Why You NEED A Packable Travel Tote- Breezing Through

Last year I started hunting for a good tote I could easily pack in my suitcase but was also a good looking bag. My mom had recently bought the Tumi Just In Case Travel Duffel on one of her trips to Europe. She needed some extra luggage space and it was the perfect bag for the job. After some serious hunting and price comparing, I settled on the Burberry Nylon Shopper in black. I was able to get an incredible deal at The Burberry outlet and the bag was mine.

The Burberry bag is great for traveling and packs really well into any suitcase. It packs flat so I usually just put it on top of everything else in my suitcase and go. When I get to wherever I am going, I can use it for just about anything. It is big enough that I can use it for meetings if I didn’t bring a work bag but small enough that I can take it out site seeing.

I think the best part about my Burberry bag is that it is Nylon. I have gotten dirt and sand on it and everything wipes right off. Once, someone accidentally spilled champagne on my bag but you would never know! The champagne wiped right off and there was never a stain.

The Tumi bag is also great for traveling because it folds up really small. You can put it pretty much anywhere in a suitcase or a purse so it easy to access. It is on the bigger side and does look more like luggage so it’s not as great for meetings or outings.

These bags make traveling a lot easier and can sometimes act as additional luggage. There have been a few occasions when I bought a few more things than my luggage could handle, so I pulled out my Burberry bag and redistributed my stuff. I the was able to check my rolling bag and use my Burberry bag as a second carry on item.

If you don’t already have something like my Burberry bag or my mom’s Tumi bag, I highly suggest you get one. The Tumi bag is still available in several different colors but the Burberry bag is sold out.

    This is great. I was just thinking that I need to find a travel friendly bag because I would hate to ruin one of my nice purses in my luggage.

    This is super helpful now that I’m starting to pack. I have a Longchamp Le Pliage in navy that I like because it folds up, but I also own the nylon Marc Jacobs and it’s fantastic!
