Shopping and traveling just became a little more fun with my new Hobo rePETe reusable bag and the Travel Pack rePETe from The ChicoBag Company.
The Hobo rePETe is an expandable carry all that can be worn as a stylish hobo-style bag, or expand to accommodate impromptu purchases. The bag features a large zippered main compartment, interior zipper pocket, front slip pocket for added organization and storage and a tie together strap that allows for a custom fit and adds a feminine touch.
I was excited to see the bag arrive in a small package, because I knew it would take up so little space in my suitcase! The bag, which is made from recycled materials, unfolds out into a 17″ wide by 28.5″ high bag! Then the pouch turns into a zippered pocket on the inside of the bag!
I decided to un-stuff the pouch and test the bag’s sturdiness before packing it for my upcoming cruise – I was easily able to carry a load of groceries, with no sign of weakness on the bag’s part. I then read the specs and found out this bag can hold up to 40 pounds! I found out these specs, too:
- Embossed recycled PET ripstop fabric (rePETe fabric) is made from 100-Percent post-consumer recycled plastic bottles.
- Adjustable tie-together strap, secure zippered main compartment and outer magnetic copartment. Clips anywhere to be unforgettable.
- Made with certified fair labor and one-year limited warranty.
- Machine wash cold, no fabric softener, hang to dry.
I also brought the Travel Pack rePETe, which is a lightweight and secure travel pack – so handy when I was spending the day in Cozumel. The pack features a large zippered main compartment, side and top stash pockets, adjustable straps, a sternum strap for added stabilization and a storage area for a hydration reservoir. I knew my personal items were safe inside, and the travel pack was comfortable on my back. I definitely recommend this as a day pack for anyone traveling this summer!
