Whenever I travel, I need a good crossbody bag to keep my hands free. I prefer one that has enough space to hold my wallet, passport, and small things like random souvenirs I might pick up while walking. Now this bag I got from the international brand Beside U seems to fit the bill.
This is the Hilgard Crossbody Bag (P3,799) from Beside U. It’s classic black and gray, so it’s easy to match with clothes. You can carry it around as a handbag or shoulder bag with its removable straps. When traveling, I prefer to wear it diagonally across my body for maximum mobility. I want to be able to eat, buy tickets, and take photos freely without being bogged down by a bag I have to hold.
The bag is made of sturdy reinforced nylon. It has a detachable Beside U dog tag for additional oomph.
The bag isn’t big but its very roomy. There are compartments and pockets inside so you can protect more sensitive stuff like your passport from loose items like pens, cologne, lipstick, etc. It expands quite a bit too so it can hold more things than it looks.
One thing that sets this apart from other bags is the RFID Guarded Zip Pocket feature. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is used by thieves to steal credit / debit card information these days. It’s not so prevalent here in the Philippines but it happens a lot abroad. Using a Beside U bag with this feature ensures the safety of your cards and your personal information.
There’s also a big zip pocket at the back of the bag for more storage space.
I don’t like lugging around huge bags when I travel so this Hilgard Crossbody Bag from Beside U is just perfect in terms of size.
Aside from crossbody bags, Beside U has backpacks, totes, duffel bags, and accessories like wallets and cosmetic pouches. Beside U bags are available at Landmark, Festival Supermall, selected Robinsons and SM Department Stores, and Metro Gaisano Alabang. You can also purchase them online at Lazada and Zilingo.
