Got this bag in purple and glad I did. The lighter, neutral color will pick up "dirt" when laying bag on floor in gym, car floor, etc. Gaiam- please make this bag in darker colors. Also- zipper is nice feature as it secures mat and anything inside but zipper does break , as mine did, so needed to get a new bag. Front pocket roomy enough to carry several CD's for yoga music practice, which is not a feature on many of the other yoga bags.
