Don't let the Stride's slender appearance fool you; it is made for volume. Its two main accordion-style compartments expand easily to accommodate the essentials and then some. Carry your passport, currency, phone, lip gloss, and perhaps even a chocolate stash (we won't tell). For extra security when you travel, use the shoulder strap and snap hook to secure the main zippered compartment. The Stride is equally comfortable dressed up or with jeans -- hold it like a clutch or liberate your hands with the crossbody strap.
