Pockets, pockets, pockets.
As with most neuroses, my obsession with bags and storage can be traced back to my childhood.
When I began first grade, I noticed lots of the kids in my class had these magnificent pencil holders.
Do you know the ones I'm talking about? Not just a canvas pouch, or plastic bag, but those plastic boxes with dozens of compartments, pop-up eraser holders, pop-up date tracker, pop-up pencil sharpener, pop-up top, pop up everything.
I used to think, "That's a pencil holder? Are you kidding me?! That's more like a aircraft carrier I can play with on my desk!"
And there I was just using the front pocket of my bookbag like a sucker!
While I was reaching into my bag to pull out a pencil or crayon or what-have-you, these other kids just pressed a button on their amazing, toy-like devices sitting on their desks.
After the relentless hounding only a fad-crazed child is capable of, my parents eventually succumbed, and I got an awesome pencil holder, just like everyone else. Mine even had a pop-out thermometer.
Not only was I amazed with its toy-like appearance, but I was also mesmerized by the fact that it had so many hidden compartments. You could put all kinds of stuff in there!
"What stuff?," you may ask.
I don't know... stuff!
And thus began my neurotic obsession with storage and hidden compartments, which brings me to today's DIVOT deal: the Adidas adiZero Stand Stand Bag.
OMG pockets!!!!! Pockets inside of pockets.
And the stand legs? They automatically pop out and retract! On my pencil case, everything could pop out, but nothing popped in automatically. The Adidas adiZero has legs that pop in automatically. Aw, snap.
The bag also comes with double straps to make walking the course as easy as carrying your bookbag to school.
