Hand bags, also called totes, satchels and carryalls, are hand-carried bags with a single primary compartment for carrying items. Hand bags are ideal for grocery shopping, souvenirs or even clothing and travel goods. Some hand bags have internal and/or external pockets for small items such as wallets and phones or documents. Hand bags have long handles so large items that extend beyond the bag can be carried. Hand bags are used for excursions on cruises, food for picnics and just about anything that needs to be carried but doesn't need a formal suitcase or packing method.
