Alongside its puffy laptop case and celebrity-approved packable sun hat, Baggu’s canvas duck bag is one of the beloved brand’s original and best designs. I use mine most days: Perfectly MacBook size, with an adjustable shoulder strap, snap-button closure, and an inner zipper pocket, it has long been one of the Strategist team’s favorite commuter totes. I prefer the horizontal version of the bag, which has a wider opening for easily accessing items on the go, and is more convenient for farmer’s market or bodega runs than the (more slender) original. It’s currently discounted in four colors as part of Baggu’s warehouse sale, including this subtly yee-haw embroidered design from L.A.-based painter Jessica Williams that’s currently $27, down from $39. The same discount applies to a green wavy checkerboard design, camouflage print, and brown cow print. It’s definitely worth poking around the rest of Baggu’s warehouse sale, too, with many rare and soon to be out-of-stock products up to 60 percent off.
