Women riders are always on the lookout for the perfect do-all multi-function accessory to make their motorcycle riding experience the best it can be. I received The Lauren bag, a high-end motorcycle specific backpack/tote to review, and after spending several weeks using it, I believe this is truly the “everything bag” a female rider needs.
The multipurpose backpack/tote was designed by motorcycle rider Debra Chin, who was disappointed with the clothing and accessory options available for women like her. She founded MotoChic in 2013 and since 2015 has been selling the Lauren and Valerie bags to women who seek a classy and common sense solution to how to carry their important things while riding their motorcycle.
I’m planning a trip soon from San Diego to the Redwoods of California, and I’m looking forward to using this bag for the entire eight-day ride.After wearing the Lauren as a backpack for more than 500 around-town miles over the last six weeks I’m anticipating the bag will work well for my long distance travel needs. One benefit I see to wearing the backpack is having everything I need right on me when I make pit stops. I won’t have to dig in my saddlebags for cash, toiletries, or a purse when I enter convenience stores and lunch stops along the way.
If I decide to do some sightseeing or shopping along the way, I can quickly and easily convert the backpack into a tote as I enjoy my time off the bike.
The Lauren and The Valerie are now part of my standard riding gear and I will be using them for a long time. I didn’t realize how much I needed these exact items until I started using them. And I love all of the compliments from my riding friends who “oooh and aaah” over my bags! Functional and beautiful.
Again, the cost is $325, a price I think is very fair considering all that you get in this well made, top quality, motorcycle specific convertible bag.
