"IT' bags for Fall-no longer seem relevant ...because what most people really end up carrying-most of the time-are either spacious tote bags-or smaller back packs -the size that don't scale Mt. Everest.
For cooler temps-swap out the white/beige canvas classics for more weather tough textiles and darker tones...
|L.L. Beans Hunter canvas open tote and iconic boat haulers are seen all over the world, where ever we go!|
.Adding to the sturdy last forever bags-darker tones-like this Maine Warden's Tote bag currently available in Olive drab...$59 (can be monogramed too). The details=made of tough 1200 denier shell w/ thermoplastic and - ez clean lining keeps contents dry, an extra layer on the bottom, adjustable shoulder straps and zipped top...and that IF&W shield is same one Maine Game Warden's have on their uniform.
|Fjällräven's Kanken backpacks are super popular in the USA-but in a lot of Western Europe we visited this past summer-they are not...interestingly enough where iconic coated canvas LV haulers still have cachet. Regardless The totes are standouts too-we think as they are made of the brand's HeavyDuty ECO waxed G-1000 material + organic cotton that protect the contents from the wetter weather elements. In loads of colorsand five sizes ($100-$175)-w/ details like leather trim, zippered inside pockets, external zipped pocket with key hold-and even padded foam bottom protects contents and keeps the bag's shape.|

Zipped top, 2 external zipped pockets, pass through external pocket for storage and easy access-handy when traveling with passports/tickets, -lined with MK camo liner=very cool. $89.95|
