Long handled bags


#1

anyone know where i can get bags/purses for office wear with long handles - that i can sling across …

all the purses i see seem to have short handles and they are so uncomfortable…

Wal-Mart. Many nice BIG purses with long handles that are comfortable- and even a cell phone pocket!

I find low-cost brand name purses at Ross Dress for Less, all mine are shoulder bags. Staples has handbags and brief case combos that match for professional women.

I bought one of those mini-backpacks at K-mart, chopped off one strap, and lengthened the other as far as it’d go. It works great. May be a little too obviously DIY for some offices, though :wink:

Classic Coach handbags have long (44") straps. Yes, they’re *very *expensive, but if you stick to a classic design, it will never go out of style. I’ve had my original Coach bag for 25 years, and they still make the exact same bag today (the City bag). I considered it an investment when I started my career.

I use this bag from LL Bean. Technically, it’s a travel bag, not a purse, but the small (“regular”) size looks and works just like a purse. It’s strong and tough, very roomy, weighs nothing, and is cheap ($22 for the small). I got mine in black, but it comes in five colors. It does have a long (and adjustable) handle – long enough for me to sling over the opposite shoulder, and I’m tall. :slight_smile:

Check the purses out carefully at the store. Many of those on display have short carrying straps but inside the purse is a long shoulder strap folded up. Don’t reject a product without thoroughly inspecting it.
