What's In My Bag: Apera Bags Review and GIVEAWAY!

A few weeks I was contacted by Apera Bags to review one of their gym bags.  At first I was hesitant since I don't go to the gym to workout.  I was not sure if it was the best fit for me, but then I visited the website and I was blown away.  The bags were beautiful and seemed so useful, so I picked out the Sling Tote and waited for it's arrival.

I am not exaggerating when I say, I have not left home without it since my bag arrived.  It's the perfect bag for my busy life and works great as I transition from Mommy, to Pharmacist, to Runner.

I take it to work everyday packed full of my papers and normal "purse stuff".  There are pockets on the sides devoted to stowing shoes, yet I've found my huge water bottles fit perfectly in there too!

I take it with me when I grocery shop.

The pockets in this tote are incredible.  I have a pocket devoted to Nuun.  My Honey Stinger Chews get their own pocket.  It keeps everything organized and I no longer rummage through my bag, paranoid that I've lost my keys.

The material is antimicrobial, and I can attest to the fact that it repels smells, since I accidentally left some sweaty compression socks in the bag for 2 days after a half marathon:

All Apera bags are comprised of groundbreaking antimicrobial product protection that helps resist the formation of bacterial odor on the inside and outside of the entire bag. Our bags’ ventilated compartments, wipeable linings and washable inserts, ensure your bag stays clean, odor-free and most importantly, healthy.

Obviously, I am obsessed with my tote, but what impresses me the most is Apera's relationship with the Special Olympics.  They donate one bag for every 3 bags sold to the Special Olympics.  Having a buddy who is a Special Olympics athlete, I appreciate this effort so much!


And the best news, I'm giving away the same Sprint Pack that Apera Bags donates to the Special Olympics to one of you! And if you don't win, you can still get any BLUE Apera Bag for 40% off right now.  What a steal!  Also, if you sign up for their email newsletter here, you will be entered to win a bag every month!
