ChicoBag Sponsor Review

My husband has been riding his bike the 6 miles to work each day. He often needs to carry some paperwork, or his lunch with him and struggled to find a bag that would work well. He didn't want a large backpack to carry for it is way to bulky riding, and he didn't need that much room. I checked with ChicoBag to see what products they had to fit his need. Chico has compact, reusable bags, perfect for the person trying to decrease their carbon footprint.

DayPack15 rePETe 

The perfect bag for the need! It has been used by just about every family member. I used it for Vacation Bible School to carry my supplies, my daughter used if for carrying some things to a birthday party, my son used it to card his things around on a short trip. It is very easy to use, the adjustable straps allow any of us to use it. I love that it is made from recycled PET ripstop fabric!!
There is even a side pocket that you can safely store a water bottle.

I love that when it isn't being used it can fold up nicely into a small pack and be stored. We have some very big, bulky backpacks with wheels on them that are so cumbersome to store. I definitely like the ChicoBag better!

ChicoBag is greening up Back to School and offering this Cross Body Messenger bag to one of my readers!
