The Convertible Bag is an excellent everyday bag that quickly converts from a cross body bag to a backpack. A Mrs H team favourite!

The compact bag size of The Convertible Bag is perfect for errands or a day trip where you don't want to haul around a giant bag.

Need your hands free? Use The Convertible Bag as a backpack by unclipping the strap from its top rings, threading the strap through the back 'tunnel' and re-clipping it to the bottom D-rings. Concerned about the safety of a backpack or want easy access to your bag? You can quickly switch the strap back to its crossbody style.

The Convertible Bag has multiple pockets, with internal zip and slip pockets, as well as a zip pocket on the back and a slip pocket on the front.
