Warm Weather Off-Body EDC Handbag Choices from GTM

Although I know it’s not supposed to be a fashion statement, off-body every-day-carry (EDC) should be seasonal and appropriate for the outfit. When choosing my CCW handbags for warmer weather, I look for brighter colors and lighter weight designs.
