We know that we shouldn’t have favorites, but if we admit that we do, this bag would be it. Zippers Galore is a larger and different version of the Classic Convertible.
Zippers Galore is an oversized messenger or shoulder bag that features a unique grommeted double-strap, multiple inner and outer pockets, and optional snap closure, card holder, and keychain clip. The optional center padded divider panel offers great protection for a tablet or laptop. The finished size is about 15” x 18” x 5”. As a workhorse messenger bag, it’s perfectly suited for heavy-duty daily use, like a laptop/work bag or a diaper bag. When we wear this bag around town, we always get compliments on its super unique style and awesome functionality.
