Apera Bags review & giveaway

I’m a fitness-runner-yogi-traveling mother on the go.  And that means I need a bag to carry it all: a pair of capris, running shoes, yoga mat, water bottle, diapers, wipes, wubanub, you name it.  A bag that carries e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. isn’t so easy to find.  I love my Marc Jacobs diaper bag, but a Marc Jacobs diaper bag isn’t always for the yoga studio-gym-airplane-trunk of my car days.  So, after months of searching and eyeing the Yoga Tote from Apera, I was thrilled when they sent me a tote to test out and review.


yogaThe Yoga Tote is perfect for my yoga studio-long walk-business meeting-traveling to San Francisco-diaper bag days.  Seriously, I love it. I knew I’d love it for yoga, after all it’s appropriately named the Yoga Tote –but I didn’t realize how much I’d love it for everything else.  For life.   LJ and I go to Mommy & Me yoga at least once/week.  This bag is great for stashing all of my yoga essentials, plus everything I need for the little guy.  However, I was pleasantly surprised with its versatility.  A few weeks ago I had a business meeting that ended with a run; I needed my laptop and notebook, plus all of my winter running gear.  And just last week, I used the Yoga tote for our cross-country trip to San Francisco; it worked as my purse and LJ’s diaper bag.  While the Yoga tote is great for, well, yoga, it’s also really great for other things, too.  Like, travel, life, gym, yoga, laptop bag, work tote, diaper bag, and more. Here’s what else I love.  Apera bags are design to be healthier – with built-in antimicrobial product protection to inhibit the growth of bacterial odors, separation of your wet, sweaty gear from your dry stuff, and venting air to keep your bag dry and suppress odor.  (I wonder if it works for diapers, too?!)

  • Antimicrobial Product Protection
  • Vented Compartments
  • Wipeable Linings
  • Washable Insert

At $120 the Yoga Tote may seem a little pricey – but it’s totally worth the price.  It’s versatile.  You can use the bag for anything (reference above if you need more information or convincing).  And it’s really stylish and cute (plus I’m a sucker for the fuchsia).

Do you want one?!
