Travelon Anti-Theft Crossbody Messenger Bag

 

This Travelon messenger bag is TFG approved, and I’ve used it myself during trips across Europe and beyond. This bag is designed for a savvy traveler, from the hidden, slash-proof strap, roomy interior, featuring a ton of organizational compartments and RFID blocking pockets for organization.

And the zippered expansion pocket keeps your camera, water bottle, or sunglasses close at hand. Lots of ways to store your things and the bag itself is still cute-looking! Comes in multiple colors to suit your personal style!

Wrangler Stretch Denim Jacket 

 

The lightweight jean jacket by Wrangler is a huge TFG reader fave. Composed of a mixture of cotton and spandex, it has a comfortable stretch and feels more like a sweatshirt. And right now it’s still wearable by layering with a merino wool sweater and warm leggings or trousers!

Readers have reported that this jacket isn’t stiff, so very soft and the price point is attractive. Comes in other shades and sizes S-XL.
