YNOT Split Shift Slimline Backpack Tote Review

YNOT Split Shift Slimline Backpack Tote

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.

Be sure to check out the list of my favorite packable daypacks.
