Look Mom, No Hands!

At Jack Georges, we know that just about every aspect of our lives now involves multi-tasking.  That means we need our hands free - for texting, taking pictures, shopping, hailing a cab, or a million other reasons.  We also have to carry devices, gadgets, and essentials any time we step outside of our homes.  That is why we continue to expand our collections with chic and comfortable hands-free cross body bag options.  These bags boast Jack Georges’ signature high quality leathers and functional designs so that you can enjoy the freedom of being hands-free every day.

With a name like Voyager, it’s no surprise that this collection includes hands-free bag options.  After all, the collection was designed with adventurers in mind – whether their journeys are on the other side of the world or running simple errands nearby.  Made from hand-stained vegetable retanned leather that grows in character and beauty as it ages, Voyager bags are designed to fit today’s active lifestyle.  One of the most popular choices is the Large Crossbody #7205.  This spacious, casual bag features a main compartment that could easily accommodate your portable device, magazines, books, or even files if you need to stop in at the office.  Additional pockets inside will keep your personal items within easy reach.  Zippered pockets and a front flap pocket add greater function to the bag’s contemporary and rugged silhouette.  It’s a great choice for stylish professionals that need a bag to keep up with their changing needs.

One of our favorite hands-free bags for ladies is the Slim Crossbody #1831 from the SOHOSOHO Slim CrossbodyCollection.  Made from silky soft, tumble milled American Napa leather, this petite bag is a smart choice for a day on the go.  It has just enough space for the things that you need every day, like your wallet, sunglasses, mobile phone, mini-tablet, or a book that you can enjoy while commuting or spending time at the park.  A three-way-zip compartment on the back of the bag has slots for credit or store cards that you may need while shopping.  It’s a great way to keep things organized and within easy reach.  With a clean silhouette and color options like black, brown, and red, the SOHO Slim Crossbody will complement any look. 

Looking for something a little more crisp and defined?  Ladies love our Chelsea Silka Crossbody #5880.  It delivers a healthy dose of sleek sophistication.  With scratch and stain resistant saffian grain leather, its framed structure is offered in traditional black and taupe but also in striking colors like cobalt blue, orange, and red that add a touch of fun to your overall look.  These vibrancy colors also make the bag easy to spot whenever you set it down at a restaurant.  With an adjustable shoulder strap, an open outside pocket, and zip closure, it is designed for convenience as well as style.

Need something more traditional?  The gender-neutral Voyager Crossbody Bag #7312 is a classic casual option for everyone.  This popular bag offers a deep compartment with ample space for your tablet, books, or whatever you may need to carry during your day.  A zippered side pocket can hold your mobile phone or your wallet.  Not sure about the weather?  If your umbrella has a clip, attach it to the side D-ring and keep the inside of the bag open for other things.  This cross body is a great choice for daily use, as its supple but sturdy buffalo leather is resilient enough to endure the demands of a busy day.  It’s the ideal companion for a coffee house date or other relaxed outings.

Our next bag is the perfect crossbody for the hopeless romantic.  Also from the Voyager Collection, the #7513 Crossbody Bag conveniently doubles as a Wine Bag whenever you need it.  As a crossbody, it has plenty of room inside to hold a tablet or small laptop, books, accessories, and your essentials.  An adjustable shoulder strap and zippered back pocket add more function and usability. And as a bonus for those that want and need a wine bag every so often but don’t see the need to have a bag limited to that single purpose, this one is a great solution.  It is perfectly proportioned to hold standard size wine bottles and features a fold-out padded divider in the center that keeps them from clanging against each other.  Open side pockets are designed to store your wine opener or even a portable wine aerator.  This bag is perfect if you live in a state or province that allows you to bring your own wine to a restaurant or if you enjoy taking wine to your social occasions.

The final hands-free bag in the spotlight is the Flapover Handbag #B2648 from our Belmont
Collection.  With the body and lines of a classic purse, it can be worn across the body or on your shoulder hanging at your side.  The bag fits comfortably in a business environment and easily transitions to a casual setting in the evening.  It also looks great with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  Hand made from strong and sturdy American bull hide, the inside features luxurious suede lining with ample room for your things.  An open back pocket, an additional pocket beneath the flap, and a zippered compartment inside allow you to organize things.



Whether your needs are personal, professional, or somewhere in between, the ideal hands-free bag should be a balanced blend of style and function.  Jack Georges has carefully designed hands-free choices that fit every need and lifestyle.  Along with the cross bodies above, we offer messenger bags and totes that also allow you to go hands-free.  Take a look at the options on our site and you’ll easily find the right match to keep your hands free for all the other things your busy life demands.  Of course, our lifetime warranty on every product we make gives you peace of mind so that hands free can also be worry free.
