Shoulder bags and purses to keep your valuables close at hand

When you need a simple, unobtrusive way to stow your belongings when you run out of the house, a lightweight bag or purse you can sling over your shoulder is about as convenient as it gets. You can move between work, home, and the gym or campground without ever having to wonder where you put your phone, wallet and keys.

If you’re a fan of organizing the contents of your bag into compartments, a bag with interior pockets is the way to go. If a larger shoulder bag is more your style, look for a roomy tote-like bag with a laptop sleeve so you’re never caught unprepared. And if you need a bag that can shrink itself down for ultimate packability, some shoulder bags conveniently stuff into their own pocket so you can bring them with you without sacrificing precious packing space in your luggage.

It’s time to pack up your things and get outside. Check out trusty bags from brands like MEC, Pacsafe and Fjallraven to find your new everyday storage go-to. And it’s never a bad idea to stash your pockets with essentials like bug spray, sunscreen and a few tasty snacks to become your own (and everybody else’s) best friend on sunny days in the park.
