Commendations

Sits neatly against my body with few contents, but expands to accommodate lots. The fine weave and lining make it very sturdy, and the wide shoulder strap makes even heavy loads comfortable to carry. One of my favourite bags - ever!

New Internationalist is a magazine well worth reading as it respects the intelligence of its readers. It is independent, lively and properly provocative, helping to keep its readers abreast of important developments in parts of our globe that risk marginalisation. Read it!.
