Marc Jacobs Large Quilted Nylon Travel Bag UNBOXING

Welcome back the Girlie Blog!

Spring break is around the corner, and our family is excited to finally able to travel. To celebrate, I purchased a travel bag that I have been eyeballing, and it is the MARC JACOBS QUILTED NYLON BAG.  It just arrived; and I cannot wait to start the unboxing! 

Before we start, I will explain the reasons why I wanted this bag. Then I will unbox and show you what the bag looks like right out of the package. Finally, I will share my first impressions.

Why I purchased the bag?

What I looked for was a well-sized travel bag as carry-on for the airplane; simply because non-carry-ons cost so much! I also wanted a bag that is sleek and not bulky, but also made of stretchy material so I could "create" room if I have to. Lastly, I wanted a stylish and multi-functional bag.

Because of Marc Jacob's modern style and known quality, it was a top choice for me. I was also attracted by its nylon material (sounded sturdy) and the quilted pattern that reminded me of the traditional Chanel design. The measurements were right-on as well, in that it is indeed quite a large bag.

Now let's unbox!

The box that stored the bag is well-packaged ... wow there is a lot of room inside! What I notice first is all the space inside. It's also expansive. 
The bag measures 13.62 x 12.68 x 4.02 inches.
It weighs 1.94 pounds and is easy to handle.
The handles easily slide onto my shoulders.

On the exterior, there is a roomy side pocket for larger items such as a layering jacket or cardigan. That would be great for layering during the plane ride. There are two small pockets on each side of the bag. I can use them for storing snacks and water bottles. I can also roll up magazines to read to put inside. On the other side of the exterior, there is a zipper pocket with less room and a beautiful Marc Jacobs logo. It is great for storing items like my wallet, passport and other essentials that I'd like to protect.

Now, on to the inside of the bag. It is spacious! Inside, there is another beautiful Marc Jacobs logo sewn onto a smaller zip top pocket. Inside the pocket, I found a certificate of authenticity, which is important for designer bags.

There is also a strap inside. The strap is adjustable and has stylish striped design. The straps are detachable and can turn the bag into a crossbody so my hands can be completely free.

Overall Impressions

The bag is great.  It came exactly as described on the website. I especially like that it is roomy, stretchable but also stylish. The overall look and feel fit my personal style; and the quilted exterior adds maturity and a feel fo luxury. I also like that it is a functional bag; and with the convertible straps, it certainly brings a convenient factor. Finally, I find the bag comfortable to wear. 

I can see myself using the bag for more than just our spring break trip. It can become a weekend bag, a gym bag, and a "mom bag" for when I am out with the kids. 

So far, I am happy with the purchase and cannot wait to use it.

Thanks for your time!

If you have this bag, feel free to drop a line and let me know what you think.

See you next time.
