The Classic Bag That Has Never Let Me Down

Calling all neat freaks! This is the be-all and end-all of crossbody bags.

I like to think of myself as a very practically minded and organized person. “A place for everything and everything in its place” are the words I live by. Enter LeSportsac’s Deluxe Everyday Bag. It has a place for everything! Little iPhone pocket? Check! Hand sanitizer and car keys pocket? Check! Tissues and sunglasses? In my designated tissues-and-sunglasses compartment, of course! Where is my wallet? Where it always is: in the wallet compartment! Oh, I should bring a book for that long train ride—unzip and expand for extra room! Uh-oh, that time of the month crept up on me! Good thing there's that private inside pocket where I keep back-up!

Lightweight, machine washable, available in so many patterns, and with a strap that can convert this bag from crossbody to shoulder, I stand by this bag 100 percent. I've owned four in the 10-plus years since the first one beckoned to me from a rack at a local department store. It has been with me to many places and through a few life stages (so long bars, hello babies!)—and it has never let me down.

Worried you'll need something a little roomier to keep an extra layer for those iffy days or something more appropriate for your commute to the office, but don’t want to give up those handy little compartments? I've discovered there’s a bag for that, too: the LeSportsac Classic Medium Travel Tote. I own two of these. They, too, have never let me down.
