What We Like
Roomy yet organized

Comfortable shoulder strap
What We Don't Like
Can only hold an average-sized disposable water bottle
No interior dividers
A little pricey
Baggallini was founded by two flight attendants who wanted practical, organized, and travel-friendly bag options that are as fashionable as they are functional—so it’s no wonder that the brand has become a go-to among travelers with an eye for style. We tested the company’s Everywhere Bagg in a variety of settings (from everyday errands to a day at the zoo and even at a dust-filled Renaissance fair) to see it lived up to its promise.
Design: Plenty of storage
The Everywhere Bagg is a medium-sized carryall that’s functional without feeling clunky, all thanks to its many interior and exterior pockets. Outside, there’s a large zipper pocket and two smaller pockets on the front—one zips closed and the other has a magnetic flap closure. We found these pockets handy for stashing snacks, receipts, and other smaller items that tend to get lost in the abyss of main compartments.
There’s plenty of organized storage, with eight credit card slots, a zipper pocket, a key leash, two pen loops, and a removable radio frequency identification-blocking (RFID) wristlet.
There is also a compartment on each of the two sides. One of these compartments is open, while the other is a zip-up compartment with an expandable inner pocket. We noted that this pocket can hold a standard-sized disposable plastic water bottle but couldn’t accommodate anything larger than that. There’s also a back pocket that unzips at the bottom and converts into a sleeve that can be slipped over a luggage handle—a feature that frequent globetrotters will find especially handy.
The main zipper closes securely across the entire bag, ensuring no stray hands can get inside. Inside the main compartment, there’s plenty of organized storage, with eight credit card slots, a zipper pocket, a key leash, two pen loops, and a removable radio frequency identification-blocking (RFID) wristlet. There’s also lots of space for sunglasses cases, an average-sized travel book, medication bottles, and other common items.
From the zipper pulls to the magnetic closures, we thought that all of the hardware felt substantial. The bag is also fairly sturdy and can stand up on its own, as long as the items inside are evenly-placed. The one design element we felt the bag was missing, despite its spaciousness, was an inner divider to keep belongings more organized, though this is more of a personal preference.
The material is also easy to spot-clean, as we discovered after splashing fruit juice on the outside.

Style: Streamlined as can be
The bag has a sleek look, thanks to its somewhat structured silhouette plus the fact that its zippers and exterior fabric are all the same color. The inner lining, however, adds a fun pop of color—we tested the Portabello colorway, which had a vibrant purple fabric inside.
Because the bag weighs just 1 pound, it’s lightweight and versatile enough for everyday use.
While its design won’t rival a luxury designer handbag, that also means you’ll stay low-key in travel situations where you want to keep your belongings safe by blending in with the crowd.
Comfort: Wearable all day
The adjustable nylon strap feels similar to the material of a seatbelt. It’s durable, comfortable, and pretty strong. And, because the bag weighs just 1 pound, it’s lightweight and versatile enough for everyday use, no matter if you’re commuting to the office or flying across the world.
Portability: Surprisingly versatile
At 11 inches wide, 9 inches tall, and 5 inches wide, we found that this practical purse was the perfect size as an on-the-shoulder carryall or a cross-body bag. Surprisingly, it can also double as a stroller bag: With a strap that can adjust to as long as 52 inches, parents will be happy to know that it’s possible to hang it across a stroller handle safely and easily.
Price: A small investment for peace of mind
With an MSRP of $100, the Baggallini Everywhere Bagg was pricier than other similar bags we tested. However, we think that the price is reasonable for a high-quality, well-designed bag with storage and safety features.
Competition: The best value available
There are certainly more cost-effective options out on the market, such as the slightly smaller Satchelli Crossbody Bag (MSRP $40) that offers the same amount of exterior pockets but not as many interior features; it also doesn’t have the same polished look as the Baggallini. Even more affordable is the Suvelle Lightweight Hobo Bag, which retails for less than $30 but has no exterior storage pockets and fewer interior organizational compartments.
On the pricier side, high-end travel brand Tumi’s Voyageur collection of stylish nylon bags include the Troy Crossbody (MSRP $245), which offers luxe touches including leather corners, metal feet, and monogramming, among others.
Worth the splurge.
Peace of mind is key when you’re traveling, and the Baggallini Everywhere Bagg offers just that. With more than 18 separate compartments, including a removable RFID-blocking pouch, this multi-functional purse transitions well from everyday use to zig-zagging across the globe (and everywhere in between).
