Orange Puddle Jumper

My mom ordered me a couple of bags with her loyalty points and I received them the other day.  One is a super cute gym/overnighter bag in pumpkin orange.  Perfect for this time of year, and a nice colour for spring/summer too.

It even has a cute name: Puddle Jumper.

There are tons of pockets and its quite a good size.  There is also an open to the air mesh pocket for soggy towels/swimsuits.

It's very roomy, with more pockets for water bottle and other stuff on the inside:

It has feet, and a clear plastic protective layer on the bottom (slightly hard to see) so it won't get dirty or soggy:

The whole thing is quilted, and best of all it has perfect length handles:

It also has a shoulder strap which probably isn't necessary as the double handles are sufficiently long.

I don't go to the gym much so am considering using it as a work bag - I'm often lugging laptop and books from one office to another, and the bag I use is sometimes not big enough.  The other option of course would be to plan a weekend trip somewhere ... wouldn't that be nice?

  2. I had to laugh at your last sentence! That's exactly what I would do, use a bag or an outfit as an excuse to go somewhere to do something! The other thing I would do is take it to my husband, stand in front of him open it up and say, "trick or treat" and it had better be a treat!

    1. You could fit a giant treat in this bag, Sheila - or lots of little treats.

  3. What a great colour! I would definitely use it for my laptop! The bag I'm using now doesn't have any pockets. Using it for the laptop during week however, doesn't mean it can't be used on a weekend trip!

    1. Yes, the colour's my favourite part (plus the name). I'm sure this bag will be doing double duty.
