Our family spends a lot of time on the go, and we especially love going to the beach, the pool or spending time at the local YMCA. This means that we always need to have a bag ready to go, and with four kids that bag needs to fit certain criteria. After searching high and low, in store and online, we finally found the perfect family bag at Balboa Baby.
Our old gym bag could not handle the move from three kids to four, as it started ripping due to us overloading it. It took a lot of research to find the right bag for us, because not only did it need to have the right size, but it also needed to fit our criteria such as comfortable carry straps and being washable.
Balboa Baby is actually a company, which we are very familiar with, since we already own the Balboa Shopping Cart Cover and the Balboa Stroller Liner. We love both of these products, and from our experience we knew that Balboa means great quality and products that can stand up to lots of wear and cleaning.
The Balboa Duffle Bag really sold me on the fact that it is very roomy. Seriously this duffle bag is 20” x 12” x 10 1/2” and it hold everything that we used to have in two gym bags.
It has three outside pockets as well as two pockets on the inside with zippers. The inside pockets are great for all of the essentials such as keys, wallet, camera, phone and such.
The Balboa Duffle Bags come in several different designs including blue plaid, black camellia, pink camellia, lime poppy, retro, retro flower and a red poppy design. Picking a design was actually quite difficult, because all of the designs are beautiful. The practical mom in me wanted to choose the black camellia, the mom of a baby girl in me wanted to choose the pink camellia, and the mom of three boys in me almost chose the blue plaid. In the end, I decided to go with the retro flower design, since it was simply my favorite, but also because it was perfect for spring and summer.
I was a bit concerned about the light color, but since we have washed our Balboa shopping cart cover and stroller liner many times and these still look like new, I decided to go for it.
