It’s great to see the sights, but it’s even better when your bag is a sight to behold, as well. Ultimately though, when you’re exploring a new place, you need convenience above all else. Fortunately with these styles, you don’t have to sacrifice fashion or function. Their zippers and pouches are key for keeping your valuables protected, while still easy to find. Open bags are a strict no-no on vacation, especially in packed, touristy cities. Odds are if you’re sightseeing, you can already be identified a tourist, so there’s no need to make it any easier for crooks to steal from you!
