I want to thank Portagio Bags for not only allowing us to review this item but also offering one of our lovely readers the chance to win one in our Mommy & Me Birthday Bash event as well!
Portagio Bags offers stylish nylon bags with leather trim. Easy to clean but fashionable and fierce at the same time. For the on the go lady, this bag can hold so much! The Smart Satchel comes in four colors: Egg plant, Bronze, Black, and Cinnamon.
As a Mom who nearly always takes a diaper bag, having a smaller bag that is still functional to carry essentials, is great for quick trips or outing on my own. I am easily able to put my tablet, wallet, a cloth diaper, wipes, snack container, and check book in here with room to spare. The functionality is great with an assortment of different sized pockets, a clip that can hold my keys or a pacifier (always thinking like a Mom!), and if I want to ditch the bulky wallet, I can slide my cards in to the credit card slots within the purse.
5 exterior pockets – 1 zippered for security
Snap closure padded pouch fits tablets up to 10″L
7 card sleeves for insurance, ID and credit cards
1 interior zippered security compartment
1 inside slide pocket
water and stain resistant bonded nylon
full grain leather trim and handles
patterned nylon interior lining
durable light gold hardware
leather key fob
I really like the fact that you get a shoulder strap as well. There are many times I do not want to carry a purse right under my armpits and would rather opt to not carry at all. The ability to put a shoulder strap on to lengthen the purse or even throw over as a cross over bag makes it even more functional for the busy lady on the go.
Check out this great video to show you just how much you can really stuff in this bad boy! This bag is ideal for vacations where you want to take a purse on an airplane along with your carry on, get the most space possible with a Smart Satchel!
