this bag hold?
"Aloha from Hawaii! I'm looking for a bag that will hold two yoga
rectangular blocks (6"x9"x4") a mat (24" x 66"), strap, keys, water
and maybe additional clothes, towel, video camera inside case--about
size of rectangular block, snacks all at the same time. This looks
big enough to hold that and looking at the "Uses" section, there's no
shots of how much yoga equipment it will hold. Can this hold those
Yes, YOPA will accommodate all of your stuff! Here are some examples
of how I have seen YOPA packed. The exterior wrap straps provide extra
carrying capacity. I've also posted photos in the "Uses"
Will this bag accommodate my blocks being packed in it with my mat at the same time?
Yes, if all of your gear isn't oversized. I hope the photo helps.
How do I stuff YOPA into its mesh pouch?
"Since receiving my bag I've had a chance to "play" with it and
believe it is going to serve me well. However, your ad states that
"YOPA stuffs into its mesh pouch......" and, try as I might, I could
not make this happen. I've had other items in the past that fold into
a pocket or pouch, etc., so I'm familiar with the process of how to
make it work, but maybe I'm missing the key in this particular case.
This may sound silly but maybe instructions are needed for some of us
to get the job done. This is not important to me and I debated
whether or not to write to you about it but then I thought it might be
important to another customer. Thank you for a very useful and
attractive Yoga bag. Namaste' Molly"
Thanks for the feedback! You're welcome. I'm glad you like YOPA.
As far as the stuffing in to itself, I'll try to explain.
To stuff into the mesh pouch: First make sure the draw string is
loosened all the way. Then start turning the bag into the pouch, from
the bottom of the pouch first.. The pouch will turn inside out as you
stuff the bag into it. I start by stuffing the bottom of the bag
first. The back (with straps) and top follow. The pouch will be inside
out when the bag is in it. The draw string and key clip will be on the
top. You can cinch it closed."
I'm delighted I could be of help.
I would like to add a note of encouragement for any seniors that might
cross your path. I just became 68 years young. I have been
practicing Yoga off and on for the last 30 years --regularly in the
last couple of years. I feel great most of the time and am almost as
flexible as I was 30 years ago. I firmly believe I can attribute my
overall excellent health to Yoga and it's teachings. Keep up the
excellent work and thank you for a very positive Yoga experience.
What do I do with dripping wet gear?
When you put wet gear in, leave the lid off the contents. Cinch the
cord so the gear doesn't fall out, but the bag is open enough for the
water to drip (run out). Hang the bag upside down. The wet gear (fins,
snowshoes, snowblades, toddler skis and boots, etc..) will dry
out. You can hang YOPA upside down by the handle on the bottom of the
