For the last two years we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to offer a complimentary Donner bag from Overland Equipment to each of our tour participants…and we’re pretty excited to announce that our partnership is extending through 2015! Next year we’ll be offering a choice of bag; you can choose from the Donner, a classic, roomy bag (value $65), or the Madera, a lightweight bag (value $70), ideal for a day on the town.
We love partnering with this west coast company – which began in 1981, with one sewing machine and a whole lot of creativity – and being able to give each of our tour participants one of their beautiful bags. These stylish, rugged bags rank among my favorite travel accessories. I love the variety of colors and all the handy pockets which help me stay organized. The bags are built for an active lifestyle and include features such as a fleece-lined cell phone pocket, magnetic flap closures and secure zippered pockets.
Many of our tour participants are repeat Wanderlusters and may already have a Donner bag or two in their closet. That’s why we’re thrilled to be able to offer an alternative to those traveling with us in 2015. At just .6 of a pound in weight, the Madera offers a different, lighter experience than the number one selling Donner.
Whichever bag you choose, I swear you won’t be disappointed! Interested in booking a tour with us and receiving one of these beautiful bags? There’s still opportunity to travel with us in 2015. Choose both the style and color of bag you’d like when you book our Burma Women-Only Culture and Pagoda tour in February or to Vietnam in March . If an overseas trip isn’t in your plans for next year, consider one of our culinary tours to New Orleans, Santa Fe and Seattle.
