I always look forward to swag from the OR show, especially when I have to stay home and work. This summer Lou did not disappoint. Britney will be jealous when she sees me walking around Aspen. Better than Fendi, Gucci and Prada, my new Scarpa bag is slung over my shoulder with verve.
Lunch time uphilling is all the rage in Europe and these simple packs evolved from that culture. Super light and minimalist, this is a coveted item in the Dawson household. We use them for biking around town, hiking at noon and, certainly not last on the list, a day out on the town for retail cardio.
Ultra corded shoulder straps are integrated with one-motion closure to don pack, and unobtainium mesh side vents are enhanced with reflective accents. Lou and Louie roll their eyes when they see my girlie application of this techie piece but itâ€™s my hottest new accessory. Just the right size for a purse, Italian designers even solved one of my biggest irritants: ringing cell phone lost in bag full of junk. A nifty outside zippered pocket keeps those calls at my fingertips. Now all I have to do is focus. My latte is finished and the shops are calling. See ya!
(Editor’s note: Actually, these types of packs evolved from climbing while wearing nothing but a Speedo, but we’ll let that one go since paparazzi are hanging around.)
