Review: Cool Clutch Handbags PLUS Giveaway

Review: Cool Clutch Handbags PLUS Giveaway

Sponsored post

Every now and then I come across a product that is so amazing that I just want to shout it from the rooftops, because I know that almost everyone needs one (even if they don’t know it yet!) I recently discovered Cool Clutch handbags and I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I’ve been. I raved about them to everyone who would listen in the hairdresser salon last week, and I’ve been telling all my girlfriends too, and I’m not generally one to get so worked up over accessories. Don’t get me wrong I can appreciate a beautiful handbag as much as the next woman, but I’m usually happy having just one or two on rotation (until one of my kids puts crayons into one on a summer day and it can’t be salvaged and I have to buy a new one to replace it.) Yep that’s happened…twice!

So what could be so amazing about a handbag, right?

You may need to sit down for this!

Cool Clutches are super stylish handbags that also double as cooler bags!

I’ll let you take a minute to absorb that and think about all the things you carry around with you at any given time that would benefit from being kept cool. Just think about it! Food…wine…makeup…drinks…wine….medication…your phone…more wine…the possibilities are endless!

Eskies and cooler bags are excellent inventions, but sometimes…(almost always) wouldn’t you rather carry around something more stylish?

I was recently introduced to Cool Clutch and was so impressed with the products on the website that I interviewed the owner – founder Suzanne to find out more about her story of how and why she started Cool Clutch. More to come on that soon!

Fortunately, Suzanne also offered me the opportunity to review Cool Clutch handbags for myself so that I could see if they live up to expectations (and report back to you good people). Suffice to say, I have already purchased an extra three as gifts for friends, that’s how much I LOVE them. In fact, if you and I are friends, I have probably picked out the perfect size and colour Cool Clutch for your next birthday present. Cool Clutches for EVERYONE!

How about I stop rambling and get on with it, eh?

The Cool Backpack

The Madi backpack

The Cool Clutch backpacks are fantastic for travelling or taking to work. There is plenty of room to keep your lunch, drink, make up or even medication cool whilst travelling. I chose this one for when I travel interstate with my kids to visit their grandparents so I can pack their snacks and drinks and save a fortune on food when we are on the plane. But it has come in very handy for everyday use. It is stylish and comfortable to carry for almost any occasion.

It features the removable 3mm insulated pocket for your cool items, leaving lots of space for all of the everyday items you need to carry such as your purse, phone, book etc (all safe and separate from any items that may have condensation on them).

The Cool Clutch Wine Cooler Handbag

The Joy handbag

Seriously! Who doesn’t love wine?

The Cool Clutch Wine Cooler Handbag is designed to hold and keep the bladder of a cask of wine cool. The polyester interior is like any other designer handbag and has two main compartments, side zipped pocket and 2 side open pockets. However, the Cool Clutch Wine Handbag also has a unique zipped pocket with a 3mm insulated wall and waterproof aluminium foil lining (like the backpack above) and can hold and keep a wine cask bladder cool completely incognito!

There is a very nifty side pocket that conceals the hole where the tap pokes through that can be fastened with the press studs, so no one will ever guess!

The Cool Clutch

The Sarah handbag

This is one of the ones I bought for a friend (and desperately want to keep for myself. (I bought another in black for another friend – it’s just gorgeous!) This is a Cool Clutch and is the very first bag creator Suzanne started with (and where the ideas for all of the other different types of bags has sprung from). It is perfect for carrying a bottle of wine or bubbles in style to a party (but obviously can adequately carry other similar sized things if the mood so takes you!)

The Cool Collection

Lastly, I chose the Crystal box clutch from the Cool Collection because a) I wanted to show you what a diverse range the Cool Clutches come in (seriously there are so many more you NEED to check out and b) I fell in love with it the minute I saw it on the website. And let me tell you – I was not disappointed! It is even more beautiful in real life.  My photographs don’t do it nearly enough justice…but let’s take a look!

The Crystal handbag
The metal shoulder chain is also removable.

The Cool Collection range is stunning on the exterior (as you’d expect from a box clutch) but as you’d expect by now from a Cool Clutch they have the same 100% waterproof lining and insulation. Can you believe that something this beautiful can also double as a handy little cooler bag for your makeup, phone, medication etc?

Mind blown, right?

So, on the ever so slim-to-absolutely-impossibly chance that you didn’t see something here that you immediately fell in love with, let me suggest that you head straight to the Cool Clutch website without delay! There are over 70 different colours and styles to choose from. (Be warned, you may have a list of wants longer than your arm before you leave though!)


Well, it just so happens that I’m not the only lucky one around here because Cool Clutch want to giveaway 2 handbags! One to one lucky winner, and one to a friend of their choice!

For your chance to win, all you need to do is head to the Cool Clutch website and have a really good look through their range. Then come back here and complete the entry form below.

  9. I l?ve Marie red Cool Tote as perfect to fit in essentials in my handbag and then then cool pocket to keep my drinks cool either to keep up with my water intake or special drink for a night out at a dinner party.

  13. I think I would have to choose the Crystal box clutch, although it was close. I love so many of them.
    I would share this prize with my mum, as she has just retired and is going to start being daycare for my son. She would use these all the time for my son’s snacks.

  23. I love the wine cooler handbag, I would love to have a sneaky vino to make watching the kids at the park more enjoyable. And so I don’t care so much when all four of them climb onto the flying fox together. I would love to give one to my friend Belinda, who could also do with a wine on the go.

  29. The Joy Bag for me, definitely! In fact very similar to a bag I have which goes with everything but with it’s dual purpose, it would take pride of place in my small collection and give me JOY. Nifty idea for my friend Sharon Manson who often needs to carry medication and lumps around a huge bag so she can carry cold packs in it.

  33. The Madi (Black) Cool Backpack,
    Would be best for me!
    With 2 little boys, another on the way,
    My hands are full enough, you see!
    A backpack with an insulated section,
    Is a bonus for a bag that’s hands-free.
    And the black is stylish enough to be a staple,
    I’m sure you’ll all agree!
    The second bag, should I be lucky enough to win,
    Would go to my mum for she,
    Is a carer to my dad and needs a functional bag,
    Instead of her old undersized bag from me!

  34. I adore the clutch backpack, perfect for day or night, markets, travelling or shopping.
    Looks stylish so could be used for going out as well.
    I’d gift the other to my daughter because if I didn’t I know she would steal mine. Many thanks for the chance all the bags are fantastic ?

  35. The wine cooler handbag such a brilliant idea!

  36. Love the look and design of the cool clutch bag – so elegant and pretty, and so useful! No-one would know that I had my sneaky wine supply hidden away inside this beautiful creation!!

  37. Love the Katie Wine Bag (Black) what a great idea this is.. would be great taking to restaurants instead of walking in with a brown paper bag.

  62. My shoulders are lopsided

    My muesli bar has melted
    And warm drink makes me yawn.

    A madi backpack looks great
    And solves my posture woes
    My lunch is better chilled out
    As everybody knows.

    And as for who else needs one
    My sister is my pick
    With three kids and a bunch of jobs
    There’s always someone sick

    I reckon she carries medicine
    Much more than coins or lippy
    Please help her keep it nice and cool
    For when her kids get trippy.

  63. That cool backpack is a work of genius! I can think of so many situations where that would have been a perfect solution. It would be brilliant for travel. Such a treat to be able to carry food (I have a fussy eater) out to a restaurant without looking like I am carrying a lunch box.
