Since long before her days as a duchess, Meghan Markle has turned to London-based brand STOW to keep her organized while traveling. The 38-year-old Duchess of Sussex is already a major fan of the line’s First Class Tech Case (she called it a “travel essential” on her now-defunct blog, The Tig). But STOW’s brand-new belt bag just landed and it has Markle’s name all over it (figuratively, not literally, of course).
STOW’s new Namib Belt Bag ($535) is compact, practical and stylish, making it the optimal travel companion whether you’re heading to Nice, France, à la the Sussexes or the less fun location of your in-laws’.
Pictured above, the box-shaped Namib comes in hues such as Sahara Tan, Jet, Amber Orange and Montana Blue, and is crafted from fine leather. The webbed, adjustable handle allows the purse to be worn as a belt, fanny pack or over-the-shoulder carrier. Although the bag comes with a strap that matches the shade of each bag, the tribal-print webbed strap seen above (which we love) can be purchased for an additional $41.
Inside, the bag features plenty of compartments to store important travel documents and all the tech you need to stave off boredom during a flight. The Namib includes six small pockets that are the perfect size for credit cards, IDs or cash and two larger pockets that are ideal for your phone and passport. Did we mention there’s also space for assorted cosmetics and a zippered exterior pocket for items you need to be able to reach quickly?
Although we all know the royal family doesn’t carry anything in their purses, we can’t help but think this belt bag would have come in handy on Markle’s recent Ibiza trip.
