I'm looking for a new everyday bag/purse. I need something practical that I can throw in the washer on gentle cycle if it gets muddy on the outside or sticky on the inside. I need it with a long enough strap to throw it across messenger stye, but I only want about half the size or smaller than a messenger bag. I'm usually drawn to Eddie Bauer only because I can get a feel for it irl--but I'm open to buying one online this time around. I'd like something a little more stylish, but not so much that I'd look like a tourist in the woods.<br><br>
Anyone have any suggestions?

Although it does say to surface wash, not throw in the washer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:<br><br>
I have the Trinidad for briefcase/laptop and a good friend has a smaller one for her purse. Made in the USA <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/tiphat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Tiphat">:<br><br>
Maybe you'd like the <a href="http://http//www.overlandequipment.com/everyday.php?name=donner/index.htm" target="_blank">Donner</a>? My bag has the same side pockets and it's great for throwing in a water bottle & not having it sweat on all the stuff inside the bag.

The Overland bags are just what I'm looking for! Thank you! And I love that they're made in the USA. I'm thinking the jojo. REI carries this brand, so I'm going to head over there and get a feel for them, even if they don't have the one I want I can at least get a feel for the quality and materials. The other suggestions are adorable, but I do need something I can do a somersault in and not lose everything <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">.<br><br>
