The Jet Pack bag will get you where you need to be with style for miles. It’s got a vertical format with plenty of room for papers, magazines, a camera, you name it. There’s a front pleated pocket with a twist lock closure, a zippered main compartment, and a double duty strap. Clip the strap to the top for a shoulder bag, or convert it to a backpack by attaching the same strap in a different configuration.
