Living the Lug Life in Sri Lanka

I’m back from an amazing whirlwind trip across Sri Lanka. I visited 7 towns over 14 days and explored tea estates, beach towns, jungles and cities. Throughout my entire adventure, I partnered with Lug Life to test out a couple of their popular items. I’ve been a big fan of Lug for years. I constantly travel with their transparent pouches and use Bento to house all of my toiletries. This time, I took along Tango for my travel wallet, and Scoop as my trusty sidekick.


I traveled by car, van and train, and Scoop was with me every step of the way. This small bag packs a big punch. I was able to fit my travel wallet, a novel, a drink, external battery charger, camera, hand sanitizer, toilet paper (essential in Sri Lanka) sunglasses and so much more in this compact bag. It has a built in wallet with card slots, 2 elastic pockets, five zippered compartments and a handy transparent pocket inside. The card slots are actually RFID protected.

I got Scoop in a feathered grey pattern so that it would match with everything, but it comes in a slew of fun patterns and other colours. (In case you wonder why I’m not wearing shoes in that photo, it’s because you aren’t allowed to wear shoes in Hindu and Buddist temples.)

In the rare times that I wasn’t carrying Scoop, I was using Tango as a clutch.

Tango is a large travel wallet, which has it’s pros and cons. I really appreciated this wallet at the airport. It was great to be able to access my boarding pass, passport, cash and other essentials while on the move. I loved the wrist strap for when I wanted to keep my essentials with me, but leave my purse behind. The wallet itself is water resistant, which is always a good thing.

Inside, there are slots for cards, a zippered change compartment, a place for a pen (which is vital during traveling) and a few places to tuck away cash and important documents discreetly. The one con might be that the wallet is a little too large if you wanted to fit it into a smaller purse or fanny pack. Other than that, I absolutely loved this wallet, and it fit nicely into Scoop. Tango is available in new colours and prints including an awesome tropical flamingo print.
