Cross body large ish work bag

(15 Posts)

I’m struggling to carry my work bag. If I have my folder or laptop in it it’s too heavy to hold in my hand or on one shoulder

I’m looking for a lightweight bag that will hold my A4 folder or laptop, water bottle, purse, phone and small make up bag

Ideally to wear across body so my hands are free.
Budget not huge but can go up to around £100 for the perfect bag

Please help me find this bag, I’ve been looking for weeks and found nothing suitable

Black ideally

Oliver bonas are great for his type of bag but maybe not in black n

Hmmm nothing catching my eye at Oliver bonas

Anyone else seen anything that would fit the bill ?

Knomo worth a look (I looked for one I liked on there then bought one on eBay for fraction of cost and I love it but it was smaller size as I don't like lugging much more than bare essentials in a crossbody, I use a backpack for my work stuff to avoid back/shoulder pain as I walk to work).

My daughter has a man's satchel from Fossil that holds all of that, and she wears it cross body. It's dark brown leather, and cost about that.

Try Mayko bags on Etsy - lovely range of messenger and shoulder bags, and rucksacks. Great quality and not overly £££

Thanks for the links and ideas I’m off to investigate

I just use a longchamp shopper for exactly this- laptop, A4 folder and or notebook, purse phone etc and occasionally my flats/heels if i go out from work and then change shoes later. Perfect size and easily stays on my shoulder (which my Work issued laptop bag never does!)

Just been having a look at the longchamps ! I do like them and they do one with a long strap too the neo
Which model do you have ? And what colour ? I like the raspberry

Anyone with any more ideas ?
I’m still looking 😁

Mine are Fossil too! But I have just bought a Longchamp on eBay.

Been looking at healthy back bags today, they have a bit of a sale on, thinking I might get one for dd.
