{Holiday Gift Guide} ChicoBag Messenger 12 rePETe Bag Review and Giveaway {CLOSED}

I love taking a reusable bag with me everywhere I go.  I like using them when grocery shopping too instead of loading my grocery items in plastic or paper bags at the store.  Of course no matter where I go, I always have one with me because I never know when I might need one.  ChicoBag offers a lot of really great reusable bags for shopping trips or even for everyday use and most of them fold up into a little pouch for easy carrying!  I was given the opportunity to work with ChicoBag on a review and I was sent one of their Messenger 12 rePETe bags for my use and review and I absolutely love it!

It comes in four great colors and they have plenty of room for just about anything!  I switch my purses or bags all the time and I really enjoy using mine as a purse.  I like this style of bag to carry all my necessities.  My hubby will probably tell you that some of my “necessities” really aren’t necessities but he’s not a woman. 
I love the room in the main part of the bag.  It’s very durable and no matter what I carry in it, it’s comfortable to wear on my shoulder.  There is a smaller zippered pocket on the front as well after you lift up the front flap.  There is also plenty of room in there too!  The shoulder strap is very easy to adjust.  All you have to do is flip up the plastic piece on the one side, adjust the strap length and then snap the plastic piece back down to lock it in place.
I love the little clip that is on the really small pocket on the inside.  I hook my keys to it so that way I don’t have to go rumaging through my bag just to find them.  This little pocket is great to store my gum or lipgloss, lip balm, etc.  The front flap fastens closed magnetically and I haven’t had to worry about anything falling out of it due to the design.
The side pockets allow for a great way to carry a bottle with you and they stretch so it’s easy to fit even an odd shape bottle to keep it snug in the pocket without falling out.  Of course if I want to just carry it with me instead of using it as my main bag, I can compact it so that I can easily carry it with me!  To make it to the compacted form in the picture above, turn the small accessory pocket inside out and stuff the whole bag inside it.  At first I thought there was no way I was going to fit the whole bag inside that small compartment but it was easy to do.  Then all you have to do is zip it closed.  The clip ends up being on the outside of it so that you can clip to anything you want to!
The Messenger 12 rePETe Bag is made from recyled bottles and is made from 85% recycled materials!  This is another thing about it that makes it so special.  The bag is made really well, and I love it!
