George Animal Print Weekend Bag
Advantages: cheap, good pockets, good size, perfect for beach use, love leopard print
Disadvantages: sand everywhere, not really big enough for a weekend bag, outside pocket easily opens
Hi, my name is Amelia and I'm addicted to leopard print. It feels good to get that out!
As soon as I saw this 'animal' print bag I knew I would end up buying it. I was actually looking for a holiday bag anyway, something I could take to the airport and use at the beach. It seemed to fit the bill and also was nice enough that I might be able to use it for other things too.
I found it really good for carrying the things I needed in the airport on my most recent holiday and I have also found it great for using on the beach. A slight issue that arose was that it has a load of nooks and crannies in which sand can easily get and survive for a while. The bag is also described as a weekend bag but personally I think it is probably a little small for this kind of use. However, for what I bought it for it is fine. I have also found it useful for taking my books and folders to Uni and back, this is a nice unexpected usage which is really handy for me.
The bag has a leopard style print all over it but with a nice colourful twist. Some of the spots are a greeny/turquoisy colour which adds a cool playful edge to an otherwise quite tame bag. The bag also has a tan coloured trim in a faux leather fabric. I personally think this looks a little cheap but for a back that was inexpensive you probably can't expect any more! The handles on the bag do feel pretty sturdy and I haven't had any problems with them. They are long enough for over the shoulder use but also sit comfortably on your lower arm.
There is a long pocket on the front of the back which is pretty handy for all those belongings you need to reach quickly. I have used it for my phone though I do worry a little because it does up in the middle with a single popper and probably isn't super safe. I would avoid putting things in here if you are using it in a busy or dangerous area. Otherwise there are no issues. In the bag there are also a phone pocket and a zip pocket. I don't tend to put my phone in this pocket because I like putting it in the outer one and I find it hard to get out of this one when in a rush. The zip pocket is good for keeping small change and other important belongings. Everything else goes in the main body of the bag and is easy to reach.
The bag costs £9 from Asda which is relatively cheap for such a big bag. I would definitely say it is good value for money, though if you plan to use it for a weekend bag then you need to pack lightly!
Overall, a nice bag which indulges my love of leopard print.
Summary: A nice bag, perfect for the beach
