When I began traveling, I have learned to look for travel gears that satisfy my needs. I was no longer that conscious about the name of the brand, be it a gadget I use in documenting my travels or a dry bag where I put my belongings when out in the waters. When it comes to bag packs, I have opted for those that are of simpler looks, economical and highly functional.
One day, when I was just randomly browsing through my social media, I discovered Columbus Bags. A quick scan of its Instagram account gave me the impression that the makers of this Marikina-produced bags were serious in delivering quality yet affordable travel companions. It immediately caught my interest for several reasons I bet most of you would all agree to. So when I was able to finally use my very own Columbus Bag, I had gladly ticked off all the things I listed below.
That was how I would describe my Keith Rucksack upon seeing it in photo. But when I was finally able to use it, its simple exterior greatly compliments how it was made. The inside was quite spacious, there were a couple of side pockets and a laptop compartment inside too. A zipped compartment was hidden beneath the outside flap secured with adjustable straps. I first thought that this bag was on the small side basing on its picture. But in my experience, it can fit two to three days worth of clothing – just right for a weekend getaway with enough room for other necessities. The bag may be compact but it proved to be sturdy as well. I had no issues when I stuffed it with my heavy gadgets during one of my summer escapades.
I have always took pride in supporting local businesses. Not only it is cheap, it’s the quality of the product that made me decide so. Columbus Bags Ph are handmade bags from a Marikina clan already in the shoe and bag making industry. Economical
For such a nice bag, I find its price quite affordable.
