7 Handbags With Outside Pockets For Your Mask & Hand Sanitizer

At Latico, we pride ourselves on effortlessly balancing form and function. All of our bags feature comprehensive organizational compartments in addition to sleek, intentional silhouettes — down to the compact crossbody bags and sleek wallets. In fact, Latico bags are famous for their practical add-ons, including built-in credit card slots, pen holders, zippered and open pockets, hidden cell phone pockets, and of course, convenient exterior pockets.

These convenient outside pockets in particular are more clutch than ever in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has added two new daily essentials to our usual lineup of wallet, keys and phone: a mask and hand sanitizer. Considering we can no longer leave the house without these five essential items, a handbag with outside pockets is more convenient than ever. Rather than constantly digging around in your purse for your mask when running errands, you can stash these essential items right where you can find them.

Ahead, shop some of our favorite Latico handbags with outside pockets for your new daily necessities.
