Review Monday..Namaste Harlow Bag

This weeks review is of the Namaste bag The Harlow. I purchased it at Stitches South in April.
I can't say enough about this bag and it's features, when I purchased it I knew I had another 3 weeks on the road to see family in the NY area. This bag was so convenient to use in and out of hotels.  It carried my current projects and what I needed for the overnight stay.  Here are the features.




 


I love this little snap closure that keeps the handles together. It makes the bag more comfortable on the shoulder or in the hand.  

 The  hardware for the clips is substantial, this is a swivel hook which ensure the detachable shoulder strap won't get twisted.








Here  you can see the front has one large file pocket, great for files, notebooks, magazines. In addition to the file pocket are to snap close smaller pockets for the little essentials like calculator, phone, hand cream, keys...






This feature was a pleasant surprise, how many purses do we  have that have handles and shoulder straps?The handles aren't usually designed to be removed, well these are with easy but strong snaps. I love this, when using the shoulder straps the handles aren't flopping all over the place. 




  
 The interior is so roomy for anything and everything. Large projects or all the needs of a flight carry on bag.  Notice the two smaller interior pockets..
 This is the exterior zipper pocket, great to secure items within reach. Each side has a pocket as well, which is perfect for the water bottle , 
cords ...
 This is the file pocket, which also has two magnetic snaps.


All Namaste bags come in great colors, if you know me, then you know red was the obvious choice. The bags are made of very durable, animal friendly and easy to clean materials.
" At Namaste we believe that fashion and function can exist together"

Namaste is a family run business out of California.  For more information, purchase a bag or find a retailer click here.
