Mile 22 Bags Review & Giveaway

I came across Mile 22 Bags (HERE) on Facebook awhile ago.  They were doing something really cool with your race memorabilia.  Mile 22 bags makes custom bags to carry all of your goods to races, the gym, to work, playdates ... you name it.  You simply send in your race memorabilia -- think race bibs, race t-shirts, they even can make use out of your medal ribbons for the handles, if you want. 


When Mile 22 Bags said that they would like to work together, I looked through my t-shirt drawer for some of the race shirts that were important to me, but that I wasn't currently wearing.  I like to display my race bibs (sorted by year) on my bulletin board.  So, I pulled off some that matched the t-shirts and made photo copies on my home printer.  I didn't want to send in the originals (see photo above).

I sent it all in and impatiently waited for my awesome, custom bag to arrive a couple of weeks later ....

 


I chose the Race Day Tote (HERE) in Sky Blue (because they don't offer pink).  This bag is available in ten fun colors of the rainbow (although, I would suggest some more vibrant colors, including pink).

The Race Day Tote Bag is made of high quality Cordura® and custom sewn to order. This is a great every day bag with a design that allows you to carry a ton of stuff. The wrap around design covers most of the exterior space with your memorabilia. Great if you have a lot of races to celebrate…or just want to feature your favorite. The bag has been improved and includes a narrow accent band on the top of the artwork in the color that you have chosen.

Race Day Tote Description:Bag dimensions: Appx. 19” W x 13.5” H
Artwork: 2 sided- 19”W x 10” H each side
Memorabilia: Fits 12 bibs perfectly or fewer bibs and 1-2 t-shirts
Features: 2 straps with a 10” drop, 1 interior pocket, magnetic closure
Retail price:  $95.00



They offer five different bag options, in various sizes and at different prices ... something in everyone's price range.  Each bag allows you to include less or more memorabilia. 

I can't wait to sport this tote at next week's Women's Half Marathon!  There is a ton of space in here to carry your running shoes, running gear and an extra change of clothes and toiletries for after.  I even plan to store a small cooler in it for post-race.  The bag is huge, but manageable.  It's sturdy, too.  What a great conversation piece this will be ... I already know that I will have to carry Mile 22 business cards in my bag, because I will be asked where I found it.  They also sell gift certificates, which would make great birthday gifts or stocking stuffers, for that dedicated runner in your life.

  4. Visited the website- besides the race day tote, the duffel is pretty cool, too. I don't know that I'd be able to send in originals, so it's nice to know from you that you can send in color copies (I put my bibs in a scrapbook with photos and everything).
