Boken BagThis product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

I have had a lot of bags over the years, trying to find just the right one.  I have had diaper bags and purses, but nothing that I really liked.  Our family is very active, and as much as I want to cut down on the size of the bag I carry, the reality is that I need a versatile bag that can hold a decent amount of stuff, but is also lightweight.  I think the closest I have come is a plain nylon tote bag – but that doesn’t offer features I need (like a zipper across the top and pockets).

Boken BagBoken Bags are lightweight, but packed with features.  This is a good-size bag, but folds down into a neat, flat square.  I love how it is so compact, and it is great for travel.  You know how you accumulate a ton of stuff when you travel?  Perfect way to bring along an extra bag!

I thought I would use this bag mostly on trips, but I have been using every day.  The Boken Bag has been so versatile, allowing me to carry the usual contents of my purse, but also the variety of items that I end up carrying.

Among the items in my purse is my daughter’s epi-pen kit.  This goes everywhere with me.  I love that it fits perfectly right in the end of the bag.  It is always right there at a moment’s notice.

When I use this bag around town, I find that it is great for carrying some basics – a book, snacks, a sweater (or several, for the kids), and so on.  One of the great things about this bag is that it has a great side pocket perfect for a water bottle.  My water bottle goes with me just about everywhere, and it is on the large side, so it is nice it actually fits in a pocket (I don’t think it has ever fit in a side pocket before – or even one of my bags, for that matter!).

When we travel, I get so frustrated when I end up trying to carry a bunch of stuff.  The kids hand me things, from jackets to half-eaten snacks, to things they find and much much more.  With my Boken Bag, I can put that stuff in my bag.

This bag goes on errands too, making it easy for me to bring a sweater (for those stores that feel like an icebox!) or anything else I might need, and always the epi-pen kit.

The material for this bag is not only lightweight, but it is a water-resistant, durable material.  We are outside a lot, so I want something I can take to the beach and not end up covered in sand.  I can set this down on a hayride or corn maze without being completely covered in little bits of straw.  It wipes clean and is washable, which has always been a huge struggle for me considering how active we are.

Another great feature is that the bag has shoulder straps as well as a strap to allow you to carry this as a messenger bag.  And there are backpack straps in there as well – so no matter what the situation, you are covered, and you can find a way to comfortably carry this bag.

Overall, I love my Boken Bag!  It has been versatile and makes my life a lot easier.  Plus it comes in a variety of awesome colors!
