I don't know what these are called so I can't produce a photo. It's surprisingly difficult to describe it appropriately and concisely enough for a Google search...

They are fabric bags, but there are four ropes attached to the sides (two per side) that are knotted from inside the bag and form an opening that you can pull shut at the top. Then you slide the ropes around your shoulders and it becomes portable. It just looks like a cross between a tote bag and a backpack. They seem very popular with people who are doing short excursions, running errands, or maybe just going to the beach. Not really fashionable, but quite practical and stowable when not in use.

I have no idea what they are called but I'm positive everyone has seen them by now.

Thanks a lot.

Yes, thank you. No specific name I guess?
