Tote bags are time-tested accessories for the urban woman about town, but whilst they may be perfectly suited for a Sunday afternoon stroll down to the coffee shop or an impromptu bout of weeknight impulse shopping, they tend not to have the all-weather sophistication and functionality of a contemporary city backpack, an issue which these urban totes from Solo New York solve.
The Parker Hybrid Backpack Totes can be worn as backpacks or slung over a single shoulder in elegant tote form, allowing you to transition from the office to happy hour drinks in seamless style, as you toss your 15.6-inch laptop into the padded compartment on your way out. The hybrid design of this urban tote ensures that you don't have to sacrifice style in order to keep up with the tempo of city life, as you can always transform it into a backpack when you need to grab a latte on the go or need to jump on a bike-share to get to the subway station.
So attentive to detail is this hybrid backpack tote that it even features a pair of subtle base pegs designed to protect the sleek black faux leather and canvas from the dirt and grime of the floor when you set your tote down. When you do slip your hands inside to grab an item from inside the tote, you'll find yourself visually aided by the gentle white and grey striped pattern that makes it easier than ever for you to find items hidden at the bottom.
As far as external appearance is concerned, the Parker Hybrid Backpack Tote features gold zippers, buckles and branding that are eye-catching but not gaudy, in a tribute to the confident yet classy style of New York, all in a package. At $69.99, the Parker Hybrid Backpack Tote is a phenomenal pick-up for the stylish working woman in the big city.
