{Review} Apera Bags and a Giveaway!

When you’re on the go all the time and you carry *stuff* with you, you need a great bag. I always have my laptop, my iPad, some sort of paperwork, and if I’m lucky, my running or hot yoga stuff. I needed a bag that will carry all of the things. ALL of them.

So, when I came across Apera Bags, I was sold. Color choices, plenty of room for all the things, and many separate compartments for the smelly stuff. Because let’s face it, when you run or do hot yoga, your clothes and shoes will stink. And I don’t want stinky stuff contaminating whatever else it is I’m carrying with me.

Before I show you the super pictures of my fabulous backpack, I first want to tell you several pieces of important information….

  • First, Apera Bags is having an anniversary sale and offering 20% OFF through July 31st!
  • Second, all BLUE bags are 40% OFF!
  • Third, all duffel packs are 40% OFF!
  • Fourth, if you sign up for their newsletter, you have a chance to win a Sprint Pack!
  • And fifth, at the end of this post, I will have a chance for you to WIN a Sprint Pack!


I know, there is so much awesomeness in this post! So let’s get on with it….

Here are pictures of my super fabulous Active Pack, which I have in fuschia.

This bag is super spacious and holds so much. You can put a water bottle on each side pocket and it also comes with a separate bag to put a pair of shoes in to keep them separate from everything else, AND it’s washable!

There is plenty of room for a laptop, paperwork, as well as your workout clothes, towel and shoes for after work. It would also be a great weekend bag for a quick getaway. I also love the cushioned straps.

What makes this bag special? It has antimicrobial product protection which works continuously, 24/7, to help prevent the growth of bacterial odors on the bag. Stinky socks or clothes from a tough workout? No worries!

They have several bag styles available, so you have many choices depending on what you will use it for and what kind of back you like.

And now, you have a chance to win an Apera Bags Sprint Pack like this one… Perfect for the gym or beach!



You have several ways to enter! Best of luck!

  4. I absolutely love my Apera bag. But be careful not to leave anything perishable in one of those several pockets. I found some leftovers just the other day in my side pocket that was really old. lol

    I love back packs!!!! With three active kids and always being on the go-go-go, hands free is the best for me. I would love a bag that I could throw stinky stuff in! Lol :)
