Traveling in Style with a Chico Bohemian Sling #ChicoNGFall

When I go out the door one of the first things I make sure I have (after the kids) is a reusable shopping bag or two. We typically keep all of the bags we have in our trunk but I've found that they start to deplete rather quickly after a few trips to the store.

We may or may not forget to bring the bags back to the trunk.

So when I heard of ChicoBag's Sling I knew I had found the perfect reusable bag to take with me wherever I go.

Staying Green while On-The-Go

The Sling is a simple, messenger-style reusable bag designed to go where you do. Featuring a large, forty-pound carrying capacity and cross-body strap, the Sling is ideal for taking on your bike, hopping on the subway or toting to school.

My Nomad Zigzag Bohemian Sling is not only large enough to carry my haul from Target, it was also essential to have while traveling to, and around, NYC this summer.

Instead of having to pick up bags wherever I went in NYC (including the BlogHer'12 Expo), I simply pulled out my Sling and put it over my shoulder to carry anything I needed. I felt comfortable carrying even the heaviest load because the Sling fit perfectly across my chest allowing my shoulder a bit of rest.

And the size of the bag when expanded was a great help!

Compact and Easy To Use

The best part about this bag is that it starts out compact and then expands to an amazing size! My daughter tried to wear it like a purse but it kept slipping down because it was too big! While traveling it comfortably fit my notebook, sweater, and flip flops (you know... in case I was sick of walking in my shoes and needed a break).

The shell that goes over the bag when in the compact form turns into a pocket on the inside of the bag when the bag is out. That means that anything that would normally get lost in a reusable bag (keys, pens, cell phones, business cards) is safely stored inside the bag in an easily accessible pocket.

Portable and Fashionable

When I wasn't wearing the Sling across my chest, I simply stuffed it back into the pocket and attached it to my purse to carry with me everywhere just in case I needed an extra bag!

The fact that this Sling comes with a hook to snap onto anything makes it very accessible. I am never without it nor do I have an excuse for forgetting it. I just have to fold it back up and into the little bag it comes with and re-attach it to my purse!

No room inside the purse? That's ok! It is super cute and looks great on the outside as well.

This would be the perfect bag to keep in my bike pouch for when I run to the store, or to even keep in a diaper bag. Love the color of yours as well. Thanks for the great review!

This is wonderful I have been trying so hard to switch to reusable shopping bags but always forget to grab them or forget to put them back in the car. This is perfect I can just hook it to the diaper bag (which I never forget! Go me!!)and always have it on hand!!! Brilliant!!

I love that bag especially the color!I know the bags I buy at the store get dirty and worn out so fast. When I first started buying reusable bags I washed them because they were cloth. Huge mistake they lost their shape and were just crap.I had to throw them away.I'd love to own some of these cool bags.I'm hoping I win one. :)

One thing I LOVE about these is the ability to clip it or hang it from my purse. I can't tell you how many times I buy reuseable bags at the store only to forget them at home :-/

I like that it can be hung from a purse or even a beltloop.

Loved your review. I love the "Reusable" bag, this would be a great bag for going shopping, beach or theme park. Take it small, then just fill it up. It's so cute just hanging from your bag like you have it.
