About the Brand


Flex-N-Fly is bridging the gap between travel and wellness. Our company provides stretching, relaxation, and yoga classes to travelers before they board their flights. Our products are eco-friendly and ethically made for the minimalist traveler. Our desire is to take care of the mental health of travelers that suffer from anxiety.

We understand that many people suffer from anxiety when it comes to flying, so we want to be a safe place for you before and during your flight. Our products reflect our mission to be more sustainable and minimal.

Our Flex|Bags are our anti-theft minimalist travel bags that come in both genuine leather and vegan leather. Chosen as Forbe's "top 14 sling bag," it's a must for travelers and people on the go. Our Flex|Mats are our eco-friendly machine-washable yoga mats that were chosen as Bustle's "#1 beginner yoga mat." We would love for you to shop and support our small business.

The material on the The Flex|Bag "Barranquilla" is so soft and designed so well. It's not like most fanny pack because it's so sleek and fashionable. I'm able to fit my phone, card wallet, lip gloss, a mask, and hand sanitizer inside the compartments and it still doesn't feel bulky. I love it!

Bought the Blue Rise yoga mat & love it! Doesn’t slip, very durable, super soft, machine washable, and my dog's fur falls right off of it with a shake (I have a husky). It’s thick enough to give plenty of support during your practice but not bulky at all - it doesn’t feel heavy and it’s small/easy to store. Even came with a yoga strap, which was a nice surprise. Wonderful quality mat that I expect to have for many years to come.

"I just got my Blue Rise travel mat & I love how soft it is! I love touching it & my baby loves laying on the soft surface much better than my other yoga mat that he refuses to lay on. We had such an amazing time enjoying the beautiful weather outside and doing Mommy & Me Yoga. When we were done it was so convenient to just toss the mat in the washing machine, then let it hang dry. I love that the mat is so compact when rolled up and I look forward to taking it with me on my next vacation."

LOVE love love my Flex Bag! It's so versatile and looks great with everything! Very high quality material and craftsmanship. I look forward to using this bag forever.


This bag has become my wardrobe staple…I now have one in every color. Compliments come as frequently when paired with a sheath dress at the office as they do when paired with jeans and combat boots on the weekend. The added bonus being of course the functionality…my playground fashion has never looked so good and so practical!
