villa cross body bagIt’s Packing Week here at IndependentTraveler.com, and we’re celebrating by giving away a free handbag. One lucky blog subscriber will win a Villa Cross Body bag from eBags.

This is a great bag for travelers because the strap across the chest makes it more difficult for would-be thieves to snatch. It’s also got plenty of pouches and zippable pockets, including interior sleeves for smartphones or sunglasses. The removable strap is 1.25 inches wide and can be adjusted to suit your torso. At 10.5 x 10.5 x 2 inches, the bag gives you plenty of storage space without being too bulky. And it comes in six different colors: black, navy, sunset, eggplant, sandstone and espresso.

    This would be the perfect bag for Mom. It makes me so nervous with her carrying a bag and holding a cane at the same time.

    Would love that bag for my cruisetour to Alaska in 3 weeks. It would be perfect.

    Nice bag!!! Always looking for the perfect bag for traveling. Some are to big, some are to small but this one looks “Just Right”!

    It looks very similar to the PacSafe bags I’ve gotten through eBags, which, by the way, is a great online retailer. Good products, prices, service and delivery.

    I’m always carry-on only whether I travel for a week or 3 months. I’m always asked how I do it.
    Would love to have this bag too as it’s cross body and hands free.

  11. Elinor says:

    I want to be able to design my own bag. No one gets it exactly right. Either the phone pocket is too small or there is no sunglasses pocket or no slots for credit cards or the purse is too large.

    Just love your travel tips and looking forward to using them in August when we travel to The USA & Canada

    Love your tips on traveling Great

  20. Robin Gunkel says:

    Love all the info — thank you!!

  21. I love this bag. When you are vertically challenged this is the type of bag you need when traveling. A place for everything make it easier to find the info you need quickly. For women like me, we need a bag that we can wrap around our bodies, not too big-not 2 small of a bag, would be perfect.
    I am an agent and travel a lot. I would be a good ambasader for ebags.
