Jamie Kwrote a review of Flowfold Zip Porter Limited 16L Tote - Women's on August 18, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I’m absolutely a bag nerd, and I’ve had a lot of them. The thing that’s great about wide bags like this is that taking stuff in and out is super easy. I also absolutely love the zipper feature, it means I can keep the bag more secure. Even if I don’t necessarily need it zipped, it keeps the bag from opening up a lot if you have a lot of stuff in there. Especially if you’re moving around doing stuff, and lean over and nothing falls out. This is more important for me if the bag holds more volume (so more stuff). Smaller bags it isn’t as much of an issue.
The bag is also super tough. I love when I don’t have to even be careful with bags. I’m really lazy. I don’t want to have to place a bag down gently, and the material of this bag means I can throw it around if I want to.
I also love how the Heather Gray color looks really nice and more casual, everyday. Sometimes I like my bags being bright, but it’s also nice to have the option of it not looking crazy outdoorsy. I can also use this bag for just about anything, from a weekend stay at the beach in Long Beach Island to camping last weekend in the Catskills in the pouring rain. I use it to keep all my food items that didn’t need to be refrigerated while camping, and it fits a ton! It’s not waterproof, mind you, but it definitely repels rain or water for a beat or two so you can get it into your tent or car and it’s completely dry (unlike me).
The only problem now is that I want to use it for too many things, I might need to buy another one ;).
