Most people know BAGGU for their incredibly versatile resuable nylon and mesh bags. Whether for groceries or laundry, these bags are the bomb!
What most women don’t know is that BAGGU also makes gorgeous leather bags, too. From spacious totes to trendy bucket and circle styles, we are seriously impressed. The leather is crazy soft and smooth and these bags hold up to everyday use better than bags twice their price.
To prove how amazing BAGGU’s leather options are, we had three SHEfinds editors put them to the test. Get the scoop below:
The Working Mom:
In my fantasy life, I can walk out the house carrying only a small crossbody bag that weighs no more than five pounds. My real life, though? I’m always lugging around a massive bag stocked to the brim with solutions for any and every unexpected emergency. Band-aids, snacks, water, toys… and that’s just the stuff I need for my little one. Add to that my daily necessities and you can imagine why I can’t get enough of BAGGU’s Oversize Tote. Obviously it’s incredibly spacious–I sometimes even use this as an overnight bag!–but what really impresses me is how high-quality the leather is. It is like butter, but doesn’t feel so delicate that I worry I am going to ruin it every time I use it. People often mistake this bag for a crazy pricey designer purse, so it makes me giddy to see their reaction when I reveal it’s actually BAGGU!
The Recent College Grad:
I recently graduated from college and moved to New York City. I love living here, but let’s be honest: it’s not cheap! So when selecting a bag from Baggu, it was important that it was super versatile. Between the limited space in my apartment and my limited budget, choose multi-purpose items is pretty must-have. I’ve been carrying the drawstring purse in caramel and I love it. This bag is the perfect size to store all my daily essentials (wallet, metro card, keys and sunglasses) when I’m headed to work, but it’s also a great going-out option, too. Whether brunching with friends or hanging at a bar on a Saturday, this bag is spacious, but not heavy. Even better, the long crossbody straps means I always have use of both hands. Also, the color is perfect because it’s neutral and goes with just about everything. So many reasons to love this bag, right?!
As a fashion student and intern, I’m almost never in one place. I’m constantly running back and forth between class and my internship, which is why I love the BAGGU Basic Tote. The tote is deep so it fits my laptop, water bottle, notebooks and wallet–basically everything I’m always lugging around. I also love that the strap is sturdy. I can jam pack this bag and even when it’s super heavy, it still sits comfortably on my shoulder. I use this bag for school and work, but it’s also stylish enough to take out after a busy day to meet my friends for dinner and drinks. The leather is crazy soft and durable and no matter how much I stuff in it or toss it around in, it still looks great. This really is the perfect everyday bag.
