The Must-Have Travel Accessory for Women: The Bandolier

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

This is a sponsored post, but as always, all opinions are 100% our own.

We have been huge fans of the Bandolier for over two years now. It's hard to imagine that we used to live without this nifty cell phone accessory. We love it so much that we both agreed that it's still our favorite travel accessory

Not only do we use the Bandolier on our travels, but we also use it on a daily basis when we aren't traveling. At first glance, it looks like this case only holds your phone, but the back has a pouch so that you can store an ID and a couple of credit cards. Bandolier is always coming up with new designs and we love their new collection. See how we styled the Bandolier at home and on our travels.


Whether we are shopping near home or on vacation, the bandolier is always on our side. We especially like the gold chain because it practically matches any outfit.

We took a weekend trip to Disney World and the Bandolier came with us. We took a ton of video and photos with our phone and used the phone often to check on the Disney app. Not having to constantly pull out our phones from our bags or simply not having to hold it unsecured in our hands made the Bandolier super convenient.

Having the Bandolier at the pool or beach is super handy when you want to take photos with your phone. The main reason being that you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping your phone in the sand or water since it's safely secured on you.

People have asked us if we have ever accidentally slammed the phone against something and shattered the screen
