Gregory Gran Turino bag, $24.97,

The Daily Deal for Saturday, September 27, 2008

Got grocery bags? If you're in Seattle, Washington or a number of other U.S. cities considering following the northwestern trailblazer, you might be replacing your plastic bags with something more permanent. The Gregory Gran Torino bag sounds like a great answer; it combines "the best features found in briefcases, messenger bags and urban backpacks and blends the functionality into a look that's distinctly contemporary and complete."

It's high praise from a bag manufacturer, of course, but it's a good deal so why not check it out? Other retailers had the bag listed at $74.95 to $128.95, so this is a screaming deal at $24.97 at It includes a laptop sleeve, waterproof outers, and lots of room for books or groceries. Bike to class, bike to the coffee shop, bike to the grocery store, and your things will be fine. Best of all: no 20 cent surcharge to carry home your bagels and brussels sprouts.
