Not just a travel bag
October 8, 2017
I bought the Cash and Carry bag five years ago for a trip to Greece. I chose the size to be a tidy way to carry the basics: cell phone, sunglasses, small wallet, keys, small notebook, small camera and pen for starters. Five years later and many travels behind me, I am replacing the back with exactly the same product. As it turned out, I used the bag nearly every day for those years because it is so well designed, lightweight and comfortable. I keep my keys attached to the inside loop, my pen in the special exterior slim pocket, my camera in the deeper front pocket, cell in the slimmer back pocket and the center of the bag holds all the rest. The attached carabiner sometimes carries my baseball style cap or collapsing water bottle. The sturdy strap and compact design are secure from pickpocketers and bag snatchers.
With time the bag faded a bit the way new jeans fade- pleasantly! After five years of daily wear, the grommet that holds the carabiner gave way. So I replaced the bag and handed down the old one to a person who will rehab the missing grommet and give the old bag a spin!
This bag should Never be retired from the Marimekko product line.
