If going to the beach, pool or park for you means lugging two or three large tote bags crammed full of stuff that you can't easily locate when you need something, cinda b has the answer to your prayers in their fabulous Super Tote II.
Cinda b offers a spectacular Carry-On Rolly as well, with its classy exterior and well-designed interior practically shouting "take me somewhere awesome."
The company provided me with a demo Carry-On Rolly and Super Tote II in their Neptune pattern in return for an honest review. While I generally write about finding the best deals, sometimes it pays to splurge on a fantastic item that adds so much to your life that it's well worth the cost.
Super Tote II
The snazzy Super Tote II, which retails for $111, absolutely blew me away from the minute I started packing stuff into it for an impromptu visit to the pool.
I'm used to throwing a bunch of items into a couple of serviceable tote bags, then having to dig through them when I need something later. With the Super Tote's six large pockets inside, I easily organized sunscreen, juice boxes, water bottles and snacks, leaving the main compartment for my purse, phone and towel. At the time, I didn't even notice the additional slip and zip pockets on the outside of the bag.
This tote is huge - 23" by 7.75" by 15" with a 13" strap drop - but it doesn't feel like you're lugging around a suitcase. It was so easy and comfortable to carry that I didn't notice its size, but I was certainly grateful for its roominess when I packed it full of various items I needed for my family's pool excursion. The strap length is perfect for slinging over my shoulder.
This is the tote bag you can use for every need - beach bag, sundry tote, pool bag, day trip bag or overnight sack. Cinda b also offers a $118 Babe-A-Licious Baby Bag II that measures 15" by 6" by 12.5" and has two exterior and four interior pockets along with a matching changing pad. However, I think the Super Tote II would serve as a fantastic diaper bag that easily transitions to a toddler tote and then mom carry-all.
I can't think of too many women who wouldn't love to have one of these, regardless of age or parent status. You'll be the envy of all of your friends when you carry cinda b's Super Tote II.
Turning to cinda b's Carry-On Rolly ($179 retail), it measures 21" by 11.5" x 12.5" with a 8" handle drop and Signature Big-Mouth Opening. Its interior sports three slip pockets, and the exterior gives you one slip pocket along with one zip pocket.
You'll love taking the Carry-On Rolly on a trip instead of that drab, black pilot roller bag that you may have stashed in a closet somewhere. Big organizer pockets make a huge difference in how easy it is to pack, find and unpack your belongings. You'll also have no trouble spotting your bag among all the plain vanilla carry-ons when you travel by airplane. The Carry-On Rolly bag seems significantly lighter than a standard suitcase of that size, so you won't already have a heavy bag on your hands before you add anything to it.
Interior pockets make organizing easy
As with the Super Tote, I especially adore the interior pockets, which make it a breeze to find your shampoo, socks, undies, lotion or whatever other sundries you may want to grab in a hurry when you arrive at your hotel. The long, telescoping handle slides out easily, and the inline skate wheels glide smoothly and more quietly than other rolling cases I've used.
Both the Super Tote and Rolly Bag that I tested consist of soft, sturdy fabric, seem quite durable and come in a variety of attractive patterns and colors - something for every taste. Cinda b's poly/nylon products are stain resistant and water resistant, too, and amazingly lightweight. Most are machine washable, though the Rolly Bag requires spot cleaning only.
Great selection of American-made products
In addition to their extraordinary roller bags and tote bags, cinda b sells a variety of Made in America designer totes, bags and cosmetic cases. They even sell stylish hard cases for iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones. You can buy the company's products online at cindab.com as well as at various upscale boutiques.
