Green Guru Gear Messenger Bag: Made in America Spotlight


I’m so excited to share my very first messenger bag! I received a Billa  Recycled Banner Messenger Bag from Green Guru Gear to check out! I got it hoping that I’d have a laptop at some point!

Guru LogoAs part of the Made in America event, this fit SO perfectly! Not only is it made here, check out what it’s made from:

Billboard Vinyl, 100% Recycled PETE Fabric from Post Consumer Beverage Bottles, Bicycle Inner Tube, Nylon Hardware

IMG_3033Here’s a little bit about Green Guru Gear

We started Green Guru because we love the great outdoors. We like to play and we play hard. Our adventures take us to amazing destinations. We noticed that the gear we play with had a negative impact on the environment we enjoy so much. We also saw an opportunity to make real, positive change within the industries and activities we love.”

IMG_3034Check out their About page, because they go into a lot more detail about their company.

Now, about MY awesome Billa Bag. I love using it. This may sound corny, but my favorite part of this bag…the strap. It’s SO wide it doesn’t cut into my shoulder when I wear it, even when it’s packed full of “stuff”.

IMG_3042We took it to the Twins game and since I didn’t have a laptop yet, I used it for ALL the essentials we needed for the game.

IMG_3046It has pockets on the inside for all the extras you need for any you’ll need. The side pockets I put my suntan lotion in one and my keys in the other. When you open the flap there are a couple of pockets on the front. I put my ID and cash in the small zipper one and the bigger one right behind it I put our Twins tickets.

IMG_3038There’s a large velcro pocket on the back of the bag where I put the program and various papers we were handed at the game. I also kept putting my phone in there cuz it was such easy access.

The large center pocket…oh man, it held so much of our stuff. I had a water bottle, shirts, books, and snacks all stuffed in there. hahahaha It definitely has taken a lickin’ with all the running around we’ve been doing.

Be sure to check out Green Guru Gear and all their awesome American made products. Check them out on Twitter and Facebook as well.

Green Guru Gear will be giving away a Billa Bag in the Made in America event starting July 4th.

I love all the pockets! Sometimes pocket placement is the deciding factor for me in purchasing or not!
