    The Strapfield is a super versatile design which converts from over the shoulder to backpack in one easy swoop. It’s also super easy to convert from backpack or shoulder bag to a cross body bag too! Sporting loads of pocket options, you can choose from one main Front Slip Pocket or divide it into two, and even add a front Cargo Pocket! Or if you don’t want that many pockets, simply add some stylish trims instead. The front also has a Zipper Pocket. At the back of the bag there is a newly designed Quick Access Phone Pocket. You can also add some Trims to the back if you wish.

    The spacious interior closes with a recessed zipper. Inside there is an additional Zipper Pocket. If you are like me and LOVE pockets, you can add Pocket Supplement A for even more pockets!

The Small is fantastic for everyday use and the Large is great if you need to carry lots of extras for your kids or when travelling or are just someone who likes to schlep around their kitchen sink!

    Both sizes will fit water bottles (depending on size and shape of the water bottle you choose) in the Front Slip Pocket, however for larger or taller water bottles I recommend not dividing the front pocket into two.
