    Not a day goes by where I don't recite to myself "Phone, Wallet, Keys" before heading out the door. Once upon a time, that meant having to remember to grab my phone, wallet, and key fob. And, more times than I'd like to admit, I would inevitably forget something. Not anymore, though.

    Thanks to Dagne Dover's bestselling Mara Sling ($70), I never walk out of the house without my phone, wallet, or keys. And it's something I'm grateful for every day.

    The Mara Phone Sling is a rectangular cross-body pouch that is made of neoprene. It's sold in five core colors with occasional seasonal shades (like the pretty peach from a past season, below).

    Curious as to why a seemingly simple crossbody is renowned for being so convenient? The zippered pouch features a mesh pocket on the outside that easily fits an iPhone 12, as well as a D-ring to connect your keys. Inside, there are three card slots, an elastic loop for lip balm, and a large side pocket that extends almost the length of the bag.

    Now, given the sling is merely 7.5" L x 1.5" W x 4.5" H, you might be wary of its ability to store anything more than your phone, wallet, and keys. But I assure you, its capacity is much more impressive than meets the eye.

    As much as I love the Dagne Dover Mara Phone Sling and could speak endlessly about it — did I mention that it has an adjustable strap that can be extended anywhere from 14 to 28 inches? — I'll let a few reviewers help convince you of this bag's awesome utility too.
