Handbag Styles

The trend is to go small but many women dedicate a seat in their car just for their handbag Watch out for back problems.  If you load up one of our Hobo handbags, Shoulder Bags, Cross-body handbags, or bucket handbags watch the weight. There is no standard for weight but it is recommended that children only carry 10-20% of their body weight.  The same recommendation applies to adults, so your packing weight should be no more than 20% of your body weight.  So if you weight 150lbs, your maximum pack weight would be 30lbs. If you choose a hobo purse style or a leather hobo purse they offer limited packing capacity. However, for the active individual, involved in activities like hiking, bicycling, hunting, fly fishing,  or any other strenuous outdoor activity you should only carry 10% of your body weight. Large handbags can carry a lot of weight but they offer little support.  You can always consider one of our female backpacks or one of our womens messenger bags as they offer much better support. Purchase one of our large handbags and we will donate 2% of each sale to Breast Cancer Research. Not only will you look great but you will feel great by helping us find the cure.
