In Real Life
I got the black nylon Gemini mini convertible backpack and let me tell you this bag is so versatile and sooo pretty! I absolutely love the red interior, I think it’s my favorite part. Plus, it holds everything that I need day to day with room left over for the things I don’t need but carry anyway. Five stars!
Absolutely love this bag!
It’s only rough part is the the straps, they could be a little more flexible/softer. But aside from that it’s my favorite bag I own. I love the aqua lining. It’s gorgeous and has so much space. Very pleased with this purchase.
I love it . It is so versatile, great work bag has tons of room for everything.
All the stars 🌟 💫
Can’t wait to use it on vacation as well.
I was also very hesitant to purchase this, and read many reviews and looked at many photos. I was worried I wouldn’t actually get much use out of it, as I usually hate carrying a purse at all; but I started attending church and Bible study more and needed a bag to carry my Bible and notebook and things for my kids to avoid carrying multiple bags… after using this a few times, I can say that I love this bag WAY more than I ever thought I would! The pockets make it easy to be organized, and it has the perfect amount of room!
A caveat though: the shoulder straps are very uncomfortable; they’re hard/stiff and dig into my shoulder. I purchased a separate messenger strap, and 10/10 recommend! It makes all the difference! Much more comfortable. White Elm, you may even consider designing your own separate messenger straps to compliment your bags :)
I finally feel like a grown up 🤣 (I’m 34 btw) This bag feels and looks so nice. Lots of great pockets. I was nervous about the size- I’m used to a smaller cross body, but was really needing something larger to fit all my daughters stuff in. I felt the mini was a great step. Doesn’t feel too big. I definitely love this bag and would get another.
I recently traveled for work, with three overnight stays. I did not check a bag, so I traveled with my TSA-approved plastic bag that held all liquids, gels, etc. I also carried my iPad, keyboard, and Kindle Scribe in the Gemini Mini. I felt like there was not enough room and the bag was cramped by the time I placed charging cords, medications, and other essentials that must be kept with me at all times. The zipper could close all the way, but it was a tight, bulky fit. I should have bought the Gemini, not Gemini Mini. But, the Mini is about as heavy as it should be. It feels as if a standard Gemini would be too heavy, yet it would have been roomier for extended travel. I did use the bag like a backpack at times while at the conference, and when traveling through airports, I unzipped the outside pocket that allows for the bag to fit over the carrying handle on the carry-on luggage. It is beautiful and durable, and my water bottle or plastic bottled soda fits the end pockets without any issue. I used the internal key fob hook to hold onto my keys and earbuds. The Gemini Mini is more suited to long day trips when you need only a few items with you, and still look professional and stylish. The iPad and Kindle fit nicely, but my MacBook Air would not fit and allow the snap to lock and secure the device. Fortunately, only the iPad was needed on this trip. The Interior is nice and luxurious. Padded support for electronics. If you want a true taupe color, this is not for you. It is more of a rose color. Pink undertones outweigh any intended beige. As the video ad on fb states, it is a grayish lavender tone. Still a great-looking neutral color. Perfectly complemented the carry-on from Away in "petal".
This bag is perfect! I am currently using it as my work bag but can’t wait to travel with it for vacation as well! So versatile! I hesitated buying at first (the price was a little higher than I wanted to spend) but soooo glad I went for it and let me tell you - it is so worth the price! Prefect size, perfect color (taupe) and amazing functionality! I am just obsessed with the backpack straps! If you are thinking about getting the bag, DO IT! I already want more colors and sizes lol.
I love this bag! I often carry a larger bag bc I seem to bring everyone’s stuff including mine. There is enough room and lots of compartments to stay organized. The different carrying options are great too. It helps to have a backpack when I need to be hands free. But the BIGGEST benefit, it is not overly heavy. Bonus: the material is soft and durable and you really do look so Sophisticated carrying it.
I am so happy. Bought the whole set! Thank you for making a mini version!
