I love having a bag hanging near the door that I can grab whenever I need to carry something extra like library books or a few snacks and drinks. But it can be hard to find a good multipurpose bag for general family use. Backpacks are too bulky, purses are too small, and messenger bags can’t stand up to the wear and tear of a child. Recently, my fellow Canadian blogger Olfa from Our Family World introduced a line of bags that looked perfect for my needs and I was delighted when I was given the chance to review one of them for myself.
These sling backpacks are a wonderful choice for multipurpose use because they’re comfortable to wear, have a reasonable capacity and are durable enough to hold up to regular use while still looking sleek. I chose the Racer Urban Sling Backpack to review and at just sixteen inches high with a lightweight triangular design, it was just the right size for all the general uses I had planned for it.
One of the reasons I was most excited to receive this bag is because it was such a perfect size for holding the few groceries I run out to buy every few days. I generally ride my bike to the local store and so using a regular reusable grocery bag for my purchases doesn’t work very well. The sling bag was the perfect solution since I could clip it over my body and carry my purchases back comfortably on my back.
Zackary experienced the same benefits when biking to the library. He just recently started going to the library himself to choose books and while he doesn’t mind walking there, he far prefers riding his bike. The Racer Urban Sling Backpack lets him carry books to and from the library without having to struggle with a regular bag or be weighed down excessively with a big backpack.
Best of all, the purchase of a sling bag promotes social good too! Two dollars from the purchase of every bag is donated to organizations that help children and families in need. And every bag comes with a special gift: children’s gummy vitamin samples from IronKids for Canada sales and Dole Foods samples with bags shipped to the United States!
