When my friend Jo bought an El Porto bag from me last year (round about April), she said she needed it for carrying her stuff about with her. Jo is a fitness instructor and walks everywhere and only occasionally takes the bus. So the El Porto bag was the ideal solution with its many pockets and the spacious body. For normal use I would say a bag like this would probably have lasted a little longer, but not when you walk with it about 20miles a week. Definitely not. I have to share the photos before and after with you as I've never ever seen a bag being so used as hers:
and this is what she carries around with her to work, unbelievable, but it all fits in.
