Finding the Perfect Mission Bag

www.lds.org/missionaries
There are so many items to buy and find and it has been hard to find a good bag that will be durable and doesn't stand out too much. I am going to Ecuador and missionaries get stolen from a lot. So I have been having a hard time finding a bag that is dark, durable, and will last a long time. So I thought I would write a post about finding the perfect bag!

According to the LDS Missionary Guidelines:
For safety and security reasons, handbags, jewelry, and other accessories should be simple and conservative. You are encouraged to choose shoulder bags and purses that are both professional and durable: backpacks are not professional.
I have been looking for something that is:
  • Water resistant
  • Durable
  • Minimal Logos
  • Solid Color
  • Big enough to hold pass along cards, Preach My Gospel, my scriptures, a few snacks, and my water bottle.

Here are some bags that other sister missionaries have suggested and the links on where you can find them!

REI Brookdale Mini Messenger Bag - Women's - $44.50



Ogio Brooklyn Women's Purse - $40.00



Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag - Prices range from $50.00 - $180.00


Tip: Great for missionaries going to biking areas



Vintage UK Style Faux PU Leather Shoulder Bag Handbag Messenger Bag Cross Body - $20.83



Baggallini Messenger Bag - $40.99 


I plan on getting the last bag. It looks like it will be the most comfortable and durable. I plan on getting it this week. Plus I have Amazon Prime so I don't have to pay for shipping!

Good luck finding your perfect bag.
