Apparelnbags sells affordable, durable items that you use every day. We have a lot going on during the school year, and one of the things we are always doing is carrying things around from place to place. Usually we use a duffle bag or two. Since we're carrying fold-up chairs, water bottles, and dirty clothes (when we're doing the sports thing) what I would really like is a very large, easy-to-carry bag with big pockets (preferably lots of 'em).

& a large u-shaped opening for easy access make this bag a real winner!
Apparels n Bags offered me the chance to review one of their big duffles to see if it was right for me. I selected the A4 27 inch, two-color sports duffle in royal/black. Because it was a single item, this bag is priced at $17.84 on their site. It is worth noting that they have discounts for multiple-item purchases. It is a nice looking bag, with big easy-open access on the top. It also has five good-sized rubber square feet on the bottom to keep it from getting dirty, while allowing it some stability when it's on a flat surface.

It goes all the way across, as does the one on the opposite side
The bag comes with four external, very roomy pockets; one on each side, and two in the front.
|Large front pocket has a smaller horizontal pocket on the front.|
All pockets have sturdy, rubberized zipper pulls
The two pockets in the front are comprised of a large one, with a smaller one attached to the front (the first thing I thought of for that smaller pocket is that it would be great for travel documents, like your plane ticket, if you're using this on the go!). It also has a two (padded) carry straps that Velcro together if you want to do that, and a long, detachable cross-body strap to make it super easy to transport.
My favorite thing about the bag is that it was big! And when I say it was big, I do mean it was big. Listed at 27" this would easily carry everything my entire family of four needed for an overnight stay somewhere. My youngest son is 48" tall, and weighs in at 43 lbs. As you can see from the video above, even he fit in the bag... though we're nicer to him than that... around here we just have him carrying the bags (kidding).
|When I say this bag is roomy, I mean this bag is roomy.|
I'm telling you this bag is big enough to hold my 1st-Grader!
He wanted me to show you, and so there you have it: Proof in the Pudding
or should I say, 'the proof's in the bag?' ;)
He's got a cold right now, and his voice is almost gone, but he still thought hopping in the bag would be a great way to show you how big it really is, and he's not wrong (he's only 7 and already has the mind of a blogger... I'm so proud). :)
This bag comes in two colors, the royal blue/black shown, and also red/black.
Apparel n Bags does not just sell bags though, they actually sell a huge variety of useful, practical, every day items, at a reasonable price. In fact, I was looking around the site, and found some nice looking sweatpants that I'm considering purchasing for little man to wear to soccer.
