Sports and leisure activities are great ways to stay fit and explore the world around us. But many people do not pursue these activities because of the expensive gear and equipment they have to buy.
Since Decathlon arrived on our shores in 2016, this dilemma (or rather excuses not to exercise) is gone. Without spending too much on clothing and equipment, you can now start a new exercise regime without bankrupting yourself.
Decathlon Singapore is known for offering high-quality gear and equipment for a bargain price that you can’t find it anywhere else.
If you plan to check out Decathlon Singapore, here are the 12 best value items we recommend you to buy in the store.
1. Sports Bag
In every sport or leisure activity you plan to do, you need a bag where you can put your equipment and clothing. This $7 Team Sports Bag Kipocket in Blue or Yellow can fit your gear and other items by up to 20 litres. It has two major compartments where you can put sports equipment and your clothes while the other one works for other items.
The fabric it uses is lab-tested which guarantees that it is very durable. When you are not using it, you can fold it away into the side pocket and store it wherever you want.
