The hype: 4.7 out of 5 stars; 107 reviews
Reviewers say: "I was originally wary about purchasing a fanny pack in the Tyvek material but I absolutely love it! This bag is high quality with special details like the mesh netting, multiple zippers, and specialized subway card holder on the outside of the bag. The bag is easy to adjust based on waist size and comes with an extended length belt if needed. The pack sits perfectly on my waist without falling forward to sitting to[o] tightly. The design is customer centered and flawless. I would recommend to anyone." —Lo & Sons reviewer

The hype: 4.7 out of 5 stars; 724 reviews
Reviewers say: "This backpack is almost too pretty to use. It can fit a lot without losing its shape. Recently, I took it on a three-day work trip to SF and managed to fit all my toiletries, clothes, and computer stuff without needing any other carry-on item. Bonus, I was able to take it with me to a fancy SF restaurants without feeling dowdy. This is a pricey but worthwhile investment in a lovely bag that will last me for many years." —Lo & Sons reviewer

Best for: The essentials

The hype: 4.6 out of 5 stars; 61 reviews

Reviewers say: "I have and love the large wallet, which fits nicely in the Pearl and allows me to carry a full array of cards for shopping or travel. I wanted to keep my pilot's license and a few items separate in my flight bag so ordered this gem. Now I am finding it's also perfect for pared-down trips of all kinds and it's my new daily. Not too small to lose in a tote. Not too large for my finest bag (The Waverley). It's classic Lo & Sons quality, which is top-notch. You can pay more but it's hard to beat the quality of these classic pieces. Requires no breaking in, but also feels substantive enough to last years. It's a great gift item, for men or women IMO. If you are new to Lo & Sons this is a great starter piece, and you'll see why this is a beloved brand. Get it on sale and you'll start a collection. Lots of brands just don't live up to their price, IMO, but I'd walk by a flashy designer bag in favor of these any day." —Lo & Sons reviewer
Best for: Running errands

The hype: 4.8 out of 5 stars; 3,332 reviews

Reviewers say: "Beautiful bag and design. I'm super petite and have had a hard time finding a great cross-body bag, but I have gotten so many compliments on this bag. The leather is so soft and the bag itself is super spacious — love all of the interior pockets. I also can not say enough nice things about the customer service! I had a very small problem with the strap on my first bag and without question, the company sent me a second bag to choose between and even a return label. I also love to support small, family and Asian-owned businesses! I have recommended Lo & Sons to so many friends and family." —Lo & Sons reviewer
Best for: A night out

The hype: 4.7 out of 5 stars; 1,298 reviews

Reviewers say: "This bag was the MVP of our month-long trip through Southern Europe. Purchased the small size with Saffiano leather and wore it as a belt bag almost every day. Adjusting the larger strap to be a belt bag or crossbody or shoulder bag was very easy. I loved the ability to use it as a clutch for dinners out. It was the perfect size to hold all of our daily essentials — phones, masks, passports, other important cards, and papers, etc. when going through the airport and then I would swap out the passports for sunglasses, hand sanitizer, other small things for exploring various cities." —Lo & Sons reviewer
Best for: Day trips

The hype: 4.7 out of 5 stars; 142 reviews

Reviewers say: "I used this little guy for a day trip and it carried everything! Snacks, an extra pair of shoes, and my day-trip essentials. I love how sturdy and sleek it is!" —Lo & Sons reviewer

The hype: 4.7 out of 5 stars; 1,604 reviews

Reviewers say: "I love my new Lo & Sons Pearl/Nappa purse! Long, adjustable, removable shoulder strap for active days, and wrist strap for evening wear. Two zippered pouches for personal items, money, credit cards, licenses, and passport. Perfect pocket for phone, pens, etc., plus room for a pair of glasses. And…a feature I love…a ribbon to attach my keys to the purse but long enough to open my door without detaching the keyring." —Lo & Sons reviewer
