We are proud to have won another Silver Award for one of our designs.
We have won the Silver Award for "Best Running Accesory" in the 2014 Running Awards. This Award was voted for by end users internationally, and confirms that the "Fleetfoot II" that we launched in 2011 remains a favourite 'must have' running accesory for women runners who want to carry their running essentials comfortably - for training runs to full Marathons.
Here are some of the replies that we received:
We recieved this review from a costumer about the Goddess III Ladies gym and travel bag:
"Firstly, can I just say that I don't usually do 'reviews' or email people etc but I just wanted to email you to say thank you for my Goddess III gym / travel bag!
I absolutely love it.
I've had it for a few weeks now and couldn't imagine my daily life without it any more.
I'm a person who likes everything to have a place and everything to be in its place and along with trying to cram in a quick lunchtime workout during my work day, this bag has been amazing.
At first glance you might think that the different compartments are overkill and / or gimmicky but I can honestly say that there isn't a compartment in the bag that I don't use!
I LOVE the laundry bag because it makes emptying my bag on an evening so much easier and the wash bag is deceptively large I now actually manage to remember all my toiletries and moisturise after a workout simply because I now have a place for my lotion to live so I don't forget it! I've never been so organised with my gym clothes / work clothes / extra change of clothes.
Add onto that the brilliant customer service I received when ordering I couldn't be happier!! Thank you very much, I've had a tough year of it health wise and this was a present to myself after finishing treatment and hoping to get back into feeling fitter and healthy again and it certainly makes my gym visits feel even more amazing and special!"
Just had a great review from Psycotherapist and Life Coach Mel Riley about her Fleetfoot II running bag.
"I started running in the winter and my thermal running gear just doesn’t have pockets, so I would stuff my phone in one glove and my Ipod mini in the other and manage to hold a water bottle. My door key would
go round my neck on a string. When I got hot I couldn’t take my gloves or hat off as I simply had no free hands. It just was more of a juggling act than I wanted to have at 6.30am.
A Personal Trainer tweeted about the Fleetfoot II running bag on twitter and having watched the video, I just had to have one and it arrived two days later.
Now I can run with my phone, keys, water, iPod, tissues and coins for if I need more water and when I get hot my gloves and hat go in the bungee bit at the back.
I wouldn’t be without my Running bag and in the summer when I am take the dogs out in a dress with no pockets, I add a few poop bags and I am good to go. Keys phone, tissues are all in there and it doubles up as a great dog walking bag, because with two dogs I need my hands free.
Some say its expensive but I think its worth the investment, the design is great and it so lightweight and comfortable, I would be lost without my little bag.
I love my running bag and I am waiting eagerly for the Godess III gym bag.

We appreciate new customers unsolicited feedback very highly - this is how we learn how to make great products. This is what Claire G. Had to say about her Fleetfoot II running bag:
"I thought I'd drop you a line to give you my feedback regarding my new Fleetfoot bag. It arrived on Friday as promised and I was excited to try it out.
I had a 7-mile run planned on Saturday morning in training for the BUPA Great Birmingham Run in October so I fitted it as instructed once I was dressed before proceeding to pop in my essentials. At first glance, it didn't look like I'd be able to fit as much in it as the pictures suggested but I was amazed to find how easily things fitted in and were easily accessible when I needed them. I didn't have a water bottle to fit it (one is a large bottle I have ready for a post run drink and another is a handheld, loop-type running bottle) so I bought a bottle of water from the shop which worked although I was worried it might leak. I have since bought a small 330ml Systema bottle which fits a treat!
I found during the warm up lap that it wobbled about a bit and that I had fitted it too low on my hips but it was easy to tighten it up on the move. Soon into the run I almost forgot it was there! It really is very comfortable and didn't hurt the small of my bag considering I had a bottle of water sat there for the whole route. Although it cost much more than I really wanted to pay for a running bag, having tried it I certainly think it's well worth the money and will be using for all my long runs.
I noticed on Saturday that one of our run leaders had the same bag and I asked her about it. She said she has had it for a while and was singing its praises too. I think a few other ladies in the group were heading home to Google them!"

Here is a new Un-Abridged long term review of the Goddess II bag by one of our customers, Alison L.
We thought this was a good through review which tells a full story of her views on our bag, which we are happy to share.
"I promised to give you feedback on the GODDESS II Gym Bag. Having used it almost every day now since it arrived on or about 21 January, so fast approaching 3months – I now feel suitably qualified to provide you with an ‘experienced user’ review :o).
The look and style of the Goddess II is one of understated functionality. It doesn’t attract comment or expressions of interest in the changing room. This said, I find its appearance pleasing and easy on the eye.
The structure and composition of the Goddess II is extremely hardwearing. However, the materials used do have the slight negative of making the Goddess heavier than my previous gym bags. This is not a problem if you are hitting the gym by car, but if you do need to carry your kit on public transport, the extra weight may cause some issues.
I find the size and dimensions pretty much perfect. The Goddess carries well over the shoulder and fits easily into the average-sized locker. I’m renowned for taking far more stuff than I need most places, including the gym, but even allowing for this I am able to fit lots of kit into the Goddess with room to spare.
Design & Functionality
The design of the Goddess clearly has functionality at its heart, and for me it ticks all the boxes in this department. There is a compartment for everything you can think of, but not in a ‘pockets-for-pockets-sake’ way. Plus, it is easy to find what you are looking for, once you become used to packing and using the Goddess to suit your own style and needs.
The GODDESS II is without contest the most expensive gym bag I have ever owned. Is it worth it? If you are a regular gym-goer and like to be ultra-organised, then absolutely YES. If you gym-it on an ad hoc basis, and don’t need a level of organisation that boasts ‘a place for everything and everything in its’ place’, then NO. It’s a definite thumbs-up and YES from me :o). I like to rationalise every ‘expensive’ purchase I make by dividing its price-tag by the amount of uses or wearings I get out of it. Thus, for an initial outlay of £75, so far the Goddess has cost me the princely sum of £1.50 per workout in the 3 months since I bought it. At this rate, after a year of continued regular use the cost will be as low as 38p per visit, considerably less than the price of the double espresso I have before my workouts to spur me on!!
With best wishes,
