Today, I have something different to show you handbag-wise. It's my favorite backpack, a Boy Scout backpack.
I found it several years ago at an antique mall when #2 son was in Scouts and thought he would like it. The price was great, $6.00, not tons of pockets, roomy, great condition, heavy canvas.
I guess it didn't have the cool factor of his day. So I appropriated it for myself.
Handsome says it isn't great, but I love it. There's no digging through various pockets and zips for things like he does. (How many times has he lost his wallet)
I can lash other things on it and the closure fits in two places. There are twill ties on the inside for closing as well. If ripped, it can be resewn (under certain conditions). And the roomie pocket on the front?? I stash my Kindle or a paperback there.
I usually take it when I travel on planes, and invariably, a guy behind me will comment on it. I'm guessing they don't see many women carrying Scout stuff. LOL.
Are you a backpack carrier?
