OG Sack {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

A mom is only as good as her bag.  To tackle the 100 things on our plate, and the different roles we fill, we’ve got to have an extremely versatile, functional, sturdy bag.  Women and mothers out there (and fathers too!), I’ve found a sporty bag that will checkmark everything on your wishlist for a bag that can do it all.

I’m excited to introduce you to the OG Sack.  (OG stands for Original Green).  This is the Navy Hybrid bag, and THIS is a company that has cut no corners.  They make extremely high quality sacks that can be whatever you want them to be.  A diaper bag, grocery bag, gym bag, vacation bag, etc.  Each bag is handmade from the same material that makes mountaineering bags.

The instant I pulled this out of the box, I said something like “whooooah, this is NICE!”.  I was even more and more impressed with every feature I discovered.  There are pockets everywhere, a removable liner that can close with a drawstring and toggle, and three different straps that allow you to carry it like a grocery sack, over your shoulder as a messenger bag, or as a backpack.

This bag can hold A LOT of stuff.  See how small my pair of shoes looks? Or that loaf of bread below?  You can haul a whole lot of anything in this.  My head is just exploding with ideas of where and when this will be so completely useful.  Camping trips, family vacations, even soccer games where I have to bring equipment, uniforms, and cold treats for afterwards.  And hey, this could be great to take to the beach!

You’ll be impressed with every strap and every pocket.  The criss-crossing adjustable straps on the front can fit a yoga mat, a bottle of wine, or probably a 2-liter bottle just fine.

Ok, lets go back to these liners.  They are removable, making them easy to hand-wash.  You can purchase more than one so that you can leave the contents in one sack while you replace the bag with another liner.  Now you might think that a removable velcro liner is a big pain to align correctly and match velcro pieces exactly, but with this bag, it really is a piece of cake.  Because the liner is sewn into a shape that matches the outer bag identically, the moment you slide it in into place, the velcro is already aligned and you just lightly press it around with your fingers.  No hassle.

OG Sack also kindly sent me their COOLER LINER!  That’s right, this could also be an insulated bag, allowing you to lug groceries home in the heat of the summer, take drinks to the beach, and take cold food on hikes.  It fits into place just like the regular liners, but it has an insulated layer, with a zipper top closure instead of a drawstring.

K, take a good look.  Is there anything about this bag that makes it look girly or extremely feminine?  Does it scream “diaper bag”?  Not at all.  Would your man wear this around town, on a hike, to the gym?  Highly likely.  He’d probably think is was just as awesome as you do.  Ladies, you could designate this the ultimate diaper bag that your man will not mind toting around.  Father’s Day??  Think about it.

This bag is very fantastic, and sold for $85 in a variety of colors.  The liners are sold for $20-25.

So remember how I’ve become such a yoga advocate as of late?  There’s just something about it that makes me feel sophisticated, healthy, and strong!  What DOESN’T make me feel sophisticated is the way I look when I’m carrying all my yoga equipment with a gym bag, water bottle, and a baby in each arm as I lug myself to the gym!  I must really look like a circus some days.  I knew I needed something to help me look more ‘put-together’ and this Aurorae Yoga Mat Sport Bag/Multi Purpose Crossbody Sling Backpack is just the ticket.

This is not just a backpack!  This is the ultimate yoga bag, gym bag, carry-everything-you-need, yoga mat holding super bag!

I liked it from the moment I first picked it up.  It is heavier than a typical canvas bag.  It is much stronger because it is made from durable, heavy-duty polyester.  It has two large individual pockets for storing anything from gym clothes to school supplies, with just the right compartments to store small things in front and your water in the mesh side pocket.

As you can see, the selling point of these bags is how they expertly carry your yoga mat!  There are two securing elastic adjustable straps that hold the mat snug and rolled tight, regardless of its awkward shape and weight.  When I carry this around, I don’t at all feel like the mat could fall out or unravel.  Here are my favorite features: A hole for earphone buds…
IMG_5952…and a cell phone pocket!  Perfect.

Really, you could use this for yoga, hiking, biking, travel, the gym, or even school/office.   I think the navy blue color is great, as it allows this bag to be comfortably used for all sorts of occasions and places, though the other colors are just as fun and the colors really make these more personal.  Another treat from Aurorae Yoga is their Lavender Scented 100% Soy Wax Pledge Candle, which is also today’s giveaway prize!

This candle smells like a field of wildflowers!  Even my husband (the scent snob) walked into the room and said something to the effect of, “What is the glorious smell?”  It is non-toxic and smokeless, and has a burn time of 30-35 hours!  I also think the recyclable tin is pretty cute and I’ve got some projects in mind for as soon as my candle is gone, which won’t be very soon, based on how many hours this guy can burn.  It is meant to promote a peaceful, relaxing state of meditation, creating harmony between your mind and body.
