We (The Loadout Room) have reviewed several of the smaller FlowFold products in the past. We are always looking for those all American companies pushing the limits with materials, design and innovation. FlowFold is one of those companies that is producing quality products for an active lifestyle. I’ve been extremely impressed with the Vanguard Wallet, which I’ve been carrying for several months. Click here to take a look at the previous FlowFold reviews we have done.

Being so impressed with their line of wallets and the Optimist Minimalist Backpack, I decided to give one of their larger bags a try; the 16L Zip Porter in the Aquamarine color. The bag really excels as a pool bag, beach bag, picnic bag or grocery bag. My family has used the bag for family picnics as well as going to the local pool. Due to the bags durable X-Pac material and YKK weatherproof Zippers, we never had any issues with sand or water getting inside the bag.  After taking the Zip Porter out on several family outings, it still shows no signs of wear.

Weighing in at half a pound, we remodeled a classic design with modern aesthetics, cast-iron strength, and water-resistant materials. The Zip Porter is stoic in unpredictable weather and invulnerable to spills.

The main compartment is perfect for carrying a variety of essentials like books, groceries, or towels while a compact outer pocket keeps your phone, keys, and wallet within easy reach. The Zip Porter makes an excellent carry-on, lunch bag, and go-to for your daily commute.
