{Cool for School} Chico Bags


It's always good to have an assortment of reusable bags on hand, I keep a few in my vehicle, in my diaper bag, and clipped onto my stroller so that I will have one handy even when I didn't intend on needing one when I left the house. They can be used for everything from shopping to school books and the best part is that they stay out of the landfills.

For this review I received the DayPack20 rePETe™ from Chico Bags, which is one of the many styles of bags that they have available. It has a lycra pocket on each side which can hold a water bottle, and also two smaller pockets that can hold pens or other small items. The opening on the top is unlike any other bag I have seen and even though it doesn't fasten closed, the weight of the bags contents against your shoulders keep it from opening. It has adjustable shoulder straps and even a loop near the top which could possibly be used to clip your keys onto. The bag folds into itself and becomes very compact, easy to tuck out of the way where ever you like and has a metal clip so that you can attach it to anything you want (like your stroller).

The DayPack20 rePETe™ is the first product in our line of elite, pouch-able, lifestyle packs. The DayPack20 rePETe™ is an advanced, ultra-lightweight backpack made of durable, recycled PET ripstop fabric and is designed for the adventurer in us all. The DayPack20 easily stuffs into an integrated zip pouch, which turns into a hidden pocket when the DayPack is opened into its full size. With adjustable straps, flexible lycra bottle pockets and a unique closure system, this compact backpack is perfect to throw in your suit case or under your bike seat. The DayPack20 has a new sternum strap accessory (sold separately) for added support and stabilization.
Like all ChicoBag™ brand rePETe™ products, the DayPack20 rePETe™ is made of recycled content. This industry-leading DayPack is produced of 95% recycled content and lists the recycled materials used in production on the backside of the pouch. This lightweight DayPack is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, urban shoppers committed to the environment, and those of us dedicated to commuting by bicycle and reducing our carbon footprint.
I love the assortment of colors and styles that are available from Chico Bag. I also own one of their Messenger Bags, and while I prefer the Messenger over the DayPack they are both of excellent quality. They are machine washable, durable enough for a heavy load and look great too. They even have super cute, limited edition Halloween bags available right now or you can request custom made bags too!
