The ideal travel bag should be like a good travelling partner: durable, flexible and dependable. Enter the Day Bag, the result of a collaboration between seasoned travellers John Baker and Juli Daoust (owners of Mjolk, a lifestyle store in Toronto) and Sarra Tang (designer of Hoi Bo, a line of stylish satchels). Handmade in Toronto’s Distillery District, the bag can be worn three ways – as a backpack, a shoulder bag or messenger-style. Plus, the waxed canvas exterior is water-repellent, keeping your stuff safe and dry, no matter the weather. Now, where’d that passport go?
