Mia Tui Mini Jen travel bag review

For a while now I've been looking to buy a new travel bag, so I was delighted when I was offered the chance to review the Mini Jen travel bag from Mia Tui

The founder of this great bag company has something in common with me - she hates scrabbling around trying to find items in the bottom of a bag. So there are plenty of pockets and compartments to help you stay organised; two which are big enough for iPads, Kindles and tablets, an insulated water bottle holder, phone pocket, pen holder and an elasticated key clip. Then there's a very handy outside zipped pocket too.

Another great feature to help with finding your items is the brightly coloured lining - turquoise in the case of my bag, which is a gorgeous metallic grey on the outside. The bags are all made from high quality fabrics, but not using any animal based products (so suitable for vegans), and they still feel very much like ultra soft leather.

One of the main features of all the Mia Tui travel bags (there's also the Jennie which is slightly bigger, and the Zoe) is that behind the outer zipped pocket is a hole which enables the bag to be slotted over suitcase handles, leaving your hands free for drinks or shopping. It comes with a clear internal bag with hand strap AND a matching clutch bag with hand and cross-body strap. This mini clutch was perfect for when I went to a Take That concert recently and I know it will get good use for going out and when on holiday too.

The Mini Jen is 35cm wide by 14cm deep and 29cm high - just the right size in my opinion. Not too big, so it doesn't get too heavy, but plenty big enough to fit a decent amount of 'stuff' in. There are metal studs on the base of the bag for protection and a shoulder strap for the whole bag to make it hands free if you don't have a case to put it over the top of!

We were also sent the Oxford backpack, which is a genius product. It's a lightweight shower proof backpack which folds away into its zipped front pocket making it an easy, small item to pack for travelling. Definitely handy for days out.

When unfolded, it has the main big zipped compartment plus a smaller front pocket with a zip, plus two side pockets for water bottles or tissues etc. Unlike some other foldaway products, this one is really easy to do which is a definite bonus!

Right now there's a great travel bundle offer** on the Mia Tui website - get a FREE set of packing cubes and an Alex Folding Beach/Travel bag when you buy one of their travel bags. Hurry!

* Disclosure: these bags were sent for free in exchange for an honest review; all opinions and words are my own.

** The travel bundle deals on the Mia Tui website are subject to change without notice but they do generally have a good offer on so it's always worth checking what it is!
