Product test: Vacation with Courier Bag in England
Recently my family took a 10 day trip to England and Ireland. Packing was challenging – especially with two young sons who initially lined up a cadre of stuff animals to put in their luggage. Each item had to have multiple uses – I told everyone.
That is why I chose to take my Courier Bag as my carry on and leisure travel bag. I knew I would need more space than my small tote that I carried everyday as my summer purse. I also suspected that I needed as much hands-free capability as possible and needed carrying capacity of a medium sized tote. Anything bigger would have been too cumbersome.
I am pleased to report that my Courier Bag was a great travel accessory and served me well. I appreciated the magnetic snap closure that kept belongings safe but the bag of roasted peanuts was still accessible by one hand when the boys spontaneously decided to feed dozens of pigeons at Picaddilly Circus.
The adjustable, cotton, crossbody strap was comfortable and versatile. When carrying lighter items, I wore the bag higher but was able to adjust the strap to accommodate the bulk of folded raincoats and tourist maps when needed.
And, finally the water resistance of used sails was the best! It rained a lot in England and I never worried about the contents getting wet or ruined. If you are considering a Maine made sail bag, I strongly recommend the Courier Bags.
