ChicoBag makes a whole line of reusable bags for shopping, travel and storage. Their quality, reusable alternatives help reduce household trash created from using one-time-use bags. Plus they help save money and their compact bags fit neatly into a purse so you always have a handy bag to use on the go! We had a chance to review the Sidekick and Travel Zip 3-pack.
ChicoBag's Travel Zip 3-pack has three different size zipper bags that can hold a variety of items. The smallest size is ideal to hold contact cases, pills and vitamins, chapstick and other small items. The medium bag can be used as a cosmetics or makeup bag or used to hold items such as pens or pencils, a nail file, or baby feeding utensils. The large bag is ideal for holding anything medium-sized; phone chargers, headphones and an ipod, a small notebook, a comb, or headbands.
These Travel Zip pouches help keep you organized while traveling or during every-day activities and outings. They're perfect for keeping in a purse or diaper bag, and the set of three zippered pouches is available in three fun patterns. The quart size pouch has a clear front and can hold toiletries for air travel. The medium and small pouches help keep small items exactly where you need them. No more digging through your purse to find a nail clipper or hair clip. Each pouch also has a wristlet for easy transport.
I love the modern prints and simple functionality of these zipper pouches. I use them to hold small baby items for my infant that go in my purse, so I don't have to take a diaper bag everywhere I go. The large pouch perfectly fits a burp cloth, tiny socks, and a pacifier or two.
I also received the Sidekick Flora Crimson Crush for review, an across-body bag that rolls up into a tiny pouch for easy storage. I was really surprised to discover how large the bag is, since it rolls up so compactly. Simply tuck in the strap, fold in the sides, and roll the bag up and clasp it shut with an elastic loop and button closure. The Sidekick holds up to 25 pounds and becomes a decent sized tote to hold notebooks, accessories, groceries, and more.
I keep the Sidekick in my purse in case I ever need an extra bag. It's made from water-resistant fabric so it's a perfect tote for holding wet clothes and towels after swimming. Other uses include bringing home books from the library, holding stuffed animals, or using it as a park bag when you don't want to risk getting your purse dirty. The bag is made from durable nylon-type material with reinforced stitching and a long over-the-shoulder handle.
The Sidekick also comes in Aqua Dreams and Boysenberry Bliss, as well as several solid colors. It's the perfect sized cross-body style reusable bag for everyday use.
ChicoBag's product line includes reusable shopping bags, reusable produce bags, reusable snack bags, outdoor and travel bags such as the Travel Zip, and fashion reusable bags like the Sidekick Cross Body. Each of their bags feature modern prints or classic solids and streamlined designs with practical functionality.
