Forget the bulky basket the next time you pack up a picnic lunch and head to the park. The Marine Canvas Picnic Bag ($65) by Yield Design is much easier to transport. Once you find your scenic spot, take out your sammiches and unzip the bag - it opens up flat and gives you a place to park your butt. The duck canvas is water-resistant, so you won't find yourself with a damp behind when you've finished your lunch. If a picnic isn't on your day's itinerary, use the versatile bag as a grocery shopper, diaper or kids' bag, or weekender tote.
