Your go-to totes and cross-body bags may be perfect for day-to-day errands, but when you’re on the road, the best travel purses can make a world of a difference. Dedicated travel bags come in all different shapes and sizes—fanny packs, laptop backpacks, cross-bodies, work totes, and more—but generally feature multiple compartments (hi, mesh pocket) to help you stay organized, a (usually convertible) strap that’s comfortable enough to wear all day, and even anti-theft features.
Go ahead and scroll right past the stereotypical tourist bag that goes around your neck, though. Today there are plenty of stylish options on the market. And to help you find the best ones, we scoured top retailers for the most highly rated options, plus talked to frequent fliers to see what they rely on when they’re logging miles.
From smaller cross-bodies that leave your hands free for other luggage to spacious totes that allow you to pack more and water-repellent backpacks that’ll see you through turbulent weather, we’ve rounded up the most reliable and stylish travel purses out there.
