Sometimes I wonder if my car smells. Stay with me here.😛 I commute to work, which on a good day – zero traffic, all green lights, tailwind, not a cop in sight, don’t ask me how fast I am driving- could take me 35 minutes but in reality is closer to an hour on bad days. I try to keep it clean but my car usually ends up looking a little lived in. Throw in the fact that I run after work 2-3 times a week and carry everything in my car and well, it’s not pretty.
First thing I do post sweaty run is take off the sweaty top layer. It gets tossed wherever it lands. I wish I could say I always took it inside to the laundry when I got home but well… 😒 Then there are the socks. Not running socks, that would be gross. Knee socks. On cold mornings, I often wear a pair of knee socks on the drive to work then take them off and toss them on the floor of the passenger side to put on my heels. They were only worn for an hour but still, there would be times there were 3 pairs on the floors.
Ok, now that I’ve scared you all, where am I going with this?
I was able to try the Eagle Creak Pack-It Sport Active Set. Game changer, people, seriously. My car has been clean for weeks!!! No messy clothes lying around! Plus it’s cute and despite how it sounds above I am a sucker for organizational products of all kinds.
So what is it? It’s a 2 piece set- a Wet Dry Fitness Locker and a Shoe Locker. Let’s talk about the Fitness Locker or my new favorite thing.
From the website-
- Separate clean clothes from sweaty workout wear: put your clean and dry gear in the front, and dirty and damp clothing in the back
- The internal baffled divider allows you to pack more or less in the front and back depending on what you’re bringing
- TPU-coated fabric for even more water-resistance and odor protection
- Top grab handle so you can conveniently hang it inside a locker
- This organizer has a top load opening giving you easy access to clothing and gear
- Machine washable
- Ultra-light, water-resistant fabric
- Agion™ Antimicrobial treatment helps contain odor and prevent microbial growth on the Sport™ organizer
I can fit an entire running outfit in the back pocket, pants, socks, shirts, long sleeves, Buff, watch, everything. Once I change, my work clothes then fit in the back pocket. Post run, the sweaty gear comes off and goes right into the front zipper pouch. The back clothes have never smelled sweaty even with the close proximity even after more than an hour. Hmmm, I just realized I’m doing it backwards. Oh well, works for me!
I can’t wait to travel to races with this. I usually change post race and need to stash my sweaty clothes somewhere and I won’t put them in my my overnight bag. Now the only downside and it isn’t really a downside- some of my work clothes don’t fit in the pouch- some of my skirts and dresses are too poufy. They never fit in my gym bag either so nothing’s really changed there. 😛
The Shoe Locker– pretty standard, it carries your shoes and keeps the smell and dirt inside the locker and away from your stuff. Sounds simple, right? But I think we’ve established I’m odd right? I found a way it serves me better. It holds all my water bottles!
I swear I’m not crazy. My car has cup holders, yes, they are often too small or all filled already and I am left with water bottles rolling all around the passenger side. It was even worse when I was carrying the entire Beachbody container too, now I have little containers. One day I shoved all the bottles in the Shoe Locker and it was awesome! I may never put shoes in it again!

I have a race this weekend – and I’ll get dressed, go race, drive thru SB and go home and shower again and change… this has always worked well… but after this race, my next one is a 10k and then I train for the half and now I’m wondering if I won’t be able to wear my clothes home?!? This sounds like a great solution, though!
Sometimes I do but it depends on how long of drive I have back and how cold it was. I learned that a fresh shirt is kind of awesome post run. At least now I have a good place to stash the sweaty stuff. 🙂 Have a great race!
I could definitely use a bag like this for my workout clothes. I just use a shoulder bag from one of my barre classes and it’s just so unwieldy. I might have missed this, but does this bag have should straps on it?
It doesn’t, it has a little handle at the top- it’s more lunch box size but fits a surprising amount of stuff. It fits inside my gym bag when I need to carry #allthethings. 😛

I love all things organizational–like your Erin Condren calendar 😉
That’s also a food tracker that I am woefully behind on-😂😂
I enjoy the bags too and have been testing them out…I’ve been impressed with just how much crap I can stuff in them! Maybe, that could be the title for my review 🙂 Great post!!
Yes- they are so much bigger on the inside then they look! I’ve been able to fit everything I’ve needed and then some in the back pocket. I’m looking forward to using it on long race trips. 🙂
Looks like a great option for travelling with training gear too.. I travel overseas with work a lot and this could be a great option
Yes, they would probably be great for that! It’s amazing how much fits into such a compact space.
