New bag alert! If you're looking for a new everyday purse for spring and summer that checks the important boxes: practical and trendy, Lululemon's new Multi-Pocket Crossbody Bag 2.5L is no exception. Some shoppers say they like it even more than Lulu's viral belt bag — and we can see why. It's cute and compact and has enough space to stash all your necessities, plus a few extras. It doesn't get too heavy or bulky, either, making it perfect for everyday wear.

Scroll on to find out why we believe this is the new summer "it" bag and why you might want to get your hands on this hot item.

Casual and compact, the new bag from Lululemon is a smart wardrobe addition for all-day outings where you don’t want to lug around a ton of stuff.

With 2.5 total litres of carrying volume, it has a zippered main compartment, as well as interior pockets for holding all your essentials: phone, keys, wallet, hand sanitizer, earphones, lip balm and a small book or notebook. Plus, it has multiple exterior pockets for easy access.

There’s even a D-ring on the outside—designed to attach a nano pouch or keychain.

The bag measures 10" x 1.6" x 5.1" (25.5cm x 4cm x 13cm). The strap is 55.1" (140cm) when fully extended. However, it’s adjustable, so you can wear it at the length you prefer.

Like most other water-repellent bags from Lululemon, this style has a body made from 100 per cent nylon with a 100 per cent recycled polyester lining and mesh.

Don’t throw it in the washer or dryer, and stay away from the dry cleaner, too. Instead, spot-clean it as necessary. It’s easy to wipe down!

Take your pick of three colours: versatile Black, Vapor (a soft white) or Cascadia Green (a version of classic Kelly Green), which is pretty for spring and summer.


The Multi-Pocket Crossbody Bag 2.5L is a hot new item, but people are already comparing it to the Everywhere Belt Bag.

"I prefer this one over the belt bags," writes one reviewer. They continued to say it has "more functional pockets" and "can fit a lot more things" despite being "a little narrower."

Another person called it the "perfect lightweight travel bag" and said they love how the pockets "keep everything organized."

While one person said it's a "pretty cute bag," they said they ordered the white bag but said it was more of a "grey colour."

Another shopper shared that they wished the strap was "a tiny bit wider."


The fabulous new Lululemon Multi-Pocket Crossbody Bag 2.5L is a versatile choice with plenty of compartments for organization. Plus, the long, adjustable strap makes it work for more heights, body types and style preferences.

Will it replace the Everywhere Belt Bag as Lulu’s new “it” style? It seems it already has for some. However, keep in mind that it's a bit narrow, and the strap isn't as thick as others.
