I do love a good reliable throw-it-all-in bag. Since I discovered the drawstring backpack that slings over both shoulders and leaves your hands and hips free (and gives you constant pooch company), I’ve pretty much ditched handbags.

Also, there’s the whole no plastic bags at the supermarket thing. When you’re slinging a drawstring, you’re never caught short with uncarryable carrots.

Hangdog drawstring bags are lined, with double stitched seams.The interior zip pocket is a godsend for keys, phone, $100 bills, etc.

The sturdy poly poplin fabric wears really well and carries a lot – from laptop to snorkelling gear. (Maybe not at the same time).

There’s a bunch of designs. Here’s some:



Or the regular tote style, we’ve got those too.
