The Split Shift from YNOT is a very stylish backpack/tote combo for those of us who carry minimally on the regular.
- Beautiful materials and construction… hand made bags in Canada with classic, lovely materials.
- Simple organization… this is a fairly minimal bag in terms of pockets, etc.
- Tote or backpack carry… switch off easily
- Slimline capacity… perfect for laptop and folio with some small accessories.
