I rarely make a bag without exterior open pockets but this is an exception. Items stored on the face of the bag only invite pickpockets at busy airports, so two zippered pockets are the only outside storage with this creation. But inside is an entirely different matter. The walls of the bag are well organized leaving the interior’s center open for big bulky items. I’ve constructed my palm tree theme lining with pockets for all my needs. I even built in a pocket for my iPad. A real convenience to this bag is the luggage sleeve which allows the bag to rest on your suitcase handle, not on your shoulder. I used a lot of topstitching and other details to give this bag a sleek designer look. Considering it’s made of vinyl, it has a very upscale vibe, I think.
