I wanted one that I could use on a daily basis so that when I travel I won't have to "switch purses".

    I found one on Overstock and received it Tuesday. It also slips onto the handle of your suitcase. It's a little bigger than I wanted, but I'll give it a try.

    For travel, I always go with a smaller cross body style purse, it just feels more secure to me. I usually have a medium size beach bag as my personam item so during boarding I just stick the purse in there.

    My husband always wants me to put his sunglasses, kindle and anything else he cannot carry. They wonder why we need a large purse. I do have a large leather bag I put under the seat and stick my purse inside.

    My husband is like yours! I'll be all organized and then Tom says, can I put my eyeglasses, sunglasses, pocket watch, car keys, wallet etc in your bag!!! We went to Marshall's today and they had a nice selection of Samsonite. Still undecided. The search continues!

    This is what I carry to avoid DW having to carry my stuff..... Every good man needs a 'man purse'.....

    I do the same - only thing I carry in it are a small camera, phone, lipstick, keys and money/credit card. It fits inside my carryon bag and my carryon bag fits under my seat on the plane. So when traveling I just take one piece of checked luggage and one carryon bag (with small purse inside.) I don't like to have to carry anything else around with me when out and about whether it be Aruba, NYC, or Paris. Less is more. My husband likes shorts with alot of pockets for glasses, maps, etc. He never carries a wallet when traveling - money goes in front pocket.

    I'm not sure Peg. Maybe a short email to them will reveal a US distributor or online ordering? The company is located in Dubai. Here is a contact email ssgt1158@emirates.net.ae

    It's so true, we have a good bunch on this forum! I'm very appreciative of all the responses. It's been helpful to hear what brands people have been happy with. I've found some really fun/funky designs online but Tom has vetoed those.
