Heavy Baggage

mio in and out bags!

Looking for the perfect tote?

Here are a few questions to help you figure out if Mio’s In + Out bag is right for you.

Big or little?
a) Give me a satchel with epic proportions. I use it as a catchall for wipes, blankies, and stuff on the go, or I load it up with sunscreen, sand toys, and towels for a quick getaway.
b) A clutch works just fine, thanks.

High or low maintenance?
a) Something that’s durable, waterproof, and can be tossed in the wash when it’s covered with Junior’s grubby handprints.
b) Buttery leather with a silk lining. Or wait, were you asking about me?

Over it? What’s next?
a) Ship it back to the manufacturer in a prepaid envelope and let it take care of the recycling.
b) Um, Birkins never go out of style.

Got straight A’s? This one’s in the bag.
