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.

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…

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.…

Sponsored: Taste the freshness with Eggland’s Best Eggs.

I do love eggs, that is not a secret.  I became very weary of eating anything but eggs whites when we started our weight loss journey.  Willie always told me that was silly because eggs were really not that bad to eat because eggs are a great source of protein and vitamins.  Come to find out, Willie was right and there’s really no need to avoid the whole egg. That is why I was so excited when I was contacted by Eggland’s Best to talk about their eggs.  Eggs don’t have to be an ingredient in your dish, it can…

Six:02 and The Reebok Skyscape Runaround

Six:02 and The Reebok Skyscape Runaround

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Reebok. This past weekend I visited my local Six:02 store at Memorial City Mall to buy some Reebok Skyscapes. I must start this off by telling you I knew nothing about Six:02 and I’m not a real big fan of Reebok. Spoiler alert: things have changed on that front. My first impression of the store: this store is for women! I loved the modern feel of the store. Everything had a place and it was very organized. The store sells different brands from Asics to Reebok so there is…
