You arrive in Heathrow for a layover, you decide to do a bit of shopping, because when else will you get a chance to pay that much for a bag of chips, magazine and a perfume you’ve never heard of.
But your carry-on is already full, but it’s okay! Because you can take out the interior tote and away you go. Just make sure you’re allowed to carry the tote and the backpack on the plane, but you’re on Casual Opulence so it’s probably not an issue.
This versatile and stylish backpack may just be your next carry-on bag, or rather bags! This handy little bag is actually three in one, with an internal tote that zips in seamlessly until you need it and a small side-body sling that zips off the front.
Combined they make one great bag that holds a lot, but separated you’ve got yourself covered for any situation.
