A new twist to the classic bag and baggie that was once a staple of the backpacker and backpacker culture.
A new brand called IPSY glam bag and its bags are designed to look stylish, functional and carry all the essentials in one package.
It also has the potential to help people get on their feet while travelling.
And it comes with a free online course on how to get started.
“What we wanted to do was to make a bag that people could put on their back, carry their bag and be able to carry it wherever they went,” said co-founder and CEO Jessica Jacobs.
“It can be used on a trip, it can be brought on a business trip, or it can even be used for a weekend trip.”
IPSY bags are already on sale in Canada and the United States.
The first bag is available for pre-order at Amazon.ca, with the price set at $299.
They’ll be available in the next few months.
The new IPSY bags will come in a range of sizes.
For example, they come in three different sizes, and will come with two different storage compartments, as well as a backpack and a handbag.
You can also choose from an array of styles for your bag, including a minimalist look.
What’s the catch?
The bag has to be washed and dry before you can use it.
That’s not an issue for those who don’t like to wash their gear, but for those like Jacobs who do, it’s something to consider.
“There are some very simple things that people might not realize,” she said.
How much does it cost?
The IPSY bag will retail for $299, and they have plans to expand to the U.S. and Canada.
Is there a free course to get you started?
You can check out the free online courses on how-to-get-started with IPSY on the company’s website.
It’s a little pricey, but it’s still worth the investment if you plan to carry a lot of stuff.
Jacobs said she’s excited to see what people think about the bag.
“It’s really about the experience,” she says.
“If you’re a backpacker who doesn’t need a lot or you don’t have a lot to carry, then it’s a great option for you.”
