Loving my Apera bag.... Giveaway!

Disclosure: Apera provided me with this bag. All opinions are my own.

Have you ever heard of Apera Bags?  I hadn't until one day I saw a giveaway for one on a friend's blog.  I have been in desperate need of a gym bag for quite a bit. I contacted the company and told them that I would love to try the bag and write a review if I like it. They agreed and sent me this beautiful bag! I have used it for everything.  I am currently in the process of moving, and I use it all the time to take items from one house to another.  It is the best bag ever! 

From Apera:
Isn't it Ironic?

You're inspired to live a healthy and active lifestyle. You exercise. You pay attention to what you eat. Ultimately, you strive to take care of yourself.  However, something is missing. Something important.

How many times have you looked at your bag and realized: this thing is LOUSY.
It's made with cheap materials. It's coming apart at the seams. It doesn't have any organization for your stuff. And, worst of all, it stinks. 

Well, you're not alone. Apera has been watching. And they're inspired to do something about it.

Their bags inspire your healthy and active lifestyle.  
Apera bags don't stink. Literally. Groundbreaking antimicrobial product protection, inside and out, resists bacterial odor. Their innovative vented compartments allow your bag to breathe, while clever wipeable linings make for easy cleaning. How's that for a refreshing approach to your bag? And Apera's intelligent storage make them extremely functional. Your shoes, electronics, and wet or dry gear are kept separate and organized. And the amount of stuff you can carry is unbelievable. Really, you have to see it to believe it.
Truly, Apera bags inspire your healthy, active lifestyle.

Consumers Are Raving

"After spending countless hours (read: days) trying to find the perfect gym bag - I stumbled upon Apera a few months ago. In this bag they have really thought of everything I didn't know I wanted but now couldn't live without.  After using this bag for a while, I was in an athletic store and was looking at the standard sports-branded gym bags - the quality just doesn't come close.  I think  is stuck with me for good!" ES NYC

    I no longer really need a gym bag because we have a home gym but these would be perfect for travel where I could keep my books, water bottle, phone, keys, etc. in. Never heard of this company before, off to look at the site.
