I was lucky enough to spen the last week trying out my new Go!Sac. Go! Sacs are lightweight bags that you can use to carry any number of items with you when you are on the go. They have four varieties: (a) backpack, (b) duffle bag, (c) tote bag, and (d) carryall. I selected an orange duffle bag to use for hauling my yoga gear around in. I really needed something to use for carrying my yoga clothes, hydroflask, and regular street clothes in. The bag I had been using prior to this was fine, but not the best choice for what I needed to accomplish.
First, let’s talk about the size of the bag. I was looking forward to getting my bag because the website shows how the bags can be folded up into small pouches for easy storage. Would it really be that simple? I had my concerns. I am, after all, a person who cannot handle using saran wrap. I cannot be trusted to open a box of food correctly. I recently spent several minutes trying to open a cooler (didn’t succeed) which proved to be a high level of entertainment for the onlooker.
So what I’m saying is, I’m not good with opening things, and I thought the liklihood of me being able to open up my bag and then get it to refold itself back into the shape it came in were slim to none.
But the bag, it is totally simple to open up to its full size and just as simple to get it back to small pouch size like you see on the site. I did the whole thing on the first try. Which means you will find it easy. Plus, the fact that it unfolds into a bagd and then refolds into a small pouch is just super cool. It does make for easy storage.
Next, how did the bag work in real life? Well, it is light weight just like they say it is. But I didn’t let that stop me from stuffing it full of everything. On a given day, I would stuff it with street clothes, a towel, toiletries, and a full hydroflask. Sometimes, I threw in a jacket and a pair of tennis shoes or boots. I seriously loaded this bag down day after day.
And you know what? It performs great. The material is sturdy. It’s not going to tear. The bags are easy to get stuff in and out of and they store very easily. They also come in a number of colors. I like my orange. It’s nice and bright and, honestly, puts me in a good mood.
So….don’t you want to win one of these fabulous bags? Of course you do! Here’s the scoop on how to win one:
