Let’s be clear now
MB Greene, a purveyor of lightweight, easy-care organizers, has met the modern-day travel mandate for bag transparency with a new line of see-through bags. The company’s Be Clear Collection includes a 12- by 12- by 6-inch-deep transparent tote, with leather-like straps and trim, and stylish stitching; an 8- by 5- by 3-inch-deep zippered purse with a long detachable shoulder chain; and an 8- by 5.25inch zippered wristlet with leatherette zipper pull and carry strap. The collection also features a regulation-size 4½- by 6½-inch zippered black nylon “privacy pouch” for keeping cash and credit cards under cover but easily accessible for inspection. The four bags can be bought individually or as a package. For times when full disclosure is neither required nor recommended, just slide the tote and/or the other Be Clear bags into any slightly larger opaque carrier (MB Greene sells a variety of styles in bright colors with contrasting trim). MB Greene Be Clear tote costs $38; chain purse, $48; wristlet; $28; privacy pouch, $12; with a package price of $99 for all four bags. Info: www.mbgreene.com.
