Ever since the city banned plastic bags in Bellingham I have been collecting reusable bags to carry with me. And by carry-with-me I mean leave-them-in-the-trunk-of-the-car; I am that cool. Rarely do I came about a reusable bags that have more than one purpose in life. Hey, even bags want to be helpful. right?
What exactly is The Grocer
The Grocer was based on the adirondack baskets long used in Adirondack Pack, NY. These baskets were used to carry heavy loads of hunting, fishing, trapping goods and other miscellaneous finds in the mountain wilderness.
The structure and flat bottom of the pack were ingenious and resourceful, as the design allowed for increased stability of the pack basket, independent of the load.*
The Grocer was based on this technology with some modern touches, like an internal frame that lets this multi-purpose tote to be folded and unfolded with ease.
I instantly got a liking for The Grocer. The frame is sturdy and makes it easy for this tote to be a true multi-purpose tote. I have used it,mainly, as a pool tote. The pack fits 4 towels and two extra changes of clothes quite well. Plus two pairs of goggles and two pairs of shoes.
That said, my husband was not a fan of this tote. He thinks its shape is unconventional and that it lacks a lid. But to that I tell him: all of our other grocery bags do not have lids either…if you want to close one you have to tie the bands.
And to that, ADK Packworks adds: the lid. Ta-da!
What makes The Grocer stand out among all other multi-purpose totes? The frame and sturdiness makes The Grocer one of a kind. Many multi-purpose totes are flimsy. Let’s say that you go grocery shopping and put all your goodies in the trunk. Left turn…and there goes the apples, the milk, and hopefully the eggs make it home! Most totes will roll into the deep of your trunk while The Grocer will sit still and keep the eggs safe from harm.
Should you get one? Nah, go for 2 or more!
