Having something stylish isn’t enough these days. With everything that is happening in the world, finding something that is both stylish and reliable would be better. Stylish, reliable, safe, and versatile – now, that’s a keeper! Just like the newest California-designed bags that we’ve discovered on Lazada called Beside U.
Beside U originated in sunny California with a goal to “earn a place by your side”, thus, the name. It started as a small handbag crafting business in 1979 and eventually boomed into a brand that is now available in 14 countries and counting. It’s not an ordinary bag brand, though! Beside U is now known for their Radio Frequency Identification(RFID)-blocking technology embedded in each bag, which has become a necessity after increasing worries over identity theft cases. The RFID-blocking material in the zip pockets of bags will help save us from losing valuable information and most especially, hard-earned money even as we’re out and about.
Aside from the RFID-blocking material, Beside U also offers water-repellant variants that are also lightweight, functional, and easy to clean. These are essential things to look for in bags today since we need to disinfect everything that goes out of the house to prevent deadly viruses from entering our safe spaces.
Design-wise, there are so much to choose from, so we’re sure that you’ll find something that suits your taste- from backpacks to hand bags, flashy to simple, and colorful to muted hues.
I got one that is big enough for my weekend errands and even though it has white accents, sanitizing it after a trip outside is super easy because of its lightweight material. The strap can be adjusted and removed to suit my #OOTD as well! With at least 4 mini pockets (2 outside and 2 inside), it’s very easy for me to organize my stuff and keep items that need extra sanitation away from my other things. Functional, practical, stylish, safe, and affordable – Beside U is definitely a keeper!
