    I have been looking for a low-key looking gym bag that also serves as a get home bag. I live approximately 1 mile away from my gym so I won't need to carry a ton of GHB merch. However I will need/want the space to carry a full change of clothes including shoes and personal hygene stuff. And I'd like to have a little extra left over room in case I wanna add something in my bag later down the road.

    One bag that really caught my eye was the Kelty Redwing 50. It looks like it offers a ample amount of space and certainly fits the low-key build. I just don't have much experience with Kelty or a good knowledgeable understanding of what materials make a great durable bag.

    Right now my budget is about $150 dollars. Please feel free to suggest other bags that you feel may work for me and give me your opinion on the Kelty Redwing 50.

    Thank you

    How about a gym-type duffel bag? Or would you rather have a backpack?

    A few gym bag options include:

    Emdom's TNT GYM Bag,
    GoRuck 20L/38L Gym bag,
    Original SOE Large Tool Bag and their Clothes Bag,
    Bad Bags (Best American Duffels),
    Red Oxx Aviator bags..

    A GHB for when you're a 10 minute run away from home? (6 min if you haul butt)

    Yeah I'd just look for a gym bag that can hold a change of clothes. Anything can work. I use backpacks -- Maxped, TT, REI, or Jansport depending on how much extra clothes I need to bring (i.e. bringing shorts or jeans makes a volume of difference).

    The new model Redwings are great packs, but the 50 seems like overkill for a gym bag or a really short haul trip. You can easily load 50-60 pounds of stuff in it.
