What the heck is a leisure bag?

The ultimate bag for beach and picnics

How many bags have you got lying around the house? 

Our guess is that you’ve probably got a gym bag, a beach bag, a picnic bag, weekend bags, and carry-on bags for when you fly. If you’ve got kids, you may also have a large baby or family bag, because whenever you leave the house with kids, you need to take half your possessions with you!
What if we told you there was an easier way? What if there was one bag that could do the job of all your bags combined? Well, there is and it's designed in Australia by two career designers, and mothers, who knew there was a better way.

Now we know what you’re thinking: What the heck is a leisure bag anyway?

Think of Kahoots as the only weekend travel bag you’ll ever need. Ours are designed to do the job of almost every other bag you have. Take it on your next weekend away or to the beach, the gym, yoga or Pilates class, picnics, camping  and family days out.

But how can one bag be used for all these different occasions? Let’s show you some of the key features of our gorgeous leisure bags and then you’ll see exactly how.

What do I need in a leisure bag?

One thing that blows everyone away about our weekender travel bags is their size. with two capacities - 58L and 45L, there's one to suite your needs and they're easy to carry, even when full, with comfortable cross body strap made with male bodies in mind. 

Having a different bag for every different possible occasion is frustrating. Buying multiple bags for different reasons can get expensive, not to mention where are you actually going to store them all?

Because our leisure bags can be used for so many different events, you won’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on heaps of different bags, and have a cupboard stuffed full of bags that only get used a handful of times a year.
Some bags are large and functional but they lack style. We designed our bags with style at the forefront of our minds. If you’re going to be using a bag for multiple occasions, you want it to look great too!
Water resistant
All our bags are made from water resistant materials. The exterior of the bag is made from heavy duty treated canvas and the lining is made from superior water resistant nylon.

Easy to store
You may think, "but it’s such a large bag, how on earth would I store it?" Flat. That’s how. Our Leisure Bags may be large enough to hold everything (including the kitchen sink) but they fold completely flat for super space-saving storage when not in use. How handy is that?

Now you know exactly what a leisure bag is, you’re probably wondering just where you would actually use it. Here are just a few ideas for how you could use your leisure bag:
At the beach – Pack all your towels, snacks, water bottles, sunscreen, change of clothes, magazines and books, swimming goggles, snorkels, hats, and whatever else you need for a fun day at the beach.
Sailing and boating – Because all our bags are waterproof, they’re ideal for a day on the water. Pack your swimmers, a picnic, some drinks and you’re boat-ready!
Gym and sports – A leisure bag makes the perfect gym or sports bag. Take it to the gym, or to your exercise class, or to team practice.
Picnics and days out – Ideal for picnics due to its massive storage capacity and handy interior pockets and separate zipped pouch – take your leisure bag and be the envy of everyone else.
Weekends away – Going away for the weekend, even camping? You’ll fit everything you could possibly need in your possibly even for 2 people! The included packing cell and multiple zipped pockets make it easy to seperate your items for easy access even when space is cramped, like in a tent or caravan.
Travel – Designed with travel in mind, you can also use your leisure bag when you fly, cruise, bus or train.

We embrace the slow fashion ethos and craft timeless pieces that will serve you well for years to come.
