Full of pockets, lockable, featuring RFID-blocking technology, and durable, are Baggallini bags worth buying and bringing on trips?
A few months ago Baggallini reached out to me and asked me to photograph their bags for an upcoming campaign. I brought them along on our trip to Japan and ended up using several of them as we went. Since then, I’ve continued to bring them on trips and when I’ve shared about them on social media, my DMs and comments are full of women singing their praises.
“I’ve had my Baggallini forever and it’s still going strong!” is what I see the most often.
Here’s everything to know before you buy one, including which one I recommend and use the most:
Baggallini Features and Things to Know:
First and foremost, this isn’t a sponsored review. Baggallini did give me bags to photograph, but did not ask me to write this review. I just think they’re cool and worth sharing.
Baggallini straddles the line between style and function without being flashy. For me, the materials are quite casual and not something I would use if I wanted to appear dressed up, but when I’m traveling that’s the opposite of the vibe I want to give off. One of my key safety principles when traveling, particularly alone, is to still express my style but in a non-flashy manner.
That’s what Baggallini, I believe, is going for – function and durability for travel with most of their bags in the $50-$110 range.
Here are some key features:
- Material: 100% Polyester (Nylon)
- Pockets: Almost all of the baggs have LOTS of pockets, and some have extra wallets inside as well.
- Security: The baggs have RFID protection, which prevents scanning credit cards and passport data. Some baggs also have clips for inner wallets so they’re hard for thieves to remove.
- Durability: These are built to last, with scratch resistant materials and metal clasps and closures.
- Colors: Mostly neutral colors, including black, grey, navy, tan, royal blue, and cream.
- Versatility: Many of the baggs can be expanded with zipper expansions, and can be slid onto a suitcase handle via an extra flap on the back.
Which Baggs I Love
Baggallini sent me eight baggs to photograph. Out of all of them, my favorites were the largest and the smallest ones, though the in-betweens could be perfect for you depending on how much you like to bring out with you during the day:
