After my week long east coast excursion, I can tell you it’s no peach traveling in the winter. There are just too many little things to keep track of. Where to stick your gloves? Your hat? Your scarf? All those items you don’t want to pack away completely, but just stow temporarily while you fumble your way through the airport. Enter the Worker’s Tote from Parrott Canvas. Equipped with six external pouches, the bag offers an abundance of organized, short-term storage. And yet, even with all the extra room, the tote is still an acceptable carry-on size. Add to that an attractive design, and the kind of thoughtful construction details that guarantee decades of use (18 oz. cotton duck body, double canvas bottom, double stitched and taped seams, heavy-duty brass zipper, handcrafted in North Carolina), and you’ve pretty much got the ultimate travel bag. Oh, and did I mention that it’s less than $40, because there’s that too. Now I just need another reason to take a trip.
