Item of the Moment: Camo Bag
A padded helmet bag for desert combat makes an excellent city tote for Seattle movers and shakers.
Fashion's been nuts about camo lately, and as head into spring (yes, we are heading into spring), the trend isn't slowing down.
Men and women will have a hard time not finding camo prints and camo-inspired prints as new collections show up (check gear from Clarks and Vans to Valentino for him; DKNY and Edun to Lela Rose for her), but you might also consider heading straight to the source.
Federal Army Navy Surplus has tons of the stuff; literal camo translation on tees, pants, and more that'll mix in nicely when and if the confidence level is there. But the accessories department—okay, aisle—makes way for a selection of helmet bags in a variety of camo-ways that just about anyone can pull off.
For under $40, the padded tote keeps your laptop and other devices safe from city shrapnel, and the copious pockets, inner and outer, mean you can pack all manner of rations for the day.
