This post is for sure dedicated to my Boss Ass Babes (BAB’s) that love to do endurance events.
GORUCK is doing a GREAT job at trying to create some items that will appeal to the ladies. This has included RUCK with curved straps (to make the chest straps more comfortable for our lady lumps), t-shirts, and now these totes and clutches.
I have to admit, this was one item that I immediately purchased when it was released. My friends refer to me as “The Bag Lady” because when I travel I always have a ton of bags with me. My friends see it as obsessive packing and clutter… I see it as organization. Let me break it down for you…
I am going on a 5 day trip which will include me doing a 5 K in the middle of the trip. I typically will have bags (similar to the size of the GORUCK totes) filled what clothing or whatever I need for each day. I will distinctively put ALL of my race gear into the PINK bag so it is easy for me to find. So this eliminates me having to dump my suitcase when I travel. I just look for whatever bag I need, grab it, and go! It also helps me to triple check that I have packed everything that I need. Because I am packing a specific race bag I can make sure that I have EVERYTHING I need for the race in that bag. So in a essence it is also like a packing check list for me. I will put the filled bag in my suitcase when I know I have everything I need in it. If I am missing something I will set the bag out until I have what I need and then place it in my suitcase.
These bags are GREAT! For me they are the PERFECT size for every day travel. I have used them at the grocery store and when traveling (to have my food, ipad, and other important things) to have easy access to the things I know I will need. Not to mention there is a small side pocket that is located INSIDE of the bag which is also a great asset to the tote.
Dimensions 14″ x 10″ x 5.5″ Volume 12.6L
I do have ONE slight concern. There is no way to close the bag or keep it closed. For instance, when I travel with this bag on the plane and I have to put it on the floor under the seat in front of me…the contents of this bag fall out. My quick fix is that I just tie the straps together. BUT I do wish there was a Velcro or zipper at the opening of the bag to have a way to close it if needed. The traps are very strong and the material is very durable. These bags were made to last and undergo daily abuse.
Other than that one slight issue… I really enjoy the bag and will use them regularly (especially while I travel).
This is also a great asset to have to your gear inventory ladies. I bought one and will get more! This clutch is perfect to hold your keys, your phone, and any other items that you need easy access to. I will use this clutch alone or I will toss it in my Ruck (or purse) so I can easily find the contents that I need.
This is a great size and is very durable.
MY ONLY wish is that it was made in another size that was slightly bigger than the “large”. Like I said, it is a great size BUT I wish it was just a little bigger. And maybe come with a wrist strap that can be attached to it.
I am happy that GORUCK is making more items for the ladies. I am excited to see what else they are able to come up with. When I can I will purchase those items and let you know what I think/how I feel about them. I have purchased a few things from GORUCK and I can honestly say that I have really enjoyed (and used) all of the items that I have purchased.
I give these items two thumbs up! So ladies, feel free to grab some. Fellas… if you are looking for the perfect gift for your lady I highly suggest these.
