Lo and Sons OG Review

Remember when I reviewed the Lo and Sons Pearl and said I was definitely going to end up with all the bags at some point, because they're perfect and I am addicted to bags? I got another one, and I am even more heart eyes/praise hands emojis over it, cause it's a tote bag.  And I got it secondhand (in like new condition) for 70 percent off. I'll admit, I didn't neeeeed another tote bag, but look at it! It's perfect!

Why I Love It

Size // Somehow, this bag holds e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g and looks good doing it. I don't know if it's the shape or the (14!) pockets, but it holds more than my Dagne Dover AND is way more comfortable to carry. The handle drop is perfect, though I imagine if you are more petite than me (5'6") it might look a little ridiculously large.

Travel Flexibility // As I mentioned above, my camera fits in there, which makes me crazy happy, but more than that, the bag is designed, at least in part, for air travel. One side of the bag zips open to make a little slit that roller bag handles can fit in, which is the coolest. Also, the outside pocket has spots that perfectly fit a passport and a phone, which makes navigating an airport way easier for me.

Functionality // Pockets are one of my love languages. I like to have places to put things.  And if those places are plentiful and sized perfectly, all the better. Among my favorite pockets is the one in the middle, which is where I stick my gym outfit or wet umbrella or something else undesirable. And the pocket rolls up and tucks out of sight when not in use. Also, padded laptop sleeves are the bomb.

Why I Don't

Material // This is more of a love/hate thing, but the bag is nylon (handles are leather).  While I love the wipeable/indestructible aspect of that, it doesn't look quite as professional/fancy as a leather bag. Again, not a deal breaker, but it's worth noting, depending on your situation.

The OG is available here, as well as it's baby sister, the OMG and all the other gorgeous Lo and Sons bags - they do have periodic sales if you're a more patient person than I am (though there are a few things up to 40% off until 8/1).

  1. I've been eyeing these bags for a while but the fabric is what has me hesitating! That being said, I bet it makes it a lot lighter overall, which would be a really good thing given how heavy my work bag can get on work trips...
