Escapes: Built NY's Big Duffel

Here's a great companion for your next escape. Built NY's new Duffel ($99) is made of stretchy wet-suit grade Neoprene. Just as in Built NY's well-known wine totes and lunch bags, Neoprene insulates and protects the bag's contents.

We found this bag to be an excellent multi-tasker: throw in files for the office, snacks and wine for the park, the camera. The low-key design is good for guys who might not want to carry a flashier tote and it is easier to store than a traditional, hard-sided picnic basket.

One big drawback: the bag has only one large compartment. We wish it had a small pocket inside to stash credit cards, keys, and the cell phone.
