Apera Bags: Review and Giveaway

Disclaimer: The following post is a product review of the Yoga Tote provided by Apera Bags.  I was not provided with additional compensation for this post.  As always, all opinions are my own.

The past few years, I took the perks of working out of my home for granted.  I was often able to go for a run during my lunch and I had the luxury of having all my gear and a shower at my fingertips.  Since November, I am back working in an office again.  And, if I want to maximize those daylight hours and go for a run straight from work, I have to lug all of my workout gear with me.  Enter awkward looks from co-works as I drag a plastic bag or on good days, a recyclable bag, filled with workout gear and sneakers in to the office.

Honestly, since life is a bit more hectic with this work change, it never really dawned on me to look for a gym bag to bring to work.  When Apera offered to send me a bag to review, I honestly questioned its utility.  But, after using it for a few weeks, I have to admit that it has been so nice to have all my gear organized in a beautiful antimicrobial tote.  My supervisor even commented on how much she liked my new tote.  It has more than enough space to carry all of my winter gear and even has a separate compartment for my dirty sneakers.  Plus, the straps on the yoga bag are wide enough for a yoga mat or a foam roller.  Talk about multi-purpose use!
