Bag lady be gone

I hate that loaded-down sherpa feeling that most women I know succumb to each morning: handbag, bag for shoes, workout bag, bag for kid’s stuff, maybe a big with lunch…it’s too much! As my Pinterest board proves, I’ve spend the better part of the last few months searching for one do-almost-everything bag. I thought my requests were simple. It needed to be big enough to hold most of a day’s worth of stuff. It needed outside pockets for easy access to wallet, phone, keycard and keys. It needed both handles and cross-body strap. It needed a non-zippered main compartment. This last one proved to be the trickiest. I know there are safety concerns, but convenience trumped it. When I’m holding a kid in one arm and trying to buy or find something with the other, I need to be able to open the bag with one hand.

Then today, I think I found it.

The Driver bag from Chester Wallace. Nothing fancy, and certainly not girly, but it will get the job done. Handmade in Oregon, it’s big, deep, sturdy and useful so I can have one bag for everything all day and still have an arm free for holding little hands or dog leashes or what-have-you.
