CAMA Bag – The Smaller One – Review

“Disclaimer: I received a CAMA Bag to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!”

What do you do with your sweaty clothes after a run? How do you store your dirty clothes when you’re on vacation? No one wants to mix their dirty clothes with clean ones. And I know, after a long run or race, I like to change out of my sweaty clothes before driving home. It’s not pleasant to sit in stinky clothes, and I definitely can’t sit in wet clothes after the adrenaline of my workout wears off.
The CAMA Bag

I introduce to you the CAMA Bag. I received the CAMA Bag, the smaller one, to try out, and I love the bag. First, let me give you some details about the bag. The CAMA Bag is made with water-resistant materials and repels moisture preventing saturation from penetrating interior lining.

The CAMA Bag is also a double interior lining to absorb moisture and lock in odors. The materials for the CAMA Bag are locally sourced, and the bags are made in the USA. The smaller bag retails for $45 and is available in three colors: white, black, and steel blue. There is also a bigger version of the CAMA bag for $55.

The CAMA Bag
What I love about the CAMA Bag:

  • I know you shouldn’t care about the esthetics of your dirty clothes bag, but this is very nice. The bag is chic-looking. If you’re carrying it around, it would not be an eyesore.
  • There is a loop for carrying or clipping onto your bag. Having the carrying loop makes the back more functional for all situations. I used the bag to bring the clean clothes I wanted to change into after a race, and it was nice to slip it around my wrist. 
  • The CAMA Bag is built tough for any adventure, and that adventure will stay in the bag. What goes in the bag stays in the bag. I never worried about the odors coming from the bag or even my sweaty clothes leaking through the bag.
  • The CAMA Bag is easy to clean by turning the bag inside and washing it in cold water. After drying, the CAMA Bag is ready for your next workout.
  • I could fit a lot of clothes in the CAMA Bag – the smaller one.  I fit two days of winter running layers into the bag.

The CAMA Bag is an essential part of my running gear now, and I hope it becomes part of your favorite gear, too! I would recommend this bag for the person who gets sweaty and has to change clothes. But also, to the person who is a frequent traveler, needs to keep their dirty clothes separate in a suitcase.

Are you hydrating the right way? (featuring Ultima Replenisher Electrolytes)

“Disclaimer: I received an Ultima Replenisher to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!” It’s hot outside, and Ultima Replenisher has helped me stay hydrated over these heated months. It is hard to avoid it, especially living on the Texas coast. The heat and humidity make the workouts harder, which means I spend a little extra time focusing on hydration. Long runs become a bit harder during the summer months, which is ironic because this is when we start training for those fall races…

Trying NOW® Sports Effer-Hydrate to aid in hydration

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease. This time of year, it’s hard for me to stay hydrated. Texas summer leaves me always reaching for my water bottle, but a southeast Texas “winter” leaves me with comfortable temperatures where it feels great to get some miles outside.  My daily routine consists of 80-100 ounces of water per day. When I’m hydrated, I sleep better; I don’t feel sluggish throughout the day, my skin is in great shape, and it easier to make it…

App review: The Peleton Digital app

App review: The Peleton Digital app

Peleton is a huge success and came onto the scene with that insane bike that people are raving over.  I’m sad to say that I don’t have one, but I want one.  I can probably justify getting one now that I’ve lost one of my cycle classes. I do have a cycle back in my living room so I did make the decision to try the app.  I’ll be real with you, I tried the app a while ago and it was $12.95/month.  I thought it was insanely expensive to pay that much for the app.  At the time, it…

Air fryer has changed my world

Air fryer has changed my world

When I got pregnant my number one craving has been chicken.  I want chicken strips and mashed potatoes (well potatoes of any kind) all the time but those little strips can pack a lot of calories.  And having french fries on the regular isn’t that healthy either.  I’m really trying to stay away from that stuff.  Then I got to thinking about an air fryer. I watched the infomercials many times and I was intrigued but it wasn’t enough to make me want to get one.  After all, do they really work?  Does it really require no oil or little…

Recipes: Stay healthy and indulge over the holidays

Recipes: Stay healthy and indulge over the holidays

It’s coming on Christmas and there are tons of treats and foods in your face.  It’s impossible to escape.  You know I’m a big fan of moderation and deprivation.  If you deprive yourself of the things you want, you’ll probably end up binging on those foods later.  Enjoy them now with moderation and portion control. There still is a way to stay healthy and indulge over the holidays. I will indulge during the holidays but I’m ok with it because I am keeping active. I try to keep my activities holiday themed too because it’s just so much more fun.…

Eggland’s Best Eggs: a nutrient dense food

Eggland’s Best Eggs: a nutrient dense food

Nutrient dense foods vs. empty calories is something I’ve been wanting to address on the blog for a long time. I don’t know why I haven’t done it before now. It’s summer and I’m training for a marathon (SHOCKER!) and it’s important for me to get all the great nutrients out of my food that I possibly can…especially now that we’ve switched to a plant-based diet. The harder the workouts, the more I need to replace all that stuff leaving my body. Food is fuel and that is something you should remember when you’re consuming your calories.  Food fuels our…
