MANDRN Remy Bag Review

A MANDRN Remy bag review for the girlies who want an un-basic, aesthetic belt bag.

It has been almost a year since I bought the MANDRN Atlas bag (read my full review here). Mandrn has blown up over the past year (YAY SMALL BUSINESS!). This resulted in some leather options being out of stock. Mandrn recently restocked their Bone colorway, so they sent over the Remy bag for me to check out. This post is not sponsored, but I did receive this bag as a gift and am a brand affiliate. This post contains affiliate links.

A Refresher on the MANDRN Brand

MANDRN was founded by Kelly Kong. Kelly wanted to create a functional and timeless travel bag made with sustainability and conscious fashion in mind. Mandrn’s bags are handmade by Javanese and Mexican artisans from responsibly sourced leather.

Since my last post, MANDRN has expanded its product line to include Remy (the OG), Atlas (an XL option), Ziggy (a compact convertible clutch option), and a myriad of small accessories (gimme Sol…like, yesterday). I love the expanded line – I think there is truly a belt bag option for everyone!

Welcome the MANDRN Remy Bag in Bone to the Fam

The Remy is the original product that started the MANDRN brand.

It is available in two leather finishes and a multitude of colors. The smooth leather pictured here in Bone is available in five other colors. The handwoven basket weave design comes in four color options.

This bag is sized perfectly for daily essentials – keys, a small wallet, sunglasses, and your phone.

STOP TRYING TO STUFF MORE IN THERE. I’m totally speaking to myself here.

There are thoughtful details on the Remy:

An outside zippered pocket, perfect for a phone. A teeny hidden inside pocket on the top flap. Loops for lip balm and a clasp for your keys. AND a zippered inner pocket.
