Apera Bags Review and Giveaway

I was recently contacted by Stacy at Apera bags and to our delight we discovered that I live very close to a lot of her family in Montana.  In fact I went to the same high school as some of her cousins.  Small world!

What's the deal with Apera bags?  What makes them so unique and great?
They are designed to be healthier, with built in antimicrobial protection, linings that are wipeable and venting to keep your bag and belonging dry and free from odors.

I confess I haven't really had a new gym bag in a while a) I don't belong to a gym b)it hasn't been a top priority.  I have been using this bag that I got in high school when I go to races or travel, it also used to serve as my gym bag. It's been through a couple of relays.
ugly and boring

Meet my new travel, race and relay bag the Apera Performance Duffel bag
  • There are 9 zippers on this bag.  9!  Lots of pockets to stay organized!
  • Two great pockets on the front of the bag for your water bottles to keep you hydrated
  • Comes with a small zippered bag to put wet things in to keep the rest of your things dry and clean.

  • Antimicrobial protection
  • Large pocket on the back great for putting the small zippered bag full of wet, or stinky things into.  or anything you want really, it's a big pocket!

  • Water resistant base if I set it in something wet, the contents stay dry.
  • Two vented compartments, one on each end of the bag that are great for storing shoes to keep the rest of your things clean and dirt free.
  • Several padded pockets great for my iPad, iPhone, camera, sunglasses etc.  Keys would be great here too so you can find them easily.
This easily will become my new travel and race bag.  No more digging around trying to find things. Check out all the pockets on the roomy inside!  The bag opens wide so you can find things easily. 
this is with a pair of shoes on each end.
In case you were curious about it
