Build Your Own Tote Bag with ANDI Bag

The ANDI Bag is a stylish new tote that brings fashion and function together. I was able to build my own custom ANDI Bag for review. They have several colors to choose from. Customize the body of the bag, the straps, the accent, and the hardware to your liking. Be as conservative or funky as you want to be to match your unique personality!

My Custom ANDI Bag

After building my own ANDI Bag online, it didn’t take long for it to arrive. It showed up in a tiny box and I thought maybe I got the wrong bag. Nope! That’s just how nicely it can be folded up. It opens into a very large and spacious tote. There are many features that make this bag perfect for anyone’s active lifestyle. Here are a few of them:

  • Folds up into its own pouch pocket:  Like pictured above. Don’t worry, there are instructions on how to refold it back into that, too!
  • Made of 100% waterproof material:  Great for on the go. If you get stuck in the weather, your ANDI will be just fine.
  • Machine washable:  Extra convenient for me since I chose white.
  • Many strap options:  Carry like a traditional tote or use the included, detachable cross-body strap to carry it like a backpack.
  • Travels well:  There is a luggage strap to easily attach your ANDI Bag to your carry on.
  • Safe keeping:  There is a hidden pocket inside, right under the pouch pocket for cash or other important things. There are other pockets on the inside and outside, as well, for further organization.
  • Temperature control:  That’s right… the front pocket can act as a koozie for your hot or cold beverage!
  • Single strap action:  There’s a snap that can connect the two straps into one, so it stays on your shoulder better.

As you can see this is way more than your average tote bag. Aside from being able to customize it yourself, it’s the ultimate bag for so many activities. I will be using it at BlogHer for sure. The backpack option will save my shoulder from the pain I was in last year. When doing tons of walking and standing, it’s better to have any weight you are carrying more evenly-distributed.

It will also be the perfect beach bag for boating and beach-visiting all summer. Since I can wash it, I am not worried about it getting sandy. It can go straight from fun back to work with me on Monday morning. Perfect!

That's great that it's machine-washable. Somehow my bags always end up getting smudges from frequent use, so a quick wash would be a great perk. I would also appreciate the water-proof material and the ability to make it compact. Thanks for sharing.

This is a really nice tote to take to the beach or on vacation because it will be easy to pack. Also I like that you can build your own tote the way you like it!
