I use this mostly for foreign travel. This little bag is big enough for essentials like wallet, passport, phone, etc. but small enough to tuck into my bigger carry-on when I'm boarding, so that I stay within the 2 bag limit. I can wear it around the airport so that important stuff is accessible and safe for those long layovers. Once I arrive, it serves as a cute enough small handbag. I like the light weight and numerous compartments.
