Time to get out and enjoy the warmer weather.
After a long winter, spring is at its peak: flowers are blooming, trees are budding and the squirrels and birds are busy at work. With nature coming alive, it’s only normal that you, too, would feel the need to soak up the sun, breathe in some fresh air and recharge your batteries. It’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy your favourite springtime activities, with just the right bag to hold everything you need.
After months of being cooped up inside, you may feel you could use a reminder or two on how to enjoy the spring. Not only that, but social distancing measures also mean fewer activities to choose from. Still, there are lots of things you can do solo or with those you live with to make the most of spring with the right bags.
All you need is one good idea and the right bags to carry whatever you need, and you’re ready to practice a few activities! Here are five seasonal activities along with five bags that will keep you going, rain or shine:
1- RFID sling bag for strolling around public places
Taking a walk in a public place is a fine activity on a beautiful day. Perhaps you live near a farmer’s market, port, downtown area, historical district or boardwalk. Of course, such popular places are apt to draw large crowds. A bag with built-in RFID protection can help safeguard your personal data from lurking thieves, effectively blocking data from being intercepted without you noticing. It’s the best invisible shield and offers total peace of mind when you’re out and about in the city this spring.
The crossbody sling bag gives you a cool, casual look with the convenience of a traditional two-strap bag. With plenty of support for all your essentials (which can sometimes crowd a small purse), it’s a great alternative to a more standard backpack. The perfect choice for roaming around town.
2- Mini backpack for a day of shopping
Something else that’s fun to do in spring is window shopping in trendy neighbourhoods. Stash all of your essentials—masks, hand sanitizer, water bottle, sunglasses—in a mini backpack. With your hands free, you can focus on the latest fashions in your favourite boutiques.
3- Boho bag for a day in the park with the family
Going to the park inevitably involves carting a bunch of equipment. That means finding a big enough bag to fit the blanket you’ll want to sit on plus everything else you need to make your day enjoyable.
Snacks, water bottles and other refreshments are a must to stay hydrated and energized during your time outdoors. Don’t forget your hat, sunscreen and sunglasses to protect yourself from the rays.
The boho bag makes it easy to carry all these items and ensure that everyone has what they need to have fun at the park.
4- Fanny pack for recreational activities
Whether you’re heading out for tennis, yoga in the park, a bike ride or a walk in the forest, the fanny pack is a practical, lightweight option for keeping your essentials within easy reach: mobile phone, trail map, bug spray, sunscreen and more.
Simply adjust the strap to your waist, and off you go. Tighten it for more physical activities and loosen it for an easy hike in the woods: you choose. Some bags even have insulated pockets to keep your EpiPens secure.
5- Duffle bag for soccer practice
Team sports are a great way to enjoy the fresh new grass and other summer surfaces. Some require more equipment than others: soccer, badminton, tennis and flag football, for example, all require at least a ball and/or other paraphernalia.
Duffle bags are ideal when you want a single bag for all your necessities. They’re the most durable, effective and practical bags for practicing spring activities.
So go out and enjoy these beautiful spring days to the fullest, being sure to comply with public health measures and sporting the right bag for the right activity.
