Lugano Messenger Bag
This casual styled bag is perfect for international travel when you want to deter petty thieves but don’t want to get a fiddly and potentially heavy anti-theft bag. Instead, the flap top with magnetic closure hides the zippers of the main and front compartments from plain view.
The Lugano Messenger Bag is currently available in smoky quartz, sapphire, garnet and emerald. The measurements are 9″ x 9″ x 5″ and weighs just a little over 1 lb. This is the smallest of the Voyageur crossbody bags.
Inside the main compartment you’ll find a zippered pocket, a slip pocket, a smartphone pocket, a pen sleeve and a key fob. The front pocket is zippered and U-shaped and acts as an organizer pocket for all your small items that you need at your fingertips. You’ll find another phone pocket and pen loop here along with card slots. A detachable ID tag fob and holder in front and just under the flap can be removed if you use this as an everyday bag. The back features a full length open top pocket to store a map or guide book. A zippered pocket built into the outside of the top flap is nice for carrying tissues, keys, etc.
A leather grab handle on top lets you grab it and go.
