Net Effects Bag is so much more than just a bag.

As a mom, I need functionality.  When I shop, I look for items that not only look good and serve the purpose of what I am looking for, but also for the fact of making my life easier.  I can add an additional awesome quality to shopping now.  when shopping with net effects traders, you are also helping to make a positive change in the life of Cambodians.  

I was recently sent a bag for review from net effect and I fell in love with the color as soon as I opened the packaging. It is a beautiful green color, with the front zipper standing out in an accent color of bright orange.  I will admit that it takes a bit getting used to the feel of the bag, since it is made out of netting.  I like the bag for a messenger bag for me, but I don't think I will be using it as a laptop bag like I originally planned.  My laptop is a bit too large to zip up, but more importantly, with a child under 1 and a very rough and active 7 year old, I would want my laptop bag to have more padding for security.  With me not wanting to make more trips that necessary, I try to carry it all in one go. That and a 7 year old that thinks he is The Incredible Hulk, he wants to help me carry as much as possible too.  (Again, more padding needed, for us.)

The bag I was sent is called BROOKLYN.     Again, I love it!  It will be my "purse" soon.  I fell in love with carrying a messenger type bag versus a traditional pocketbook ages ago, so this is totally my style!!!    The cross body strap allows me to carry this bag with ease, while also carrying the 8 million other items I need daily!   There are open pockets inside for whatever treasures my son gives me through the day, but also a nice size zippered pocket as well.  

Once you zip the top, there is an additional pocket under the flap before you snap it closed.  
Once you have fastened it all closed, there is yet another smaller pocket (remember  the orange zipper?) on the outside top flap.  With all the compartments, I would like to say it will keep me more organized, we shall see how that works!!!!   

They have sleek looking blacks and browns, but also other exciting colors as well.  I went with green, but I have seen yellow, reds and pinks on their website.  Do you use messenger type bags?   What color would you wear as your bag?  This would make a great bag to not only look nice but make a statement as well for a kid you know heading off to school!  


  1. I like that it's breathable. It would make a great back to school item, you're right!

  2. That looks handy. I love messenger style bags. This is a pretty color to.
