My summer activities consist of evenings at the ballpark or at the racetrack, boat rides, picnics on the beach, outdoor flea-markets, etc. In general, activities in crowded and less-than-pristine conditions... My criteria for a summer bag this year were: 1. durable enough to take a beating; 1. small enough to fit on my lap or next to me while sitting in a box seat or deck chair; 2. lightweight, yet all leather (I'm not a fan of canvas); 4. closeable, so I feel my things are safe in a crowd; 3. reasonable in price, so when the inevitable beer does spill on it, it won't break my heart. Here it is! I searched long and hard. Made by the Rawlings Company of same leather from which they make baseball gloves. This is the small size - about 12" wide, 8" tall, 2" deep - it comes in a larger size. Zippered closure, and the inside has a key-clip and zippered pocket. Plain and simple. I think its adorable! Found it on eBags for around $100 - 10% off and free shipping.
