7 Perfect Crossbody Bags for Your Next Trip

When you’re traveling, what bag you bring with you for everyday use is just as important as what shoes you wear. I’ve found that crossbody bags are the best for vacations: they don’t get in the way, and they hold a lot.

Alyssa Triple Zip Crossbody Bag

Are bright colored bags your thing? If so, you may want to consider this bag from Alyssa. With 3 outer zippers, plus 2 pockets in the main section, it has ample room for your necessities, and with 17 colors to choose from, there is one for everyone and every occasion.

Amazon User Review: “I bought this for vacation because I wanted a crossbody purse because we would be walking a lot as well as going on theme park rides. I normally carry a hobo purse but I can't say enough good about this purse. The pockets are large and helped me stay organized, I never had to search for things which is a big change. The main compartment is large enough for multiple pairs of sunglasses, a large wallet and a few phones. The tallest side pocket was big enough to hold plane tickets without folding them. I loved how functional it was and it's cute! I was surprised by how much I could fit in the purse and even more surprised that I like it as much as my more expensive purses. Even after vacation I'm still using it!”

Waterfly Packable Crossbody Backpack

Sometimes, practicality wins over fashion sense. While this crossbody backpack by Waterfly may not be the most stylish of my picks, it certainly is extremely functional. It’s rainproof, big enough to hold an ipad, has an outside pocket for your cell phone as well as a spot for your water bottle, plus, it folds up into a tiny little pouch for easy carrying when you aren’t using it! Available in 6 colors.

Amazon User Review: “I just used this to travel in Europe for about 10 days. What a great, durable bag, that kept my stuff dry when it rained (which was quite often). I was able to secure a lock at the top of the zipper to the loop, which gave me the sense of security with it. I would definitely buy it again. It fits a lot and folds up into itself when not needed.”
