In the last winter sales on the Dsquared2 website I bought the Hiro Clutch, which was a 50% off deal. Lately the trend is "accessories" even for men and this is my first bag of this type, because personally I'm not a big fan of small bags, clutch, keychains ecc. In fact, on the daily life, I prefer to walk without heavy weight and accessories but with the essential put in the right pocket.
The holy rule changes when we talk about travel. I have several bags, from messengers to backpack and lately my beloved leather duffle bag. I use it as hand luggage and essentially it's a smart bag where I put my camera stuff, and a "kit" of clothes just in case they lost my main suitcase.
I bought the clutch (that is not a small one) basically to put inside my several battery charges (normally I bring with me lots of devices) medicines and other small packs of camera accessories. In this way I can fill my duffle with different compartment bags, so I hope it will be easier to make security controls. In fact, unfortunately metal detectors are not advanced as they seems, they misunderstood one thing for another. Many times they see wires that looks like ropes, so the guards stop me and want to look inside the bag. I hope using the clutch into the duffle bad they can look better what's inside.
About the clutch this is a really cool and original one, it's also composed by aluminum (for a moment touching it seems like the aluminum you use to pack food) hasn't have any other pocket inside and looks well manufactured.
I can't wait to use it in my next trip, mainly because I will optimizing space inside the travel bags. I tried to show you in the pictures as much details as possible.
