I'm a big fan of things that are quirky and have unique designs, so I'm really excited that I got to do a product review for Golden Eel!
Golden Eel gave me the opportunity to test out one of their eco-conscious Field Bags. I'm a bag/purse fanatic so I was totally tickled to get one to try out that's both useful and funky (in a good way). I chose the khaki colored "I WENT 'GREEN'" field bag that measures 12" W x 16" H x 3.5" D. It's 100% canvas, enzyme washed to give a weathered look, with brass buckles on the front, and an inside pocket for extra storage. (Please don't mind the lines on the bag in the photos. My lighting was weird and that's from the camera. They are no on the actual bag.)
I do have to say that based on the picture on the website I expected the khaki color to be a really like color, however it is a bit darker than what is shown on the website. I'm not complaining by any means! I kind of like the darker color, and the difference is barely noticeable in the photos I took anyway. I also expected the graphic to be a little darker. Never the less I don't think that it takes away from the quality or uniqueness of the product.
On their website they said it makes a great laptop bag, so I threw my giant HP laptop in it to see how it fit. It's technically a little too large (15.5"), but the bag's flap is long enough so it still closed just fine. I think though I may use this bag to tote around my daughter's coloring stuff, or any books/papers I may have when I resume school again. Then again diapers and wipes would fit really nicely and I could look like a "cool" mom when I head to the store and not like an overloaded donkey when I have to carry everything around.
They have so many neat designs on their website! They offer several products including journals, Sigg bottles, hoodies, children's clothing, and dog clothing. These are some of my favorites:
Golden Eel has been very generous and has offered up a Tribal Sugar Skull Field Bag for a giveaway! (Say "thank you" everyone!) The giveaway will run from midnight 01/01/12 to 01/07/12. Also, please make sure you visit them on Facebook!
