Everyone's swapping their belt bags for Lululemon's trending crossbody — it's 'the 'perfect size'

Lululemon's water-repellent City Adventurer crossbody bag is getting lots of hype (and rightfully so).

Lululemon had a huge moment in 2023 with its super-viral itty-bitty Everywhere Belt Bag. This little bag was truly everywhere. But, let's be frank, its diminutive dimensions limited its practicality. Enter this year's (extremely practical) Lululemon sensation: the City Adventurer Crossbody Bag. About 9-by-7 inches, it easily holds your wallet, keys, phone and even a small notebook. Sleek, chic and priced to move, this is the "it" bag of the Lululemon line for 2024.

Lululemon's unisex City Adventurer Crossbody Bag: small enough to carry anywhere, big enough to hold everything you need (including the paperback you can't put down).

Unlike the Belt Bag, which folks generally carry across the chest, this bag falls at the waist (or, frankly, wherever you want it to fall — the sturdy strap is adjustable), so it's a bit more sophisticated.

Shoppers love the size — the City Adventurer is roomy without being bulky, with a smart configuration of pockets (one outside, two inside). It's lightweight, well designed and highly functional, but it still manages to have a slim profile.

The Lululemon City Adventurer Crossbody Bag is both chic and durable. Caught in a drizzle? No problem. This bag is water-repellant. The zippers are strong and sturdy. In other words, this is not an accessory you have to babysit.

With scores of rave reviews (the vast majority of which are five stars), the City Adventurer is on track to surpass Lululemon's bestselling Belt Bag.

"Love this bag," a five-star reviewer wrote. "Perfect size for what I need to carry. Accessible zippers, inside pockets. Just what I needed."

A few shoppers noted that this bag would be perfect if only it had an interior key strap. But they saw this more as a missed opportunity than a deal breaker.

It only comes in black, but it's available with either gold hardware or silver hardware — subtle, but it make a difference. With two interior pockets, plus an outside zip-pocket, there's a compartment for everything.
