The 10 Best Travel Purses
This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in March of 2018. When you are traveling, the demands on your purse can be quite different from your everyday home and work life. You need a bag that stands up to being lugged through airports, holds essentials securely, and still feels comfortable, even after you've been carrying it for hours. Our selection includes a variety of styles to suit every taste, including a few unisex options. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Most people have no desire to bring their expensive handbags when travelling, because the bag you bring on a trip will be put through the ringer. Comfort and function are more important than style, although we found quite a few stylish options. These bags are all made from materials that are easy to clean and comfortable to transport in a secure way.
The Travelon Anti-Theft Classic remains a top choice for its excellent security features like a slash-proof body and even compartments that lock, all while not sacrificing on the style.
We decided to remove the Berchirly Organizer from the list due to reported issues with the strap breaking, and bring the Mini Cat Crossbody, a smaller option for trips where just the essentials are needed.
The Better Boarding Bag Primarily geared towards airline travel, but also useful for long road trips, the Better Boarding Bag is geared towards keeping your essentials organized and accessible. It can even hang from the seat back in front of you after take-off so you can easily find your tablet or reading materials. It has two water bottle pockets, but it might be a bit bulky to use as an everyday bag while travelling. hammacher.com
Tumi Carmel Crossbody Known for their high-end leather briefcases, the Tumi brand also offers a variety of lightweight nylon purses like the Carmel Crossbody. There's a good number of organizing pockets in this model, but it doesn't have RFID blocking. It does feature the Tumi Tracer, a permanent metal plate with an ID number that helps reunite lost belongings with their owners. tumi.com
