Haerfest A3 Shoulder Sack
What with all the fees for checked bags these days, the name of the carry-on game is generally as-big-as-you-can-get-away-with. Of course, once you touch down, you're stuck walking around with the world's largest handbag. But not if the design duo behind Haerfest have anything to do with it.
New York-based brothers Tim and Dan Joo have created a classic soft-leather and cotton shoulder bag (in black, navy, and grey) that folds completely flat ($380). Slip it into your roll-on or into that bottomless pit you're passing off as your personal item, and you'll be able to unfold it on arrival and sightsee footloose and backache-free.
