Go Forth Goods – Gunnar Duffle, Nuts and Bolts

GO FORTH GOODS – Gunnar Leather Duffle Bag

…be faithful down to the last stitch, give back, and make a difference.

I’m loving this bag!  By far, this is the biggest leather bag I’ve reviewed and my first true travel bag.  We went camping a few weeks ago and I cannot believe the capacity of this bag.  For a 3 day, 2 night stay, we fit clothes in there for hubby, kiddo and myself.   My husband absolutely adores this bag as it fits well with his tall frame (6’3”) and he’s a huge fan of backpack mode.  I wanted to do this Nuts and Bolts video first so you can appreciate the size and features of this bag.

Stay tuned for my full review as I take it with me on a family road trip up the coast in the next few weeks!  I’ll show you exactly what fits in this bag and how to pack it smart.

If you don’t know Go Forth Goods, get to know them.  They’re not just a bag company, they’re American crafters, good to the last stitch so you know it’s guaranteed for life. If that doesn’t move you, how about this?  They’re giving back 10% to support nonprofits.  Yup, I applaud their commitment to the community and their commitment to American made.

GO FORTH GOODS – Gunnar Leather Duffle Bag

“…be faithful down to the last stitch, to give back, and make a difference.”

I’m inspired by the Go Forth Goods – to inspire others to do good. I’m glad to shine a light on their positivity, their American made commitment and their choice to give back to the community.  10% of all their profits go to support their chosen charity. They’re a small team of five in Georgia, getting it done, handmade and guaranteed for life.

As you know, I’ve searched long and hard for the right military style duffle bag to review. This one caught my eye for a few reasons and I can’t wait to test drive it. Road trip, anyone?

On the mechanics of this bag…everything metal is solid brass, there’s a double handle top carry, a zipper option and a backpack option.   There’s just a pride of craftsmanship that shines through on this bag. This is the first bag Nathan created.  After seeing it first hand, I understand why Go Forth Goods took flight.  Watch Nathan talk about his baby here.

Beaudin – Convertible Backpack Review

 

BEAUDIN – Convertible Backpack, Review

Each sale helps liberate those in sex slavery and provides training and employment.

What a fun bag!  I loved cruising around with this bag for the last two (2) months.  It’s a perfect bag for when you’re going to be out and about for a long period of time.  It’s my go-to bag for Saturday swim lessons when I’m going to be standing for a few hours.  I love to walk to errands whenever I can so if I’m going to the bank or to the grocery store, then this is my bag.  It’s so lightweight so I can walk with it for hours at a time and switch it up from tote to backpack mode.  It’ll hold all my essentials (I have a lot of essentials!), snacks for kiddo and a thin jacket.  Yes – it does fit a swell water bottle!  I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it being more soft than structured, but I actually really liked that aspect of it. It molds to you so you forget you’re wearing it after a while.  One other thing about it being in backpack mode – – I cinch it super tight in the video, just my personal preference as I like how it hangs that way (esp considering I wear only one strap on one shoulder), but you don’t need to cinch it quite so tight and it lays more rectangle shaped on your back, if you prefer.

The best part of this bag is the mission behind the makers, a mother / daughter duo designing out of Georgia.  Every bag is handmade, but more importantly, a portion of every sale goes to Out of Darkness.  This ministry reaches, rescues and restores victims of sex slavery.  It’s a product with a purpose.  Give Beaudin a try and let me know what you think! They’ve expanded their line to now include jewelry as well.  As for me, I want the hairy double tassel next!

Beaudin – Convertible Backpack, Unboxing

 

BEAUDIN – Convertible Backpack, Unboxing

I’m loving this little backpack / tote!  It’s my go-to weekend bag for when I’m going to be out and about for a long time.  It’s really lightweight so I take it if I’m taking kiddo to the park, her swim lesson or going for a picnic.  I usually stuff it with my skinny wallet (essentials), fat wallet (non-essentials), sunglasses, keys, phone, phone charger, keys and I can even stuff my favorite hooded Columbia fleece in there. I keep my phone in the outer pocket and I love that the bag zips and the pocket closes so I don’t worry even when I’m carrying it in backpack mode.   Plus since it’s fully secure, I can toss it in the backseat without my stuff flying everywhere.  This is one of the few bags I have that closes securely so I’m really loving that zipper. Plus, the tassel detail on the zipper makes closing / opening very easy.

I wanted to know more about Beaudin so I asked one half of the mom/daughter duo to share more with me and here’s what I found:

  • Leather – USA made top grain.  I love that this bag is truly an American piece – – the leather, the design and the production are all American.
  • Cowhide – They use a premium cowhide with an acid wash finish. If you watch my video, you’ll see what this means.  It’s got this gorgeous shimmery light brown / gold and where the acid washes off the hair, this silver metallic shines through.  I love that the pocket is sort of this wild contrast, but the rest of the bag is a soft black.  It’s just enough interest without being over the top.
  • I also just wanted to know more about Beaudin – how they came to be, what drives them and the charities that they choose to support.  I feel good about supporting their mission and giving back to their commitment to be truly an American made product.  Here  is that detail in their own words:
We are a mother & daughter team who’s passions for freedom and fashion collided. What started as a business to create what we love has now become a way to show love. We do this by teaching others how to make beautiful things and a beautiful life. We put all we had into making products we would want to buy ourselves and began to grow. It came time that we could no longer be the only makers. We decided to follow our hearts and train and hire ladies who have overcome difficult situations. Every product represents freedom from adversity. While helping to provide freedom to those still enslaved. A portion of our sales goes to liberate those in sex slavery. Each Beaudin accessory is a PRODUCT with PURPOSE.
