Lug Hopscotch Tote Review
Lug’s mantra is to “live life in colour” and boy, do they ever!
My Lug Hopscotch Tote is fantastic shade of plum purple. It is absolutely gorgeous.
This wonderful tote comes in a variety of other stunning colours, nine in total!
The Hopscotch Tote is the *must have* accessory for Fall.
One of the best features of this tote is the soft-lined cell phone/eye glasses pocket on the front of the bag. When carrying the bag on your shoulder you have quick access to your phone when you need to answer that all important call from your boss or your child’s school.
Other features include a top front zip pocket which is also somewhat padded and can be used to hold your iPad or tablet. I used it to hold my e-reader as I do not own a tablet… yet! The middle front zip pocket includes a D-ring (for your keys, etc.), two pen holders, and an accessory pocket. The lower front pocket has a magnetic closure.
There are so many storage options and that is just on the front of the bag!
Inside the Hopscotch tote you will find a huge main storage area along with two zip pockets and two cargo pockets.
On the back of the bag there is a luggage strap that easily slides onto a standard suitcase handle. I had seen the strap there but had wondered what it was for. Such a nifty and unique idea! This will make travelling with more luggage easier for the person who is always on the go.
The tote also includes a wipeable bottom. Perfect for a germaphobe such as myself.
And the material used in making the entire bag is specially treated with a water-repellant finish.
The Hopscotch Tote came into my life at the perfect moment. I was getting tired of hauling around my oversized and hefty diaper bag. The Hopscotch is definitely an awesome replacement.
I have been sporting my Lug Hopscotch Tote for the past few weeks and love how easy it is to carry. It is so lightweight that my shoulder does not ache after “toting” it around.
The bag is also the ideal size for me. I can carry all of my essentials – wallet, cell phone, pocket calendar, e-reader, change of clothes for toddler, diapers/wipes for toddler, and snacks for the kids – quite easily. Each of my essentials has it own perfect spot and can be easily accessed in a pinch.
The one thing I found this bag lacking was a place for a water bottle or cup. As I try to drink a lot of water throughout the day, I found it strange that I had no place to put it in the bag. Plus, I frequently carry around a sippy cup for my toddler in case he happens to get thirsty. So, it would be great to have a holder for that as well. If Lug ever decides to “tweak” the design of this bag, I hope they include this as an option in the future.
Even if you aren’t a busy mom on the go, this bag can help you organize your life.
I may use it as a diaper bag for now, but later it will be a great accessory for my future work wardrobe. Or a perfect substitute for a backpack if I decide to go to school again in the future. Or my kids can take it with them for a quick over night stay at their grandparents house.
The possibilities are endless.
