What To Look For in a Travel Bag

Who would have thought my last minute plans to go on a girl’s weekend trip to California in Feb. 2020 would be the last trip I’d make in over a year. And after a year with no travel, even for my half-a-century birthday (so sad), we all are itching to go somewhere, anywhere really!

So we think it’s the perfect time to look for the ultimate travel bag!

I’m sure you get it when I say, having the right travel bag is everything. Not to be dramatic, but the travel purse you take along with you can possibly make or break a trip. Does your current travel bag make the cut? Of course, doing my research this is the overall consensus I discovered.

Key Features in a Travel Purse:
  • Spacious. The first thing to look for is a spacious bag. …
  • Pockets and Compartments. A good travel purse will have lots of pockets and compartments to keep your belongings organized and safe inside your bag. …
  • Versatility. …
  • Durable. …
  • Crossbody. …
  • Messenger Bag.

Yes that all sounds pretty straightforward for a travel bag…well we like to take it a step further…we think you should only need one bag! Of course, I didn’t set out to design the perfect travel bag. I just wanted a crossbody bag that could be worn big or folded, but I ended up creating the perfect travel bag.

So picture it, you are on vacation. What if I want to go out at night? You don’t want to bring the big bulky messenger bag that you used on the plane. Or you want a backpack because we are biking around the town but you still want to look stylish, you’re on vacation. Or maybe you want something that is a great hands-free option that fits close to the body for security reasons. I know what you are thinking, how can all that be in one bag?

What if I said, yes all of that is available in one bag? You might think I’m crazy. The key is in our sleek design and multi-straps options that this simple design turns into your ultimate travel bag. But don’t take our word for it. Look at these great reviews and you have no idea how many messages I get from women all the time as well.

Wear It Your Way, the Lauren
You’ll find that most travel bags are one thing but not the other or they are just basic and let’s admit it, not that stylish typically. The last thing you want to get is a purse that’s super functional but doesn’t match any of your outfits or your personal vibe. While function is very important, choosing a style that’s best for you is a huge consideration when choosing a purse you’ll take on all of your travels. It’ll be in photos, after all!

BONUS: Ours is the most fashionable travel bag you’ll find and it’s made in America!
