After years of annoying me about learning to snowboard, a group of my best friends have talked me into buying gear and learning to board. Not that I don’t want to. But the thought of spending so much time on my bum in the freezing cold snow is not enticing at all. Sadly enough, the enticing part is the gear I get to buy- coat, pants, hat, goggles, gloves, board. Yay! Just one more area to spend money. I probably will care more to match all my gear than to actually learn the sport. I can see it now… I wake up and do my hair, put on all my matching gear, and go down to the lodge by the fire- look around- and decide I am the best damned dressed boarder of them all. Unfortunately, that will get me no where on the slopes.
So while I think ahead to my near future days of boarding, I started to think that I may need a cute bag to go along with my experience (yes, another excuse to buy a bag). When I imagine myself at a Ski Lodge this winter, I see myself carrying the new Coach Soho Large Ski Hobo. Although white is so hard to keep sparkling clean, I still would opt for the white hobo which is trimmed in light and soft rabbit fur. The rest of the bag is made from quilted Signature fabric and has a posh tab with magnetic snap and dogleash closure. Once you open up this beauty, you will find fabric lining, a zip pocket, and a multi-function pocket. Dimensions are 15 1/4″ for the strap and 14 1/4 (L) x 12 1/4 (H) overall. Don’t be fooled, this is quite the big bag. If you want to look posh on the slopes (rather in the lodge), buy this bag in black, brown, or white for $498 via Coach.
