Minibreak Mummy loves: Healthy Back Bags
I’m a huge fan of Healthy Back Bags, for the following reasons:
- they are really comfy to carry – as you would expect from the name, these bags are designed to spread the load and reduce the strain on your back. My shoulders are thanking me too! I’ve actually given most of my conventional shoulder bags away because they just feel too heavy and uncomfortable to lug around now that I’ve got used to using Healthy Back Bags
- there are lots of pockets and compartments inside and out – so that there is a place for everything and everything has a place
- they come in a range of attractive designs – I actually have four of these bags now, because I love the range of colours and styles
The four bags I have are (left to right in order of purchase):
1. Cotton canvas, sand, small
This was my first Healthy Back Bag, purchased a few years ago and used frequently ever since. It even got pressed into service as a changing bag and portable nursing pillow when my son was a baby. (This design is no longer in the current range.)
This is the bag I use every day for work. For a ‘medium’ bag it can carry an incredible amount of stuff – my ‘What’s in your handbag‘ post included a photo of everything that I was carrying in this bag on 16th August this year. And the picture on the right shows the interior of this bag earlier this week. I can even fit an A5 notepad inside and stash my Kindle, in a case, in the external flap pocket.
This is feather-light and really great for weekend use. I love the colour, which is a gorgeous rich red with a hint of pink.
4. Boho, Teal, small
This bag is made of synthetic leather with a patterned strap based on a 1960s guitar strap. (No longer in the current range)
Disclosure statement: all of these bags were purchased by me for my own use. This blogpost contains links to the Healthy Back Bag website in case readers wish to purchase a bag for themselves, but I have not received any payment for writing the blogpost or including the links.
