Introducing a Handbag That Can Keep You Hydrated
By Alvin Ward
Carrying around enough water to keep you hydrated throughout the day can be a tricky task, especially if you don't want to travel with a bulky water bottle. A new Kickstarter campaign hopes to make getting your daily H2O easier. The Conway bag is a small purse with a hidden water pouch inside—a fashionable solution to dehydration.
"From clunky water bottles that you lose on a weekly basis to forgetting to drink water all together, 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated," the campaign explains. "The Conway makes drinking water throughout your busy day easier than ever."
The creators of the Conway aim to combat a number of problems that plague thirsty Americans. Constantly buying plastic water bottles is expensive and bad for the environment, but carrying around a cumbersome water bottle can be annoying—especially if you lose things easily. With this new bag, they hope you'll no longer have to worry about these issues.
Each bag has a hidden 17-ounce water pouch that fits snuggly inside a water resistant pocket. Designed by Platypus, the container is easily removed and refilled. It has a flat shape, giving plenty of room for all your other belongings. A long drinking tube is snaked through the strap and can be accessed through a zipper, giving you a sneaky way to quickly get a few gulps in on the go. (The page does not explicitly say you can fill this bag up with wine and sneak it into an event, but we're all thinking it.)
The bag comes in two styles: Classic Black and Weekender. The subtle look and shape of the bag is meant to be a sleek option for customers that don't want to trade fashion for function. The bag is 9 inches tall and 10 inches wide, but only 1 inch deep, meaning it falls flat on your hip but still has plenty of room for your wallet, keys, and phone. It's also made from a light cotton material, so it won't feel heavy, even with 17 ounces of water sloshing inside.
You can pre-order your own bag right here and say goodbye to shoving water bottles in your purse.
